Tour de Force



Ever gone to the fridge and, for whatever reason, ended up making yourself a sandwich consisting of several seemingly incompatible food stuffs that, once combined, managed to still somehow end up being totally delicious? C’mon, you know you’ve done it. Maybe it was the middle of the night and you were tired or maybe you were high or maybe you just didn’t have any turkey left like you thought you did, but somehow you ended up with horseradish and peanut butter both ending up on the pumpernickel and mmmm, it turned out pretty good.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the weird sandwich tour of 2009: The Haunted (whose Peter Dolving has blogged for MetalSucks not once but twice) and Intronaut (whose Sacha Dunable is a regular contributor to MetalSucks) will be the fresh baked bread bookending Nachtmystium and Kylesa as the meat.

Think about it: every band on this tour is awesome, but no two really play the same style of metal. Even if you wanna be a douche and say that three of the four bands are “hipster metal” or “beardo metal” or whatever, they’re still three different types of hipster metal. Swedish melodic death metal, psychedelic black metal, noise rock and stoner prog metal. All in one show.

It’s gonna be a helluva night.
