Born out the hell storm of Edmonton, AB, black and doom metal festival Black Mourning Light presented by Crown of Viserys and GigFly.ca returns for its third installment. They have taken the meaning of extreme to new levels with this year’s 2017 edition hosted on October 13th and 14th at the Starlite Room.
This year’s infernal ritual features legends BLASPHEMY (Vancouver, BC) and REVENGE (Edmonton, AB) headlining plus some of the most insane black metal and death metal acts to ever grace a stage with EVILHEART (Mexico), FORTRESS (Kalispell, MT), GRAVEHILL (Los Angeles, CA) and FUNERAL OF GOD (Canton, OH) plus a carnage of Western Canada acts that includes RITES OF THY DEGRINGOLADE (Edmonton, AB), ANTICHRIST (Vancouver, BC), XUL (Armstrong, BC), SORGUINAZIA (Edmonton, AB), SCYTHRA (Regina, SK) and GOATHAMMER (Saskatoon, SK).
BML organizer Dustin Ekman comments:
“This year we are taking Black Mourning Light to a new level of brutality, 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 black metal 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 are available at the following Edmonton locations Starliteroom, Blackbyrd Myoozik, Rendezvous Pub and online at the following links:
Tickets are $45 for one day, $75 for both days.

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.
