DEATH - DTA Tribute Tour Coming To Europe In November

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's and DEATH's testimony hasn't even faintly started to crumble, cult albums such as Leprosy (1988) or Symbolic (1995) remain untouchable.

Whilst older generations have their (live) memories to treasure, there's a big bunch of younger death metal freaks who could get in touch with DEATH only via DVD or YouTube - it's about time to change this! Earlier this year, the "DTA" tribute tour excited thousands of American fans, and in November 2013 this awesome trek will finally make it to Europe.

The DEATH line-up consists of Human legends Sean Reinert (drums), Paul Masvidal (guitars) and Steve DiGiorgio (bass). Max Phelps, some of you will have seen him performing live with CYNIC, will step in Chuck's footsteps - and this amazing tribute line-up will perform songs from every DEATH era.

Supporting them will be German tech death crew OBSCURA who have been massively influenced by DEATH themselves and are currently working on the follow-up to 2011's Omnivium. Swiss act DARKRISE will also be part of the tour, the brutal death metal groove monsters recently thrilled with Realeyes.

FINAL DEPRAVITY Present First 'Making Of' Video For New Album

German Ruhr Area thrashers FINAL DEPRAVITY have presented the first part of the 'Making of' video trailer for their upcoming new album, Thrash Is Just The Beginning.

The clip features previously unreleased audio samples of the album title track, behind-the-scenes footage from the recording sessions and can be seen below.

Thrash Is Just The Beginning has been produced by Sascha Risseler and mastered by Dennis Koehne (a.o. Sodom, Exumer, The Very End). The album artwork and band photography come from the renowned design studio Killustrations (a.o. Dew-Scented, Nervecell, Hackneyed, The Very End), run by German artist Bjoern Goosses.

The 'Making Of' video trailer has been created by Carsten Loer for Cyphers X.

FINAL DEPRAVITY from the Ruhr Area of Germany (known as the homebase of legends like Kreator & Sodom and most vital center of today's German metal scene) have been founded in December 2007.

The band came up with a highly praised 3-track demo in 2008 and shared stages with acts like Sodom, Legion Of The Damned, Artillery and The Very End since then.

The debut album, Nightmare 13, has been released in October 2010. Due to the bankruptcy of Twilight Distribution the album download is currently not available, but Nightmare 13 can be streamed in its entirety via SoundCloud.

FINAL DEPRAVITY played more than 70 live shows since the album release with the likes of e.g. Arch Enemy, Accu§er and Warrant. The band supported Onslaught and Suidakra on the Scream For Violence European Tour (20 shows) and performed at Metalfest Germany in 2011.

In June 2012, FINAL DEPRAVITY have announced Jerome Reil (son of Kreator drummer Jürgen "Ventor" Reil) as their new drummer.
