Dec 222012

Much earlier this month we reported the announcement of the VOICES FROM THE DARK tour of North America, co-headlined by Marduk (Sweden) and Moonspell (Portugal) and including the talents of Inquisition (U.S.), The Foreshadowing (Italy), and Death Wolf (Sweden) (which features members of Marduk). At the time of our earlier report, no dates had yet been announced. Now they have.

I’m gratified to see that it will be stopping in Seattle. I know this will make you happy, because I know you want me to be happy and I am indeed happy about this tour, especially because of the chance it will give me (finally) to see Marduk and Inquisition. Maybe you will be able to see this tour, too. But if not, I will still be happy, and therefore you will still be happy.

Yesterday another new tour was announced. This one will be headlined by Today Is the Day (who will celebrate their 20th anniversary in 2013) with support from KEN Mode (Canada) and Fight Amp (U.S.), and with Black Tusk (U.S.) making appearances on select dates. When Black Tusk departs the tour in April, they will be replaced by another band whose identity has not yet been revealed. All these motherfuckers hit very hard, and seeing them all together should be an epic beatdown.

You’ll be thrilled to know that the tour will be stopping in Seattle. Dates:

About a week ago we reported leakage of news about a North American tour headlined by Cradle of Filth (UK) with support from The Faceless (US), Decapitated (Poland), and The Agonist (Canada). Now, the tour has been “officially” announced and the schedule has been unveiled.

Speaking for myself, the lure of Decapitated and The Faceless is enough reason to show up, and I’d like to see The Agonist as well. I am mildly curious (but only mildly) to see Cradle of Filth despite the fact that I don’t listen to their recordings. I’m sure I’ll stay for a song or two and see where that goes.

And yes, you’ll be ecstatic to know that the tour stops in Seattle.

  1. I saw both Marduk and Inquisition earlier this year on separate occasions, both at Studio Seven in fact. There’s no way I’m missing this, despite the fact that the show is inconveniently scheduled for the middle of the week.
