ANCIENT RITES Sign To Season of Mist

November 28, 2005

Belgian black metal pioneers, ANCIENT RITES, are heading back to the studio to record their long awaited follow-up to 2001’s Dim Carcosa.

“They are also pleased to announce that ANCIENT RITES have found a new record label in Season of Mist, also the home of bands like the legendary MAYHEM, ROTTING CHRIST and ARCTURUS. Needless to say the band is really happy with both the new label and heading back to the Spacelab studio in Germany.”

ANCIENT RITES started recording the new album on November 21st, 2005, under the guidance and supervision of veteran AR producers, Oliver Phillips and Christian Moos.

The album will most likely be released before the summer of 2006, after which ANCIENT RITES, now a septet since the return of former members, Domingo Smets and Raf Jansen, last year, will once again play live to spread their new music. Concerts all over Europe and the U.K. are being negotiated and arranged as we speak, so expect the band to be out there in full blast next year.
