MESHUGGAH was formed in 1987 in Umeå, Sweden. At this time the line-up was Fredrik Thordendal – Guitars, Jens Kidman – Vocals, Johan Sjögren - Guitars, Per Sjögren - Drums and Jörgen Lindmark - Bass. Jens Kidman soon left the band and started the band CALIPASH with bassist Peter Nordin, drummer Niclas Lundgren and guitarist Torbjörn Granström.Johan Sjögren left Meshuggah in -88 and guitarist Jonas Lindberg took his place in the band.

Fredrik Thordendal found Calipash’s music more in line with what he wanted to do and so left the band (leading to the dissolution of the band, as this line-up). Fredrik kind of “took” the MESHUGGAH band name with him as he joined forces with CALIPASH and they went under the MESHUGGAH name from then on. During the early stages of the now “reformed” Meshuggah - Torbjörn Granström left the band.
