Meshuggah and Cynic team up for 2009 tour


Progressive death metal masters Meshuggah, Cynic, and The Faceless have announced that they’ll be collaborating on what is sure to be the best metal tour of early 2009!

Seriously, WHOA! That is one of the most impressive metal touring packages I’ve seen in a hell of a long time, and anyone who’s familiar with these bands know that we’ll be able to expect and amazing show. To begin with, all three bands have just released some of the best albums of their career. Not only is this is Meshuggah’s first U.S. tour in support of frighteningly chaotic obZen,  but Cynic will be supporting their career-reigniting mindtrip Trace in Air and the Faceless will be starting the show off with songs from their incredible new tech death release Planetary Duality. To say that the crowd will be excited will be an huge understatement. Meshuggah have some of the most passionate fans in all of metal, and it’s been a long time since they set out on a real headlining tour in America. Even, Cynic is a landmark in the genre that will have many longtime metal fans giddy. Thank Lucifer a metro Minnesota date is on the itinerary! We’re going to tear Station 4 apart!
