MESHUGGAH’s Tomas Haake Performs “Clockworks” Like He Was in the Upside-Down

I think my favorite song on the new Meshuggah album (read my write-up on MetalSucks here) is “Clockworks” – mainly because, for all its insanity, its the most song-y of the record. The progression through each groove feels the most natural, leading up to the climax midway through.

As always, it’s a pleasure to watch Tomas work, so check out his in-studio playthrough of the joint, which looks a whole lot like it was shot in the Upside-Down:
