[NEWS] Meshuggah – Born in Dissonance (與聖經啟示錄的關係!)

收到 Meshuggah 的新作真的非常雀躍!樂團剛發布了依舊殘暴和精彩的新歌 Born in Dissonance,作為即將推出的新專輯 The Violent Sleep of Reason 作預吿。樂隊解釋說:「歌曲與聖經啟示錄有關,那個上帝歸來把一切帶回起點、把正義的帶到天堂的想法。這曲意念就像是追著我們的怪物,或者是朝向地球飛馳而來的小行星。對我來說,『末日』是個古怪的難題,因為虔誠的人都會感到害怕,反而其他人會對此表示歡迎。」

Meshuggah released a brutal, mind blown new song “Born in Dissonance,” taken from their upcoming The Violent Sleep of Reason. The band explained, “It ties in with the Biblical Apocalypse, the idea of a deity coming back to undo it all and taking to heaven the ones who are righteous. It’s about a monster that’s coming for us, or maybe an asteroid hurtling towards the earth. It’s always been a weird conundrum for me how some people, even devout people, fear the Apocalypse whilst others welcome it. I’ve never understood that.”
