Controversial Swedish metal band SHINING and Canadian chaos extremists REVENGE have announced a North American tour. The “No More Safe Space” tour begins on May 5 in Baltimore andruns until May 24. A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.
The “No Safe Space Tour” will be SHINING’s first North American headlining tour and also REVENGE’s first tour since their appearance on 2015’s epic ‘Black Metal Warfare’ tour.
SHINING is one of Sweden’s leading black metal bands, and founder/vocalist Niklas Kvarforth continues to be one of heavy metal’s most notorious Agent Provocateurs. Kvarforth incites as much consternation among the “true” as he does fanaticism among the soon-to-be soiled minds of his growing legions of devotees. His antics, opinions, and sometimes mere presence is accompanied by the gnashing teeth and wailing, tone-deaf opinions of the self-proclaimed genre “elite”.
Formed in 2000 by J. Read, REVENGE is universally regarded as one of the most brutal and barbaric bands in the black metal underground. A savage live force, REVENGE has built a die-hard world-wide following among the most extreme factions of of the Black and Death metal scenes.
SHINING are touring in support of ‘IX – Everyone, Everything, Everywhere, Ends’. An epic, unmissable beast of an album, ‘IX – Everyone, Everything, Everywhere, Ends’ delivers nothing less than a lethal dose of perception-shattering madness from one of black metal’s most polarizing bands. Stream the album here.
REVENGE will set the USA ablaze touring in support of their newest album, ‘Behold.Total.Rejection’ ‘Behold.Total.Rejection’ is arguably the most fervent release and a manifesto of rejection – rejection of the groundswell of mediocrity within the scene, rejection of compromise as a means of embracing of a wider audience, rejection of the dogma and strictures of religion and the trappings of the feeble social slave. ‘Behold.Total.Rejection’ is a torrential barrage of relentless animosity. No scene. No brotherhood. No remorse.
The album is streaming in full here.
