BML Festival organizer Dustin Ekman comments:
"We're looking for darker films, and if they are silent even better. The fact that the films would be playing simultaneously as the music is performed limits their volume to zero. Horror, supernatural, fantasy, all the film genres that seem to work best for metal, are welcome. They will be curated and combed over just like the bands that will be playing, and attempts to match the bands and films together will be made, making this a more audio/visual event than Black Mourning Light 2015."
After a successful debut during Halloween 2015, Black Mourning Light Festival returns 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.
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.
