No air guitar

Metal Box may be the title of a Public Image Ltd album, but it would also be apt as the name for this art installation, in which death metal band Unfathomable Ruination (former tour-mates of David Brent's Foregone Conclusion, perhaps?) will perform in a soundproofed box, "determining and restricting the performance’s duration to the length of time in which the oxygen is expended".

Surely the artist behind the piece, Joao Onofre, has missed a trick by not choosing this bunch of bruisers instead?
