ARTILLERY To Kick Off North American Thrash Invasion Tour

1102Denmark thrash metal veterans, ARTILLERY, will kick off their first ever North American tour today. Joined by Onslaught and Striker, the trek will commence at Saint Vitus in Brooklyn, New York and weave its way through thirty cities before coming to a close at The Whisky in Hollywood, California on November 26th.

Guitarist Michael Stützer comments: “One of ARTILLERY’s biggest goals way back since the early demo days in 1982 has been to tour USA/Canada. After a few shows in the USA, playing at Maryland Deathfest, Barge To Hell and Saint Vitus in New York we are finally doing our first full North American tour! We can’t wait to play songs from our new album Legions together with old classic songs like ‘Terror Squad‘ and ‘Khomaniac!’ Join The Legions!”

ARTILLERY is one of Europe’s earliest and most important exponents of thrash metal, and the band’s contribution to the bourgeoning genre is difficult to ignore. The Danish quartet successfully managed to fuse an abrasive brutality with technicality and strong melodies, with the noteworthy guitar leads of the Stützer-brothers serving as highlights. Listen to music and watch videos from “Legions” now at metalblade.com/artillery.

ARTILLERY formed in the Copenhagen suburb of Taastrup, Denmark in 1982 by Michael and Morten Stützer. Since then the band has gone through numerous lineup shifts and gave released six studio offerings. The first period of ARTILLERY’s existence gave the world the three classic albums – Fear Of Tomorrow, Terror Squad and By Inheritance — featuring some of the finest moments of thrash metal Europe has ever put out.

ARTILLERY are doing what they were surely born to do, namely hurling impressively intricate, ridiculously tight thrash anthems from every direction, they are still unstoppable.” — Terrorizer Magazine

“…one of the best thrash metal albums this year…” — Iron Fist Magazine

“The songwriting talent on display is formidable, and all the instruments turn potentially routine passages into extra appendages that work always in the band’s favor.” — MetalSucks.net

“…this new album proves that they’re still fighting on, with no end to the war for thrash metal in sight.” —NewNoiseMagazine.com
