Just in case you missed the announcement last week Maltese Death Metal act Abysmal Torment announced they will be heading back to the UK in September. Those of you who have caught this dual vocal act will know how brutal they are live, and for those of you who haven't yet caught their live act now is your chance. Since their last visit they have hit so many european festivals and we for one are very excited they are coming back to our shores.
This is a rolling joint headline tour with Greek act Inveracity who have been out of action whilst serving the mandatory military service but are now back with new material and heading to the UK for the first time since 2008.
Support on the tour comes from...
Tasmanian tech-death metallers Psycroptic have just announced they are heading over from Australia for a european tour that includes several dates in the the UK. The tour support comes from Italians Hour Of Penance and the UK's very own Dyscarnate. Hour of Penance guitarist Giulio Moschini commented: “We’re extremely happy to tour again with our friends in Psycroptic and Dyscarnate and most of all to play again in Europe after the successful tour we did with Cannibal Corpse, Devildriver and The Black Dahlia Murder in February. For the first time, Hour of Penance will also play in Ireland! Be there!“
The tour hits the UK for 5 dates including dates outside England in Ireland, Scotland and Wales (promoters please take note, metallers don't just live in London!!)
