Heavy Metal Ballet Production 'Forged' Scheduled For January

The End Records is one of the sponsors for the upcoming production "Forged" by New York City's heavy metal ballet company Ballet Deviare.

The ballet company will present the production of "Forged" at The Abrons Arts Center, Henry Street Settlement January 5-7, 2007.

With the genres of death, doom, grind and folk metal intrinsic to their repertoire, it's easy to see why the company has been able to establish an international following based on their engaging live performances.

Since its inception in 2003, Ballet Deviare's founders Laura Kowalewski and Andrew Carpenter have strictly utilized heavy metal for its entire repertoire. This year James Malone of ARSIS will perform the entire 13-minute version of ARSIS' "A Diamond for Disease" and artist Tony Koehl will be painting art during the production. Also, Brooklyn-based black/death/folk band GWYNBLEIDD will perform the song "Awakening" live during the ballet company's performance.
