Alive is a concert film by Swedish extreme metal band Meshuggah. The film was released as a double album (DVD with CD in digipak) through Nuclear Blast on February 5, 2010, in Europe and February 9, 2010, in North America.[4]

Half of the film consists of the band performing songs on their obZen Tour during 2008–2009. This is intertwined with documentary-style clips of the members talking about their experiences in the band. Also on the DVD is "The Making of Bleed", a documentary on how the music video for "Bleed" was shot, along with the music video itself; and a "Drum Tour" and "Guitar Tour".[5]

The cover is made to imitate the film poster for Alien.
