MESHUGGAH’S THE VIOLENT SLEEP OF REASON: HIGHEST 1ST WEEK SALES & DEBUTS ON BILLBOARD TOP 200!
The eight studio album from Swedish extreme tech-metal messiah’s MESHUGGAH was released on October 7th. The band not only saw its highest first weeks sales in the US, the album debuted at #17 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, #3 on the Hard Music chart, and #7 on the Billboard Top Current Albums chart. It also occupies the #3 position on the Billboard Hard Music chart and #5 position on the Rock chart.
From Nuclear Blast: “MESHUGGAH legend was established through the likes of 1995’s groundbreaking Destroy Erase Improve and the band’s third record, 1998’s Chaosphere. In 2002, MESHUGGAH issued Nothing, which sold over 110,000 copies in the US and garnered the band an arena tour slot with Tool, high validation from the biggest and most discerning progressive metal band on the planet at the turn of the decade.”
The Violent Sleep of Reason is the band’s eighth full-length studio album.
