Russian sci-fi metal group Sunwalter head out on their first tour of 2018 taking 3 East European countries. Titled The Course Of The Alien King, this will be a joint tour with Polish group Lux Perpetua. The band are still heavily promoting their recent release, Alien Hazard, which has been getting extremely positive reviews. This is always a fun and colourful band to check out live and they hope to announce dates in Russia and wider afield very soon!
Here’s the Sunwalter tour announcement from their always entertaining Facebook page;
“Earthmen! After the lengthy New Year holidays, we have finally returned to the habitual orbit around this planet. While the Earth celebrated the date, we have decided on the upcoming venues in terms of our next European tour, and we are ready to share the information with you. Unfortunately, there are no dates of Russian shows on the list yet, but we’ll try to persuade the Anunnaki race to consider that territory as landing site during the tour. Please, don’t hesitate to let us know, where else you would like to visit Sunwalter performances.”

Mexican symphonic folk metallers Cabrakaän will be hitting the road with Quebec's Valfreya and Alberta's Forsaken Rite for this year's "March Of The Frozen Western Canadian Tour". The tour will see the Mexican transplants whom now call Canada home and residing in Calgary, AB perform in three provinces during the month of February. During the tour, Cabrakaän will showcase new tracks from their upcoming 2018 full length "Cem Anahuac" due out in spring 2018 to follow their 2014 debut EP "Songs From Anahuac".
Staying true to their roots, Cabrakaän's music combines elements of metal orchestrated with Mexican folklore along with a wide variety of instruments such as strings, acoustic guitars, Jarocha harp, marimba, ocarinas, Huehuetl, and Teponaztle. Their lyrics are in English, Spanish, Zapoteco, Nahuatl and other ancient Mexican languages. The band's name is based on a character from the Mayan sacred book known as the Popol Vuh, where Cabrakaän was the god of mountains and earthquakes.
"We are proud our roots and our culture and we want to share it with the world through our music. When we are on stage, we try to give our fans a great experience by creating an atmosphere from the time of the Aztecs, using costumes and make up. The purpose of our sets too is to give fans more of our culture visually and musically so they can connect with us and enjoy the performance even more." says drummer Marko Cipaktli.

Cabrakaän was formed in Toluca, Mexico in 2012 and have been calling Canada home since first performing in the country at the 2017 Metalocalypstick fest in Lone Butte, BC where the beauty of the North won them over and encouraged them make the grand decision to relocate.Their debut EP "Songs From Anahuac" was unleashed in 2014 and displayed a mix of death, folk, and symphonic European influences with Prehispanic instruments along with storytelling of Mesoamerican mythologies (Aztec, Mayan, Tlaxcaltecan, Olmecan) plus Mexican folklore such as La llorona, La Bruja, Day of The Dead.
Wasting no time in Canada, Cabrakaän are currently completing production on their follow up full length album entitled "Cem Anahuac" set for release in spring 2018. The album will be an expression of pride for their roots, history and traditions along with their love for metal and traditional music from their home country of Mexico.
Rotting Christ and Carach Angren have updated their extensive European co-headlining tour, "Rituals Amongst The Rotten" in January and February 2018. The Greek veterans and Dutch masters of horror metal will be joined by French blackened death outfit Svart Crown.

Epica celebrates 1000th show anniversary at 013 Tilburg!
On Saturday 14th April 2018 – just after their UK tour - the symphonic metal icons, along with support from Myrkur and Oceans Of Slumber, will celebrate their 1000th show anniversary at 013 in Tilburg, the Netherlands. After their recent sold out shows in the Netherlands, Epica is more than proud to announce that they will perform this mile-stone event at the legendary 013 venue, the exact same venue where it all started for the band 16 years ago!
Vocalist Simone Simons stated: "Back in 2002, we could have never imagined that one day we'd be playing our 1,000th live show! This couldn't have happened without the support of our dearest and most loyal Epica legion, so in order to make this an unforgettable night, we've invited some very cool guests to perform with us!"
Guitarist Mark Jansen added: "I remember our very first show at 013, Tilburg as if it was yesterday. Back then we were supporting Anathema, but now 16 years later, we'll have the honour to be celebrating our 1,000th show at the same venue as headliners. We could have never achieved this without the support of our loyal fans, so we definitely wanted to make this an amazing night to celebrate all together with also some very cool special guests! We hope to see you all in Tilburg!"
