Norwegian ‘black jazz’ band may have played a concert on top of one of Trolltunga, one of Norway’s most spectacular tourist sites, but they’ve got nothing on British industrial metal band The Defiled.
The four-piece played a 2014 concert on an iceberg in Greenland. The 30-minute gig was turned in to the short documentary that can be seen below (the iceberg performance starts around the 18:00 mark):
According to music site Metal Hammer, the performance will now be immortalized in the 2016 Guinness Book of World Records as the first ever concert on an iceberg.
“Breaking records certainly makes an interesting change from making them,” the band’s keyboardist, who goes by the name The AvD, told the site.
Greenland is an autonomous and largely self-governing member of the Kingdom of Denmark. With a population of just 57,000 and a land area of 2.2 million square kilometres, it is both the largest and most sparsely-populated island in the world.
The island’s ice sheet is melting rapidly, so there may not be too many more opportunities for iceberg concerts.
