Into Darkness 2012 tour dates
The gaping, sinister and black abyss has many faces – just like its musical offspring…for the second time, the INTO DARKNESS tour will crawl upon Europe! In time for the dawning of black winter days, a live package will start hitting clubs November 9th and boasting a line up full of dark gems of the widest stylistic variety: industrial metal, gothic tunes, melancholic doom – this tour has it all!
Swedish legends PAIN featuring maestro Peter Tägtgren (HYPOCRISY) will fill the headliner position, and this act can truly make the dead dance! Morbid lyrics meet stomping industrial beats and wicked metal guitars: a band to make every goth, EBM freak and metalhead in the audience happy with evergreens such as ‘Eleanor Rigby‘, ‘Follow Me‘ or ‘Shut Your Mouth‘! 2011 saw the release of “You Only Live Twice” and PAIN are renowned to spread a heavy and somber atmosphere live especially.
MOONSPELL from Portugal had their breakthrough in 1996 with “Irreligious” and on tour with TYPE O NEGATIVE. Now they`ll crown the INTO DARKNESS tour with sophistication, catchiness and sonar vastness! Call it gothic metal, call it avant-garde dark metal – MOONSPELL are guaranteed to make heads turn with their upcoming double release “Alpha Noir” and “Omega White”!
Some like to lump them into the doom category, but Finns SWALLOW THE SUN rather see themselves as blacksmiths of melancholic metal. Recently they issued “Emerald Forest And The Blackbird” and made it clear that they are unmatched with their concoction of slow motion sound, depressing melodies, nightmarish atmosphere and a bit of death metal heaviness. LAKE OF TEARS on the other hand seem to change styles with every album, but one thing remains the same: the sheer darkness lurking behind all the highly melodic compositions of the Swedish veterans. Grandiose albums like “Illwill” (2009) melt goth sounds with death metal and catchiness.
An exciting and varied line up that will haunt European clubs in November!
