Black Twilight Circle Rituals - 4/22, 4/23

Concert wise, Las Vegas is a pretty dry area, and for the most part our metal scene is relatively nonexistent, with the exception of around 20-30 people. Lucky for us, the Black Twilight Circle bands come out here every now and then and play a show (or two), such as this past weekend. On Friday, there was a house show which involved Arizmenda, Dolorvotre, Shataan, and In Lak'ech Ala K'in (Las Vegas black metal), and the following day there was a cave show involving the aforementioned (With the exception of Dolorvotre), Alarido (Las Vegas blackened d-beat/crust), Kuxan Suum, Blue Hummingbird on the Left, Ashdautas and Volahn. Unfortunately, due to work, I wasn’t able to arrive at the caves until midway through Volahn, but nonetheless it was quite an experience.

For those of you that are not familiar with the Black Twilight Circle, you’re missing out. The BTC is a group of musicians with a variety of projects (primarily black metal), ranging from tortured shrieks (Ashdautas), to a militant onslaught (Blue Hummingbird on the Left), to Amebix infused with black metal (Axeman) and much more. You can check them out at and also order merch at

Instead of writing a detailed review of the show, I will let the pictures I took speak for themselves, but if you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments section below (note: the pictures sort of clash with the text on the right, so I recommend scrolling to the bottom, clicking the link, and viewing them through my photography page).
