When the finest modern-day musical genre unites with the world’s most refined and revered stylistic approach to music, it is inevitable that the outcome will be nothing short of stunning.
Ladies and gentlemen, if you will, imagine a scenario whereby the music of Black Sabbath - the originators of the entire heavy metal genre - has been turned on its head and lovingly reimagined with a full classical orchestra.
Orchestra Of Doom is the most magical, spellbinding performance you will ever hear. Never before have heavy metal songs been performed by an orchestra without any sign or use of electric amps and speakers present on a stage. This is a world premier event.
The brainchild behind this unique symphonic expression is Ugly Kid Joe front man, life-long Sabbath connoisseur and multi-platinum recording artist Whitfield Crane.
The music was all scored by fast-rising Italian conductor Andrea Basstoni - whose performance credits have led him to be one of the world’s most-sought after young conductors in modern classical music.
Now, with the assistance of good friend and Australian Tennis legend Pat Cash, Orchestra Of Doom arrives in Australia and will see Whit perform with the Philarmonia Australia Orchestra.
And Whit cannot wait for the next instalment of this journey: "How does it feel to be playing with an orchestra? It feels terrifying, but the energy and excitement makes everyone feel alive and at its heart is Black Sabbath - it’s the perfect storm!”
