Meshuggah Reveals "Catch 33" Tracklisting

Swedish experimental extreme metallers Meshuggah have posted the following message on their official web site:

Dear friends/fans/accidental metal-browsing drop-ins! Ridiculous long since last, we know! Just wanted to leave some long overdue droppings on the never-shiny plate that is Meshuggah news! We have quite a few European dates set (will be posted shortly in tour section). Among those are both club dates as well as bigger festivals etc. We don't know yet if we'll be coming over to tour the U.S this spring/summer! It's still pending and if we get good offers it might happen! If not, we'll at least look into coming over this fall!

As most of you have probably figured out, "Catch 33" is not really a 'live material' album, but more of an experiment of sorts! So, if we'd come over to the U.S now, we'd be playing pretty much the same set as last time and we'd much rather be coming over with a fresh new set after completion of coming full-length! (no working title yet). Still, as I said — it may very well happen for "Catch 33" as well!

We understand that the album or at least parts of it has leaked out! Not really a big surprise! It always seems to happen to us! Still, we're trusting and hoping that you guys will all still buy it once it's released!

We have a company working on a video for the title 'Shed', but the progress is a bit slow at the moment so we don’t really know how it's turning out! We'll keep you updated on the progress of it!

"Catch 33" is due on May 16 in Europe and May 31 in the U.S. The follow-up to 2002's "Nothing" contains one continuous 47-minute song divided into 13 parts and is said to be "musically the opposite" of the group's 2004 EP, "I."

"Catch 33" (view cover) track listing:

01. Autonomy Lost
02. Imprint Of The Un-Saved
03. Disenchantment
04. The Paradoxical Spiral
05. Re-Inanimate
06. Entrapment
07. Mind's Mirrors
08. In Death - Is Life
09. In Death - Is Death
10. Shed
11. Personae Non Gratae
12. Dehumanization
13. Sum

The artwork, which was designed by Meshuggah drummer Tomas Haake, is "a visual compliment of sorts to the album title, i.e the paradoxes/negations/contradictions of life and death (as we see it in our finest moments of unrestrained metaphoric interpretation) that the lyrics deal with!" according to Haake.

New Meshuggah Album Nearing Completion

Swedish extreme experimental metallers Meshuggah published a status report on their website regarding their upcoming album “Catch 33”, due April 11th:

Hi all and sorry for this e x t r e m e l y long time of no updates about "Catch 33"!
Nah.. we´re not sorry actually, you should know us by now... and we got more important things to do than write useless information on the news..hehe, we´ve been doing the same fucking thing all this time - workingwithcatchthirtythree - so we don´t wanna repeat ourselfs right?!

Anyway, we just wanna tell you guys that we are on the l.a.s.t. couple of weeks work, "just" some pieces in the puzzle that needs to be forced to fit with some help from the crowbar of love... some mixing and then we should be done. We said "should" didn´t we..??

The song is of course a smashing radio hit and should be in the top 3 most aired songs ever within 2 weeks time.

"Alone in the Dark" is based on the best-selling Atari video game series of the same name. The soundtrack will feature some of today’s best Metal bands such as Dimmu Borgir, Shadows Fall, Fear Factory, Machine Head amongst others, and it will be featured on a double disc format.

With the help of his ex-flame, archeologist Aline Cedrac (Tara Reid), and his bitter rival, government agent Richard Burke (Stephen Dorff), Edward Carnby is about to learn that just because you don’t believe in something, that doesn’t mean it can’t kill you.

New Meshuggah Album Release Date Tentatively Set

Nuclear Blast Records has set an April 11, 2005 tentative European release date for the new Meshuggah studio album, "Catch 33".

In a recent interview with the Chronicles of Chaos extreme music webzine, Meshuggah drummer Tomas Haake said of the upcoming CD, "It's not a proper full-length if you will, more like an experimental full-length. Like [the recently issued EP] 'I', it will be one single song, but at full-length. It's going to be much more guitar riff based than anything we have ever done as well, so there won't be as much of the drumming that kind of throws you off — just more straightforward, but at the same time totally insane riffing. . . It's definitely experimental and we're not telling people that this is the next official full-length. If you're looking for another 'Chaosphere' or another 'Nothing' that contains a bunch of different songs, then this is probably not the album that you want to buy, but if you're interested in anything that we're doing then it's something you should check out. Like I said, I'm sure that Meshuggah fans will love it. It's definitely a step to the side of what we're doing right now."
