Following the band’s successful appearance at Los Angeles Murderfest 2.0 in February, Los Angeles’ CREMATORIUM is locked in as a support act for DEICIDE‘s upcoming West Coast tour in April. With only a limited number of dates across the western United States, the band is privileged to be selected alongside VITAL REMAINS to support the Florida death metal legends.
Having parted ways with guitarist Frank Perez, CREMATORIUM will bring the band’s brutal, groove-heavy signature brand of metal (dubbed “murdercore”) on the road as a four piece. “Since we’ve been playing as a four piece, we’ve been a more aggressive unit live with both our stage presence and our sound,” vocalist Daniel Dismal says. “We’re not planning on replacing Frank anytime soon, unless the right person comes along for the job.” Meanwhile, guitarist Mark Uehlein will take up lead guitar duties that once fell on Perez’s shoulders.
In addition to the line-up change and dates alongside DEICIDE, CREMATORIUM will be hard at work throughout 2006, continuing to drum up support for The Process of Endtime, the band’s latest record through Prosthetic, out on the road. The band has live dates before and after the DEICIDE tour, and is also planning a tour through Canada and a Mexican tour in the fall alongside ABORTED. While out on the road, CREMATORIUM will continue playing new songs which are tentatively set to appear on the band’s follow-up to The Process of Endtime.
