Brazilian thrash metal legends Sepultura recently completed a tour of Europe which saw them appear in many venues, as well as several festivals. A message from the band reads as follows:

"First leg of European tour is over! 22 shows in a row! That was a first. We have never done so many shows with no days to rest in between.

"Of course we had some minor problems on the way. Jean got his thumbs busted and had to start playing with gloves on to protect the wound. In Prague, so cold! Derrick almost got a cold and lost his voice. And the problem with so many shows in a row is that you just don't have time to recover!

"Mr. Nick Harris (drummer, Armed For Apocalypse) had to wear a sign not to be mistaken with Derrick.

"We toured with 3 other bands: Armed For Apocalypse (California, USA), Hamlet (Spain) and Crowbar (New Orleans, USA). And we had a really good time with those guys! It's good whan you get to be on the road for so long with cool people. Makes everything easier.

"Ankara, Turkey - Last 2 shows of the first leg of the tour was in Istanbul and Ankara.

"In Istanbul, a 2000+ crowd in the cold to see Sepultura! Amazing show.

"In Ankara, a big festival with Kreator, Katatonia and other bands. Huge crowd to see Septultura!

"During the tour we broadcasted 3 of the shows live on Twitcam: Santiago de Compostela (Spain), Darmstadt (Germany) and Aarhus (Denmark). Two of them are still available on Twitcam: Santiago and Aarhus.

"We also have more than 600 pictures of the tour on Sepultura's Flickr page. Go check it out!

"We're working on some videos too, so keep checking!"

It'd be so cool if Crowbar comes back with them when they do the second leg of the European tour. Seeing both them and Seps on the same night would be a dream!

Why they gotta go and not play Norway? Helmet, Crowbar and Sepultura in one night? Bloody hell that would be awesome.
