Fredrik Thordendal (born February 11, 1970) is the lead guitarist and a founding member of the Swedish experimental metal band Meshuggah. He along with Mårten Hagström, were rated #35 by Guitar World as the top 100 greatest heavy metal guitarist of all-time. Under the name Fredrik Thordendal's Special Defects, Thordendal released a solo album in 1997 titled Sol Niger Within with Ultimate Audio Entertainment. The album was remixed and re-released by Ultimate Audio Entertainment and Relapse Records in 1999 under the title Sol Niger Within version 3.33. The re-release contains two bonus tracks but omits several parts of the original version. Thordendal also featured on several tracks for drummer Morgan Ågren's Mats/Morgan Band. As a guitarist, Thordendal draws attention with his clean, complex lead-playing and complex rhythm-playing, augmented by his use of low-tuned eight-string guitars.

He also contributes to the songwriting for Meshuggah, as well as providing backing vocals in live performances. He also writes the basslines and performs electric bass in the studio whilst Dick Lövgren covers them live. Thordendal is also a producer of some note, having produced all of Meshuggah's recent material and also releases for various other bands, Switzerland's Fragment among them. Thordendal has featured in numerous side-projects, such as XXX Atomic Toejam with Petter Marklund. The project had released a 7" two-track single "Celebration" under the name Sepülchre Inc., then took the moniker XXX Atomic Toejam and issued an MCD entitled "A Gathering Of The Tribes For The First / Last Human Be-In" on Cold Meat Industry and also featured a track on the "Karmanik Collection" compilation. A full-length album was long announced, but never surfaced.

Thordendal also played bass for Petter Marklund's solo project Memorandum and together with Marklund remixed tracks on the 1995 compilation album "Ars Moriendi". Thordendal features in the Darkane track "Psychic Pain" from the album Insanity, performing lead guitar. Thordendal also contributed to the song "Asphyxiate" which can be found on Scarve's album Irradiant. Read more on Last.fm.
