Dick Lövgren is a bassist as at home playing jazz as metal. While he’s a trained jazz bassist, since 2004 he’s been more well-known for his work with Swedish experimental metal band Meshuggah.
His Meshuggah sound, created by playing with a pick exclusively, is evident on the band’s second live recording, CD/DVD set The Ophidian Trek, which documents a May 2013 London show on the tour of the same name.
Here’s a little taste of what Meshuggah and Lövgren have to offer this time out:
The Ophidian Trek Track List:
- Rational Gaze

- The Hurt That Finds You First
- I Am Colossus
- New Millennium Cyanide Christ
- Dancers to a Discordant System
