Commented BLOODY SIGN guitarist Kalevi Uibo: "We're very proud to announce that we'll tour in April in the Balkanic area/ Eastern Europe, some of the most brutal audiences in all of Europe. We toured there three years ago, and we have such great memories from the gigs and from the metal maniacs over there. We cannot wait to go back and play our guts out every night. The tour will cross countries like Bosnia, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Romania, Turkey and many more, and we'll destroy the stages with our great friends from the Bosnian band AGONIZE."

Incantation Drummer Sits Out Euro Tour

Due to some personal issues, Kyle Severn is unable to participate in his drum duties for the upcoming Clash of Demigods European tour in Oct./Nov. So the drums will be handled by Ilmar Uibo from the band Bloody Sign.

Kyle’s explanation:

My family was suddenly hit with the death of my Mother. She was very young and was a huge supporter of my metal lifestyle. She meant the world to me!

My Incantation family is very important to me, but my blood family needs me the most right now. I will return to my metal duties after Incantation finishes this European tour. I would like to thank Ilmar Uibo from Bloody Sign filling in on drums with such short notice. Hails to you brother!
