Attention, heavy rockers, doomheads, retro aficionados, hippies or simply lovers of timeless rock music: rejoice! The european tour of ORCHID kicks off today!
ORCHID are more of a recent phenomenon: the fourpiece made quite a bunch of heads turn with their debut EP “Through the devil`s doorway” in 2009 before they firmly established themselves as the rightful heirs to BLACK SABBATH`s throne with their album “Capricorn” in 2011. Their second full-length album “The Mouths of Madness” is out now! ORCHID have been named „The best and most important doom band of the past five years“ by ROCK HARD Germany’s chief in editor Goetz Kuehnemund and BEHEMOTH’s legendary mainman Nergal stated „BLACK SABBATH should do an album like “The Mouths Of Madness”!“
Due to serious health issues WITCHCRAFT had to cancel their gigs on the planned tour with ORCHID. ORCHID and FREE FALL will still do the tour and TROUBLED HORSE with members from WITCHCRAFT will join them instead!
WITCHCRAFT comment on their facebook page: “We are sad to announce that due to serious health issues the upcoming tour has been cancelled. We are very sorry about this but hope you all understand that health always must come first.”
ORCHID, FREE FALL & TROUBLED HORSE live!
Presented by ROCK HARD, MUSIX, METALLIAN MAGAZINE (FR), ROCK HARD (IT), LA HEAVY (ESP), MARISKAL ROCK (ESP), NOIZELETTER, METALNEWS and BLAST!
