Chilean death metal warriors THORNAFIRE have been forced to cancel their participation in the upcoming U.S. tour featuring MONSTROSITY and TORN THE FUCK APART.Commented guitarist Victor MacNamara: "Due to delays in the processing of our visa application to enter the USA, THORNAFIRE will unfortunately have to cancel their appearance on the monstrosity U.S. tour 2009, scheduled to take place this June. We've done everything in our power and have followed every procedure to make this happen, but the process is very expensive and time-consuming. This matter is out of our hands and we are very disappointed as this was to be our first opportunity to show our madness to the U.S. fans. "On a happier note, we are releasing our second album, 'Vorex Deconstrucción', and it's already sounding very impressive! We are also working with Ibex Moon Records on setting up a new U.S. tour." THORNAFIRE has captured the true spirit of a Southern American death metal style that worships at the altar of the ancient ones and takes it cues from the likes MORBID ANGEL, KRISIUN, (early) SEPULTURA, and PENTAGRAM (Chile), while putting its own unique spin on the genre. On "Exacerbated Gnostic Manifestation", THORNAFIRE burned through 46 minutes of more groove-filled pummel, killer riffs, and occult/anti-Christian atmosphere than even the truest believers could handle without bowing down in obeisance to the Chilean death metal gods. The combination of Juan Pablo Donoso's batter and clatter drumming, Victor Mac-Namara's giant array of monster riffs, and bassist Alexis Munoz's David-Vincent-meets-Tom-G-Warrior vocals was nothing short of explosive.
