According to Blabbermouth, it’s Venom‘s first Canadian appearance in 27 years as they play the Noctis V metal festival which takes place September 27 to 29, 2012 at the MacEwan Hall Ballroom in Calgary, Alberta. Venom is playing on September 29, 2012. Venom is, of course, probably the inventor of black metal. As for accompanying Canadian talent, the bill includes Edmonton-based female fronted heavy metal act THE ORDER OF CHAOS, thrash group EPI-DEMIC, tech-death outfit KATAPLEXIS, and prog metallers PHANTOM LIMB, all from Calgary. Heavy-metal band ANCIIENTS and folk-metal act SCYTHIA are also on the bill.
To help Noctis patrons unwind after what is sure to be an epic set by VENOM, the official after party at Vern’s Bar will include a metal and punk set by BLOATED PIG and OH SHIT!
