All the rest about disturbances and stories about the band you can read at another place and would go beyond the scope of this note.

Nile’s first big US tour in support of their latest album, “Those Whom The Gods Detest,” rolled its way through Philly on January 17th. Immolation, Krisiun, and Dreaming Dead provided support, ensuring that a night of brutal death metal was on the menu. A dreary, drizzle-soaked night made for a perfect accompaniment to the reign of terror that was on display from the time the doors of the Trocadero opened to the bitter end. While the lack of Abigail Williams, who had to drop off the tour due to a band injury, was disappointing, the rest of the bands held their own and put on a show that left many necks aching from all the headbanging going on.

Brazilian metal band Krisiun is currently streaming an unreleased track online titled "Infested Waters." The song can be heard on the band's official MySpace page.
On Tuesday April 7th, 2009 I went to BBKings in New York City to see Destruction perform, with Krisiun and Mantic Ritual as support, at their last show on tour. As I walked into the venue, I found that it was practically empty. The emptiness of the venue was a bit disappointing for such a popular 80s thrash metal band. I also noticed the awesome equipment on stage: Ampeg bass amp stacks and Engl guitar amp half stacks. Both have to be my favorite brands for bass and guitar amps respectively. Another thing I saw was that there was only one set of gear on stage. It is rare that I see a band nice enough to lend their gear out to the openers. Short changeovers between bands are always a good thing. More...

German thrash metal legends Destruction are currently touring North America along with Krisiun and Mantic Ritual. The band has unfortunately had to announce however, that their show in Calgary, Alberta, Canada will not go ahead as planned. A message from the band reads as follows:
"The Calgary show is cancelled due the lack of equipment. First of all the show got moved from the Warehouse to the Underground! No agreement with the band, no PA, no lights! The band is disappointed and really sorry about that situation, as everybody tried to find a solution to make the show happen. Sorry folks but without equipment a metal concert is not possible."
