Meshuggah is celebrating 15 years of ObZen with a newly-remastered version of the album. The classic 2008 album is remastered and "sonically updated" by Thomas Eberger and Sofia von Hage of Stockholm Mastering for its March 31 release, and you can check out the new version of "Electric Red" below.
Much like how I felt about "ObZen," this new version of "Electric Red" just has a certain heft to it. The bass feels a little more filled out, the production feels a little less edgy, and the whole thing just packs an extra punch. Which is great, because the original ObZen always felt just a little brittle.
ObZen was notable Meshuggah's first album with bassist Dick Lovgren and also saw the return of drummer Tomas Haake, whose drums were programmed on Catch ThirtyThree. Pre-orders for physical copies are available here.
