No more thirty- or forty-minute sets; this time you will get the full monty - a setlist jam-packed with songs from all our albums, and we might even throw in a few surprises! Along with us, we're bringing melodeath super virtuosos THREAT SIGNAL, progressive masterminds STEALING AXION and space deathcore aficionados LORD OF WAR. It's gonna be a shredfest!"
