Brazilian heavy/folk metal act LOTHLÖRYEN is preparing to hit the road to promote its new album, "Some Ways Back No More", available in Brazil through Die Hard Records. The trek, dubbed "In The Name of Tolkien - Folk Metal Tour 2009", will begin in March and will be a true "bard's alliance" with support act SKALDICSOUL and BLIND GUARDIAN COVER UNION, a group consisting of members of both bands, including vocalists Daniel Felipe and Rogério Malgor, who have a tone of voice similar to BLIND GUARDIAN's Hansi Kürsch.
Comented LOTHLÖRYEN guitarist Leko Soares: "Everything began after our first show to promote 'Some Ways...' last year, when we became friends of SKALDICSOUL. The affinity of both bands and the love shared for Tolkien's works, folk metal, and BLIND GUARDIAN, made us to search the ways to make the project of a conceptual tour to work. We hope that the producers embrace the idea and help us to bring Tolkien and metal to many places as possible."
