Next life - Guru Meditation (single) out now!

Title track of Next Life's upcoming album, out august 21st.

Next Life from Borgheim, Norway started out in 1999 and was the first band in the world to combine 8-bit computer synthesizers (so-called chiptunes) in metal. The result is a stunning fusion of chaotic DIY punk with strict form, gaming culture with the art world. By taking cues from innovative hardcore bands like The Locust and Converge and combining it with the megalomania of metal bands like Zeni Geva, Mayhem and Meshuggah, founding member Hai Nguyen Dinh made Next Life the truly singular voice it is in today's music scene.

"Guru meditation" is the opening track and title track on Next Life's fourth album. The title is taken from the Amiga "bluescreen of death". The album is scheduled for release on Fysisk Format August 21st and is the third album to feature drummer Anders Hangård (Nidingr, Noplacetohide).
