KATAKLYSM And HYPOCRISY To Join Forces For 'Death… Is Just The Beginning' European Tour

April 4, 2018

Montreal-based melodic death metallers KATAKLYSM will team up with Swedish death metal legends HYPOCRISY for a European co-headline tour, dubbed "Death… Is Just The Beginning".

The tour's special name traces back to Nuclear Blast's popular sampler series and promises nothing but evenings of moshpits and endless devastation.

KATAKLYSM's Maurizio Iacono commented: "It's been in talks for over two years and finally both KATAKLYSM and our brothers in HYPOCRISY can make the schedule work to join forces once more. It's been almost 15 years since we toured together and the last time we did the tours became instant classics. It's that time again folks... KATAKLYSM and HYPOCRISY team up once more for a world tour beginning with Europe this fall. To make things even greater, our record label Nuclear Blast has come on board and baptized the tour 'Death...Is Just The Beginning', a homage to the old classic compilations that made so many fans discover both bands back in the day. This will mark the return of this classic compilation with this tour and maybe give other artists the chance to get discovered like we did. Do not miss this tour, you only get one chance!"

HYPOCRISY's Peter Tägtgren added: "I hope that you are just as excited as we are, because we are very happy to announce that we are finally warming up the HYPOCRISY engine again and that we will be back on the road in fall! We will be touring Europe together with our friends in KATAKLYSM! The tour will be an overview of the chaos and confusion created by HYPOCRISY over the years. See you out there!"
