Culture: Hung, at Knitting Factory, Brooklyn, New York
Recently I watched a gig from "Hung", a heavy metal group based in New York (myspace). They performed at the "The End of The World" show at Knitting Factory in Brooklyn, New York (knittingfactory.com) which had a lot of local metal bands.
"Hung" delivered the usual power but they added an unusual melodic element - a violin. The violin player, who`s style reminded me a bit to Nigel Kennedy (wikipedia), was a valuable ingredient. Her play gave the performance more melodic structure and made it more intense.
Well done "Hung"!
