Making up for time lost in 2013, Auris Apothecary is pleased to announce an absolutely evil event of mammoth sound waves & proportions, returning to the original roots of Black Mass with a focus on regional metal, noise & drone. Black Mass XXIV consists of a triumvirate of artists each performing their own renditions of heaviness, beginning with local solo purveyor of darkness DANTE AUGUSTUS SCARLATTI. Following will be local dual-bass behemoth TORTURESS, returning for the first time in many seasons, freshly outfitted with a new drummer but all the same intensity. Finishing the night will be the Chicago black-noise brotherhood LOCRIAN, recently signed to Relapse Records after a hefty back catalog on numerous reputable independent labels. We are elated to be bringing them to Bloomington, and hope we can prove that this town proudly has a scene dedicated to everything unholy.
