Meshuggah is a Swedish extreme metal band founded in 1987 in Ume, Sweden. Members of the band include lead singer Jens Kidman, guitarists Fredrik Thordendal and Mrten Hagström, drummer Tomas Haake, and bassist Dick Lövgren. They are known for their complex, polymetered song structures and polyrhythms. By becoming successful in underground extreme metal music, they have earned themselves the title of being one of the most influential metal bands.
Their name, Meshuggah, originates from the Yiddish word for “crazy,” which stays true to the fact that the band produces insane music.

A complete list of their full albums are Contradictions Collapse (1991), Destroy Erase Improve (1995), Chaosphere (1998), Nothing (2002), Catch Thirtythree (2005), obZen (2008), Koloss (2012), The Violent Sleep of Reason (2016), and Immutable (2022).
