THIS GIFT IS A CURSE announce Swedish and Japanese tour dates


Swedish black metal force THIS GIFT IS A CURSE have announced a tour of Sweden and Japan. The tour, which begins on March 16 in Stockholm, and sees the band traveling to Tokyo on April 15. A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.

Regarding the tour, the band comments: “Going to Japan has always been one of our greatest dreams and something we already had as a goal when we started this band. Now this vision is coming true. It will certainly be something very special and we are really looking forward on unleashing our very own blend of chaos towards new audiences. We will play the best of our old material as well as newly written pieces.  Prepare for tar, blood and complete sonic darkness. All hail the Swinelord!” 

THIS GIFT IS A CURSE is touring in support of their latest album, ‘All Hail the Swinelord’. The album, which is being called “a standing example of what black metal as a whole should represent” (CvltNation), and “infernal cacophony…Rarely has the phrase “extreme music” been as apt as it is here” (MetalSucks) is available across multiple CD and LP formats at the Season of Mist E-Shop, and streaming in full at the band’s official Bandcamp Page.

The artwork and track list for “All Hail the Swinelord” can be found below:

1. Swinelord
2. New Temples
3. Rites
4. XI: For I Am The Fire
5. Hanging Feet
6. Old Lies
7. We Use Your Dead As Vessels
8. Askrådare

Regarding the themes of the new album, the band comments:

“The name of the record is “All Hail the Swinelord”, and the record itself is a thematic album about the self-inflicted process of dehumanization and the loss of all notions of what we consider existence. A metaphysical and ritual guideline for the crossing of the final threshold. Into the shadows, to touch His black crown… ”
