British Death Metal Band Unfathomable Ruination to Play Inside an Airtight Iron Box Until the Oxygen Runs Out

Death Metal Box

For his traveling art installation “Box Sized DIE” Portuguese artist João Onofre has employed British death metal band Unfathomable Ruination to play inside an airtight iron box until they run out of air. The exhibit runs July 3rd to August 1st outside of the 30 St Mary Axe “Gherkin” skyscraper in London, where passersby won’t be able to hear so much as feel the music of the metal band playing inside the box.

Outside the cube, viewers observe its strange vibrations, only viewing the band’s entrance and exit to the performance space.
