In February/March 2021, ATHEIST returns to Europe and the UK for the first time since 2011. They’ll team up with powerhouses CADAVER and SVART CROWN for a terrifying ENTHRALLED IN EUROPE TOUR!
ATHEIST are widely regarded by those in the know as the pioneers of technical death metal, influencing many of today’s top technical extreme metal bands. During quarantine, members Daniel Martinez, Chris Martin, Yoav-Ruiz Feingold, and Anthony Medaglia kept their chops and produced a series of playthrough videos. The first was for the track ‘Mother Man’ from ATHEIST second album ‘Unquestionable Presence’.
The latest installment brings up ‘And The Psychic Saw’ also from the ‘Unquestionable Presence’ release. The video for ‘And The Psychic Saw’, as well as the video for ‘Mother Man’, can be viewed at the band’s official YouTube page.
The Norwegian CADAVER, founded 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 join this powerful lineup with their brand new fifth 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.
A heavy metal horror concept band FROM HELL, each recording of which is intended to be its own horror story, will complement this tour. On this leg, the US-based metallers will present their new concept album ‘Rats & Ravens’.
The tour will be complemented by opening acts such as CRITICAL MESS (Germany), TYPHUS (Greece), and one more band to be announced soon.
Carefully flex your neck and keep yourself hydrated so that your body is in good shape when this lineup comes to your town and slams your face with pristine death metal wall of sound!
