Shadow Woods Metal Fest

swmf_logo2

BLACK YO)))GA will be hosting a workshop at the inaugural Shadow Woods Metal Fest in White Hall, MD this September.

From the website
(http://shadowwoodsmetalfest.com)

“Shadow Woods Metal Fest is a music and camping festival dedicated to bringing underground black metal, doom, death metal, acid folk and psychedelic rock together for three days of musical celebration and respect for nature. We seek to expose audiences to new, unusual and up-and-coming talent that you will not see at the major music festivals held across the US.

Shadow Woods Metal Fest was inspired by the European open air festivals in form and the American fest Stella Natura. There will be onsite tent and cabin camping. We will have workshops and other activities to elevate your mind and body.  Our fest is the result of the hard work of many individuals with diverse backgrounds and musical preferences from across the mid-Atlantic region.

The inaugural Shadow Woods Metal Fest will take place September 25-27, 2015.  The location is in White Hall, MD, which is about 30 minutes north of Baltimore. We have  36 underground bands from a variety of extreme metal genres as well as artists performing off-the-beaten path metal, folk, noise and experimental music.”

“…Since 2012, the music for classes has been a series of mix-tapes. This particular recording, however, was performed and created by the BLACK YO)))GA Meditation Ensemble, an eclectic group of metallic hippies and doomlords, headed up by Kimee’s husband, Scott Massie. This ensemble has created a soundscape tailored to form a heavy meditative space and spread the benefits of yoga to people in their own art and music communities. People who may battle depression, anxiety, alcoholism, drug addiction, trauma/PTSD, phobias, dark passengers, etc., those who may not feel they fit into the typical yoga classes, the people who, in all rights, may need the balance and release of yoga the most to lead rich and fulfilling lives.

This project consists of two releases. The first will be the BLACK YO)))GA DVD/instructional video, Asanas Ritual Vol 1, directed by Joseph Stammerjohn of Eyes To The Sky Films, containing a full one-hour yoga class, stylized and set to their original score. The second release will be a CD version of the soundtrack on its own. Both releases contain plenty of bonus features and will be available in stores and online October 2015 via Screaming Crow Records.”

Introducing: the BLACK YO)))GA Meditation Ensemble

Doom Camp 2015

For immediate release…

BLACK YO)))GA has signed a worldwide deal with Screaming Crow Records to release it’s very first DVD/CD in September 2015!

BLACK YO)))GA, created by 200-hour RYT certified instructor, Kimee Massie, is vinyasa style yoga set to drone, noise, stoner metal, ambient, industrial, space doom, and other traditional meditation music.

A traditional yoga class in practice, however darker than what you may typically associate with the practice in the Western world.
