* NOTE: EVENT STARTS AT 3PM SHARP, 1 HOUR EARLIER THAN USUAL*
This month MUSIKUNST presents METALKUNST, a special event incorporating extreme metal with improvised and experimental music.
Curated by Daniel Tucceri, this event will feature members of the Melbourne metal and experimental scenes combining their distinct and unique approaches to take themselves and the audience into unfamiliar territory.
For anyone even remotely interested in either style, this is not an event to be missed and is a must for those who wander on the sparsely populated periphery where extremes meet.
DAV BYRNE: sub-dirges
ROB HANSEN: hell-vocations
DANIEL ‘FANZA’ O’GRADY: 666strings
MATT ‘SKITZ’ SANDERS: mezzerschmitts
DANIEL TUCCERI: pianicide
Featuring members of Terrorust and the Rev Kriss Hades, METALKUNST hosts the debut gig for PLASMODIUM VIVAX, a realm first invoked upon the full moon of November 2013. Entirely improvised ritual based extreme metal, think Gnaw Their Tongues and Blut Aus Nord with keyboards straight out of 70s-80s era horror films. Not to be missed.
MELBOURNE DRONE ORCHESTRA
Six guitarists. Six strings. Six half stacks. 6.6.6. Possibly 666 decibels. Playing a set entirely consisting of guitar drones and feedback, prepare to have your innards liquefied by the sheer voluminal pressure conjured by these six merchants of noise. Featuring members of Agonhymn and Grey Daturas, this promises to be a performance either that will either invoke ear plugs or ear bleeds.
A DEMON SHEEN (MAT BLACKWELL)
with special guests
SHANE VAN DEN AKKER
The demonic solo project for demented genius MAT BLACKWELL will materialise in the form of a three headed entity channelling the corrupted soul of DONKEY MUTHERS OF ARSE madman SHANE VAN DEN AKKER and the divebombingly shredgasmic death riffery of CHRIS NYLSTOCH. If you ever wondered what it would be like to throw Autechre, the Locust and Burzum in a blender, this is the smoothie the government doesn’t want sold to children.
3-6pm SHARP - $5 conc / $10 full
