This week’s Unearthing Forgotten Horrors radio show features fantastic new music from With the Dead, and Youngblood Supercult, alongside our very wonderful Viking Saga SoLA written and directed by Michael Somerset. Tonight’s episode is the second in the series and is called The Draugr.
The second half of tonight’s show is dedicated to the bands playing at the Folk Horror Revival – Winter Ghosts event in Whitby across the weekend of December 15th – 16th, with tracks from The Equestrian Vortex, The Soulless Party, Leasungspell (which is to be performed for the final time) and the legendary Inkubus Sukkubus.
Join me tonight, Monday 11th December from 7pm UK time on a1radio.co.uk and we will head on down the rabbit hole together.
On the weekend of 15th and 16th December 2017, a strange mist will fall upon the coastal town of Whitby. From the sea fret will come haunting sounds and tales and more besides. Here over the coming days we shall in turn usher in the ghosts of winter …
Folk Horror Revival are happy to announce that headlining the music sessions of Winter Ghosts will be Inkubus Sukkubus
Inkubus Sukkubus formed in the summer of 1989, when Candia Ridley and Tony McKormack met at college in Gloucestershire, studying graphic design and photography. They soon discovered they shared interests in witchcraft, magick and folklore, as well as similar tastes in music. The band went on to tour extensively, including Russia, USA, Australia, Mexico, Scandinavia and Europe, and have to date released 22 albums, their latest being ‘Belas Knap: Tales of Witchcraft and Wonder, vol 2’.
Having grown up watching with delight, through barely parted fingers, British films such as Blood on Satan’s Claw and The Wicker Man, folk horror has both shaped them as individuals as well as inspiring the music they create. They will be joined by like-minded friends to perform an acoustic set of some of their more dark folkloric songs for Winter Ghosts.

Where better to spend an engaging winter’s evening in the company of the Folk Horror Revival group, than in the beautiful coastal town of Whitby. This event promises to be one of the highlights of the wyrd calendar, and is most definitely not to be missed.
In the intimate setting of The Metropole, Whitby, we cordially invite you to join us for our winter soiree, a gathering of the clans on the North Yorkshire coast. Folk Horror Revival present a series of exhilarating talks and musical performances for your terpsichorean pleasure.
Beginning at 4pm, the event gets under way with a series of thought provoking oratories with a distinctly local flavour, before we plunge headlong into an evening programme of esoteric, auditory treats for the soul.
