MESHUGGAH Flashed Their Cojones Last Night By Performing Without Their Singer Jens Kidman - Video Available!

This past Monday, February 11, Sweden's MESHUGGAH ignited the second leg of the "Ophidian Trek" at the Beacham Theatre in Orlando, Florida. 

As previously reported, last night the band were forced to perform without their vocalist Jens Kidman at Center Stage in Atlanta, Georgia. "Jens is down with the flu. And this flu means business. He has been forbidden to even speak. He's mute for now. WE WILL PLAY ANYWAY", commented the band before the show. "So memorize the lyrics and bring your very best growl Atlanta. You will all be Jens tonight!! Lets make this happen! We hope he's back tomorrow, or it'll be vocal-duties Charlotte!"

After the show, they commented: "Atlanta!! You have our deepest gratitude. You helped us turn a really shitty situation into an unbelievable night for us. YOU are Meshuggah. Much love!!" There is no word yet whither or not Jens will be back with the band tonight in Charlotte.

 We got to hand it to MESHUGGAH for having the cojones of stepping out of their comfort zone and performing without their singer for the first time ever. And from what we heard, the crowd were very pleased on having the unique opportunity of seeing an instrumental set by one of the most ferocious bands in Heavy Music history. Here is some video footage of the bands performance last night:
