Regarding the cancelled dates, Dew-Scented commented,

“We apologize for any inconvenience this might produce and will be hopefully announcing re-scheduled dates for later this year very soon. However, we will still be appearing at Chaulnes Metal Fest 2013 since this show doesn’t clash with the other newly added dates. See you there”

In addition to the Testament tour, DEW-SCENTED confirmed their participation in the Full Metal Cruise, a week-long voyage featuring Kreator, Heaven Shall Burn, Firewind, Sabaton, Gamma Ray and Doro.

HATCHET Releases New Single

March 5, 2013 marks the release date of the latest album from the Bay Area’s Hatchet. The quartet’s sophomore work is a huge step forward in precise aggression, performance, songwriting and production. Having recently confirmed The End Records as the band’s new home the band and label want to share a new song from the album, Fall From Grace, in addition to the Dawn of the End cover art, as illustrated by All Things Rotten (Children of Bodom, Eluvetie, Amon Amarth).

Fall From Grace was chosen as the first preview track off Dawn of the End. This song is about the fall of Lucifer from heaven as the fable goes. Lucifer was struck down by God for taking a stand against him leading to what we now know as Satan and Hell; that is if you believe in that sort of thing.

The cover art of Dawn of the End was meant to depict and signify the title of the album in one picture. It’s the end of all mankind — a total apocalypse. This could be depicted in many ways, but to us this might be a scene from the end of the world with Death summoning demons to rise from their slumber and ascend unto our world and destroy it completely. I’ve just always been a fan of apocalyptic scenes. Very metal!” laughs Julz.
