Active
Formed in:
1987

Years active:

The band was accepted based solely on their early material because of their original thrash metal style.

Meshuggah's name is taken from the Hebrew and Yiddish word for "crazy".

Metallien is NOT a pre-Meshuggah band. It was a different entity altogether: Thordendal's previous project (with no other Meshuggah-members involved) before the start of Calipash/Meshuggah.
