Von Streaming New Single

Following the unleashing of the first "Dark Gods" installment, the second in the malevolent trilogy from black/death corruptors Von is nearly upon us.

Entitled "Dark Gods: Rise Of The Ancients" and completely envisioned and created by Von’s sole entity Venien, part two of the "Dark Gods" trilogy infiltrates the classic low-fi blackened monstrosities with which Von is synonymous, with more demonic rock, guttural vocal torment, and a plodding/maniacal occult doom murkiness.

The first plague from the trilogy comes as an advance single titled "Ritual Of The Black Mass." Initially released via Terrorizer Magazine’s covermount Fear Candy #121 CD compilation inside issue 127, the audio for “Ritual Of The Black Mass” is now streaming via VON’s official Bandcamp page. Check it out below.

Full details on the upcoming release of "Dark Gods II: Rise of The Ancients" will be revealed shortly in the bleak Summer months ahead. Von will manifest material from the "Dark Gods" trilogy live on foreign shores this Summer on the now seventeen-city Ritual of The Black Mass European Tour 2013, beginning this Wednesday, June 19th in Oberhausen, Germany.
