Since opening in 1999, Adelaide’s premier metal, punk, and flaking paint venue has been entertaining local patrons with some great music and also some ska too.
However, it has been announced via Instagram today that Enigma has shut its doors. The local music scene is mourning not only the loss of an icon, but also the loss of an almost complete mp3 file which began downloading on the notoriously slow public Enigma computers about two decades ago.
The file, titled “break_stuff_linkin_park_nu_metal_rock_korn_slip_knot_best_quality.mp3” was nearing 94 percent completion on LimeWire via a 28k modem at the time of closure. The contents of which will never be known.
Some speculated it would actually be a poor quality version of “Break Stuff”, whereas some believed it would be a very poor mash-up of Papa Roach’s “Last Resort” and Crazy Town’s “Butterfly”.
However, what is most likely is that the file was simply a malware virus that would have ruined the entire PC once complete.
