Born out the hell storm of Edmonton, AB, black and doom metal festival Black Mourning Light presented by Crown of Viserys and 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 (Edmonton, AB), BLASPHEMY (Vancouver, BC), RITES OF THY DEGRINGOLADE (Edmonton, AB) and ANTICHRIST (Vancouver, BC). Joining the line up from the United States is Montana's blackened death eaters 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 blackmetal, 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." Tickets will be on sale at Starlite room and online at the following links: Day Ticket - Oct 13 -

About Black Mourning Fest:

Black Mourning Light Metal Festival is the black metal and doom festival founded by Dustin Ekman of Crown of Viserys. Created to fill a void in Edmonton's black and doom scene. After two successful years in 2015 and 2016, Black Mourning Light Festival returns for a 2017 edition. The 2017 onslaught will feature bands from across Canada and USA. Those that attended the 2015 inaugural ritual and the 2016 two day mayhem will not be disappointed by 2017, as they can expect a different while similar experience to those events. Last year's 2016 edition featured a line up of black, death and doom bands from across Canada plus the USA with UADA, Panzerfaust, Erimha, Helleborus, Idolatry, Display of Decay, Vile Insignia, Hive, Wormwitch, Norilsk, Cell, Holocaust Lord, Nachtterror, Dethgod, Ye Goat-Herd Gods and Hunted By Ravens.
