Aborted:  issues statement regarding North American tour cancellation; KRISIUN to continue tour with ARSIS this week
Goremasters ABORTED have cancelled their North American tour plans. In regards to this cancellation, front-man Sven de Caluwé comments:

"Unfortunately rumors are true. We were forced to pull out of our North American tour with HYPOCRISY, KRISIUN and ARSIS. Due to reasons beyond control, HYPOCRISY were not able to receive their US visas in time and had to pull out. We only found out 3 days ago and were sharing transport with HYPOCRISY. Being this close to the start of tour, finding an affordable method of transportation and a driver was a near impossible task, making it impossible for us to still make it. We are extremely disappointed as we were very excited to make it back out to the US for our fans and share the stage on this great line-up. We had flights booked, visas processed, and everything was good to go, so when the news hit, it came as a shock. This cost us several thousands of dollars out of our own pockets and continuing would cost us even more money, which we simply don't have. We apologize to the fans and are already looking for a replacement tour in the near future. KRISIUN and ARSIS are still doing the tour, and we urge you all to still go and support them. All the bands here are victims in this of bureaucratic procedures, so no need to point fingers. We are all as broken by this as anyone else."

KRISIUN will be touring in support of their recently released 8th studio album, The Great Execution. Produced by Andy Classen at Stage One Studio in Germany, The Great Execution musically expands upon the death metal trio's trademark high-speed death metal with an increased amount of diversity, ranging from extreme tempo variations over distinct rhythm patterns to clean guitars-- and even Flamenco parts! For a preview of The Great Execution, click here to watch the video for the album track "The Will To Potency."

Inspired by the likes of early CHILDREN OF BODOM, NIGHTWISH, AMON AMARTH and DRAGONFORCE, Chicagoland-based STARKILL aims to pay homage to these acts, while also putting their own spin on Euro-metal-- and their new album, Fires of Life, does just that. Produced by the band's own Parker Jameson and mastered by death metal legend, James Murphy (DEATH, TESTAMENT, OBITUARY), the album's concept, both lyrically and musically, is overlain in medieval fantasy-themed battles, mythology, and destruction. For a preview of Fires of Life, click here to watch the video for the album track "New Infernal Rebirth."
