Piranha teams up with documenta15 - Muslim Black Death Metal Act Hazeen

Piranha teams up with the leading contemporary art exhibition documenta for its next edition in Kassel, Germany (18 June - 25 September 2022).

The main art objective: the release of HAZEEN's record.

Hazeen is an anti-racist Muslim death metal band formed by Sydney-based artists, musicians and academics Safdar Ahmed on vocals and guitar, and Can Yalcinkaya on the drums and darbouka.

Safdar Ahmed, has been invited to take part in the next dokumenta15 edition with a video installation and a collateral album, to be released on Piranha Records. In his own words;

"For our first album 'Sovereign Murders' we are collaborating with Kian Dayani, who plays bass guitar and daf drum, and Kurdish0Iranian trash metal guitarist Kazem Kazemi, who was held as a refugee in Australia's offshore detention camp on Manus Island for 6 years. Our music confronts the expanding field of racism, Islamophobia and bihotry in the contemporary world, critically tackling the tropes of far-right wing ideology, 'timebomb' demographics, refugee panics and taqiyya/halal-food conspiracies. 'Sovereign Murders' will combine the energy of underground metal with Turkish and Iranian rhytms."
