Enhanced multimedia section includes lyrics, credits, gear setup info, links & more.

The song titles appear only on the disc of the original pressing, and the lyrics only in the enhanced features section.

After the release of "Chaosphere", Meshuggah developed an 8-string guitar with the Sweden-based Nevborn company, which includes two bass guitar strings and a longer neck. "Nothing" was recorded in its entirety with its prototype, although it was written on 7-string Ibanez guitars tuned down to match the 8-string.

Recording information:

Recorded at Studio Dug-Out, Area 51 & Fear and Loathing in La SpÄnga.
