Samael will performing their celebrated third album, ‘Ceremony of Opposites’ in its entirety. This album, which blends black metal with industrial influences including keyboards and samples, signified a change of direction for Samael. With ‘Ceremony,’ Samael departed from the primitive black metal (a la Swiss brethren Hellhammer) sound of their previous recordings and embraced a sound akin to contemporaries such as Celtic Frost, Emperor and even early Dimmu Borgir. With the addition of industrial influences, ‘Ceremony of Opposites’ feels at home in 1990s black metal, yet is a completely unique album. With a new line-up, Samael is excited to revisit their seminal album.

This will be Samael’s first CDF appearance.
