Swiss melodic-folk-death-metallers ELUVEITIE will return to North America next February, in support of their new latest masterpiece Everything Remains As It Never Was. Joining them will be 3 INCHES OF BLOOD, HOLY GRAIL, SYSTEM DIVIDE. Vocalist and mastermind Chrigel Glanzmann had this to say about the bands much anticipated return to our continent:
“Since we joined AMON AMARTH to support them on their tour in the US last April, we only got to play a shorter set there. So, after touring all over Europe and the UK for several months now, it’s definitely high time we came back to America with an full set list. We’re really happy and looking forward to finally visiting the US again to rock the living shit out of our fans! We plan on spoiling you with an extended set, an extended stage performance and some surprises!
Also, we’re proud to present you an absolute killer package, totally under the banner of pure fucking metal! We will return with no less than the Canadian berzerkers of 3 INCHES OF BLOOD, our Californian true metal buddies from HOLY GRAIL, along with SYSTEM DIVIDE, an amazingly talented young melodic death metal band!
Well, there’s not much left to say – horns up for a pure fucking metal massacre! See you there!”
