MASSACRE, MACABRE, MASTER: European 'Army Of Darkness' Tour Dates Announced

Terry Butler (DEATH, MASSACRE, SIX FEET UNDER, DENIAL FIEND, OBITUARY) and Frederick "Rick Rozz" DeLillo (MANTAS, DEATH, MASSACRE, M INC.) will celebrate the 20th anniversary of MASSACRE's classic "From Beyond" album by embarking on a European tour in January/February 2012. Dubbed "Army Of Darkness", the trek will feature additional performances from MACABRE and MASTER.

Commented MACABRE's Corporate Death: "We are really excited by this upcoming tour. MACABRE, MASSACRE and MASTER, three bands that started a really long time ago and all have their sound. The fans are in for a treat and we are going to have a great time on this tour ourselves."

Added Rozz: "[I am] really looking forward to this tribute to MASSACRE. It has been over 20 years and a lot of hair loss since Terry Butler and I have jammed together, and it's going great, along with Mike Mazzonetto (drums) and Ed Webb (vocals). This is going to be a great time with old and new friends, and the 'From Beyond' tracks have never sounded this heavy/brutal."

Stated Butler: "We are very excited to be bringing the fans a proper MASSACRE show and tour. We've been working our asses off to fine tune a few things and bring you the best show possible. It's been a long time, but better late than never. It makes it even better to be touring with legendary friends MACABRE and MASTER. This is going to be a killer show for the fans."
