AFGELAST – Cadaver – Atheist – Svart Crown – From Hell
The pinnacles of extreme metal from their respective countries and death metal domains have teamed up for a terrific tour over Europe and the United Kingdom.
The Americans ATHEIST are considered to be one of the founders of technical death metal. This September, the band returns to Europe for the first time since 2011 with their new album. Founded in 1988 by Steve Flynn and Kelly Shaefer, the band became a peer of technical progressive metal by incorporating jazz, fusion and Latin American music into good old death metal.
The Norwegian CADAVER, found by Anders Odden (SATYRICON, ORDER), is a prime example of a true Nordic mindset when it comes to death metal. One of the first Norwegian extreme metal bands, re-gathered for the first time since 2004, is coming back to life with Dirk Verbeuren (MEGADETH, ex-SOILWORK) on drums. The band will present its new digital EP titled DGAF, just released through Nuclear Blast.
The French blackened death metal monsters SVART CROWN will supplement this powerful trio with their brand new 5th studio album Wolves Among the Ashes, released earlier this year through Century Media. Five albums and over ten years of heavy touring made SVART CROWN one of the French bands a true lover of death metal should see anytime they come by.
This tour will be complemented by a heavy metal horror concept band FROM HELL, each recording of which is intended to be its own horror story. On this leg, the US-based metallers will present their new concept album Rats & Ravens. Opening bands for selected shows will be announced soon.
Carefully flex your neck and keep yourself hydrated so that your body is in a good shape when this lineup comes to your town and slams your face with pristine death metal wall of sound!
