Long running death metal/hardcore stalwarts CREMATORIUM have just confirmed a handful of west coast dates, including appearances alongside BRUTAL TRUTH and at Murderfest 5.0. Here are the dates:
4/4 - The Sets - Tempe, AZ w/ BRUTAL TRUTH 4/5 - Jumping Turtle - San Marcos, CA w/ BRUTAL TRUTH 4/6 - TBA – CA w/ BRUTAL TRUTH 4/8 - Knitting Factory - Hollywood, CA w/ GOATWHORE 4/9 - Knitting Factory - Hollywood, CA (LA Murderfest 5.0)
The band are currently writing and demoing new material for an album that should surface by year’s end. Vocalist Daniel Dismal had this to say about the shows and the new material:
“I am excited to be sharing the stage with longtime friends BRUTAL TRUTH and GOATWHORE, as well as showcase some of the new material we have been working on. I never thought I would see the day where the death metal/hardcore hybrid scene would become so big. We decided now was the time for us to become more active, playing more shows and writing new material. I feel that this is CREMATORIUM’s most volatile and concise music to date. We can’t wait for people to hear our next step in the evolution of the band.”
Daniel Dismal has always been a strong supporter of underground music, through his upstart promotion company Church of the 8th Day, which besides booking shows all year long, is responsible for organizing the Los Angeles Murderfest. CREMATORIUM’s last album, The Process of Endtime was released in 2005 on Prosthetic Records.
