Messe des Morts

Have you ever wanted to see a ton of live black metal in a genuinely cold and grim northern land? Now you can. Details for Sepulchral Productions's third annual Messe des Morts (in English: mass for the dead) Festival have been emerging for the past few weeks, and it's shaping up to be a total doozy. The fest takes place at Montréal's Katacombes and Théâtre Plaza from November 28 through November 30. Unfortunately for us Americans, the first day of the fest conflicts with Thanksgiving, but fuck that. Having a family is not true.

Some highlights from the line-up:

--Norway's Tsjuder, who haven't played Canada in 12 years
--Finland's Horna, who haven't played there at all
--Norway's Gehenna, who haven't played North America at all
--Finland's Sargeist, who also haven't played Canada
--awesome locals Délétère, who will be playing live for the first time ever.
The fest has yet to announce the full lineup or the day-by-day running order, but you can already buy three-day passes for $89 Canadian if you're so inclined. The full line-up is below.

Sargeist, I was gonna call you out for not having an upside down cross in your logo, but at least you have pentagrams.

"The fest has yet to announce the full lineup or the day-by-day running order..."

Here's my vote for having The Julie Ruin close out day one.

I've listened to it for weeks, now. It's pure evil. That guitar tone, especially. I really wasn't that big of a fan of Sanojesi Aarelle, so I think this is a step in the right direction.

When I first started listening to metal, I used to think that Megadeth was "too heavy!", now I love to pay attention to all the colors, textures and the raw powerful emotions that Black metal can produce me! I personally don't know any metalheads that started with black metal to be fair.
