Massive Meshuggah vinyl boxset announced Nuclear Blast pulled out all the stops on this behemoth vinyl retrospective.

Meshuggah Box Set
The mother of all headaches, Meshuggah’s new vinyl boxset.

Nuclear Blast has revealed a monster to celebrate 25 years of Meshuggah:

Limited to 1,000 units worldwide! 7 albums + 3 EPs on 17 ultra clear, 180 gram vinyl with brand new artwork. Includes a 100-page hardcover book with previously unreleased photos, exclusive slipmat and blu-ray disc of music videos and never-before-seen “making of” footage… all in an embossed box with 3D cover art!

Here comes the vinyl:

  • Meshuggah EP – single, 45rpm vinyl
  • Contradictions Collapse – double, 33 1/3rpm vinyl
  • None EP – single, 33 1/3rpm vinyl
  • Destroy Erase Improve – double vinyl, 45rpm vinyl
  • Chaosphere – double vinyl, 45rpm vinyl
  • Nothing – double vinyl, 45rpm vinyl
  • I EP – single vinyl, 33 1/3rpm vinyl
  • Catch 33 – double vinyl, 33 1/3rpm vinyl
  • Obzen – double vinyl, 45rpm vinyl
  • Koloss – double vinyl, 45rpm vinyl

Curious why some of the LPs are 33rpm and some are 45. No mention of “half-speed mastering” or the like. But still, 17 records, plus a book, a Blu-ray full of video, all new art for all the albums, and a slipmat for $250. That’s actually quite a sweet price considering how much work must have gone into it. Read more…
