Immolation Comments On Canceled Show

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!"

Napalm Death Announces European Tour

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 tour dates are as follows: More...

"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!"

Nile Saved By Immolation Vocalist

Nile has issued the following statement about Immolation vocalist Ross Dolan coming to their rescue when their tour bus driver left unexpectedly:

"So what do you do when your bus driver decides to hit the road? (...and not in a good way). Well, this very thing happened this past Saturday when Nile's tour bus driver couldn't make it to the Gallup, NM show due to 'certain circumstances' which caused Nile and their bus to be stranded at some random truck stop in the middle of the desert.

"It just so happens that the Immolation and Krisiun bus was stopped at the same place, and at the same time (weird). So, after a couple of hours of trying to find a solution, all options were exhausted, and Nile's tour manager, Punchy, went to tell the Immolation and Krisiun guys that Nile wasn't going to be able to make it to the show, because we had no available driver.

"Turns out, Ross has a Class B license, and that makes him legal to drive a bus. So, he got out of bed and drove the last four hours to the gig! So what's the moral of the story? If we can work miracles and pull this type of stuff off at the last minute to make it to one of our gigs, then this means that you should have no excuse on why you should miss one of our shows!"

Nile And Immolation Tear Down The Trocadero

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.

Immolation Posts New Song, "The Purge," Online

New York based death metal band IMMOLATION has posted a brand new song called "The Purge" on their MySpace page.

Ross Dolan comments, "It was a unanimous decision to choose 'The Purge' as the first song off of 'Majesty and Decay' to debut to the world. It is the first song on the record and we think it really sets the tone for the rest of the album. 'The Purge' is an extremely aggressive and angry song that really has so many elements to it, and it is the perfect opening track as well because it takes the listener through some of the many moods and feelings contained within the album. It is a very extreme song in many ways and showcases all of the classic IMMOLATIONN elements. Lyrically the song takes the concept we started developing on 'World Agony' and expands upon it, taking it to the next level in a very extreme way. We really liked the idea behind "World Agony" and wanted to expand upon it, so when we began the process of writing lyrics for the new record while in the studio, I had the title and a loose concept for 'The Purge' and we expanded upon it. 'The Purge' is a condemning song that takes an ugly look at mankind and forces us to open our eyes and accept responsibility for our actions. It is a very dark song with lots of emotion that I think will grab the listener right from the opening notes."

The song comes off the bands upcoming record "Majesty And Decay" which will be released on March 5, 2010 via Nuclear Blast Records.
