Vader Announce North American Tour
June 25, 2009
Polish deathsters Vader will team up with Santa Cruz, California’s Decrepit Birth, L.A.’s Warbringer, The Amenta from Australia, S.W.W.A.A.T.S. from Florida, and Montreal, Canada’s Augury for a 38-show “Decibel Presents: Monsters Of Death Tour” through North America beginning November 4th in Baltimore, Maryland.

Vader guitarist/vocalist Piotr "Peter" Wiwczarek shares his thoughts on the upcoming trek: “Metal always was and still needs to be a brotherhood. All we were doing [in the past] to support the music and the scene was cooperating with other bands. Natural selection decides if a band is really dedicated or if it's just an episode. Not much has changed today, actually. Even if the so-called ‘metal music business’ changed some rules, there will still be those who play with passion and those who want success. It is not us who wanna be ‘a judge,’ so we always try to tour with bands we have a good relationship with. A good time and a friendly atmosphere is important for all of us. I only hope that everybody will enjoy the tour and will come away with good lessons from it... like we in Vader always do. Deciding on a set list is always a problem. With every new album, the problem grows bigger and bigger. I decide the set list and I'm always confused. Usually, I try to mix some of old Vader hits with new stuff. The set might be different and depends on the conditions. For the upcoming tour through the USA and Canada, we're gonna make the set slightly different from our shows in Poland and Western Europe. I also asked our fans about their favorite Vader songs. It may help me make a choice. I wish we could play all of our new songs, but it is not possible. I think we'll do 5 pieces from 'Necropolis' and mix them in with some old Vader. The veterans and also the new ‘in-Vader's will find something interesting for sure! After the maniacs learn the new album better, we can always add more songs.”

The Monsters of Death Tour will mark the North American debut of Vader's live line-up:
- Piotr "Peter" Wiwczarek – Guitar/Vocals
- Waclaw "Vogg" Kieltyka (Decapitated) - Guitar
- Reyash - Bass

Thrash And Burn Euro Tour Details Announced
January 21, 2009
The Thrash & Burn European Tour, presented by Imperial Clothing in conjunction with Avocado Booking and Outerloop Management, have announced the tour’s inaugural run in Europe.

The Thrash & Burn European tour aims to give the underground metal fan an inexpensive way to see a diverse package of the most relevant bands today. Darkest Hour and Bleeding Through will be supported by Beneath the Massacre, Carnifex, War From a Harlot’s Mouth, Arsonists Get All the Girls and Success Will Write Apocalypse Across The Sky.

Thrash & Burn European Tour Organizer Mike Mowery said, “Following the overwhelming success of the Thrash & Burn Tour in the USA last summer, it was only a matter of time before we decided to launch the branded tour in Europe. Just as we did with the inaugural run in the USA last summer, our goal for the European tour is to provide an inexpensive day of metal, thrash and punk.

Darkest Hour’s unofficial moniker 'Live To Thrash, Thrash To Live' made them a perfect fit to co-headline the tour. Guitarist Mike Schleibaum had this to say: “Darkest Hour is excited to co-headline this year’s inaugural Thrash & Burn European Tour. Touring with younger bands has always been something we have been about. It's a good way to keep metal evolving and progressing.

We are stoked to be able to tour along with good friends Bleeding Through and of course, we look forward to hanging and partying with all of our older European friends and the new friends we will soon make!”

Darkest Hour has not been in Europe since September of 2007, when they were the main support for As I Lay Dying. This will be the band’s first and only European Tour headlining on their 'Deliver Us' Album (2007 – Victory Records).

Bleeding Through’s Brandan Schieppati echoed Darkest Hour’s sentiments: "We are really happy to be returning to Europe and co-headlining with our friends in Darkest Hour on the excellent Thrash & Burn European tour. We think the tour line-up is one that will blow people away.

Bleeding Through is fresh off the heels of a European tour supporting Bullet for My Valentine and Lacuna Coil. Like co-headliners Darkest Hour, Bleeding Through has toured Europe extensively. Last summer, the band performed on many of the larger festivals throughout Europe, including the Download Festival in the UK.

Beneath The Massacre and Carnifex are no strangers to Europe either. The former just completed a nearly sold-out run with Cryptopsy, while the latter just finished the Altamont Never Say Die Tour. Rounding out the bill are a few bands that European fans have been eagerly anticipating: Arsonists Get All The Girls, War From A Harlots Mouth, and Success Will Write Apocalypse Across The Sky.

Thrash & Burn European Tour Organizer Ivonne Davies-Kreye of Avocado Booking expressed excitement about the tour as well: “We’ve chosen a number of outstanding bands whose sounds and dynamics compliment each other very well, yet we’ve kept it diverse enough so there’s something for the shredders, the moshers and the scenesters alike. With yet another crushing line-up, we expect for the Thrash & Burn European Tour to be as successful as our other festival tour, Never Say Die! Audiences can look forward to a bill so devastating that any extreme music fan in and around Europe won't forget anytime soon.

”The Thrash & Burn European Tour will be presented by Imperial Clothing, an up-and-coming merchandise and clothing company with strong ties to the underground hardcore and metal community. Martin Böttcher from Imperial Clothing commented, "We are proud to be able to participate in the first run of the Thrash & Burn European tour. The roster kills and the kids will have the chance to enjoy an evening full of riffing, moshing, and grinding. Imperial Clothing will be present at every venue to have a party with all the fans. So be prepared for some surprises!"

December 17, 2008
Florida‘s Death-Grind machine, Success Will Write Apocalypse Across The Sky, have revealed the cover artwork of their recently completed forthcoming album, 'The Grand Partition and the Abrogation of Idolatry'. The Album was produced by legendary James Murphy, formerly guitarist of Death, Testament and Obituary. The album is due in March 2009. Check out the artwork below.

"Well everyone, the recording of the album has been completed and we in the S.W.W.A.A.T.S. camp couldn't be more excited! It has been a dream of mine and ours for many years to get to work on something as special as this, and now that the process has been completed, mixing and mastering started. Myself and the rest of the band are hungry for more!! So the next step is extensive touring in 2009 for this album and we can not wait, we have a strong feeling that the message we send out with this album is going to be heard loud and clear all over the world. It is a plea to humanity, so take that in to consideration when you open the booklet and read our lyrics. We do this for you, and our own sanity hahaha. See you on the road friends!"
