“The album as a whole is a sneak peek into a larger project to be released in several three-movement chunks over the next several years. It is an arrangement of Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring – a ballet written in 1913 that shocked audiences to the point of starting a riot in Paris. The aesthetic of the work is considered part of the ‘primitivism’ movement from the early modernist period in that its basic ingredients are simplistic and rhythmic, with melodies inspired by Russian folk melodies. The music retains its dissonance through its strange use of harmony and colour, angular rhythms, and sudden changes. Our arrangement and use of samples paint a sonic picture of ritualistic murder from the Midsommar festivities.” – 30 immolated; 16 returned

30 immolated ; 16 returned Hamilton, Ontario

30 immolated; 16 returned are Hamilton, Canada's most despicable extreme metal band. Developed through intense and abstract systematic theories of chaos and transgression – 30 immolated depicts the sexual taboos found in the Marquis de Sade’s 120 Days of Sodom, through a non-stop battery of screaming guitars, punishing drums, and thundering bass accompanied by the cries of torture and violence. ... more
