After about a week back home and with a little distance it´s time to reflect a bit on our completed "Taking Life And Giving Death" South American tour.
The usual obstacles like 16 hour van rides through the colombian mountains with a suicide driver, waiting in immigration lines or the "with every airline different"
baggage regulations which forced us repacking our shit again and again until all our personal stuff, merch and gear was spread in all eachothers bags. At this point a special fuck off to SKY Airlines for ripping us off on overweight bagagge)
This time we unfortunately also had to deal with a totally unexpected situation with the absence of Invoker during the last 2 gigs in Ecuador (The reason for that
got explained already). But once again the total overwhelming hospitality, passion, dedication and fanaticism of the people very well made up for all of the work we put into this tour. Most of all we want to thank Alexander Yela and Wolf Legions Productions for inviting us for this tour and making this happen for us at all.
Also Muchas Gracias to all the bands we played, partied or simply shared a few words with, everyone who gave us gifts as CD´s and Tapes ! We are always happy to get our hands on south american underground metal which has unfortunately not much distribution here in europe.
Special thanks go out to the guest singers who helped us out as good as possible at the Ecuador gigs, you made those gigs some really memorable ones.
Last but not least we want to thank everyone of you who came out celebrating some unholy thrash metal with us we hope you had a blast just as much as we did! Everyone who did pictures or videos, feel free to share them with us !
Until next time ! UNHOLY THRASH METAL FOREVER !

How something so small can be so precious💕 Although this is an old picture, then it is still so dear to me.
Cato the small spotted genette, was born on a rainy day and left by his mom, so we raised him by hand and he is now fully grown, healthy and strong. Genettes are the oldest species of cats in the world and most of the cats, as we know them today, originated from these guys, with hyenas being the latest branch in the Felid family. Genettes are excellent climbers and lives in trees(or roofs) using their super long, fluffy tails for balancing. You'll be lucky to see one though, they only come out at night😉
#léonspilliaert was a #belgian#painter best known for his #mysterious, #symbolist works. Depicting #nocturnal#landscapes, windswept beach scenes, and #alien#portraits, #spilliaert’s oeuvre is united in its consistent fascination with the interior emotional landscape of people. Throughout his practice, the #artist emphasized aspects of and stylized his observations of reality so that patterns and moods reoccurred within his varied subject matter. Much like the #french painter and #printmaker#odilonredon, Spilliaert often used pastels to create the sense of a #dream-like haze, lending his work a distinctive, softened aesthetic. Born on July 28, 1881 in Ostend, Belgium, he was often ill and so spent much of his childhood #drawing landscapes around his home. At age 21, he went to Brussels to work as an #illustrator for #edmonddeman, a publisher who specialized in Symbolist writers like #edgarallanpoe, which allowed him to pursue his own personal brand of expressive #painting. Today, Spilliaert’s works are held in the collections of the #muséed’Orsay in Paris, the #metropolitanmuseumofart in #newyork, and the Museum of Fine Arts #ghent, among others. Spilliaert died on November 23, 1946 in Brussels, Belgium.
1990년대 초, 일본을 강타한 새로운 사운드 - 테크노 음악은, Takaaki Itoh가 이전까지 들어보지 못했던 새로운 비트들과 함께 새로운 일본 언더그라운드 뮤직씬을 열기 시작하였다. Takaaki는 빠르게 이 새로운 사운드에 중독되기 시작하였으며, 1994년부터는 그의 고향인 북일본 지역에서 스스로 테크노 파티를 만들며 빠르게 자신의 이름을 알려나가기 시작했다. 1996년, 자신만의 사운드를 트랙으로 만들기로 결심하면서 발표한 Takaaki Itoh의 순수한 언더그라운드 테크노 음악은, 이전까지 유럽에서 들어보지 못했던 새로운 스타일의 일본 언더그라운드 테크노로 각인되기 시작하였고, 그는 곧 일본 전역과 유럽에서 큰 사랑을 받기 시작하며 가장 존경받는 일본 언더그라운드 디제이로 인식되기 시작했다. 2001년, 유럽으로 활동무대를 옮긴 Takaaki는 Berghain, Tresor와 같은 대형 테크노 클럽들과 Awakenings페스티벌 같은 무대에서 플레이하며 전 세계 프로모터들과 파티피플들의 큰 사랑을 받기 시작했다. 이후 자신의 레이블 Wols를 시작하며 한 단계 더 앞으로 나아간 Takaaki Itoh는, 현재 새로운 테크노 세대의 선두주자로서 일본과 유럽을 오가며 활발한 활동들을 보이고 있다.
