Zoroaster

“North America is”, or rather WAS, “Doomed” when the tour of the same name rolled on through NYC, hitting Studio at Webster Hall on August 9th. Packed with the mind-melting lineup of Zoroaster, The Gates of Slumber, and Serpentcult, the trio are closing up the final days of the campaign. Zoroaster and The Gates of Slumber will meet again in the very near future though, as part of the Planet Caravan Fstival in North Carolina along with a veritable all-star line up of doom heavyweights.

The Gates of Slumber‘s new LP, Hymns Of Blood & Thunder is due on 9/29/09 via the mighty Rise Above Records. Dig on the tracklisting below and the first taste of the LP, “The Bringer Of War”, above!

Zoroaster are also scheduled to join Gojira and Burst for a few dates surrounding Gojira‘s appearance on the Metallica tour. Those dates include Music Hall of Williamsburg on 9/21 (tickets here). The tour is part of Burst‘s farewell tour (which is also their first US tour).

Following Zoroaster‘s US dates, the Atlanta band will hit Europe for a gang of dates with Absu, Nachtmystium, and Razor of Occam. To the outsider, this may seem like an odd match for Zoroaster (three bands of black metal descent, and Zoroaster, who are clearly more in the doom vein) unless you keep in mind that Black Judd of Nachtmystium issued Zoroaster‘s first LP and EP via his Battle Kommand imprint.
