Acheron To Play Central Illinois Metal Festival 2010

Acheron vocalist Vincent Crowley has issued the following announcement about the band appearing at the 2010 edition of the C.I.M. festival:

"It is official, black/death metal fiends Acheron have been booked for the 2010 C.I.M. fest! This will be the first time Acheron has played this festival and the band is very much looking forward to it. In 1991, Acheron released their Satanic album 'Rites of the Black Mass' which was the first time this blasphemous psychodrama was ever set to music! The Black Pope himself (Anton Szandor LaVey) declared Acheron to be one of the few real Satanic bands in the world in his last published book 'Satan Speaks.' Needless to say, this album has become an underground cult classic and is still hailed today!

"Due to the overwhelming response of 'The Last Rites' shows done a couple of years ago, when Acheron played the whole Rites of the Black Mass album in its entirety, the band has agreed to do one last show at the C.I.M. Fest. In fact, Acheron also plans to perform the whole Black Mass on stage and film it for what will hopefully be an upcoming DVD release. So to all you underground metal fans and unholy Satanic warriors, you are invited to come to the Sabbath! This may be the last time you ever get to see Acheron play and perform the Rites of the Black Mass live! Come one, come all! Ad Maiorem Satanae Gloriam!"
