This Time Lapse Video of Meshuggah’s Crew Setting Up for a Show is Awesome


Meshuggah played NYC a week-and-a-half ago, but all my stage geek friends are still marveling over the band’s production. But you don’t need to be a lighting dork to appreciate the below time lapse video, which shows the band’s road crew loading in, setting up, tearing down, and loading out, all in two-and-a-half minutes. I feel like this falls under the category of “Things Most Metal Fans Don’t Even Think About,” so it’s definitely worth watching. And if for some reason you don’t find it entertaining on its own, just sync it up with the Benny Hill music. Suddenly it’s a whole new ballgame!

There are still five dates left on The Shug’s current tour with Animals as Leaders and Intronaut! Here are the remaining dates:

02/26/13 Union Hall – Edmonton, AB – CANADA
02/27/13 MacEwan Hall Ballroom – Calgary, AB – CANADA
