Meshuggah To Release Live DVD

Technical metal act Meshuggah will be releasing a live DVD later this year according to drummer Tomas Haake. Speaking with The Hornet he said: "We'll have a Live DVD probably late spring, early fall. As far as new stuff, we haven't started recording anything yet. We have a few things that didn't end up on Obzen, just a few parts that we want to use on the next album. Its all in the vain of what we do.
I'm kind of pumped to start recording again, Hopefully by the fall we will start recording with the album being released later in 2010."
