Polish black metal masters VESANIA, whose lineup includes Orion (BEHEMOTH) and Daray (VADER), have posted the following update on the recently completed "The Domination Tour 2006", also featuring GRAVE, CRYPTOPSY, DEW-SCENTED and ABORTED:
"We're approaching the end of the tour, with the final part turning out to be more difficult than originally anticipated. Our first show in Italy proved to be our last Italian show for the tour. Of course we have nothing against the beautiful city of Milan but... after a great show at Transylvania Live we exited the venue to find our bus on fire and several fire brigades fighting the flames! It was a surprising view but certainly not a funny one. The bus wasn't completely burnt (only the rear section) but we were unable to continue driving and for this reason had to miss our show in Rome. I know there were so many fans of VESANIA in Rome but honestly, this was beyond our control. As well as us, GRAVE and HURTLOCKER missed out on this show too. We finally met up with the rest of the bands in Geneva (Switzerland) which proved to be one of the best turnouts of the tour and made us feel better after the previous incident. Another three German shows followed (Trier, Osnabruck, Hanau). Unfortunately, the damage sustained by the tour bus was difficult to fix and so for the next few days we had to deal with no heating on board. It's certainly not the best thing for a man's health but it can always be much worse than this. From here there were two concerts in Holland (Aarnhem and Rotterdam) and then a final show in Hamburg. Thus, the tour was done! It was a huge deal for us and without doubt the biggest event that we've ever participated in. We did very well as a band, finally crossing the western Polish border and we hope to return to Europe as often as possible. Once again, thank you to all the bands, organisers and awesome audiences. This is just the beginning — await our future steps!"
