Backing the assault is Colombian/USA black metal rising demons INQUISITION. Continuing the event in fashion is Italy’s gothic melodic sensation THE FORESHADOWING, and to start up the fire, introducing Sweden’s dark rock / metal band DEATH WOLF (featuring MARDUK members).
“It’s with great delight that we return to your shores again in support of our latest album ‘Serpent Sermon’”, adds Morgan from Marduk. “We look forward to march across the continent delivering the gospel of the worm. No mercy will be given!!”
Moonspell’s Fernando Ribeiro also comments: “The time for a North American tour is finally up and we are proud to return overseas to bring you all the darkened magic of our Portuguese legend and sound, a rebellion made of passion and communion with the fans. We invite you all to witness the charm and power of ‘Alpha Noir’ and ‘Omega White’ but also to celebrate with us our Twentieth anniversary as a band and time travel with us to ‘Wolfheart,’ ‘Irreligious’ and songs never played before in the American territory. The time has come to gather the pack, let the games begin!!!”
“Inquisition is pleased to accept the invitation for a return to a second North American tour and evoke the magic of our majesty”, adds Dagon from Inquisition. “We hope to see those who missed us recently and those loyal supporters who choose to return. This shall be our final full North American tour until the new album is released in late 2013″.
Alex from The Foreshadowing also comments: “It will be our first time in North America and we are very proud to hit the road with such great bands!!! Are you ready to be part of the Second World?”
“Right upon the release of our second album we will be marching across the States on this killer tour, a hard hitting line up of bands ready to bring darkness over the continent”, adds Morgan while introducing Death Wolf. “It’s the first proper tour Death Wolf is doing and soon, the march of the Death Wolf will begin! The circle of abomination is coming…”
