‘I’m an artist, man, genres mean nothing to me. You can’t put me in a box.’ That’s the musician’s mantra. Unless those musicians are London death metal band Unfathomable Ruination. They’re climbing into a tiny airtight cube outside the Gherkin at 6pm every Wednesday to Friday until August 1 and playing songs such as ‘Futile Colossus Decapitated’ until the oxygen runs out. It’s all in the name of art, as part of Portuguese artist João Onofre’s work ‘Box Sized Die’. If it goes wrong, they’ll be the world’s first literal death metal band. Better get a cover of ‘Take My Breath Away’ ready.
Go check them out tonight or here’s some other cheap gigs where you can actually watch the band!
