Sworn Enemy Comments On Upcoming Tours
April 10, 2008
New York's Sworn Enemy will continue to bring the metal to the masses via a slew of North American touring activity to support the release of their new album 'Maniacal'. Having toured Europe, Japan and the U.S. in recent weeks, they will continue their unrelenting schedule on April 14th with a series of headlining dates leading them immediately into a tour with labemates Divine Heresy. From A Second Story Window (Blackmarket/Metal Blade), With Blood Comes Cleansing (Victory) and Dance Club Massacre (Blackmarket/Metal Blade) round out the bill.

Comments guitarist Lorenzo Antonucci: “We just finished the Firestorm Fest with Earth Crisis, Terror and Shai Hulud, and though it was an honor to be part of such an amazing tour, we can't wait to bang our heads with Divine Heresy. This tour is going to be a rager, and we are very happy to be a part of it.”

Sworn Enemy will then spend May supporting Dying Fetus, further proving just how diverse their live show is and that they can easily stand tall and win over any crowd. Origin and Thy Will Be Done will be opening all of these shows.

“People sometimes forget that we've toured with heavy bands like Slayer, Cradle of Filth and Six Feet Under," Antonucci says. "Our best tours have always been with metal bands, and we're excited to once again be the underdog. We appreciate having the opportunity to show people just how heavy we can be. It's time to rage!”

A video for “A Place of Solace,” the first single from 'Maniacal', was recently shot by acclaimed director David Brodsky (GWAR, The Red Chord). Check it out below.

Sworn Enemy Posts Video Online, Announces Spring Tour
March 24, 2008
New York's Sworn Enemy recently annihilated the masses across North America with Earth Crisis and Terror and will continue their unrelenting schedule this April as direct support to labemates Divine Heresy. From A Second Story Window (Blackmarket/Metal Blade), With Blood Comes Cleansing (Victory) and Dance Club Massacre (Blackmarket/Metal Blade) round out the bill.

A video for “A Place of Solace,” the first single from the new album 'Maniacal', was recently shot by acclaimed director David Brodsky (GWAR, The Red Chord). The video made its exclusive online debut through the Headbangers Ball Blog today and premiered on MTV2 this past Saturday as well. Sal (vocals) states: “We hooked up with the amazing director David Brodsky (GWAR, The Red Chord) for this video and are stoked with the end result. The location was an abandoned psychiatric ward, so I guess you can say it pretty much fit what we were looking for. The storyline is loosely based on a father and the son that have done wrong to each other, and both, in order to achieve their ‘solace,’ believe that they’d be better off without the other… rightly or wrongly. We hope you enjoy the madness.”

Check out the video below.

Sworn Enemy have returned with 'Maniacal', their most crushing offering to date. Featuring a newly reinvigorated lineup and new home at Century Media, this 10-track offering takes the group’s sound to new heights, which sees them embracing a thrashier edge and pummeling the listener with unrivaled aggression.

Biography
HOME TOWN: Albany, GA
MEMBERS:
Dean Atkinson - Vocals
Jeremy Sims - Guitar
Scott Erickson - Guitar
Dennis Frazier - Bass
Matt Fidler - Drums

WITH BLOOD COMES CLEANSING leaves listeners in a state of sheer excruciating agony with their blistering guitar riffs, pummeling crush parts, and brutally vivid christian lyrics. While laying their unique spin of death metal on the framework of a musical genre 20+ years in the making the band brings forth a sound making them a force to be reckoned with.

Following the release of their debut full-length, GOLGOTHA, in 2006 on Blood & Ink Records the band has acquired a new face, with returning vocalist Dean Atkinson, bassist Dennis Frazier, and Matt Fidler on the skins. The three join ranks with guitarists Scott Erickson and Jeremy Sims to solidify the new line-up. With fresh members and a debut album hot off the print WITH BLOOD COMES CLEANSING is prepared to release their gut-wrenching live performance upon the country city by city stage by stage.

Working alongside prodcer Chris Dowhan of Planet Red Studios (The Black Dahlia Murder, Winter Solstice, Spitfire) during the recording of GOLGOTHA, the band took head of the procession as the days of relentlessly heavy metal make their return. One can only ready themselves for the devouring massiveness that is, WITH BLOOD COMES CLEANSING
