Nuclear Blast Records listening party for MESHUGGAH
Posted on 16 August 2016
This week we were honored that Nuclear Blast Records asked us to host an exclusive listening party for the new album from Sweden’s extreme metal act MESHUGGAH. Drummer Tomas Haake was in attendance along with about 100 other VIPs who were lucky enough to hear Meshuggah’s 8th studio album, The Violent Sleep Of Reason, way before it comes out on October 7th.
Before the listening party, Tomas and I did a cool interview and recorded audio for a Meshuggah album release special that will air on my SiriusXM channel LIQUID METAL around the release date. Then we hit play and our Affliction Studios in Seal Beach was vibrating so hard as we blasted their amazing new album at volume levels that could rupture ear holes.
Besides Tomas, we had members from Cypress Hill, Kyng, Aeges, Valora, Exmortus, hot chicks, and several contest winners who won a spot on our private guest list. Nuclear Blast provided tacos for everyone from our friends from Borracho Tacos. Modelo made sure there was plenty of beers at the event, and Riazul Tequila was the main ingredient in our world famous jalapeño cucumber infused spicy as hell margaritas that we lovingly call “Satan’s Jizz.” And man were those a hit!
Huge thanks to Roland and QSC Audio for providing and amplifying the SOUND that night, and of course thanks to all who came out on a Monday to get an ear load of sick new MESHUGGAH!!!
Next event we have planned at Affliction Studios… TESTAMENT new album release party at end of October, get ready!
