Sure, owning their Alive DVD educates you in what a “Day in the Life of MESHUGGAH” looks & feels like, but what if you’re a card-carrying member of Bathroom Readers Not-So-Anonymous?

There’s good news for all the print lovers out there: Guitar World Senior Editor Brad Angle assigned himself the task of documenting the mysterious lives of the technically intoxicating Swedish metal band MESHUGGAH. You’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at load-in, soundcheck, doors, and showtime on the day of MESHUGGAH’s sold-out Hollywood show back in May and delve into the minds of guitarists Fredrik Thordendal and Mårten Hagström. It’s all there - plus a transcription of 1995‘s “Future Breed Machine.”

A bit of MESHUGGAH trivia: Did you know guitarist Thordendal is also a drummer? Read about light shows & scrims, complicated “simple” songs, the new Ibanez production-model M8M guitars, speculations on the cause of the Buddha’s ecstatic expression, and Cubase in Guitar World’s nine-page feature. The September issue drops at newsstands on July 24th, but can be purchased now at the magazine’s online store: http://store.guitarworld.com/collections/guitar-world/products/guitar-world-sept-12-steve-vai-tosin-abasi

Released in late March, KOLOSS has sold over 37,000 copies in the U.S. according to Nielsen SoundScan. KOLOSS debuted on the American Billboard Top 200 Albums chart at #17 and at #2 on the Billboard Independent Albums chart with the band’s highest first week sales of their North American career. KOLOSS debuted at #24 on the Canadian Top 200 chart, at #48 on the German Media Control chart, and entered the World Sales chart at #31.

“Break These Bones Whose Sinews Gave It Motion” is MESHUGGAH’s latest video.
