Meshuggah Drummer Tomas Haake Shares Playthrough Of New Song “Nostrum”


Meshuggah drummer Tomas Haake plays through the band’s new track “Nostrum” in the below video. Haake commented of the performance:

“This clip is from Puk Studio in Denmark during the recording for ‘The Violent Sleep Of Reason‘. As we did a bunch of takes for each track, not every hit in video will be same as the audio, since I would play it a little different for every take, whereas video was only recorded for a take or two.

This track ‘Nostrum’ is one of my favorite ones on the new album to play. It’s definitely got its fair share of ‘instrumental technicality,’ but more importantly I think it ended up having a cool, crazy, erratic-type vibe to it, as well as a playfulness, making it interesting and enhancing the song to beyond its mere technical aspects. This one also has one of the coolest guitar solos on it, played by Fredrik Thordendal of the band.

For as wild and erratic as it may come across, I hope you guys will dig it for the song it is. Enjoy!”

The Violent Sleep Of Reason” will be released on October 07th.
