Black Mourning Light 2017 Lineup Revealed

Born out the hell storm of Edmonton, AB, the black and doom metal festival Black Mourning Light presented by Crown of Viserys and GigFly.ca will unleash the most brutal line up to date for the 2017 edition hosted on October 13th and 14th at the Starlite Room.

This year's infernal ritual features legends from Canada's black metal scene with headliners Revenge, Blasphemy Rites Of Thy Degringolade, and Antichrist. Joining the line up from the United States is Montana's blackened death crew Fortress, Los Angeles black / death legends Gravehill, and Ohio's nefarious Funeral of God. From the surrounding Western Canadian metal scene, the carnage is intensified with Xul, Ares Infernus, Sorguinazia, Scythra, and Goathammer.

BML organizer Dustin Ekman comments: "This year we are taking extreme to a new level for Black Mourning Light, and I couldn't be more honoured to have true legends in black metal on the festival. Revenge and Blasphemy are two of the biggest names in black metal, and with them are some of the best bands in the world to create an absolutely killer lineup. This is a year to not be missed, that's for sure." More...

Sunday Old School: BMHM Part 2. Blasphemy

Black Metal History Month is up and running once again, covering some of the darkest and most brutal bands to ever lace up a pair of boots. It's a genre often associated with the freezing cold, in part due to the barren tone and unforgiving nature of the music, but also due to many of the genre's most famous (or rather infamous) bands such as Mayhem, Emperor and Burzum originating in Norway, while other bands like Dissection and Impaled Nazarene also hail from cold countries such as Sweden and Finland respectively. Today we'll be looking at another group from one of the world's chillier nations, though this time on the other side of the Atlantic, as Sunday Old School travels to Canada to take a look at what is perhaps North America's best black metal band, Blasphemy.

Blasphemy were formed in 1984 in Vancouver, British Columbia by childhood friends Sean Stone and Gerry Buhl, adopting the respective monikers of 3 Black Hearts of Damnation and Impurity and Nocturnal Grave Desecrator and Black Winds. They were joined in their pursuit by guitarist Geoff Drakes, AKA Caller of the Storms, before adding a second guitar player the following year in the guise of Blake Cromwell, who took on the name Black Priest of the 7 Satanic Blood Rituals. The group started out covering songs by the likes of Sodom, Slayer and Bathory and immediately made a name for themselves when they began performing live, as according to Black Hearts, the show caused a riot in the streets, a factor in the group being blacklisted from Vancouver along with too many fights breaking out at shows.
