Edmonton’s Black & Doom Fest ‘Black Mourning Light’
Band Submissions Starting Feb 1st For 2016 Edition
October 22, 2016
Rendezvous Pub, Edmonton
Tickets range from $30 to $40
Edmonton, AB based Black Mourning Light Metal Festival, a celebration of black, doom, and dark death metal is proud to announce after a successful debut during Halloween 2015 that they will be returning for a 2016 edition set for October 22nd. The onslaught will be held at the Rendezvous Pub with a lineup of bands from across Western Canada all in the vein of black and doom metal along with select death styles. Last year’s line up included 11 bands from three provinces such as headliner Idolatry (Edmonton), Altars of Grief (Regina), Noire (Winnipeg), Ossific (Winnipeg), Vile Insignia (Calgary) and more.
Those that attended the 2015 inaugural ritual will not be disappointed by 2016, as they can expect a different while similar experience to that event. Due to the proximity of Samhain, costume prizes will still be awarded to those who wish to dress up early and celebrate the season.
Bands interested in playing at Black Mourning Light 2016 can apply beginning February 1st at the following link below with submissions ending on July 1st and 2016 lineup revealed in August: https://blackmourninglight.wordpress.com/apply-to-play-bml-2016/ (link live Feb 1st)

Conceived in March 2015 and executed on October 31, 2015, 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, the inaugural event brought 11 bands from three provinces together on one stage for the one-day event. Headlined by Edmonton’s own Idolatry, Regina’s Altars of Grief, and Winnipeg’s Noire, Black Mourning Light also featured Körperlose Stimme, Vile Insignia, Numenorean, and more.
