Lothloryen Announces "In the Name of Tolkien - Folk Metal Tour 2009"

The brazilian heavy/folk metal act LOTHLÖRYEN is preparing to hit the road with a tour to promote their new album, entitled "Some Ways Back No More," released in Brazil through Die Hard Records.

The tour, entitled "In The Name of Tolkien - Folk Metal Tour 2009", will begin in March and will be a true "bard's alliance" and will feature the support act SkaldicSoul, which will be promoting their album "Paths In The Highland," and also Blind Guardian Cover Union, a band formed by members of both bands with the vocalists Daniel Felipe and Rogério Malgor, who have a tone of voice similar to Hansi Kürsch.

About the tour, Leko Soares, Lothlöryen's guitarist, comments: "Everything began after our first show to promote "Some Ways..." last year, when we became friends of SkaldicSoul. The affinity of both bands and the love shared for Tolkien's works, folk metal, and Blind Guardian, made us to search the ways to make the project of a conceptual tour to work. We hope that the producers embrace the idea and help us to bring Tolkien and metal to many places as possible."

There are plans of including booths for RPG, mediaeval culture and local Tolkien communities on the shows. Those interested in booking tour dates should send an e-mail to bardsalliance@yahoo.com.br.

You can get information about Lothlöryen and check out their music on the band's MySpace page.
