Ares Kingdom Taps Mirai Kawashima For Guest Keyboards New Album "Veneration"

Ares Kingdom has tapped Mirai Kawashima (Sigh) for an original keyboard intro to a version of Vulpecula's "Celestial," slated to appear on the band's upcoming all-covers release "Veneration." Other tracks to be included on the album are "Die By Power" (Slaughter Lord), "Act Dead" (Mefisto), "The Captive" (Sacrilege), "When Your Heart Turns Black" (R.U. Dead?), and "Oblivion" (Nepenthe).

Guitarist Chuck Keller commented, "Mirai is one of the most accomplished musicians in the underground today. I was proud to contribute a solo to 'The Memories as a Sinner' on Sigh's 2007 album, 'Hangman's Hymn,' and we're honored he's returning the favor for AK."

"Veneration" is scheduled for release as a gatefold mini-LP and mini-CD in early 2012 through NWN! Productions. Artwork is being handled by Manuel Tinnemans (Pentacle, Bunkur, Necrophagia, Spearhead).

Upcoming Ares Kingdom live dates are as follows:

ENDFest, The Sandbox, Omaha, NE, July 23rd
Gathering of the Bestial Legion V, The Proud Bird, Los Angeles, CA, August 27th
The Jackpot, Lawrence, KS, September 4th
Rites of Darkness pre-fest, The Rabbit, San Antonio, TX, December 8th
