Fan-filmed video footage of DEATH TO ALL's November 27 performance in Toronto, Ontario, Canada can be seen below.Drummer Sean Reinert was forced to leave DEATH TO ALL's "Swamp Leper Stomp '14" North American tour due to health reasons. He is being replaced for the remainder of the trek by fellow DEATH alumnus Gene Hoglan (also of TESTAMENT, DARK ANGEL, DETHKLOK). The current lineup of DEATH TO ALL — which features former members of DEATH celebrating the life and music of Chuck Schuldiner — is rounded out by Steve DiGiorgio (TESTAMENT, CONTROL DENIED, SADUS) on bass and Bobby Koelble on guitar. Max Phelps (CYNIC), who has been touring with DEATH TO ALL, is once again handling the vocal and second-guitar duties. The "Swamp Leper Stomp '14" North American tour is a month-long run featuring DEATH TO ALL alongside fellow death metal legends OBITUARY and MASSACRE plus up-and-comers RIVERS OF NIHIL. DEATH TO ALL 's lineup for most of the recent tours included guitarist Paul Masvidal, who also played on DEATH's classic "Human" album. In an interview with Metal-Rules.com, Masvidal stated about DEATH TO ALL's most recent touring incarnation: "[Because] it's just the 'Human' lineup, it's a tighter show. We're focusing on the best of leading to 'Human' and then a bunch of 'Human' material. So it's more the early DEATH catalog, and it just feels really good, 'cause Sean and I have a lot of chemistry from playing together a long time from CYNIC and everything. And Steve, who is just kind of one of us too, so it feels like really cohesive, it feels tight and we've been able to make it the kind of show that feels like a band show versus the last one. Which I think was a little bit more fragmented 'cause there was a lot of different musicians and it was kind of all over the place. So this feels tighter." He added: "This [lineup] is as close as you'll get [to reproducing the 'Human' era] and Max bears a slight resemblance [to Chuck] if you squint your eyes. It's kind of interesting. And he sounds like him, too. It's pretty crazy but yeah, it works, it works well." Chuck died on December 13, 2001 after a battle with pontine glioma, a rare type of brain tumor.
