Australia's Be'lakor, which had previously canceled a run of European tour dates, has now issued the following update about newly scheduled shows in Europe:
"We are very excited to be playing these dates in Germany, Portugal and England. It’s been a long time coming, and after some recent setbacks with the cancellation of dates, we have relied on our fans in Europe to help us in finding these shows. We owe a great gratitude to everyone who e-mailed us suggesting venues and contacts. Whilst we obviously couldn’t make it to every country in the short space of time that we have on this tour, we hope that some of the fans in other countries who have been waiting to see us will also be able to make it to one of these shows."
The currently announced dates are as follows:
21.08.10 – Germany, Dinkelsbühl – Summer Breeze Festival
22.08.10 – Portugal, Porto – MetalPoint Club
27.08.10 – Portugal, Lisbon (Benavente) – Side B Lounge Live Club
29.08.10 – England, London – The Bull and Gate
30.08.10 (Bank Holiday) – England, Exeter The Cavern: 83-84 Queen St, Exeter. EX4 3RP.
Australia's Be'lakor has issued the following comments about canceling several of their upcoming European shows:
"As many people have noticed over the past few days, we have unfortunately been dropped from the 'Assault of the Carnivores Tour 2010' in Baroeg, Holland - due to the apparent difficulties of organizing shows around August. This has been especially bad news for Be'lakor, as the Baroeg show was part of a series of up to 10 shows that were being organized through an agent of a prominent American death metal band for the remainder of our European tour.
"We are now faced with the extremely disappointing situation of having had nearly all of our tour pulled from beneath us (with the exception of Summer Breeze). None of this has been within our control and, given how close we are to August, has left us with the very difficult task of trying to find replacement shows.
"As we are sure that any fellow travellers will appreciate, the costs of travelling from Australia to Europe - especially for a small band like ours - are considerable. For this reason, it is essential to us that we make the most of this opportunity and play as many shows as possible. Needless to say, we are very unhappy with how things have worked out. More...
Australia's Be'lakor has issued the following update about performing a send off show before embarking on a European tour:
"Before we head off for our European tour, we're playing one last massive show in Melbourne: Saturday, August 7th at The Espy. Make sure you come along - it will probably be our last show in Australia for some time, because after we return from Europe we'll be getting back into the process of song writing as we work on our third album. Hope to see you all there!"
The dates and venues of Be'lakor's European tour, which will kick off in August, will be announced as they are made available.
Australia's Be'lakor has issued the following update about their upcoming tour dates with Turisas:
"Hey everyone, as most of you hopefully know, there has been a change for the Turisas tour. We are still supporting Turisas for their Aussie tour, however, as we announced recently, the Brisbane date (Friday May 21st) has been canceled. (For some reason, despite the fact that we have deleted this show from our tour calender on Myspace, it is still showing up on our page - please IGNORE this date). The problems with the tour were a result of Just Say Rock pulling out of their role as the event promoter/organizer.
"Luckily, Soundwave Touring has taken over the tour - but the Brisbance date has been dropped (this was not our call of course). So, apologies to all Brisbane-based fans. The following dates are still correct: SYDNEY Saturday 22nd May - The Factory Theatre (All Ages), MELBOURNE Sunday 23rd May - Billboard the Venue."
Australia's Be'lakor has issued the following statement about performing at the Summer Breeze festival and planning more European tour dates:
"Yes, it's finally happening. Be'lakor is coming to Europe! We're honoured to have been selected to play at Germany's massive Summer Breeze Festival in August of this year. Of course, more dates around Europe will be announced soon! Thanks to all the fans who have supported us for so long, and waited for us to get over to Europe to play. We can't wait."

What is essentially our first international support slot, we are very excited to be playing with Turisas and heading back to Brisbane and Sydney (with the final show in Melbourne) over one packed weekend in May. We will update the details under the gigs section on MySpace so stay tuned. If you live in or around any of these cities, come show some support and enjoy the gigs!"

FESTIVAL DE LA GRENOUILLE (Festival of the Frog), brings together eight of Melbourne’s leading metal bands, for a night of metal across two stages. The event, supported by both MetalObsession.net and OzProg, is only $15 and takes place at Melbourne's Corner Hotel on July 31, 2009.
Melbourne band Ne Obliviscaris acquired a new lead guitarist, Benjamin Baret, from France in August, 2008. And with his current visa expiring this August, Benjamin’s main hope of staying in Australia long term is a "Distinguished Talent" visa that would extend his stay in Australia at least another 4 years. The only catch, is that it costs more money to apply than he or the band has, (typical broke metal musicians!) and so this amazing line-up has been put together to raise the money for Benjamin’s visa, to help keep him in Australia long term; to help "keep a frog an Aussie."
As well as the amazing line-up of Eyefear, Ne Obliviscaris, Alarum, Be’lakor, The Ocularis Infernum, In Malice’s Wake and A Million Dead Birds Laughing, Festival De La Grenouille also marks the live debut of a new tech/death band, Primordial Space, featuring Benjamin Baret (guitar) and Brendan Brown (bass) from Ne Obliviscaris and brothers Miles and Glenn Krenzin (drums and guitar respectively).
The Festival De La Grenouille (Festival of the Frog) will take place on July 31st at the Corner Hotel in Melbourne, Australia. The currently confirmed line-up for the festival will be as follows:
The Ocularis Infernum
In Malice's Wake
A Million Dead Birds Laughing

The bands already on the roster are excellent, and we feel that as a label, Descent offers us great support and the freedom to continue making the music that we're so passionate about.
