Australian thrash metal veterans MORTAL SIN have been added to the "Thrashfest Classics" European tour, set to take place in November/December. The band's setlist will consist of material from the "Mayhemic Destruction" and "Face Of Despair" albums. Also scheduled to appear are co-headliners SEPULTURA and EXODUS along with DESTRUCTION and HEATHEN.

Commented MORTAL SIN: "We're thrilled to announce MORTAL SIN will be joining the 'Thrashfest Classics' tour through Europe in November/December 2011, thanks to Rock The Nation. We're proud to be sharing the stage with thrash legends SEPULTURA, EXODUS, DESTRUCTION and HEATHEN, and playing songs from 'Mayhemic Destruction' and 'Face Of Despair' albums. The tour will also coincide with the European release of our new album, 'Psychology Of Death', on 18th November 2011 through NoiseArt Records.

"As a new chapter in the life of MORTAL SIN brings us back to our roots, we will be proud to stand alongside some of the pioneers of the thrash revolution performing for generations of loyal followers on the 'Thrashfest Classics' tour, thus filling the void between past and future.

"'Thrashfest' is proof that the unity among metal heads has stood the test of time and we are truly honored to be a part of it."

As previously reported, SEPULTURA's setlist will consist of material exclusively from the "Beneath The Remains", "Arise" and "Chaos A.D." albums. The trek's other co-headliner, EXODUS, will perform songs from the "Bonded By Blood", "Pleasures Of The Flesh" and "Fabulous Disaster"; DESTRUCTION will play tracks from "Sentence Of Death" and "Infernal Overkill"; and HEATHEN will perform selections from "Breaking The Silence" and "Victims Of Deception".

Commented the tour's promoter, Rock The Nation: "Back to the Eighties, back to the roots! Tour promoter Rock The Nation turns back the time for you headbangers, catapulting you back into the glorious Eighties the unforgettable days of prime for thrash metal with a phenomenal package of top acts. Hardly another period of time carries so much metal history with it than this one. Rough, rapid and impulsive sounds dominated the whole music-industry at that time. Breath-taking masterpieces of metallic art, which still enjoy authority and significance these days, emerged out of the creative urge of charismatic musicians and bands. Now the time is right to let the flair, the feeling and the sounds rise again! 'Thrashfest Classics' is a pure celebration for the high-culture of thrash metal. Some of the most influential combos will perform their cult albums in full length."
