Monochromatic black metal ensemble BELZEBUBS release their long-awaited 360° Hexperience to all their Indiegogo contributors on February 15th, 2024.

Featuring three songs and spanning just under 17 minutes in length, the 360° Hexperience is a “live gig” set in virtual reality, with the viewer dropped front row and center into the audience along other animated crowd members — some of the Indiegogo backers. Other fans appear on the massive LED screen behind the band, and others have lent their voices to the audio track.

The milieu, staging, lights and visuals have all been designed in breathtaking detail by BELZEBUBS author/artist JP Ahonen and 3D animator Oscar Díaz Castillo, guaranteeing it’ll take several encores to find all the hidden gems and Easter eggs of the show. The 360° Hexperience can be viewed with a computer, tablet, smartphone, and many VR goggles, providing the most immersive experience with stereoscopics and ambisonic audio.

The 360° Hexperience is a unique tour de force, further cementing BELZEBUBS’ reputation as a groundbreaking group, helmed by Ahonen’s humorously satanic artistic vision. The band is currently wrapping up the follow-up to their 2019 Century Media debut album Pantheon of the Nightside Gods, which garnered wide critical acclaim across the globe. The second comic book, BELZEBUBS — No Rest for the Wicked, will be published by Top Shelf Productions in July 2024, followed by other translated editions. Ahonen is also working on adapting BELZEBUBS into an animated series with Finland’s national broadcaster YLE and Turku-based animation studio Pyjama Films.
