Satan's acoustic doom mongers ANCIENT VVISDOM have announced their debut UK shows. Friday 13th April 2012 will see the Texan four piece take to the stage for the first time in the UK in Brighton, kicking off a seven date tour of the country.

Comments frontman Nathan Opposition:

"Ready to rampage through UK and Europe! Soul destruction is our creation. Your devastation, our delight. VVe're coming for you. So you be forewarned"

ANCIENT VVISDOM took shape in 2009 when former INTEGRITY members Nathan Opposition and Michael Jochum joined forces with IRON AGE bassist Justin "Ribs" Mason.  The trio immediately began sharpening their darkened craft using acoustic guitars to create music with an organic connection to the nefarious rites they begat while incorporating electric guitar effects, synth sounds, vocal harmonies and abstract percussion to give a deeper, ethereal quality to their minimalist arrangements. Nathan Opposition's powerfully honest voice casts lyrics that conjure "mysteries of the occult, paganism, satanic philosophies and forbidden knowledge".

The album "A Godlike Inferno" - released earlier this year via Shinebox Recordings - was met with rave reviews, with the band receiving high accolades for their deeply dark and original sound, and these shows will be highly anticipated.
