Florida death metallers, ORDER OF ENNEAD are very excited to soon be hitting the road with HATE ETERNAL, CANNABIS CORPSE, WORMROT and others in support of their latest release, AN EXAMINATION OF BEING. The band’s existential style and highly technical musicianship are best experienced in a live setting where the true spirit of their material is best felt. Guitarist/vocalist, Kevin Quirion had this to say about the tour: “We’re glad to be back on the road and can’t wait to play these songs from the new album. It’s a killer set and by the end you’ll be questioning your existence.”
Filling in for ORDER OF ENNEAD guitarist, John Li on all dates will be Shannon Hamm, formerly of DEATH and CONTROL DENIED. Wanting these appearances truly special for the fans, the band has rehearsed a number of DEATH songs that they will be performing throughout the tour. One such song would be the highly skilled and outright brutal track, “Symbolic” which was performed by the band (with both John Li and Shannon Hamm on guitars) this past June. Watch the performance here:

Steve Asheim – Drummer of Order of Ennead and Deicide
Interview by Luxi Lahtinen
Steve Asheim, the drummer of Deicide, is on his new exciting journey under Order of Ennead´s name – having also Kevin Quirion (Council Of The Fallen) on vocals and guitars, Scott Patrick (Resurrection) on bass and a young rookie named John Li taking care of lead guitars.
Order of Ennead´s blend of black- and death metal is somewhat extraordinary: Kevin´s snarling and vicious vocals and crushing guitar riffs, Steve´s thunderous and pounding drums of doom attacks and beautiful piano interludes, Scott well-hitting bass rolls and John´s truly phenomenal lead work – all these together, throw its listeners into an unforgettable and violent musical journey where one necessarily doesn´t want to return back from once paying a visit there. Order of Ennead certainly deliver their goods more than well on their self-titled debut that is supposed to be released by October 13th 2008 through Earache Records.
Steve Asheim reveals more accurate details to Metal-Rules.com about the band – how they got together, what kind of a process it was for them to get their debut album recorded, touring plans – and so forth. Now keep on reading – and praise the Lord Satan!
