Meshuggah will release their new album, 'Koloss', on March 26th 2012 through Nuclear Blast Records. The album will see a return of the math Metal gods and will be their first studio release since 2008's critically acclaimed masterpiece 'Obzen'.
"As always, we try to take our music in a slightly different direction with each album and with 'Koloss' we feel that we really nailed what we were going for. Organic brutality, viscera and groove all crammed into a 54-minute metalicious treat, best avoided by the faint of heart!!" – Thomas
