Swedish black metal vets Marduk have formed like Voltron with Portuguese gothic metalers Moonspell to form the upcoming Voices From The Dark North American tour. The tour will take place from February through March 2013 and feature support from Inquisition, The Foreshadowing, and Death Wolf. Dates are yet to be announced but we’ll keep you posted.
You can find statements from every band on the tour by clicking here.
Marduk are touring in support of their recent release Serpent Sermon while Death Wolf is actually a side project of Marduk guitarist Morgan Håkansson and according to him it’s their first “proper” tour, so it should be interesting to see what they bring to the table.
Marduk guitarist Morgan Håkansson stated the following about the tour:
“It’s with great delight that we return to your shores again in support of our latest album ‘Serpent Sermon.’ We look forward to march across the continent delivering the gospel of the worm. No mercy will be given!!”
Moonspell frontman Fernando Ribeiro had this to say:
“The time for a North American tour is finally up and we are proud to return overseas to bring you all the darkened magic of our Portuguese legend and sound, a rebellion made of passion and communion with the fans. We invite you all to witness the charm and power of ‘Alpha Noir’ and ‘Omega White’ but also to celebrate with us our twentieth anniversary as a band and time travel with us to ‘Wolfheart’, ‘Irreligious’ and songs never played before in the American territory. The time has come to gather the pack; let the games begin!!!”
Dagon from Inquisition said this:
“Inquisition is pleased to accept the invitation for a return to a second North American tour and evoke the magic of our majesty. We hope to see those who missed us recently and those loyal supporters who choose to return. This shall be our final full North American tour until the new album is released in late 2013”.
Alex from The Foreshadowing stated the following:
“It will be our first time in North America and we are very proud to hit the road with such great bands!!! Are you ready to be part of the Second World?”
Then once again Morgan Håkansson had this to say, but about Death Wolf:
“Right upon the release of our second album, we will be marching across the States on this killer tour, a hard-hitting lineup of bands ready to bring darkness over the continent. It’s the first proper tour DEATH WOLF is doing and soon, the march of the DEATH WOLF will begin! The circle of abomination is coming…”
