It was the first time in our career that we had to cancel a series of live shows in a country that has some of the most loyal and devoted Metal fans on the planet. We hope that we can make it up to the fans this time around and are proud to premier a brand new live set that will include songs from our brand new album "Fire And Damnation", for the very first time in Mexico!"

Plymouth-based UK Death / Thrashers HOLODOMOR, have just released their debut MCD "Témoignages De La Gnose Terrestre". It is limited to 500 copies and features the following five tracks: ‘Fall Into Time’, ‘The Spell Of Black Affliction’, ‘Tribulation Stigmata’, ‘Evoke’ and ‘The Iconoclast’. You can listen to ‘The Spell Of Black Affliction’ here. The band commented on the material: "The aim of realising "Témoignages De La Gnose Terrestre" was a sonic catalysation of fury, alienation and inhuman psychosis. The immense slaughter of HOLODOMOR destroys thoroughly and mercilessly devastates the last remnants of coherent thoughts in the attack resembling some more excellent spells by ANGELCORPSE, SADISTIK EXEKUTION, THRONEUM or REVENGE."
