That said let’s look at the latest invasion plans, I mean “touring plans” by Metal Blade Records recording artist Tyr!!!!

Metal Blade Records Presents: Behemoth “The Satanist” Live Video

If you’ve never witnessed the crushing brutality that is the band Behemoth, then you’re going to want to maximize this next video on your screen and indulge as Metal Blade Records presents the band doing their song “The Satanist” in concert. The clip hails from their forthcoming video and CD release “Messe Noire”. You’ve been warned.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I don’t have much to add here other than the fact that while this is a solid delivery and execution of the title track from their “The Satanist” album; there is truly no better way to experience Behemoth than with your own eyes in a club where they might be playing. I wouldn’t recommend that the newbies stand too close to the stage since the crowd surfing can get out of hand, but standing on the periphery of it all or viewing down from up above is worth doing. I’ve been seeing Behemoth in concert since 2004 unless I am off a year and its always an experience that leaves me exhausted but wanting more. I’ve even been fortunate enough to have met the guys over the years and to have covered their work here on the website. Just click THIS LINK to open up any posts that refer to them. You’ll find a little bit of everything by doing that and most posts have links to Amazon.com purchase points to spark your grabbing the credit card. Currently, Behemoth is one of the many bands that are supporting the final tour by Slayer. They are on the first leg and if you’ve interest in catching them you better act fast or risk missing out on it. “Messe Noire” will hit the streets in April.

There seem to be a lot of tours being announced and this next one to be shared with the readership is about the venerable Armored Saint. Check out the full press release down below along with the dates. I’ll close up with some editorial afterward.

The Press Release:
This summer, ARMORED SAINT will embark on a North American tour commemorating their classic Symbol Of Salvation full-length. On this special thirteen-date run, the band will perform the record in its entirety, with select shows to be recorded for a live DVD. Support will be provided by labelmates Act Of Defiance. See all confirmed dates below.

Frontman John Bush comments: “Symbol Of Salvation! Arguably ARMORED SAINT’s most important record. These songs came out of us being dropped from Chrysalis Records and finding out about guitarist Dave Prichard developing Leukemia. The songs took on a much more emotional meaning than any other previous record. We wrote songs of desperation like ‘Another Day’ and ‘Last Train Home,’ experimental tunes like ‘Tainted Past’ and ‘The Truth Always Hurts,’ and classic SAINT rockers like ‘Reign Of Fire,’ ‘Dropping Like Flies,’ and the title track. After Dave passed, the band regrouped with Phil and Jeff returning as the guitar tandem. It was a family again.
