CANNIBAL CORPSE: Central/South American Tour Was 'A Great Success'

CANNIBAL CORPSE bassist Alex Webster has posted the following message on the band's web site:

"We have just returned from an 8-show tour of Central and South America. This was the first time we have had the opportunity to do a real tour of South America, and we were very happy with the great response we received down there.

"We had played in Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires and Santiago on separate occasions before, so we already knew they had great death metal scenes in those cities. The remaining 5 dates were in cities we had never played before, so we were very pleased to see that their death metal fans were just as brutal as the cities we had already been to.

"From what we saw on this tour, we'd have to say the scene down there is incredibly strong, with great, brutal fans, and lots of killer bands.

"The next time we tour South America, we'd like to arrange a few 'off' days, so we have more time to hang out with the fans we meet and see the cities we play in. The schedule for this tour was pretty hectic at times (we had a 12+ hour journey from Sao Luis to Buenos Aires that stopped at a total of 6 airports, for example), but the energy at the shows more than compensated for any lost sleep on the many flights we had.

"We also would like to play in some additional countries next time, as we know they must have great scenes as well.

"Now we're heading to Europe for the Waldrock Festival, where we'll get to play for thousands of Dutch metalheads, and share the stage with some of metal's biggest names. After that, we'll be heading north to Canada, so all of the death metal maniacs up there had better be ready!

"We want to give many thanks to all at Tumba Records for putting on this tour, and all of the local promoters that brought us to their cities. And of course, most importantly, we want to give massive thanks to the awesome, brutal fans in Brazil, Costa Rica, Argentina and Chile for making the tour the great success that it was."
