Meshuggah trailer posted


Meshuggah (2008) Mårten Hagström, guitarist for Sweden's revered and renowned technical extremists MESHUGGAH, checks in about the band's first-ever DVD, Alive, produced and directed by Ian McFarland of Killswitch Productions:

"So we finally got around to making a live DVD. People have been asking us to make one for ages it seems, so we guess it was about time. It was quite a different experience to have all those cameras around for those shows but in the end, we feel it really came out great in a 'not so flashy but more toward the gritty' type of way. More true to what we are about. Capturing what a MESHUGGAH show is like. For real... without the trimmings, so to speak... just the way both us and Ian wanted it. Enjoy!"

View the official trailer below.

Alive will be a 2-disc set with a DVD + an audio CD, scheduled for release in the U.S. and Canada on February 9th, 2010. The DVD is comprised of live concert footage of the band performing tracks off their Billboard Top 200-charting 2008 release, obZen, and their time-tested career staples shot during MESHUGGAH's 2009 North American tour and 2008's performance at the Loudpark Festival in Tokyo. The result is a visceral, visual abduction into the band's metric insanity-in-action. Gracefully interlacing the live tracks are behind-the-scenes vignettes shot in black & white that give Alive a concert film feel that is unlike many of the live DVDs currently on the market.
