MACABRE Added To MASSACRE’s European Tour

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 (replacing Swedish death metal veterans GRAVE, who say they never confirmed their participation in the trek) 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.”
