Swedish metal band formed in the late 80's. Meshuggah have refined their sound through the nineties, mixing in your face instrumentation and recording techniques (like Pantera or Fear Factory) with complex but repetitive polyrhythmics. On top of the machine-like and often static yet groovy foundation, one can hear the occasional ambient clean guitar texture or legato lead. The band has released 3 long play albums and few EP's.

Meshuggah also pioneered the use of the seven string guitar, recogninzing its potential for brutal and heavy riffs very early on.
