Formicarius - Live Booking
Formicarius’ combination of skilful musicianship, absorbing atmosphere, unforgettable melody and sheer, devastating power is tailor made for the stage. Fearsome songs like their very first single ‘Lake Of The Dead’ take on additional gravitas and grandeur in the live arena and all who witness the band are left hungry for more. Since their arrival on the UK black metal scene in 2014 the band’s stock has risen at a formidable rate, especially since their signing to German label, Schwarzdorn Production.
In 2019 Formicarius released their second album for Schwarzdorn – Rending the Veil Of Flesh. Featuring the drumming of Benighted’s Kevin Paradis and guest appearances from Rotting Christ’s Sakis Tolis and Aklash’s Nicholas Miller, Rending The Veil Of Flesh is a truly mesmerising invocation of darkness. Both Rending The Veil Of Flesh and its predecessor, Black Mass Ritual have burned their way into the hearts of music critics worldwide.
Formicarius’ dramatic music is never more powerful than when performed live, with each musician thriving on the stage, adding a wicked vitality to their dark hymns.
Previously the band have performed with the likes of Ancient Ascendant, Hate, Negura Bunget, Noctem, Tengger Cavalry, De Profundis, The Infernal Sea, Asagraum, Aklash and more.
They have also appeared at festivals such as:
Warhorns Winterfest – with The Great Old Ones and Darkher
The Black Advent – with Ekpyrosis
Dark Clouds Over Camden – with Hecate Enthroned
Northern Symphony Festival – with Old Corpse Road
Easter Abomination – with Iniquitous Savagery
