Canadian technical death metal pioneers GORGUTS, have been added to the DEATH TO ALL TOUR 2012! The history and legend that is this band surely makes the tour that much more interesting. Luc Lemay, Gorguts' founder and frontman, is a legend himself and we could not be any more excited about this announcement. Gorguts will be opening all shows up to but not including Orlando. Here is the official statement about the tour from Luc:
“If I owe one person regarding the fact that I chose to become a Death Metal musician in life, I totally
owe this to Chuck Schuldiner.
Back in 86-87 I was already a fan of the genre with Possessed’s 'Seven Churches', Celtic Frost’s 'Morbid Tales' and Hellhammer’s 'Apocalyptic Raids'. But the day I put my hand, DEATH’s 'Scream Bloody Gore' cassette tape, my life changed. All I wanted was to become a guitar player, playing death metal and singing with a raw, evil and brutal voice like Chuck.
So here I am, twenty five years later, as passionate as day one. Being on stage paying homage to this amazingly visionary and creative artist, Chuck Schuldiner. In my heart I see him as important as any composer of the 20th and 21st centuries. He created a language and a musical esthetic that will never be forgotten.”
DEATH TO ALL 2012 – In benefit of Sweet Relief (sweetrelief.org). This 5 city tour will feature a majority of DEATH's amazing musicians, as well as special guests. This tour is to celebrate the life and music of Chuck Schuldiner, as well as to raise awareness of Sweet Relief Musicians Fund – a charity that provides financial assistance to career musicians faced with illness, disability or age-related problems.
