What On EARTH Is Gutterdämmerung? We Spoke To Its Creators And They Explained EVERYTHING!

If you were at Download Festival last weekend and found yourself absent-mindedly bumbling into the Maverick Stage tent on the Friday evening, you may have wondered what sort of madness lay in front of you.

Part live-show, part-heavy metal opera, Gutterdämmerung is taking over the world and had Donington eating from its collective palm throughout its Friday headline set.

But what exactly IS Gutterdämmerung? What's the story? How does it work? You've probably heard that some massive names are involved with the project - Iggy Pop, Josh Homme, Jesse Hughes, Grace Jone, Lemmy... - but what EXACTLY do they do in it?!

We caught up with the production's creators and stars at Download Festival to get the full skinny. Give the interview below a whirl to find out everything you need to know about the heaviest silent movie on earth.

So now you know!
