Meshuggah DVD director discusses film

Ian McFarland, producer/director of Meshuggah’s concert film ‘Alive’ has recently spoken about the new release.

Emmy-nominated McFarland, who runs Killswitch Productions, discusses the film in a radio interview with He has previously worked with Meshuggah, directing their video clip for the song ‘Bleed’, with his producing CV also including work with notable bands such as Sick of it All and God Forbid.

Meshuggah guitarist Marten Hagstrom previously commented about the DVD in an interview with Inside Out webzine:
“Being onstage in that chaotic environment, how to directly transfer what that feels like in a live situation over to a DVD is pretty much impossible. For us, it wasn’t only about capturing the most bad-ass live set we could produce, but we wanted to represent what it was like on the road.”

Anyone fortunate enough to catch Meshuggah as part of Soundwave can certainly attest to the aforementioned sentiments.
