Last Day of Beethoven (photo supplied by the band)


This week The Myanmar Times has published an excellent story on the Myanmar death metal band Last Day of Beethoven, written by Lwin Mar Htun and titled “Waiting for Beethoven”. The story can be seen online here.

I took some video footage of Last Day of Beethoven performing live at the Jam It concert in Yangon on December 6, 2013. It consists of concert footage with a studio soundtrack. The first half of the video features Last Day of Beethoven, while the second half showcases Yangon punk bank No U Turn. The video can be seen at The Myanmar Times channel on You Tube.

For more on the Myanmar death metal scene, see my story “The last day of pleasant music” published by Southeast Asia Globe magazine in April 2013.

Another, much longer, death metal concert video I made in 2013 can be seen on here on Vimeo. The sound is terrible but the visuals are fairly decent.

Myanmar death metal on video

Below is a link to some video footage I took at the “We Are the Legend” metal and hardcore matinee in Yangon on May 17. Three bands are represented: Last Day of Beethoven, Suicide Plan and Tagadoom. The visuals are okay, but the sound is pretty crap, due to the fact that I very stupidly forgot to bring my external microphone to the concert. Enjoy …
