Impiety Drops Off Incantation Tour

Impiety has posted the following message online about dropping off the band's upcoming tour with Incantation:

"96 hours of trying to find a solution has come to an end. It's regretfully impossible. In the end Impiety cannot fulfill this European tour supporting Incantation due to a personal problem of Nizam's which we can't solve during this final weeks.

"We've tried to get a session guitar player, but time is not on our side and personally for me, it just wouldn't be as great. A new support band in replacement will be announced tomorrow. We wish the bands the very best on the Incantation Crusade of Vengeance Tour this November 8th til 23rd.

"And to all who await us, just exercise some patience til early 2014, when we return and bring the hammer down upon this politically retarded, godforsaken planet once again.

"We will announce all upcoming 2014 concerts this December - Burst Command til Death !!! - Later, Komrades!"

Incantation Comments On Live Dates

After a successful string of US dates, death metal legends Incantation are set to take their newest release, "Vanquish in Vengeance," to Europe for appearances in Paris, Switzerland and at the Neurotic Death Fest in Holland. Before heading across the pond, Incantation will make a stop in Miami, FL for a night of decimation with Hibernus Mortis, Ulcer and Masticator. The band issued the following statement regarding its recent live activities:

"While the 'old world' awaits us in the near future, here stateside was a furious and ruthless number of shows. Ohio, Texas and New York mark the first live performances for our new 'Vanquish in Vengeance' album. The staff of the Shrunken Head in Columbus made things go smoothly while the sick as fuck bands we had the pleasure of jamming with made it all the more awesome. Many hails to Soulless and The Council Beneath the Sea for their help and absolutely shredding. And of course everyone who attended the slaughter that night!

Next was Houston to headline the Masters of Death fest. Been many years since the bands' return. The energy was unreal when the stage was pummeled by the likes of our brothers in Master, HOD, La Sanche, and Nodens. Thanks and greetings to all our old friends and the help they provided that made the show a true honor to be part of. Lastly was a return to NY at the St. Vitus club in Brooklyn. Few words can capture what it means to see a metal bar such as theirs overflowing with metal heathens. Fuckin' sick! So, why not a sold out show with the likes of such bands as Evoken, Derketa, and Funerus. If it weren't for their support a lot would not have been possible. Brutal crowd, great staff and pure death metal!

With only a few weeks away we can no longer hold back our anticipation. Our crusade of blackened death for the 'Vanquish in Vengeance' album will now poison the shores of Europe once again. A few battles planed in France, Switzerland with our brothers in Supreme Lord! Then back to Tilburg, Holland for the Neurotic Deathfest! With so many hails in waiting to all of whom we'll reunite, and the greetings in infernal brotherhood to those whom we shall meet.

The abyss beckons us to battle! This time it's to the south, to Miami. We're really anxious to bring our 'Vengeance' to an area we've not returned to in many years. Hails to Hibernus Mortis, Ulcer and Masticator who will share in our assault. Rally to the blasphemy of unholy old school death metal, we look forward to seeing you heathens there. You've been warned!"

INCANTATION Live:

April 27th 2013 Miami, FL, @ Churchill's Pub

2.05.2013 Paris, France @ Le Gibus
3.05.2013 Winterthur, Switzerland @ Gaswerk
5.05.2013 Tilburg, Netherlands @ Neurotic Deathfest
