German thrashers Exumer have been confirmed to appear at this year's Rock Hard Festival in Milan, Italy on September 15th, 2012. Also on the bill for the festival are Danish thrashers Artillery, who have just come off the co-headlining "South American Damnation" tour with Exumer through Argentina, Chile and Brazil.
Exumer's management is now working on on a European installment of the Exumer/Artillery package and are planning additional dates with both bands throughout Europe in September/October 2012.
Vocalist Mem V. Stein comments: "Our 'South American Damnation' tour was such a success for both bands, us and Artillery, that we did not hesitate to ask our management to replicate the package for Europe. This means that we have to put our North American dates, which were planned for the fall, on hold until spring 2013. There were no alternate time frames to bring both bands back out on the road and we didn't want to risk losing the opportunity altogether to bring the package to Europe."
The line-up for the Rock Hard Festival Italia 2012 features among others Marduk (SE), Bulldozer (IT), Artillery (DK), Exumer (DE), and Immolation (US). More...

It's always a honor to play for them, there are many true death metal Incantation supporters in Brazil."

Immolation has issued the following statement regarding the band's recently canceled show at Crazy Donkey:
"Unfortunately the show at Crazy Donkey had to be canceled due to the extreme weather expected in Farmingdale. Local authorities advised the club to stay closed as they were expecting extreme weather conditions throughout the night. We were all at the club for about 3 hours waiting to see if the show was going to happen or not. We found out at about 5:30 that it was definitely off.
"Ourselves and Vader, as well as the rest of the bands on the tour, were all ready to play and looking forward to the show. We all appreciate the support of the fans and appreciate everyone's effort to make it out to the club. The cancellation turned out to be so last minute that it was very difficult to get much word out. Thanks again for all the support and we look forward to playing in our hometown area of NY again very soon!"

British grindcore legends Napalm Death has announced that they will be embarking on a headlining tour of Europe this November, along with Macabre, Immolation and Waking The Cadaver. A message from vocalist Barney Greenway reads as follows:
"Having just returned from a string of dates in Thailand, Australia and Japan, it's a great feeling to know that Napalm is able to get out far and wide. Despite the fact that Napalm has trail-blazed across the world, I still hope next year there will be a few new places that we can set foot in where other bands just don't go. That's still a great source of excitement.
"Back in Europe, we're pleased to be coming back on tour again in November. There are old mates in Macabre and Immolation especially, and so it'll be good to round off the touring for Time Waits.. with a real blowout amongst friends. We'll be turning the setlist on it's head, I think, so expect a few things you haven't heard perhaps from the mists of time. Hopefully we'll know what the fuck we are doing when we come to play all that stuff.
"Which leads us into a new album, which we'll begin to piece together in January next year. Expect even more short, sharp shocks from what Shane and Mitch have told me so far on the music front, and lots of stop-start spontaneity. No finished lyrics as yet - I'm waiting with baited breath on the first nasty-sounding MP3 roughs so I can lock myself away and get going."

The Invisible Orange, the Vancouver based concert promotion group, has announced their cancellation of the upcoming Immolation concert that was set to take place in Vancouver on October 11th, 2010 at the Rickshaw Theater. Immolation was scheduled to perform alongside Abigail Williams, Vader, Pathology and Lecherous Nocturne.
The Invisible Orange commented by saying:
"The Invisible Orange needs to announce with regret that we will reduce the number of shows due to attendance being lower than needed to make the shows viable. We thank all fans that have supported the shows in this last year. Following discussions and analysis, the tour stop for Immolation in Vancouver will be cancelled and moved to Victoria. We apologize for any inconvenience. Tickets will be refunded through the same venue they were acquired whether it was through Ticketweb.ca, EnterTheVault.com or at Scrape Records. We want to take the opportunity to ask fans to keep supporting the remaining shows to ensure their viability and keep them happening in Vancouver. See you at the mosh pit!"
Immolation has yet to comment on the matter.
