Michael Berberian from E-Kunst

Michael Berberian from E-Kunst

Mostly known as the founder of the record label Season of Mist, Michael S. Berberian has been using metal festival for years as an alibi to visit the world and its museums. E-Kunst combines those passions.

Michael Berberian: The poster art format is very much alive and important in the US, especially in rock music. I decided to transpose that idea to extreme metal, where it was absent. Besides that, the extreme metal scene is by now mature enough for concepts like this, both artistically (the current quality of album covers has in my opinion improved a lot since the early 2000s) and as a…

Pallbearer: The artwork of 'Heartless'

Initially formed in 2008, Pallbearer grew from the fertile underground metal scene of Little Rock, Arkansas - releasing their debut full length ‘Sorrow and Extinction’ in early 2012. The record made an immediate and immense impact on die-hard doom fans and metal critics alike, also forming the four piece fans outside of the metal scene. Hailed by Rolling Stone as the #1 metal album of 2012, the album also received the coveted ‘Best New Music’ stamp of approval from Pitchfork and landed the band on end of year lists at SPIN and NPR.‘Heartless’ was recorded entirely to analogue tape at…

The Satanic Temple's Salem Art Gallery, with Blood-Painting Surrealist VINCENT CASTIGLIA, Present 'Sanguine Spring'

Salem Art Gallery - the headquarters and cultural center of The Satanic Temple, Salem, MA (64 Bridge St.) - is pleased to present "Sanguine Spring", a selection of large-scale paintings, limited editions and sculpture by world renowned artist VINCENT CASTIGLIA.

HEXVESSEL release concert short film

HEXVESSEL release concert short film

In early 2016 HEXVESSEL released their 3rd album “When We Are Death”, praised by media worldwide. Prog Magazine UK called it “a vision quest filled with wonder and baleful energy” and Kerrang honored it with a 4K review: “Marrying the retrofied experimentalism of King Crimson to the hazy musicality of Hawkwind…” The band simply calls it psychedelic forest folk. One of the many live gigs in support of the new album was at the Menuo Juodaragis Festival in the national forest of Lithuania. The band brought Finnish filmmaker (and former Sentenced drummer) Vesa Ranta to film this special event for…
