The Opposition, the new video from occult rockers Ancient VVisdom, can be seen below. The Opposition comes off the band’s debut full-length, A Godlike Inferno, which was released through Shinebox Recordings. The much talked about LP was recorded at Austin’s The Bubble Studio (Built to Spill, Explosions in the Sky, Mammoth Grinder) and delivers “a dark, enlightening foresight into the future of humankind.”
Ancient VVisdom will embark on its first North American tour this coming January as hand-picked openers for Sweden’s mysterious Ghost. The highly anticipated “true occult rock” tour will also include support from Toronto doom rockers Blood Ceremony and promises to be one of underground music’s first bona fide touchstones of the New Year. The Ghost / Blood Ceremony / Ancient VVisdom tour will kick off on January 18 at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City and will run through February 2 in Los Angeles
In additional Ancient VVisdom news, the band has announced a spring European tour in conjunction with an appearance at the 2012 Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, Holland. AVV will perform on April 12, the opening night of next year’s fest (which sold out in an incredible 7 minutes!) and take the stage alongside like-minded acts such as Agalloch, Christian Mistress, Killing Joke and Michael Gira (of Swans-fame).
In its announcement of AVV‘s confirmed performance, Roadburn called the band “honest, accoustic driven, pagan camp-fire doom (not unlike early death rock or neo-folklore) complimented by lyrics ranging from mysteries of the occult, paganism, satanic philosophy, and forbidden knowledge.”
