Oh, boy he went and did it. If you missed our story the other day, we reported that Deftones frontman Chino Moreno was to become one of few musicians to perform inside of a fucking volcano, because why the hell not.
The intimate and exclusive performance saw less than two dozen fans accompany Chino into the dormant volcano, located in Thrihnukagigur, Iceland, for part of the Secret Solstice Festival held in Reykjavík.
According to festival organisers, Thrihnukagigur hadn’t erupted in over 4,000 years and was completely safe, so the only fire to erupt from the dormant beast was that of Chino’s straight fire mixtape.
Getting to the treacherous location was either a two hour hike across lava fields and then a long descent into the volcano itself, or a direct flight via helicopter. Obviously the hike was the cheaper option, but if you’re spending AUD$2700 on tickets then you may as well go the full mile and arrive in style.
According to reports from the BBC, Moreno played Change In The House Of Flies, a cover of a Morrissey track (ugh) and a song off the iconic David Bowie album Blackstar.
