In yet further defining proof that metal is a much more widely-embraced thing in the Olde Country, comes the following:

German thrash masters KREATOR and Norwegian symphonic black metallers DIMMU BORGIR will unite on a European co-headlining run in winter 2018 dubbed “The European Apocalypse“. The tour will take place from November 30th to December 16th with support coming from U.S. hardcore institution HATEBREED and death metal supergroup BLOODBATH.

KREATOR frontman Mille Petrozza comments: “I am more than excited to team up with three of the strongest and most unique bands in today’s metal world for this killer package. For this run, we have prepared the biggest production in the history of band to bring the ultimate Kreator-experience to a hall near you. The European Apocalypse will be THE tour of 2018 and I can’t wait to see all of you in December. Hail to the Hordes!

Dimmu Borgir guitarist Silenoz adds: “It feels great to announce that we’re finally touring Europe again! It’s been a while but we can’t wait to share the Eonian energy with our fans – see you all in November and December!

HATEBREED singer Jamey Jasta also commented saying: “We’re honored & excited to share the stage with such influential and important bands. In a world where everyone seems so divided it’s important for heavy music to unify & inspire. This tour has something for everyone! Death, Black, Thrash and Crossover. Prepare to rage, see you in the pit!

With BLOODBATH guitarist Anders Nyström also adding: “We’re honored to be chosen to represent the death metal department in versatile bill of thrash metal, black metal and hardcore!
