Rites of Darkness III: (Un)holy s***!

Poster as of May 2, details subject to change

. . .

Check out the lineup below for Rites of Darkness III, at San Antonio’s White Rabbit on December 9 to 11, with a pre-fest show on the 8th. (Why don’t they just call it a four-day fest?)

Rites of Darkness is probably the only chance US fans will ever get to see some of these bands, many of whom are international and/or don’t tour much. Adorior??? Antaeus??? Impetuous Ritual??? Mitochondrion??? Mortuary Drape??? Mournful Congregation??? Ondskapt??? Root??? StarGazer??? Urfaust??? It seems too good to be true.

I count 50 bands. My mind boggles at the expense and logistics for shipping all these bands to San Antonio. Are some of them touring the US? Or is this mostly a one-off deal all around? Let’s hope some of these bands play more US cities than San Antonio.

Details for the fest seem only to be on its Facebook page and Last.fm page. From what I can gather, 800 tickets are being sold, with the second batch of 200 going up for sale tomorrow (Wednesday, June 22).
