It's Official: PRO-PAIN Replace DEATH ANGEL On KREATOR Tour

As BLABBERMOUTH.NET first reported on February 17, Candlelight Records has now officially confirmed that PRO-PAIN have replaced DEATH ANGEL on the upcoming Enemy of God U.S. tour featuring KREATOR, VADER and THE AUTUMN OFFERING. The tour, beginning April 3 at New York's B.B. Kings, follows the band's recently completed trek, their first in over five years, alongside ENTOMBED, CROWBAR and THE MIGHTY NIMBUS.

Still in support of the successful "Fistful of Hate", released April 2004, PRO-PAIN are expected to premiere material from their new album, "Prophets of Doom", now set for U.S. release on June 14. The tour will also see through the release of the band's first official DVD, titled "Raw Video", dropping in stores April 19.

Formed by bassist/vocalist Gary Meskil (ex-CRUMBSUCKERS), PRO-PAIN released their debut, "Foul Taste of Freedom", in 1992. The record was an instant success and has since SoundScanned over 60,000 units. Successive albums, "The Truth Hurts" (1994), "Contents Under Pressure" (1996) and "Pro-Pain" (1998) saw sales growth continue with combined album sales in the U.S. breaking 100,000 units. In 2004, Candlelight released the band's latest album, "Fistful of Hate". It has been described as the band's heaviest and most aggressive album to date.
