If you’ve ever attended a headlining run by one of the crushing bands on the circuit and wondered what the hell they were thinking when it came to the selected opening acts, I can assure you that you will not be musing anything of the sort when it comes to the “Meditations Over North America” from Kataklysm. This tour is an exciting one and you can learn more about it via the official press release down below. Don’t worry I will return at the close.

This pairing will be one that is talked about for many months and while originally scheduled for The Gramercy Theatre it has been moved to Santo’s Party House. All previously purchased tickets will be honored at this show and support will come from Winter Nights.
The Metal Legions were supposed to get a solid dose of Kataklysm during the planned tour with Sepultura last year but with that event being cancelled altogether it has been quite a bit of time since they made their way over to these parts. Luckily for us all they shall be returning and bringing along Aborted as their direct support. More information in the press release follows the poster below. I’ll chime in afterward for good measure
The Press Release: Montreal based death metal powerhouse KATAKLYSM, will tour North America in support of their newly released album Waiting for the End to Come next April with Belgian gore-grinders ABORTED! “It’s been a little while since we hit the road in North America with KATAKLYSM,” commented vocalist Maurizio Iacono. “We were bummed out when our tour with SEPULTURA was cancelled, so we decided to do what our fans have been asking us for and do a headlining run. This is guaranteed to be a good time with our friends in ABORTED and will also be a two part tour; we plan on returning in the Fall again to all the cities we are missing on this first part. Judging by our recent shows, the new material has been going over amazingly well live! We look forward to seeing you guys in April!!!” Continue reading Kataklysm’s Tour Will “Kill The Elite” in 2014→
As you read this I am sitting at my favorite Metal show launch spot Duke’s and thanks to their speedy free WiFi, I have just learned from the bands Facebook page that it is indeed the case and that Brazilian Metal legends Sepultura have cancelled their upcoming US Tour. The bands statement is below the poster…
“Due to the delay in obtaining a visa for the band to enter the United States, we regret to inform all fans that the previously announced North American tour is being cancelled. We apologize to the fans, promoters, and the bands who were going to be part of the Tsunami Of Metal tour – UNEARTH, KATAKLYSM, SCAR THE MARTYR, ANCIIENTS, and DARK SERMON.”
I know a lot of the PiercingMetal fans were psyched about attending this show in NYC in a few weeks and were also hoping that we would run a contest for it as well so it sucks to find this being the case, but the Visa issue dilemma is something that we are used by now since its happened to numerous bands that we were excited about heading here. I’ll keep the calendar updated should any rescheduling that should occur. Stay tuned and for the interim readers can follow the latest news in these bands lives by following their Official Websites which are linked below for your examination.
