Meshuggah + High on Fire

Neck-snapping Swedish extreme-metal juggernaut Meshuggah, which recently celebrated 25 years of "musical deviance," plays in support of its eighth full-length, The Violent Sleep of Reason. Unlike previous super-polished, post-processed albums, this release was recorded live, so expect the new songs' full-throttle energy to translate well to the stage. Support comes from one of the most acclaimed metal bands of the past decade-plus, High on Fire. There’s nothing particularly surprising about the trio’s meat-and-potatoes doom-thrash, but nevertheless, it remains a headbanger’s dream.
