The inaugural Decibel Magazine tour kicks off in a mere eight days in Columbus, OH. It wasn't too late, however, for the venue owners to prohibit the bands from appearing at The Brewmaster's Gate. Behemoth, Watain, The Devil's Blood, and In Solitude are being forbidden from playing at the venue because of religious conflicts with the venue owners. These bands are no strangers to this type of treatment, and a new venue has already been confirmed. The Columbus, OH show will now be at Al Rosa. Tickets for this show are still available and can be purchased here.
Behemoth's front man, Nergal, comments further: "Wow, big motherfuckin' WOW! We are facing a legendary moment: Amerika, the land of the free, is banning Behemoth coz of religious beliefs. The madness starts in Ohio, but of korz we are playing anyway. Nothing can stop us now. God, please save me from this freedom…"
Beginning on April 11th and laying waste through a gargantuan 26-date run, the Decibel Magazine Tour (presented by Metal Blade Records, IndieMerchStore.com, FYE, ESP Guitars and Good Fight Entertainment) not only offers four diverse European artists hand-picked by the magazine, but doubles as Behemoth's first U.S. tour since vocalist/guitarist Adam "Nergal" Darski's well-documented battle with—and triumph over—leukemia. Dates are as follows: More...
Dutch occult rockers The Devil's Blood are gearing up for a near month-long run of North American dates on the forthcoming Decibel Magazine Tour alongside Behemoth, Watain and In Solitude. The band will be touring in support of "The Thousandfold Epicentre" (reviewed here) released earlier this year via Metal Blade Records.
Comments founder and band leader SL: “The Devil's Blood is proud and extremely eager to travel the New World alongside some of the world’s most dedicated metal bands. Dedicated not to some pathetic notion of ‘scene’ or ‘unity’ but to a clear, totally individual, spiritual path that although not understood by most is perhaps the most valid and urgent one available for wandering feet to travel in the twilight of the Iron Age. We share many opinions and disagree on many more, yet our offerings all speak of that great mystery which we all aspire to with passion and fury. Praise be to all those who accompany us on this particular path.”

German thrash legends Sodom announced that the Winterfire Festival scheduled for March 3, 2012 in Osnabrück, Germany (Eventhalle Neulandstr. 26 - ex-Ballroom/ex-NB) has been cancelled by the promoter. In a post on Facebook, the band stated:
"Unfortunately we reveived the news from the local promoter that the Winterfire Festival 2012 is cancelled."
The event was scheduled to include performances by: Sodom, Powerwolf, In Solitude, Onslaught, Accuser, Portrait, Bitter Piece.
In other Sodom news, the band is currently rehearsing and writing material for the follow up to "In War and Pieces" for a summer 2012 release, which coincides with the band's 30th Anniversary.
Heavy Metal Home TV has posted a new 17 minute video interview online with In Solitude, which was conducted during the Metal Forces Festival. Check out the footage below. In Solitude will also be hitting the road in April with Behemoth, Watain, and the Devil's Blood for a new tour. Check out full details here.
As previously announced, Swedish black metal miscreants Watain will take part in the inaugural Decibel Magazine Tour alongside Behemoth, The Devil’s Blood, and In Solitude. The live ceremonies will begin on April 11th in Ohio and bloody 26 stages including a stop in Oklahoma City where the trek will merge with the U.S. Torture Tour featuring Cannibal Corpse, Exhumed, Abysmal Dawn, and Arkaik for an evening of audio devastation.
Pleased to take part in the event, frontman Erik Danielsson comments: “We were originally meant to spend this year in the shadows, focusing inwards and on the new material we have compiled during the years since Lawless Darkness was released. This tour however was a bit too good to say no to. It is so seldom these days that someone actually managed to put together a descent tour package, which Decibel sure has managed to do this time. A ‘clash of the titans’ indeed! And considering the other bands on the tour, I can just imagine our management and the promotors biting their fingernails in anxiety and horror, waiting for the first arson or murder report from the road.
"Touring the States is always inspirational; there is always lots of emotion, anger, debauchery, decadence and a general feeling of lawlessness in the air, so I am sure this tour will nourish the writing process to a certain extent as well. A rich and fertile foundation of harsh physical and emotional experience has always played a big role in Watain writing new material, and this tour will for sure contribute to that. We will aim to make it interesting and memorable enough to do so.”

You can also check out footage of In Solitude making its debut U.S. performance at the Maryland Deathfest by heading over to this location.
The ninth annual edition of the Maryland Deathfest has grown into a four day affair, spanning Thursday night, Friday, Saturday and Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. Despite a last minute scare with Sonar possibly closing down, the even took place at Sonar, with the outdoor stages at either end of a closed off Saratoga Street.
This year, Metalunderground.com writer Emily Hingle (aka Buick McKane) was on hand for the entire festival (you can read her reports from day 1 and day 2) and Doug Gibson (aka deathbringer) was present on Saturday.
After an adventurous drive around the venue a few times trying to figure out how to reach the parking lot with Saratoga Street closed off, I finally arrived in time to see Creative Waste’s set. Sonar is a dark venue at any time, but entering from the afternoon sunlight, it seemed pitch black and took a few minutes to adjust.
Creative Waste took the stage and their sound was painfully loud. And they’re only a three-piece band, with a vocalist, guitarist and drummer - no bassist. The Saudi band described themselves as grindcore, but sounded more like a very hardcore influenced brand of metal. The music wasn’t my thing and the excessive volume that was not pleasant even with ear plugs sealed the deal for me.
Mammoth Grinder took the stage next, and I didn’t recognize them at first. The first few songs sounded a bit thin and reminded me of Prong, who while I enjoy, always had a weaker sound as a 3-piece. A few songs into their set, things got heavier and thrashier, evoking thoughts of Slayer. Then I recognized them as the band I saw at SXSW earlier this year. The remainder of their set was fast and heavy and made Mammoth Grinder the best band I witnessed on the inside stage that day. More...
Swedish metal band In Solitude made its debut U.S. performance this past weekend at Maryland Deathfest IX. With the new album, "The World.The Flesh.The Devil" (reviewed here) just released in North America via Metal Blade Records, vocalist Hornper stated on stage "let's make this our CD release party as well." The band played a number of songs off the new album, but Metal Underground.com caught one of In Solitude's older songs on video, which you can see below:
Revolver Magazine’s MetalKult has just posted the second half of In Solitude’s brand new album "The World. The Flesh. The Devil." online. You can now check out the full album, which will be streaming up to its release date (5/24), by heading over to this location.
Vocalist Hornper also previously commented on the album’s title: “We have chosen not to feed everyone our personal perception of the title and not to over-analyze it in interview, because we want the listeners themselves to rely on what the title evokes in them personally, and find their own way of perceiving it. The title and the specific song & poem that carries its name is very significant to what this album reveals and deals with, and if you read and listen to it carefully and close to heart; all answers shall come.”
The track listing is as follows:
1. The World, The Flesh, The Devil
2. We Were Never Here
3. Serpents Are Rising
4. Poisoned, Blessed, and Burned
6. To Her Darkness
7. Dance of the Adversary
8. On Burning Paths
