Incantation Mainman Comments On Russian Tour

INCANTATION mainman John McEntee has issued the following update:

"We just got back from the Flaming Arts Fest Tour 2007. This was our first time ever performing in Russia. We played along side are long time friends in VADER, KRISIUN, ROTTING CHRIST along with some cool guys from the bands AMENTI and RIUL DOAMNEI."

"I must admit I didn't know a lot about the Russian death metal scene before the tour, but I have to say it was over the top! We packed venues every night! The crowds were totally sick some if the craziest we have played for."

"We were pretty busy traveling most of the time, but we did get time to visit Red Square. That was really cool, growing up in the time of the Cold War it was amazing to get to visit and have some great gigs in a country that was once unheard of for a American band to visit. Also at the Moscow show I did an interview for the biggest metal video TV show in Russia. So that was a great honor."

"On the Flaming Arts Festivals we also played our first time in Belarus. That was a phenomenal gig! The show was by far sold out and the death bangers were totally sick. After the show we did a interview for the legendary Minsk radio show metal 'Massa Brutto'. Alex, the host, was a really cool guy — a true metal warrior."

"I want to thank Massive Music and Flaming Arts Productions along with everyone that made the fest tour happen. We are also honored to have gotten the opportunity to play for all our new and old school Russian fans alike, we look forward to returning again sometime. Next time with a headlining set."

Why is it that these guys are from the states yet hardly ever tour the states? More money overseas 'n stuff?
