CANNIBAL CORPSE will be embarking on their first U.S. tour since dominating the stage as headliners of the Summer Slaughter Tour 2012. This headlining tour is scheduled to begin on November 16th and wrap up on December 7th. Dates and venues are listed below and can be found on the band’s Facebook page. Support will be provided by Misery Index and Hour of Penance. Tickets for the tour will be on sale beginning September 14th online and at your local venue’s box office.

CANNIBAL CORPSE are touring in support of their critically lauded, impossibly brutal full-length,Torture, released through Metal Blade Records earlier this year. On the twelfth studio offering of their inspiring twenty-four year career, the Floridian quintet have never sounded so vital, the album building upon the wealth of powerful, dark, and memorable songs comprising 2006’s Kill and 2009’s Evisceration Plague and pointedly upping the ante at every turn.

The record landed the band at #38 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart upon its first week of release, making it the highest debut in CANNIBAL CORPSE history!Torture landed at #7 on the Billboard Top Independent Album Chart, #4 on the Billboard Top Hard Music Albums chart and #32 Billboard Top Current Albums Chart. Produced by Hate Eternal’s Erik RutanTorture continues to reap critical accolades from critics and fans around the globe and is yet another testament to CANNIBAL CORPSE‘s permanent allegiance to shrewdly arranged, pile-driving Death Metal madness.

HOUR OF PENANCE – Announce New Drummer, Sign Endorsement Deals

Posted in Death Metal, death metal bands, Extreme Metal, Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on June 13, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Italian Death Metal horde HOUR OF PENANCE have announced the addition of drummer James Payne (Hiss From The Moat, Broken Heart Collage) to their lineup. Guitarist Giulio Moschini had the following to say: “Please welcome our new drummer James Payne. I’ve known him for quite a long time and he’s a very talented drummer. We’re proud to have him on board! James will be playing with us starting at Hellfest this weekend, and all of our dates on the Extreme fests here in Europe.“

Payne is currently endorsed By Tama, Vic Firth, and Zildijan and hosts his own YouTube show in which he has interviewed several drummers including Derek Roddy (Hate Eternal, Nile), Inferno (Behemoth), Paul Mazurkiewicz (Cannibal Corpse) and more. Payne commented, “I started my drumming career as a Death Metal drummer, but over the years I ended up playing several different styles. While I still enjoy playing those styles, Death Metal has always remained in my heart and now it’s time to bring it back! I am honored to be playing with a great band such as HOUR OF PENANCE!”

To check out a preview of Payne’s intense blasting, you can head over to Sickdrummer.Com to watch an exclusive video of him playing the track “Enlightened Submission” off of the band’s latest album Sedition HERE.

HOUR OF PENANCE also have some exciting news to share: “We’re proud to announce that we’ve recently signed an endorsement deal with the mighty Seymour Duncan pickups! All the guitars and basses we abuse will be equipped with the newest Seymour Duncan Blackouts active pickups for a more intense sonic attack.” In addition, guitarist Paolo Pieri also announced his newest endorsement with Strictly 7 Guitars. “It’s an honor to be part of the Strictly 7 Guitars artist team,” he says. “The gear they deliver is absolutely awesome! We’re working together on a customized 7-string beast; stay tuned.”

HOUR OF PENANCE’s debut Prosthetic release Sedition proved that the band was a force to be reckoned with. In support of the album — which Outburn labeled an “explosive brand of complex brutality“ and Metal Hammer praised for its “epic, portentous atmosphere” — the band took on their first assault of North America alongside Nile, Skeletonwitch and The Black Dahlia Murder. After returning back home, the band is preparing to storm the upcoming Hellfest, as well as appear on several dates of Extreme fest. Full dates are listed below.
