DEW-SCENTED Taps HOLY MOSES Guitarist For NILE Tour

German thrashers DEW-SCENTED have recruited Michael "Michi" Hankel (pictured below; EROSION, HOLY MOSES) to play rhythm guitar on their upcoming European tour with NILE.

Commented the band: "We have known Michi for several years now and are certain he will complement the band in a great way for the coming shows!"

Added Michi: "I am proud to let you know that I am joining DEW-SCENTED for their upcoming European tour. I have liked these guys and their material since many years and in my opinion DEW-SCENTED are a real challenge for all thrash metallers. Their songs are sounding heavy now and will kick you right in the face... I am truly looking forward to meeting you all on this amazing tour!"

DEW-SCENTED's tour with NILE, MELECHESH, ZONARIA and DARKRISE, dubbed "Those Whom The Gods Detest - European Tour 2011", is scheduled to kick off on January 20 at Mega Club in Katowice, Poland. A list of the dates can be found on the poster below.

Rhythm guitarist Martin Walczak left DEW-SCENTED earlier in the month "due to changes in his personal life and lack of availability to move forwards with music at this stage."

Walczak made his final appearance with DEW-SCENTED at the Winter Metal Meeting in Leer, Germany on December 18.

"Invocation", the latest album from DEW-SCENTED, was released in Japan on September 15 via Spiritual Beast. The Japanese edition of the CD came with an alternate coloring of the cover artwork (sort of the "post-apocalypse version") and included four bonus tracks. The bonus tracks are two original songs, "Recall The Pain" (instrumental) and "The Death Of Common Sense", as well as two cover versions that the band recorded during the album session, 'Slaughterhouse' by U.S. power-thrashers POWERMAD and the track "Superstar Destroyer" by GENOCIDE SUPERSTARS from Sweden.

"Invocation" was released on May 24, 2010 in Europe via Metal Blade Records and May 25. 2010 in North America through Prosthetic Records.

The album artwork was created by Björn Goosses of Killustrations.

"Invocation" was recorded and mixed at Soundlodge Studio in Northern Germany with producer Jörg Uken (GOD DETHRONED, SINISTER).
