Guitarist Isaac Delahaye of the Dutch death metal outfit GOD DETHRONED has posted the following message on the band's official web site:
"We're halfway the [European] tour [supporting THE HAUNTED and GOD FORBID] and it's going great so far! Didn't really have any major troubles and we played a lot of cool shows. Though we don't really play for a death metal audience, we get a shitload of incredibly good reactions. Wicked!
"Last night, THE HAUNTED's guitar player Jensen drove us all the way to Barcelona, Spain, 'cause apparently he wanted to do something useful instead of getting bored on the tour bus. It was cosy, but we didn't have any sleep. Right now we're hanging around, spending too much money on coffee and waiting for the other THE HAUNTED guys to show up.
"A big 'thanx!!' to all the crazy mothafuckahz who banged their head, gave us some horns, started a slamming pit, or just enjoyed one of our performances on this tour. Y'all make it worthwhile!
"Also expect a picture gallery update and a tour report right after we're home again.
But now it's time to rock the stage in Barcelona..."
GOD DETHRONED's most recent album, "The Lair of the White Worm", was released last November via Metal Blade Records. The follow-up to 2003's "Into the Lungs of Hell" was recorded at Berno Studios in Malmö, Sweden by Henrik Larsson and was mastered at Franky's Recording Kitchen by Berthus Westerhuis. It marks the group's first release with new members, guitarist Isaac De La Haye (who replaced Jens van der Valk) and bassist Henk "Henke" Zinger (GRINDMINDED).
