MESHUGGAH's "Demiurge" video can be seen below.
Combining extreme camera angles with adrenaline-inducing performance footage from the band's sold-out show at Terminal 5 in New York City this past May, "Demiurge" was filmed and directed by Anthony Dubois. The song comes off MESHUGGAH's latest album, "Koloss", which has sold more than 40,000 copies in the United States since its March release.
