Death Metal Band Locks Themselves in Tiny Box In The Name Of Art

If you happen to be in London any time in July or early August, why not swing by the Gherkin building? You can enjoy the sights, maybe grab a bite to eat… or watchUnfathomable Ruination literally suffocate themselves for the entirety of the aforementioned time period. The band will "enter a two-meter square, hermetically-sealed steel cube and play a self-described 'intense and brutal' set until their oxygen runs out," according to Culture24. The performance art is all part of an exhibit called Box Sized Die done by Portugese artist João Onofre, where visitors are invited feel the vibrations of the performance from the outside of the box. The City of London's website explains the performance thusly. "Influenced by Tony Smith’s pioneering minimalist sculpture Die (1962), the steel box serves as a mobile location for performance. In each location the sculpture travels to, Onofre invites a local Death Metal band to play, on this occasion Unfathomable Ruination. 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, is this art or just a good way to kill all your brain cells due to suffocating? In case you're wondering what their music sounds like:

Interview: Nader Sadek / Rune “Blapshemer” Eriksen

You are well known for being the live show partner of Mayhem over the past years. So tell us more on how you alongside with Rune "Blapshemer" Eriksen, Flo Mournier (Cryptopsy), Steve Tucker (ex-Morbid Angel) and Novy (ex-Vader) met and decided to form a band under your name: Nader Sadek That's the problem and the biggest misconception of this porject, this wasnever a band. Unfortunatley it had to be marketed as such. However, there is no band by the name Nader Sadek. Nader Sadek is just me, the project starter, if you will, among many other things of course, the whole project was my vision. I had picked each musician for a very specific reason. At first all the musicians were skeptical as they were at the time not fans of each others bands.
