Swedish extreme metal band Meshuggah just played their last show of a very short run in Los Angeles at the historic Wiltern Theatre on January 29th, leading up to the 70,000 Ton of Metal cruise which is currently underway, in support of their most recent album, The Violent Sleep of Reason.

With NAMM having just wrapped up, it was a packed house full of musicians coming to watch this very technical band. As always, Meshuggah put on one hell of a show. The stage production–the lighting and sound–was on point. Every single person in the room seemed to be immensely enjoying themselves, as they should. I’d imagine there were some very sore necks the following morning from all the headbanging that went on.
