The band was accepted based solely on their early material, which is considered technical groove/thrash metal.

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.
