Meshuggah’s Fredrik Thordendal working on new solo album

Meshuggah guitarist Fredrik Thordendal has been working on a new solo album as of late under the moniker of “Fredrik Thordendal’s Special Defects“. Soilwork drummer Dirk Verbeuren has been recruited to handle the drumming for the effort and offered the following on the project:

“What a dream come true! Fredrik has been very supportive of my career for many years in many ways, and I respect him immensely both as a musician and songwriter. It was huge for SCARVE to be asked to open for MESHUGGAH and we’ve been in touch ever since. When Fredrik asked me to be a part of the second SPECIAL DEFECTS record, I just couldn’t believe it! Now that I have the SOILWORK album under my belt, it’s exciting to dive into a completely different challenge where my drum parts will be based on improvisation more than anything else.”

For those unfamiliar with his solo work here is a clip from his first album “Sol Niger Within“. Tracks 1-8
