With Metallica having already laid claim to Antarctica, The Defiled recently teamed up with Jägermeister to perform on a floating iceberg in the Greenland Sea. The band played for a crowd of locals from Kulusuk, Greenland with a documentary on the unique performance available below.
Various local residents were used to help facilitate the show with the audience seated in various boats. Band vocalist/guitarist Stitch D commented of the experience:
“This has to be one of the most insane gigs we’ve ever played! You see these things on TV documentaries but it’s not until you get to see them in real life that you realise just how big and amazing icebergs are. Although it was cold, I don’t think any of us noticed once we got started, as the stage location literally takes your breath away. As a group of mates, we’ve shared some amazing experiences together but this has been an adventure that has bought us closer together and something that we all feel really privileged to have been part of. We’ve made a lot of friends during our short stay here and donated some music equipment to the local people, so we look forward to coming back one day and playing a joint gig out here next time – maybe the first-ever gig with two bands playing on two icebergs at the same time!”
