As for the new, yet unnamed album. Tomas said: “Of course, we have a certain framework that we still wanna sound like Meshuggah, we wanna have that signature sound, we want people to be able to, even if they haven't heard the song before, in the best-case scenario, it's, like, 'Oh, that's gotta be Meshuggah,” “But with that said, as far as the music goes, we try to do kind of the opposite of what AC/DC has been doing for 40 years.” He continued, “we're not trying to write the same album over and over, we try our best to kind of find new grips within the framework of what we're supposed to be, but we're not looking to be another band all of a sudden or something that we haven't been or that is not true to kind of what we're doing.”
