Meshuggah vocalist Jens Kidman was forced to sit out last night’s performance in Atlanta due to coming down with the flu. However, the band did not cancel their performance, instead creating a post on Facebook stating, “[Kidman]‘s mute for now. WE WILL PLAY ANYWAY. So memorize the lyrics and bring your very best growl Atlanta. You will all be Jens tonight!! Lets make this happen!”
During a performance of “Bleed”, a cardboard cutout of Kidman was put on stage and pre-recorded vocals were broadcasted.
However, during their performance of “New Millennium Cyanide Christ”, singer Sacha Dunable of Intronaut (who is touring with the band) came out to sing the vocals. Check it all out below. READ MORE

Intronaut took metal in a new direction with their Century Media debut, Prehistoricisms, but their sophomore offering, Valley of Smoke, will quickly solidify them as genre visionaries. This stellar new album, which Decibel Magazine praises as “One of the most anticipated albums of 2010” is set for a fall release and was once again produced by the acclaimed Josh Newell (Jane’s Addiction).
Sacha Dunable (vocals/guitars) states: “Intronaut is beyond stoked to get back out on the road and play some shows with our buddies in Cynic and Dysrhythmia. If you live near any of these cities, be sure to come out! We’ll be playing a few songs off our new record, and I could only assume that the other two bands are going to blow your socks off.
