MESHUGGAH (SWEDEN)


An experimental Thrash band boasting guitarists that both employ seven and eight string guitars named after the Yiddish term for 'Crazy', MESHUGGAH formed in Umeň during 1987 as a trio of guitarist Fredrik Thordendal, ex-bassist for MEMORANDUM, bassist Peter Nordin and vocalist / guitarist Jens Kidman. At first branded METALLIEN, this title soon gave way to MESHUGGAH. The band's first commercial offering came with an independent EP 'Psykisk Testbild', released through local record store Garageland in 1989. Only 1000 copies were pressed and this would serve as the only MESHUGGAH release to feature Niklas Lundgren on drums, before he was supplanted by Thomas Haake the following year. MESHUGGAH briefly employed the services of HOLLOW guitar player Marcus Bigren in 1990. Also distributed that year would be a six song demo cassette, 'Ejaculation Of Salvation'. It would not be until 1991 that the band got back into the studio, delivering a two track demo comprising 'Qualms Of Reality' and 'All This Because Of Greed'. German label Nuclear Blast took the band on to issue the debut album 'Contradictions Collapse' in 1991. An out and out Thrashfest from start to finish, 'Contradictions Collapse''s hi-tech metal drew exemplary reviews.
