A brilliantly heavy new track from Swedish metal titans Meshuggah has been leaked online - or did it?
The song appeared at the page iamaleak.com, as if to suggest the song were leaked without permission.
However, Got-Djent believes the domain was registered by the band manager, which suggests the "leak" was just a marketing stunt. Records for the domain do not currently display any owner information.
Got-Djent also believe the track will be named "Break These Bones Whose Sinews Gave It Motion". It will feature as track 7 on the forthcoming album "Koloss".
A cryptic passage of text was included with the supposed leak:
"the ophidian whispered those who seek shall be rewarded...
a sonic declaration of spIte And resentMent
its resonAnce grinding to dust our souls
the twine of revenge tightLy strung
its subharmonics thE undoing of All
and for those who asK for my name? / dotcom"
Keen-eyed readers will notice the capital letters which spell the name of the domain, iamaleak.com.
Meshuggah will tour the US and Canada with Baroness and Decapitated from March. Meanwhile, listen to the new track right here. What do you think?
