Tempestarii distill black metal into its sentiment of cathartic ritual through immersive live performances. The band has existed since 2013, previously as IX. Russian label Chaos At Feast is the latest chapter in the Tempestarii legacy, since beginning in 2012. Early productions were raw and low fidelity until the band lineup expanded into a live unit that explored repetitive themes and trance-inducing songs. Bringing a potent atmosphere, lit only by candles, Tempestarii pulled listeners further into their realm. Tempestarii delivered it's candle-lit performance at Red River Fest In Austin, Texas in 2018, and 2019 saw the bands first headlining international tour through Canada and the Pacific Northwest, stopping to headline Edmonton's Black Mourning Light festival along the way.
