FEAR FACTORY/DIVINE HERESY guitarist Dino Cazares has joined forces with GuitarWorld.com to show aspiring players out there just exactly how to play some of choice cuts on DIVINE HERESY's new album, "Bringer of Plagues". Click here to see Cazares break down how to play the hardest riffs from "Facebreaker" and also separately jam the track with Tim Yeung (drums) in another installment of the "Master Class" series.
DIVINE HERESY has replaced SAMAEL as direct support to MOONSPELL on the Portuguese group's upcoming North American tour, which kicks off on October 14 in Tampa, Florida. Also appearing on the bill are BOOK OF BLACK EARTH and SECRETS OF THE MOON.
Cazares had the following to say regarding DIVINE HERESY's addition to the MOONSPELL tour: "We have been waiting patiently for the perfect touring opportunity to present itself and we couldn't possibly be more pleased to be direct support to the mighty MOONSPELL this fall. This North American tour is exactly what we were looking for as we wanted a chance to perform in front of a lot of new faces that might not have been exposed to our band. This tour marks the kick-off of a massive worldwide touring campaign to support the new 'Bringer of Plagues' album.
"DIVINE HERESY is better than ever and we are embarking on this tour with only one, simple goal in mind: to annihilate everything in our path. Expect an unrelenting set and if your jaw isn't on the floor when we finish, then we haven't done our job, but that won't be the case. Be sure to come by the merch booth each night to say hello to us all and we look forward to seeing everyone soon. It's certainly been way too long."
"Facebreaker", the new video from DIVINE HERESY can be viewed below. The clip was helmed by renowned director Brian Thompson (KILLSWITCH ENGAGE) and features the band's frenetic live performance surrounded by an apocalyptic background setting.
