Swedish metallers Meshuggah have announced their ninth studio album, Immutable. Arriving April 1 via Atomic Fire Records, the LP will be the band's first full-length since 2016's The Violent Sleep of Reason.

Posting to social media on Friday (January 14), the band shared a teaser of what we believe will be the album's lead single. In typical Meshuggah form, the 30-second snippet sees an array of chug-worthy goodness from guitarists Fredrik Thordendal and Mårten Hagström, and is no doubt a mere drop in an ocean of tech-y extreme metal to come. Check it out below.
