Mechanical engineering and heavy metal music might seem like an unlikely combination, but musician Tristan Shone has found a way to make both work.

A mechanical engineer by trade, Shone, who goes by the stage name is Author & Punisher, says that the way he gets to the essence of heavy metal music is by using heavy metal — literally.  

His one-man heavy metal band consists of at least a dozen odd looking instruments made of steel and other items that he manufactures himself to create and optimize his unique sound and stunning visual performance.
