Famed artist and visual effects director and driving force behind the all-star death metal project that bears his name, Nader Sadek is being featured as part of a group exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia. The exhibit, which runs from February 6 until July 28, will feature masks worn by Attila Cshiar during his performances with SUNN O))) and MAYHEM. The masks were designed and fabricated by Sadek in his New York City studio in 2007. MAYHEM then commissioned Sadek to make their stage set for their U.S. shows in 2009, for which he sculpted a flesh and bone style version of the band’s original logo. The work is being exhibited among other works, including works by Genesis P-orridge of Throbbing Gristle.

“Living Flesh”, the first-ever live performance from NADER SADEK‘s critically acclaimed “In The Flesh” project, will be released independently on February 27. Capturing the inimitable stage presence of a unique collaboration of death metal and black metal giants, “Living Flesh” offers the heavy, haunting soundtrack of a society ever more soaked in the reanimated, decomposed bio-matter we know as petroleum. The November 20, 2011 show featured the original lineup of musicians from the “In The Flesh” record, as well as two new performers. The original lineup consisted of Flo Mounier (CRYPTOPSY); Rune Eriksen (AURA NOIR, AVA INFERI, ex-MAYHEM); Novy (ex-BEHEMOTH and ex-VADER); and Steve Tucker (ex-MORBID ANGEL) in his first and last live appearance for this project.
