Heard of British death metal band Unfathomable Ruination yet? While the answer was probably “no” a few days ago, by now you probably have. Earlier today, the band played the first of three exclusive sets inside of an airtight, soundproof, iron cube scheduled to go until they run out of air this week in London, England. The band’s sets are happening inside of Portuguese artist’s João Onofre’s sculpture titled Box Sized Die, part of a new exhibition in the city.
The band had this to say on their Facebook page about the event:
Well since this is going pretty viral already, we shall see you this Wednesday at 8:45am then Thursday and Friday at 6pm.
PS- According to the medical professionals who read the Independent, we’re all going to die… Challenge Accepted.
“In each location the sculpture travels to, Onofre invites a local death metal band to play, on this occasion Unfathomable Ruination,” says the City of London’s official website. “The box is soundproofed, determining and restricting the performance’s duration to the length of time in which the oxygen is expended. Outside the cube, viewers observe its strange vibrations, only viewing the band’s entrance and exit to the performance space.”
So can you see the band? Nope. You’re pretty much stuck feeling their vibrations and assuming they sound better when you can actually hear them – that is, until they stop. Yesterday the band also premiered the video for their new song Parthenogenocide from their brand new two track vinyl release Idiosyncratic Chaos via Sevared Records.
