This is a recording from our live VERMAPYRE performance in Oslo, Norway.
For this performance, we played cigar box guitars that were built by the great and talented Scottish luthier / artisté, Mr. Ben Moor from http://www.randyroosterscigarboxguitars.com
We made this film specifically to be screened for this performance.
The film was projected onto a screen behind the stage. We played along to the film as a live soundtrack. The cigar box guitars were played with custom made FX pedals to sound like black metal punk guitars. The CBGs were also played with violin bows (which added a creepy horror film soundtrack quality). In addition: a home made waterphone instrument was played during this performance (and less exciting, a traditional drum kit was used).
Recently this recording has been released on 12" vinyl from an American record label by the name of, Magic Bullet Records.
I realize that this is not the traditional nor expected use of CBGuitars, but I thought that some members of the Cigar Box Nation might enjoy seeing these wonderful instruments used within a different musical context.
