Today, Spread Evil Productions announces June 26th as the international release date for a new mini-album from Orfvs, Ceremony of Darkness.
Lingering in the shadows for the past decade, Finland's Orfvs formed in 2010 and released a debut demo that year. At the end of 2011 came a 7" EP, The Greatest Sacrifice, for the late/great Hammer of Hate Records. Then silence...
At long last, Orfvs emerge from the shadows with a four-song mini-album fittingly titled Ceremony of Darkness. This is black metal witchcraft at it finest: slow to mid-paced conjurings from the dungeon in the old Gehenna (Norway) style, suffused with medieval synths. It's a sound too long forgotten, but Orfvs know its spells with authenticity, sincerity, and reverence. Ceremony of Darkness fully reeks of that genuinely mystical evil of Satanic darkness and esoteric occultism!
In the meantime, feel the first spell of the brand-new track "The Void Around Anima Mundi" HERE
