Montreal’s BENEATH THE MASSACRE has just completed the band’s first ever European tour alongside Despised Icon and Misery Index. Frontman Elliot Desgagnes offers an update on the band: “So we just did our last show in Europe and we'd like to thank everyone that came to the shows, sang along, headbanged and had beers with us! We’ll be back soon enough! We of course would like to thank our bros in/with Despised Icon, Misery Index, Man Must Die and Annotation of an Autopsy for the good times. We are now getting ready for the headline tour in the US – can’t wait!”

BENEATH THE MASSACRE will depart on that headlining tour of the US with support from See You Next Tuesday, Born of Osiris and The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza. The full-length, ‘Mechanics of Dysfunction,’ saw a February 2007 release and has since sent the band out on the road across North America alongside Ion Dissonance, the Summer Slaughter tour with Necrophagist and Cattle Decapitation, and a tour with labelmates Through The Eyes of the Dead and As Blood Runs Black. The 10 new tracks were recorded and produced by Yannick St-Ammand (Despised Icon, Neuraxis), mixed by Pierre Rémillard (Cryptopsy,Krisiun) and mastered by Alan Douches (Dillinger Escape Plan, Shadows Fall) and ‘Mechanics of Dysfunction’ is the full-length follow-up to 2005’s highly praised five-track ‘Evidence of Inequity’ EP.

No, it is not deathbringer haha. I might rip off Dark Tranquillity's song titles for user names but not band names.

My band's name is Terror By the Lake. If you check our space we don't have the best quality recordings up but new ones will be coming hopefully by April.
