The revamped Floridian death metal legends Massacre, now known as Massacre X, have announced their upcoming live debut. It will happen on June 24th, at the Protzen Open Air festival in Protzen, Germany. Additional shows will take place later in the year.
Massacre X (the “X” represents the band’s tenth lineup) features former Massacre members Rick Rozz DeLillo (guitar) and Kam Lee (vocals), alongside Rozz‘s The End bandmates Michael Grim (bass, vocals) and Mike Mazzonetto (drums).
This incarnation plans to play the band’s ‘From Beyond‘ album, along with a few old classics from Death and the pre-Death outfit Mantas.
Massacre‘s last incarnation included Rozz and Mazzonetto, with bassist Terry Butler and vocalist Ed Webb. That lineup lasted for four years and released a critically acclaimed album, 2014’s ‘Back From Beyond‘, via Century Media Records.
