As some may be aware of, I left to North Korea in 2017, with a handfull of artists, led by Morten Traavik, for a project called "The DMZ Academy"

It happened that a long and spectacular documentary was shot by some competent friends of us. This film, "WAR OF ART" is to be premiered in the coming weeks, before being brodcasted worldwide on your usual TV chanels. You will have the opportunity to see yours truly very drunk most of the time, singing a bold cover of Nirvana's "RAPE ME" in a North Korean karaoke, among other things.

Those are some of the images we designed for the promotion of the movie.

An old one I did years ago for the mighty #Wormlust from Iceland, that I still like, while I got deeply tired, with years, by the majority of Metastazis production.

I'm not usually very keen on sharing personal details on this network. But yesterday, @andyjuliasd shot some portraits of me I really like, so, well, this one of those.

Highly exciting announcement!!
Today marks the day of the official release announcement and launch of "LIBERATION DAYS - Laibach and North Korea", a book edited by Valnoir and Morten Traavik, about the Laibach concert in North Korea.
>>> ORDER VIA THE PROFILE LINK <<< This is the press release statement : "The definitive visual and textual monument to what philosopher Slavoj Žižek calls «the most fascinating cultural and ideological political event till now of the 21st century». In August 2015, infamous avant-rock provocateurs Laibach made global headlines with their concert on the occasion of the equally infamous North Korea celebrating its 70th anniversary of liberation from Japanese colonial rule. 
Their choice of repertoire? Why, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Sound of Music, of course. 
LIBERATION DAYS – Laibach and North Korea chronicles and explains a concert that shook the world and how it came to be. 
Lavishly designed by Valnoir, a key player in this totalkunst performance, and edited by himself with the director and organiser of the performance Morten Traavik, LIBERATION DAYS is the ultimate collection of behind-the-scenes photographs, artwork, propaganda, analysis and other forms of documentation from this world-historic event, including contributions from, among others, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea Committee for Cultural Relations, Slavoj Žižek, John Oliver, Lisa Sang Mi Min, Irena Šentevska and Charles Lewis.
As pleasing to the eye as puzzling to the mind." 190 pages
Hardback, goldfoiled spine
First press limited to 350 copies
Artist edition strictly limited to 30 copies
DPRK and Latvia Photos by :
Mary Sun Kim, Jørund F. Pedersen,

Illustration elements were delivered by @zbigniewmbielak and rearranged by Metastazis, blood offered by Valnoir and @douglaciation , and the print made by @oliviermarescaux

A project very dear to our heart, a few years ago, but never posted here.
Valnoir had this vision of founding a black metal project telling the story of the mystery of the pre-internet black metal era. Glaciation and its EP 1994 were born.
All the patches were stiched directly in the skin of the guitar player. Everything you may hear now about this project still being alive is an illegitimate joke, but we'll get back to this in due time, if needed.

Years ago we designed the artwork and logo of Ascension. This project was a breakthrough on many aspects, so it's a pleasure to share it again now.

Promo picture, designed for the new @laibachofficial album "The Sound of Music" and based upon a Korean painting. Never used so many flowers in an artwork than for this album. Getting older.

Today marks the release or the new Laibach album artwork, that we designed. This is our first Laibach album design. It is based on Korean painting we modified in many ways.
This is what @muterecords published yesterday on their press release:
"The cover was created by Metastazis studio, who has previously collaborated with Laibach and oversaw visuals across the band’s North Korean project. Valnoir explains, “Laibach and NSK have been without any doubt the most influential artists in my career. And since I was in charge of most of the visual elements for Laibach’s North Korean project, it was both logical and easy for me to dive into this fantastic and monumental project!” We are very proud to show it today.
