A residency at the Fremantle Arts Centre sparked intensive research into its dark past as a 19th Century lunatic asylum.
The building’s reputation as the most haunted building in the Southern Hemisphere lead to research with the local library, museum, historians, a renowned medium and a team of paranormal investigators.
The research was presented to blackened symphonic metal band Advent Sorrow. Over three months our collaboration spawned two tracks: an untitled dark ambient track featuring onsite recordings channelled directly from within the institution’s walls and Like a Moth to the Flame, a tale of loss and grief that draws inspiration from a historical account.
A limited edition 10” vinyl was produced. The tracks are played on local and international radio and disseminated to the international black metal community through Advent Sorrow’s fan base. Like a Month the Flame features on their tour playlist and is met with critical acclaim amongst metal enthusiasts worldwide.
