Ritual Festival Announces First Bands

The organisers of the British death and doom metal based Rituals Festival has confirmed their first batch of names for the 2017 edition of the event, which will take place on 8th April 2017. Early bird tickets are currently on sale for a mere £25, rising to £30 in the future and can be purchased here. A message from the organisers reads as follows:

"Firstly thanks to all of you that supported Ritual this year. I’m happy to say the festival will be returning to Canal Mills, Leeds in April 2017 with a diverse and unique line-up. We have taken the time to combine some of the UK's newest, as well as established talented acts along with some special and exclusive favourites just for you. We are honoured to have Ihsahn headline the festival but we also can’t wait to reveal many more incredible bands for you over the coming months."

Perhaps the most prominent announcement is that former Emperor frontman Ihsahn will be headlining the festival, where he will be promoting his latest album, "Arktis" and has also hinted that he could debut some new material at the show, stating:

"I am honoured to headline Ritual Festival next year, and I´m looking forward to bringing you a set of Ihsahn past, present and maybe a dash of future as well. See you all there!" More...

Misery Index Releases New Video

Baltimore death metal outfit Misery Index has released a new video for the track "The Harrowing," available below thanks to Lambgoat.com.

The clip was directed by David Hall/Handshake Inc. and "The Harrowing" is taken from the band's new album "The Killing Gods." Regarding the new video, Director David Hall comments:

"In February, Jason Netherton asked me if I would be interested in making a second video for 'The Killing Gods' for the track 'The Harrowing.' Of course, the answer was ‘yes’ and we started talking about ideas. Jason had the concept of some sort of nefarious cult or gang that kidnaps someone, tortures them, tries to indoctrinate them, and eventually kills their victim. After some research and thought we came up with the idea of a Zodiac style outfit, just because the associated meaning is kind of open ending, and honestly, it’s creepy as hell.

"So, while the costumes were being made, Jason and I did some location scouting and watched a bunch of weird cult videos and such and mapped the basic plot. The band also had some great footage filmed in Europe on their tour last summer, so we decided to incorporate that as well. After the initial cut, I felt something was missing a bit, so we had Jeff singer/guitarist Mark Kloeppel film some footage performing the song, which was shot by Jeff Grindstopher of Grindstopher productions, and we decided to incorporate some of the killer artwork Gary Ronaldson of Bite Radius Designs had created for 'The Killing Gods' album. I feel this video is a bit of a departure from some of the stuff I normally do, which I am really happy about.

"To me this feels like a classic metal video…some great shots of the bands performing, creative footage to mirror some of the meaning of the song, and a little bit of the old ultraviolence. On a side note, when we were filming some of the Zodiac dudes in a field, a concerned citizen called the police and reported “a bunch of big, masked dudes in a field wearing crosses are up to no good.” At least the cops had a sense of humor about it when they showed up."
