Hot News – Pain: Tarot Will Join European Tour!

2011. Júl 2, 7:59 :

Finnish metallers TAROT (featuring Marco Hietala of NIGHTWISH fame) will join the European tour of the Swedish industrial metallers PAIN, led by iconic producer/musician Peter Tägtgren.

Marco Hietala has issued the following statement:
TAROT has a great privilege and an opportunity to follow Saint Peter and his disciples in PAIN on their European tour through 5.10.-2.11. 2011. This is a last chance to see us promote the album "The Spell Of Iron MMXI", and play live before I get active with NIGHTWISH again. We´re gonna be warming up for PAIN, and the first half of the tour we´re going to be joined with our home town boys from TURMION KÄTILÖT. So far we´re planning to change the opener of the shows every other night. So if you want to be sure to see TAROT perform, you should come early enough. Otherwise you are in danger of losing a seriously enjoyable ass whipping. With all the possible bad but nice intentions! Marco Hietala.

Spanish Thrash Metal hopefuls ANGELUS APATRIDA have recently been presented as new endorser for Jackson Guitars, becoming the first Spanish band to ever be part of the Jackson Family.

“It’s a dream come true for us”, states guitarist Guillermo Izquierdo (pictured above!), “since I started playing guitar I knew that I wanted to play a Jackson. I just couldn’t imagine myself playing other guitars. All the bands I admired played them, and they look better than any other brands!”

This association between ANGELUS APATRIDA and Jackson marks another massive step forwards in the history of a band that in the last year has become used to break frontiers, not just in their homeland Spain, where they became a major success during 2010 topping all annual polls and entering the official sales charts, but also abroad. The awesome response their acclaimed latest album effort, “Clockwork”, the two European tours (with Skeletonwitch and Warbringer as well as being part of the “Bonecrusher Fest 2011” next to Dying Fetus, Keep Of Kalessin, Carnifex and many more) in support of the release as well as the honour of opening up for Slayer and Megadeth in Spain earlier this year have established the band within the Thrash Metal community as a strong and hopeful new force to be looking out for.

Sharing this split is a step forward to our future collaboration ..."
