Think of the most metal thing in the world. Whatever you're imagining, there's no way it can measure up to what we're about to tell you.

Deftones frontman Chino Moreno has been announced as the artist to play the Secret Solstice Presents Inside The Volcano event within Iceland's Thrihnuagigur volcano on Saturday, June 18. That's right, Chino is literally going to perform inside a volcano. This is folklore-level shit.

Only 20 people will be allowed to witness the historic event, which will have Moreno (and guests!) lowered 400 feet inside the Earth. Don't worry, the magma chamber is dormant. 

This is the first time in history that anything of this caliber has happened, so, you know, it's a pretty (and totally terrifying) deal.
