Belphegor Cancels North American Tour

Due to a family emergency, Austria’s diabolical death / black metal band Belphegor has been forced to cancel the planned headlining North American “Voices From The Dark” tour with Rotting Christ, Beheaded, and Svart Crown.

The tour was scheduled to launch September 24th in New York City. Belphegor front man & guitarist Helmuth Lehner issued the following statement:

"After fighting many months now (the last 4 months have been terrible), my mother is at the end. Her body is decaying more and more and will not survive the next weeks (maybe days) or will fall in coma soon. I will not risk being away at this time."

None of the other bands have issued a statement yet, so it's unclear if they will continue the tour or if the entire trek is off with the headlining band cancelling.

Update: Rotting Christ has now confirmed the tour is fully cancelled, stating: "As Rotting Christ we have no other choice than supporting Helmuth's family situation and to express simultaneously our deep disappointment with the fact that we will not meet our Northern American Metal brothers as we promised them with this tour. We promise though that we will work our asses off to be back in your land ASAP so stay tuned for updates." More...

Belphegor Headed To North America

The diabolical death/black metal band Belphegor will return to North American shores with a headlining tour this Fall.

Joining the raid of conquest and blasphemy, dubbed the “Voices From The Dark” tour 2014, is a cornucopia of the finest metal miscreants the world has to offer.

Greek outfit Rotting Christ as well as Beheaded from Malta and Svart Crown from France will be supporting on the trek.

“Belphegor is still brutal and consistent, rolling in worldwide like a wartime tank,” comments Belphegor frontman Helmuth Lehner. “It will be a pleasure to conquer the states again. On 'Conjuring The Dead' we celebrate diabolical death musick with one of our most brutal offerings yet. Join the Belphegor rituals and go to hell with us.”

The band's upcoming album "Conjuring The Dead" (reviewed here) is due out on August 5th (North America), August 8th (EU/Brazil/Japan), and August 11th (UK/FR) via Nuclear Blast. Catch the band live on these dates: More...

Brutal Truth To Play Obscene Extreme Fest

The Obscene Extreme festival will be taking place from July 16th - 20th, with ticket information available at this location. Now the festival has announced several new additions to the lineup, including Brutal Truth and Morgoth. The festival organizers comment:

"Few bands represent Obscene Extreme as fully as US grind legends Brutal Truth – they've weathered break-ups and line-up changes, but never once have they halted in their mission to keep pushing the bleeding edge of grindcore.

"Never complacent, each steamroller of Brutal Truth album has furthered their sound and moved the goalposts for the whole damn genre in the process. Now bassist, founding member and extreme metal champion Dan Lilker approaches his 50th birthday, he's stepping back from music and his baby - Brutal Truth - will be no more.

"When the band returned in 2006, it was Obscene Extreme the following year that welcomed them back as very personification of the festival. Now, seven years later we'll bid them farewell with one final performance. Obscene Extreme 2014 – this promises to be unforgettable!!!

"Another band that will be stepping out onto the Obscene Extreme stage this year will be fathers of the German death metal scene, the mighty Morgoth. Originally split in 1998 after only three albums - the coffin-lid hammering of 1991's ‘Cursed,’ 1993's forward-thinking ‘Odium’ and their most divisive albums ever, 1995's post-punk ‘Feel Sorry For The Fanatic.’ More...

Beheaded Splits With Drummer

Malta death metal band Beheaded has issued the following announcement about parting ways with the group's drummer:

"It is with a heavy heart today that we announce the departure of our brother drummer Chris Brincat from Beheaded after 23 years.

"Chris was one of the founding members of Beheaded back in 1991 and not only his drumming skills have shaped and gave an identity to the Beheaded sound throughout the years but his contribution, dedication, charisma and character brought something much more special to the band and every member that is or has formed part of it.

"All of us in Beheaded would like to wish Chris all the best for his present and future endevours. We will be announcing Beheaded's new drummer tomorrow."

Chris Brincat also comments: 'Due to unforeseen circumstances I can no longer dedicate time to the band and the last thing I want is to keep Beheaded from moving to the next step. I wish my brothers in Beheaded all the best and a big horns up to all our followers for their support throughout these years." More...

Beheaded Cancel Neurotic Deathfest Appearance

BEHEADED has cancelled its appearance at the the 2007 edition of the Neurotic Deathfest, set to take place May 11-12 at the Dynamo Club in Eindhoven, Netherlands. The festival organizers have issued the following statement on the matter:

"Unfortunately we were informed that BEHEADED will not be participating in this year's Neurotic Deathfest after breaking earlier confirmed agreements. We briefly tried to salvage this situation by upgrading the initially agreed conditions, but this has also been rejected by the band. We're just as disappointed as all of you who wanted to see the band. Luckily we found a worthy replacement in Dutch death metal pride PROSTITUTE DISFIGUREMENT, who have agreed to take a day off from their studio session to perform on this year's Neurotic Deathfest. Due to this the running order is slightly changed as well."

The 2007 edition of the Neurotic Deathfest will include appearances by VITAL REMAINS, IMMOLATION, KRISIUN and GRAVE, among many others.
