Cretura returns overseas in September. Taking on England, Scotland and Ireland in one tour setting. Already joining forces are Mordrake from Bristol, Byrde from Norway, A Night In The Snow from Ireland and more bands still to be announced.
“In the set-list for this tour we’re going to try a whole bunch of different things. Our rehearsal plan is booked throughout august and September so that we can prepare everything and be at our best..even better than before!” - Sárá, Cretura
Cretura has ben on and off tour for the past 2 years after releasing their debut album “Fall Of The Seventh Golden Star”. The album made good reviews internationally and enabled the band to do tv appearances, tours and festivals. Last festival was the Metalhead Meeting with Behemoth and Cradle Of Filth.
Having their tour van stolen in Denmark, equipment stolen in Poland, and guitar gone missing from an aeroplane in Finland are all challenges the band has faced throughout their touring cycles and have managed to overcome. Shows are always the main priority!
“We are excited to be able to return to London, Essex and Leicester, places we visited last time around. And to be able to cover 3 countries in one tour leg is amazing!” - Markus, Cretura

Portugal's The Ominous Circle begins 'Poison Fumes Over North America MMXVIII' Tour with Scorched Surrounding Migration Fest
The mysterious Portuguese blackened death metal sect The Ominous Circle will embark on their maiden raid of America, with a run of Eastern US tour dates beginning tomorrow, July 24th. The tour sees them joined by 20 Buck Spin labelmates Scorched and includes their performance at Migration Fest this weekend.
The Ominous Circle is a burning black sphere of sinuous torment taking shape over their native land. Appalling Ascension, their initiation into this upper physical world, was released in early 2017 through 20 Buck Spin. While the reverent tropes of nowadays death metal will be recognizable to the band's adherents, the cauldron is mixed in myriad conjurations that stray from the retreating safety inferior forces are prone to linger in, with moments of oppressive death doom, grinding blasts of mania, rancid melodies and mid-tempo dynamic necromancy throughout. The late obsession of some to ignore songwriting in favour of cavernous ambient suffocating "evil" doesn't play on Appalling Ascension - here instead, and most welcome, are crushing and barbarous dark death metal songs for initiates to devote themselves to, and to enter the pantheon of most memorable debut recordings.
Poison Fumes Over North America MMXVIII will see the shrouded members of The Ominous Circl storming the East Coast from July 24th through July 31st. With support from Scorched, the tour will hit Brooklyn, Providence, Worcester, and Montclair on their way to perform at Migration Fest 2018 where they'll share the stage with Khemmis, Krallice, Pelican, Panopticon, Mournful Congregation, Bongripper, Zombi, The Cancer Conspiracy, Deadbird, Spirit Adrift, Thou, Yellow Eyes, and more. Following the fest, the tour will continue through Philadelphia and Washington, and end in Richmond.
See The Ominous Circle's "As The Worm Descends" RIGHT HERE and stream the entire Appalling Ascension album HERE.
