BEHEMOTH and CRADLE OF FILTH – spreading even more infernal darkness across Europe– two more confirmed shows as well as one bigger venue in Oberhausen!
Looks like February will all be under the sign of the black sun: British Dark/Black Metal stars CRADLE OF FILTH will embark on a European co-headlining tour together with Polish Black Metal legende BEHEMOTH – big time. Two more shows have just been confirmed for 12th Feb In Lyon as well as 20th Feb In Bologna. The Oberhausen show on 15th Feb has been put in a bigger venue, Turbinenhalle 2, in the meanwhile.
BEHEMOTH might have been a classic black metal act in their early days (circa “Sventevith” 1995), but the priorities of mastermind Nergal shifted quickly: the following years saw the band opt for a death metal approach, and progressive / experimental influences turned BEHEMOTH into a multi-faceted and unique beast on albums such as “Zos Kia Cultus” (2002)! After the landmark release of “Evangelion” (2009), Nergal had to face leukemia – and battled this severe disease successfully! They`ll release “The Satanist” in 2014 and you can look forward to pitch-black shows pairing avant-garde spirit with the atmosphere of a black mass!!!
“We are immensely proud to start promotion of “THE SATANIST” on the release date of the album in such a noble company. It’s been a while since More >

Put on your leather jackets and raise those fists in the air – because pure steel will greet you on stage soon!!! German true metal giants MAJESTY will embark on a headliner tour in February and March 2014, and supporting them will be like-minded Hungarian act WISDOM and Hamburg-based metal merchants STORMWARRIOR.
With their comeback album “Thunder rider”, MAJESTY proved in January 2013 that they still stand for finest teutonic true metal and unmatched anthems galore! No wonder the album entered the German charts at #55. A quality level that “Banners high” seems to surpass with ease: said metal manifesto will be unleashed on the masses December 20th, 2013, and fans can look forward to epic songs, glorious vocals and incredible shredding! “Banners high” is also the first-ever concept album in the band`s history and tells a fantasy story penned by MAJESTY singer Tarek „MS“ Maghary himself.
Since th eir founding in 2001, Hungarian guardians of steel WISDOM love to combine epic spirit with pure-bred power metal that gives acts like BLIND GUARDIAN a run for its money: after the release of »Judas« and a tour with genre giants SABATON, it`s now time to defend WISDOM`s new standing in the scene with More >

Already three years ago ENFORCER and SKULL FIST have been touring throughout Europe as a package. Together they are a grant for an evening full of timeless classic Heavy Metal. Their mixture between speed, steely guitar riffs as well as catchy melodies is making every fan of bands such as Iron Maiden, Riot or Exciter fond of them. For ENFORCER the tour not only means a perfect start into the new year, it ´s also the perfect celebrating of their 10th band anniversary.
SKULL FIST are joining in as a co-headlliner. Since the young Canadians have won a “Rock Nation Award” in 2010 for the guys around singer Jackie Slaughter things have going upwards permanently.

Fans as well as interested people who haven ´t heard about THAUROROD so far can check it out here:
The track is a perfect example for the Epic Symphonie Metal the band plays. “HEART OF THE LION is very melodic and catchy but also quite atmospheric tune! It has groovy beats and riffs, awesome vocal lines and nice keyboard stuff! It’s a cool song and most importantly, it makes you feel good!” the band explains.
The guys are often compared with genre heroes such as SONATA ARCTICA (Mainman Tony Kakao even is a big fan of them), DRAGONFORCE or STRATOVARIUS, but even though the band has developed their own style. “We have started recording in December 2012 the Drums at Rockstar Productions in our hometown Hyvinkää”, bass player Pasi Tanskanen tells about the album. „After that all band members have continued working in their homestudios. We have mixed the record at D-Studio in Klaukkala, Fnnland. Jassi knows how a Metal album has to sound and that ´s why the tunes on the album really kick ass.” Also a line More >
SEPULTURA’s new record »The Mediator Between Head And Hands Must Be The Heart« was released on October 25th via Nuclear Blast and the band have now revealed
the official video for the track ‘The Vatican’ over on YouTube. The video was directed by Rafael Kent and filmed in downtown São Paulo-SP.
Guitarist Andreas Kisser commented on the video:
“It shows various obscure facets of the church, from corruption to pedophilia, a dark side that many people like to ignore. The actors were very well selected,
all with strong and striking expressions. The video tells the story of a priest who wants to leave the church because of all this dirt, and suffers pressure
from the inside not to leave. It’s rather heavy and tense”.
Check out the band’s most intense video to date, here: http://youtu.be/SSqYDgT-ykg
The album was recorded with renowned producer Ross Robinson (KORN, MACHINE HEAD, FEAR FACTORY), who worked with SEPULTURA on their
landmark 1996 release »Roots« and co-produced by Steve Evetts (THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, SYMPHONY X, INCANTATION), who previously worked
on SEPULTURA’s »Roorback« (2003), the »Revolusongs« EP (2002) and »Nation« (2001).
The track listing for the album is as follows:
01. Trauma Of War
02. The Vatican
03. Impending Doom
04. Manipulation of Tragedy
06. The Bliss Of Ignorants

Swedish trio GRAND MAGUS will be the leaders of the tasty pack: exceptional vocalist JB and his boys were real doom merchants in the early days of their career with their self-titled debut (2001) and
“Monument” (2003) – but on “Iron Will” (2008) and “Hammer Of The North” (2010) they decided to sell their souls to classic and unadulterated heavy metal that would even make Ronnie James Dio proud! In 2012 they thrilled press and fans alike with the pounding “The hunt” that entered the German album charts at #42. GRAND MAGUS are currently in the studio to record their seventh album which will hit the shelves on January 31 st , 2014!
