Original name of Swedish metal band Meshuggah.

Metallien were formed in 1985; the founding line up consisted of frontman Roger Olofsson, guitarists Peder Gustafsson and Fredrik Tordendahl, bassist Janne Wiklund and drummer Örjan Lundmark.

After a few demos made the rounds, Metallien broke up and Fredrik Thordendal continued the band with a different lineup and a different name.
