The Austrian blackened/death metal machine, BELPHEGOR, will be returning to the US this February with ROTTING CHRIST, IMMOLATION and AVERSE SEFIRA for the “Lucifer Over North America” tour. Vocalist/guitarist, Helmuth, had to this to say about what could be the most blasphemous paring of bands in quite sometime:

“It’s an honor for us to return to US shores! The last two runs were beyond fucking amazing and we had such a good time there. Thanks to First Row Talent and Nuclear Blast Records for bringing BELPHEGOR over again. I'm sure this whole tour will exceed our expectations yet again. Hail Chaos - Hail Satan!”
