After their successful North American tour and a celebrated performance at Neurotic Deathfest, DEATH: DTA will tour Europe for the first time. The DEATH line up will consist of Sean Reinert (Cynic) – drums, Paul Masvidal (Cynic) – guitar, Steve DiGiorgio (Autopsy, Testament, Iced Earth) – bass and Max Phelps (Cynic) – guitar & vocals. The set list will feature most of the songs from the Human album plus other DEATH classics.
In 1998, The Sound Of Perseverance, the very last studio album of progressive death metal icons DEATH from Florida, saw the light of day. In 2001 their charismatic band leader, guitar god and sound pioneer Chuck Schuldiner tragically passed away. Many years later, the towering monolith of Chuck and DEATH’s testimony hasn’t even faintly started to crumble, cult albums such as Leprosy (1988) or Symbolic (1995) remain untouchable.
Direct support will come from German tech death heroes OBSCURA who’s singer/guitarist Steffen Kummerer was asked to be vocalist on the first Death-tribute shows in 2012, but couldn’t take the job due to visa-issues. Also on the tour will be DARKRISE.
