1349 forced to miss opening date on Cannibal Corpse tour
Norwegian black metallers 1349 are forced to cancel the first dates on CANNIBAL CORPSE's Evisceration Plague Tour that was scheduled to begin today (April 20th).
Says the band: "Unfortunately we will have to let all our fans know that we will not be able to make it to the first shows of the tour with Cannibal Corpse. First of all our visas, which we have applied for months ago, are still not being cleared and secondly air traffic in Europe is being a major problem in the last couple of days and still will be in the next days. We are trying our best to join this tour however right now we are not able to tell anybody when and if this is going to happen. As soon as we have any news on the situation we will let you know.”
1349's upcoming fifth full length, Demonoir, due out April 27th in North America via Prosthetic Records, was recorded at Studio Nyhagen, deep in the woods in Norway with Tom G. Warrior (TRIPTYKON, ex-CELTIC FROST, HELLHAMMER), who showed the greatest respect for the task and played a key role as motivator and catalyst. His technical role of the recording was that of a co-producer, but far more important was his presence and understanding of what a challenging project Demonoir was.
Ravn Comments: "In hindsight, it is our belief that Tom was the missing piece of the puzzle, adding that element of heritage we needed. He represented the direct link to the Creators! We also need to mention three other contributors; Ronnie leTekrö - one of the most acclaimed guitarists on the globe, wrenched his soul inside out as he recorded one of the leads for 'Psalm 7:77'; a truly breathtaking experience. We had some excellent, wicked grand piano play carried out by Canadian pianist Tony Caputo. And then there was Thorbjørn Benjaminsen of HORNORKESTERET that recorded some spine chilling themes with his stringed reindeer horns, adding a touch of natural grimness to the electric inferno."
