MeSugar – Meshuggah Covered With Sugary Snacks As Rhythm Section

Now here’s some creativity in action. In the name of science, Pete Cottrell went the distance on this wacky experiment, using a variety of chiefly British candy and sodas I’ve never heard of to create a bunch of percussion samples to cover Meshuggah’s “Straws Pulled at Random”.


The results are pretty sweet.

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
