Ahhhhhhhh can't wait!
I can't find the lineup for the first date (it had Nunslaughter & Midnight..right?) but last years bands were incredible. That'd be awesome if Nyogthaeblisz could play since they didn't make it.

Also, while the lineup is probably set, it would be fucking amazing if you brought GoatPenis out for the 2011 show they've been speaking of :D

Mortuary Drape are easily one of the greatest occult acts of all time. Get everything and ignore the horrendous album cover of their last one.
Sargiest and Behexen and essentially the same thing, both are awesome.
Cianide are amazing, as is the Demigod album that will be played. The whole lineup is fantastic.

It isn't really, it's what the Mentors called their music and for some reason Ive run into people calling Midnight it (they sing about rape a lot, but I think it's a pretty stupid genre name.)

I'm actually glad I don't care about any of the prefest bands, doubt I could make it there by thursday.

It's not my show; I'm not the promoter though I do know him. But I really want as many people as possible hear about it. It's in my best interest to see that there's a 4th edition in 2012 since I'm excited to see so many of these bands.

I guess I haven't really listed out who I personally want to see. In alphabetical order, I'm looking forward to seeing Behexen, Evoken, Funebrarum, Hour of 13, Ignivomous, Ilsa, Impetuous Ritual, Loss, Mortuary Drape, Mournful Congregation, Sargeist, Stargazer, Urfaust, Vasaeleth (again), and Weapon. And then Ondskapt, Wodensthrone, and Oak for the pre-fest.

Basically I like doom and black metal.

I am seriously, seriously considering saving and going to this.

Do you have any tips on good places to stay that are close/within walking distance of the venue?

Womb
04-08-2011, 12:52 AM
Um.. last year Alamo Lodge was the main place to stay. It's cheap and there's usually a fest discount. But be warned.. can be exceptionally dirty/broken down/disgusting depending on the room you get. I brought my own pillow and blankets last year. I'm sure people will gravitate towards this place because of previous fests/parties being held there.

Other place we'll be doing discounts is the Rodeway Inn, which I haven't been to but I hear is better.

Last year the bands all stayed at one place but they'll be split up a bit more this time due to their own preferences for partying or privacy.

But yeah.. there will be hotel suggestions on the website, whenever it's up again.

Antaeus and possibly 2 others that haven't been announced would be the headliners. If not.. then I would guess Zemial/Demigod. That's another reason why the running lineup isn't complete or even near so. Depends on who else we get.

Some of the bands like Akitsa are missing from that lineup so maybe they'll be in the TBA slots? I'm pretty sure they mentioned at least one more aside from them though, and it's already beyond stacked.

Same goes for Midnight being under Hour of 13, Midnight are huge(within the crowd that would attend RoD.)

I can see Zemial over Sargeist, but it's close. I'm sure the reason they ended up that way is Zemial's "only American performance ever" thing.

Eh to be honest, I'd never even heard of Zemial until they were announced for this festival. Most of the people I know hadn't either and we knew most of the other bands. On lastfm, Zemial has 4k listeners and Sargeist has 20k, so it's a weird decision for sure. I'm glad they were announced though...the Zemial record is great.

That's what I'm thinking about doing. A lot of people said they walked from the Super 8 to the White Rabbit last year and it wasn't a big hassle.

And yeah, Antaeus is the reason I'm going to this. Inner War was one of my first metal songs, and Blood War III is one of my favorite metal songs ever. I CAN'T WAIT :drool:

Root fucking rules too and is legendary :cool:

not at the White Rabbit anymore.

Well if you tell them you had plane tickets to somewhere for months before the class even started, then you can probably get away with changing the exam to an earlier date. They never let you take the exam late unless you somehow get into some insane accident and wind up in the hospital. Good luck on it. I wanted to move my Physics exam I have tomorrow from 4-6pm up a few days but didn't think Motley Crue/Poison pregaming was a good enough reason :lol:

It depends on the professor. I've never had to reschedule one, but I know with some professors it would've been no sweat, and with others they would've said "either take it on the designated date or take a 0." The latter though would definitely be a rarer case.

You most likely won't have a problem working it out.

Yes, but aren't we talking about final exams here? I had to reschedule two during-semester exams (I think) for that show. I've never rescheduled a final exam that I remember, however. Finals will be more difficult to reschedule because most universities operate on a school-wide exam schedule the last few days of the semester, meaning it's up to the university, not the professor, to decide when each class takes its final.

Regardless, I think if you talk to your professor early in the semester about it, and say you have plane tickets for those dates, you'll be able to work it out.

I am considering staying at a campground that's about 15 minutes away and I can just take the bus to the venue and a taxi back whatever nights I want to drink. At least I know my sleeping bag won't have bedbugs. Cost of camping plus cab rides are less than half the price of most of the hotels.

My first show at the White Rabbit was the evening with Amon Amarth this spring and for all of the stuff I read online the neighborhood that the venue is in really isn't that shitty and it didn't seem extremely dangerous or anything. Of course my baseline of comparison for danger level is Detroit.

I probably would not have gotten a ticket without them or Behexen (or at least some other never-play-the-US euro band I love) but not much to do now, and I'm sure the fest will still be a blast.

According to Mitochondrion's Facebook page:

LESS THAT A MONTH until Rites of Darkness! Consider this a role call for the die hard elite!! Who amongst you will be in attendance? Mitochondrion will be playing the Sunday right after Cruciamentum and Vasaeleth. A solid block of the most vicious death metal currently in existence!

Our set list is as follows:

Part 1 : Parasignosis
PLAUGE EVOCKATION (PIV,VA I)
LEX EGO EXITUS (PIV,VA II)
TETRAVIRULENCE (PIV,VA III)
TRIALS
PARASIGNOSIS
Part 2 : Archaeaeon
CHAPTER 11
AGONIZING (IN THE SHADOW OF THE HAMMERBLOW)
ETERNAL CONTEMPT OF MAN

Until then comrades! This will also be Mitochondrion's first set as a 4 piece in 3 years ...

Uh oh...
"Mortuary Drape wants to announce to every tour manager, promoter, band and venue's owner that for us, the american tour planned for december is cancelled, due to incompetence of tour manager Danny Serna and co. We were contacted in february 2011 and to this day we have still not clear the situation and no guarantees from them. We put our face, name, the band reputation and we absolutely cannot risk that our shows would be ruined by an unskilled promoter. We normally pretend the best from us, even more we pretend to give more than the best to all of you during the show. So Mortuary Drape doesn't wants to be considered the person in charge of any mistake or problem during the tour, it could be a manager's mistake but who put the face and take all the complaints is always the band, this would give you a bad reputation of us and we cannot accept this. So we PRETEND the best to give the best,because our fan deserve only the best from us! With this mail we want to say sorry to everyone that had believed and still believe in us and hope to see finally Mortuary Drape play for the first time in the USA. Our renunciation is forced by not professional people that haven't the right competence to schedule a professional tour and had a bad behaviour by treating us as a band of young kids, with all the respect for young bands (we were young and inexperienced too, of course), but now we absolutely can't accept such a kind of low treatment after 25 years of activity in the metal scene. Now we undertake to put right this problem, we are going to try to contact new managements and promoters that could help us in a not so far future to plan another american tour for everybody there. We hope that everyone(primarily our fans, then clubs,supporter bands, etc...)can understand our reasons, because we were really looking forward to play in front of a fucking american black metal crowd! We ask you to distrust such people and if you want to complain to the real culprits of this tour cancellation, down below you can find the e-mail address. danny.serna.ds@gmail.com In Spirituals - The 13 Drape "

I know Blasphemophagher and Diocletian got fucked over big time last year, and rumor has it Sargiest/Behexen canceled due to some drama with this Danny guy. Annnd buzz is about of more bad stuff on the way :hmm:
