Midnight Priest - Rainha Da Magia Negra EP (PORTUGAL) 2009

Hallows Die Announce Canadian Tour‏

Not really my thing, but these guys messaged me so I figured I'll toss them a bone. Plus they opened for Atheist a few days ago and it's quite a task to independently book a tour. So here it is:

Fresh off their destruction of the East Coast tour last summer, Toronto Ontario’s Melodic Death Metal act Hallows Die are set to head off on an independently booked 23 day tour of Canada titled “Penetrate the Pacific 2011”. "With the end-goal in mind of promoting their sophomore album “MASKS” (Tentative release date: August 2011) the boys will be hitting both large cities and some smaller markets in their attempt to infect fellow metal heads with their unique sound and stage presence. The tour will kick off on May 13th in the Northern Ontario town of Sault Ste. Marie and climax in Vancouver on May 23rd, before the heading back towards Ontario."
