In 1998, “The Sound of Perseverance” – the very last studio album of progressive death metal icons DEATH from Florida – saw the light of day, and 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, and 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 – and it`s about time we changed 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. 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 who 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”.
