ARCH ENEMY return to Australia for a phenomenal headlining tour to demonstrate to metal heads here what they do best…delivering pure sonic force and ripping us apart with their stunning brand of metal!
These melodic extreme metal genre-leaders have become a synonym for success, hard work and pure f**king metal! The stunning chart entries of their last two albums “Doomsday Machine” (2005) and “Rise Of The Tyrant” (2007, charted in over a dozen countries!) have allowed the band to celebrate another peak of their already stellar career. Now, ARCH ENEMY proudly showcase their current strength and musical brilliance by releasing a breathtaking live document of their “Rise Of The Tyrant” touring cycle. Witness it first hand, the sheer brilliance of these melodic metal titans!
Arch Enemy guitarist/songwriter Michael Amott comments: "We’re totally looking forward returning to Australia, you know we’ve missed the fans and the great weather! Although the tours in ’06 (w/ Megadeth) and ’07 (w/ Machine Head) were amazing in many ways, we haven’t played a full headline tour in Australia since our first visit back in 2005. So this is long over due and we are more than ready to attack your shores once again! We can’t wait to give you the full ‘Arch Enemy Heavy Metal Mayhem’ experience! And we already know you – the fans, will bring it…Aussie style! See you all in November!"
In direct support will be New York death metal legends SUFFOCATION. Their fusion of technicality, groove and sheer unrelenting brutality has been imitated but never quite duplicated. And now, with the release of SUFFOCATION’s Nuclear Blast debut “Blood Oath”, their legacy of unrelenting and unique heaviness continues for perhaps the genres greatest band!
WINDS OF PLAGUE prepare to unleash their wrath across the Australia with their sophomore release. The stunning slab of brutality entitled “Decimate The Weak” does exactly that with its razor sharp riffs and sheer intensity backed with a monsoon of angst and inner demons that is just waiting to be expelled on stage.
