Mona’s winter festival, Dark Mofo, has announced the first artist for its June 2018 festival – the exclusive Australian performance of ‘legendary Acid Kings’, ELECTRIC WIZARD (UK), at the Odeon Theatre in Hobart, Tasmania, on Thursday 21 June.
England’s Electric Wizard are the heavy metal innovators of downturned, grinding, monolithic esoteric doom, consistently redefining the preconceived thresholds of detuned guitar chords for the past quarter of a century.
If sacrilege, occult themes, low-end riffs, H.P. Lovecraft, B-grade horror movies, drug-crazed heavy rock, and performing Satanic rituals on a triple dose of LSD are your thing, Electric Wizard is the band for you, sicko. And this June, Hobart’s Dark Mofo is the place to be.
Haven’t heard of Dark Mofo? Well for one, where have you been!? Dark Mofo is a project of Mona, a winter solstice festival based in Tasmania, the southernmost state of Australia.
Dark Mofo delves into centuries-old rituals to explore the links between ancient and contemporary mythology, humans and nature, religious and secular traditions, darkness and light, and birth, death and renewal.
