A new Meshuggah song titled "Born In Dissonance" has come online today, taken off the band's eighth album "The Violent Sleep Of Reason," which is due out October 7th via Nuclear Blast.

Tomas Haake comments: "Basically, the whole idea of why we chose the title is it kinda connects with the lyrical content of the album. Which is to a fair degree about current events and what you see is going on as far as terrorism today, extremist views on ideals, and religious dogma and the violent implications that you get from being asleep so to speak and not acting/reacting to what is going on in the proper way"

The album was produced by Meshuggah and was engineered by Tue Madsen of Puk Studios in Kaerby, Denmark. For the cover, the band once again enlisted Keerych Luminokaya, who created the artwork for "Koloss" and "The Ophidian Trek" as well as the new images for each of the 7 albums and 3 EP's featured in the 25 Years of Musical Deviance box set.

The album's track listing consists of:

1. Clockworks
2. Born in Dissonance
3. MonstroCity
4. By the Ton
5. Violent Sleep of Reason
6. Ivory Tower
7. Stifled
8. Nostrum
9. Our Rage Won’t Die
10. Into Decay

I read that they used real amps for the first time in years on this. Could be confirmation bias, but I thought the guitar tone sounded noticeably warmer than their recent releases.
