Multi-instrumentalist Sam Mooradian has collided with drummer Owen McKinley to record a complete cover video for the expansive, nearly 22 minute, legend of a Meshuggah track “I”. They really went to great lengths to pull this off properly and the results show in the final product!
We’ve included both the cover video and the original track below for all your cross comparison needs. Now secure your belongings, strap yourself into your seat, and press that “play” button!
