KAMIKABE Also Join Bloodletting North America Tour

(Pittsburgh, PA) Tech death metal machine, Kamikabe are proud to announce their participation in the return of Unique Leader‘s annual Extreme Metal tour, Bloodletting North America. They will be supporting their labelmates, French tech death metal masters, Gorod, as well as another fellow Unique Leader band, Inanimate Existence. Vale of Pnath (Willowtip) will be kicking things off each night.

The band had the following to say about the tour:

“We couldn’t be anymore stoked about this tour! An opportunity to shred with Gorod over here in the states is not something that happens too often. Plus, adding Inanimate Existence and Vale of Pnath to the lineup, as well as several other sick bands on select dates, makes this tour that much more crushing! We’ve been sharpening our blades and plan on destroying every city we hit. The years of hard work and support from everyone that has helped us along the way really speaks volumes for the Death Metal culture that we’re lucky to have. We’re excited to show Gorod how we do it over here, and more than ready to execute a full on assault from coast to coast!”

The tour spans from May 3 to June 1 covering the U.S. and parts of Canada. Also appearing on select dates will be Fallujah (Unique Leader), The Kennedy Veil (Unique Leader), Pyrexia (Unique Leader), Applaud the Impaler (Unique Leader), Rivers of Nihil (Metal Blade), Cognitive (Torture Music) and Archspire (Season of Mist).

IMPERIUM DEKADENZ Reveal Album Details

Season of Mist, French independent label for Metal and Rock

Black metal masters IMPERIUM DEKADENZ revealed the cover art for their forthcoming album, titled Meadows of Nostalgia.

IMPERIUM DEKADENZ rises from Germany‘s Black Forest and delivers unto us the epic new album. A black metal album in the classic sense; a desolate, morose journey from start-to-finish that transports the listener out into another place and time. Haunting, melodic guitars and passages of melancholy and despair build each song to new heights as IMPERIUM DEKADENZ craft black metal fused with nods to the old school into a sound they can call their own.

About the cover, the band said,

“A traveling salesman, marked by a hard life, wanders lost in his thoughts over the high passes of the Black Forest. Despite all, he follows his path without hesitation through harsh landscapes and yet the mountains stand proudly and the epic scenery might even be called romantic. This cover reflects all the emotions, impressions and facets of Imperium Dekadenz. It is an imperial Black Forest symphony!” 

Meadows of Nostalgia will be available in CD format, and a deluxe double LP that is limited to 250 copies worldwide on March 19 in North America

IMPERIUM DEKADENZ is available for interviews upon request. To speak with the band, please contact Enrique Sagarnaga via email or telephone (215-625-8400). IMPERIUM DEKADENZ news and updates will be made available through the Season of Mist website, and the IMPERIUM DEKADENZ website and Facebook page.
