Black Crown Initiate :  Announce Tour With Rivers of Nihil, Archspire, Allegaeon & To The  Grave

American progressive death metal quintet Black Crown Initiate are proud to announce that they will be part of the second edition of the “Faces of Death” tour.  

Featuring a crushing five-band package, next year's Rising Merch Faces Of Death Tour will bedelivering cuts of the finest death metal direct into the faces of mosh loving diehards over 23 shows across 12 European countries. 

Co-headlining the second edition of Faces Of Death will be acclaimed American tech/prog death metal heavyweights Rivers Of Nihil and Canadian technical death metal powerhouse Archspire. The phenomenal Allegaeon from the USA will be delivering their brand of crushing noise to the masses, while Black Crown Initiate will be melting faces along with fast rising, unsigned Aussie newcomers To The Grave. From the very first riff to the final snarling vocal, this line-up will deliver non-stop mosh brutality every night.  

We all know COVID hit Europe before the first Faces Of Death Tour could be finidhed, but this time make sure to strap yourselves in for the ride and don’t miss out on the heaviest tour of 2021! 

Tickets and exclusive bundles go on sale on Friday 11th December 2020 at 11am CET / 10am UK time on www.facesofdeathtour.com

Having released two critically hailed, fan-worshipped works of progressive death metal, 2014’s Wreckage of Stars and its 2016 follow-up Selves We Cannot Forgive, BLACK CROWN INITIATE have found a new label home with Century Media. Formed in Reading, Pennsylvania in 2012, BLACK CROWN INITIATE have created a stir that’s stretched far beyond the underground with a sound that is at once sweeping, chaotic and epic in scope and ambition.
