Paraskevidekatriaphobia [A morbid, irrational fear of Friday the 13th. When you can pronounce the word, you're cured.]
Coming September we are crossing the Channel for our first shows on English soil.
To demonstrate we’re definitely not superstitious we play in ‘The Asylum 2′ in Birmingham on the most suitable date possible: Friday the 13th of September.
The very next day we’re heading to ‘The Cockpit’ in Leeds (Saturday, September 14th).
Our friends and colleagues of Winterfylleth will evidently headline both shows.
Supportbands are ‘Hordes‘ in Birmingham and ‘Acolyte‘ and ‘Ninkharsag‘ in Leeds.
We’re looking forward to meet the Brummies and the Loiners!
With pride we present the video for our song ‘Blood Libel’ – first track on our latest album ‘Ritu‘.
The video was directed by Nicolas Daenens, who previously worked with the band on the “Plaigh Allais” video two years earlier.
The video was shot in the region known as “Meetjesland” in Belgium, both in the woods and in an abandoned church.
A synopsis of the “Blood Libel” by our frontman Dennie Grondelaers :
The video of “Blood Libel” is a somewhat liberal interpretation of the track on our latest album. It tells the story of William of Norwich, a young kid from the 12th century (°1132 – †1144) that was found murdered in cold blood.
A murder for which the Jews were falsely accused.
We’ve created new “Fhtagn” shirts, in collaboration with Costin Chioreanu from Twilight13media.
Available on red, grey and black shirts in our webshop.
The design shows Great Cthulhu as He sleeps in His sunken city of R’lyeh, waiting for the stars to be right.
This promises His return and the continuation of His maddening reign on earth.
We dread this day, but we glorify His name!
