THORNAFIRE To Open for Slayer at the World Painted Blood Tour
On June 2nd, 2011, Chilean death metallers THORNAFIRE have the distinct honor of warming up the stage for the almighty SLAYER when the trash titans bring their World Painted Blood Tour to South America. Understandably, the band is marking this occasion as a huge moment in their career as guitarist Victor Mac-Namara reflects in the following statement,
“We are very happy as musicians and fans to be part in the scenario of a Slayer concert, and opening for them in our city.The truth is that I don´t have many words to talk about it, I can only say that we will unleash our fury and vibe on stage with our sharp axes and drums to evoke the somber cry of death. In short, we hope to leave the stage like shit, but leave at least the electrical system working for Slayer to finally crush this masochistic audience with their classic tyranny.”
The announcement of this high-profile gig comes as the band is currently working hard on the anticipated follow up to 2009’s Vorex Deconstrucción. In a previously released statement regarding the forthcoming album, Mac-Namara commented, “Currently we are writing music a little different than what we have done in the past. It’s a variation, but still true to our underground Death Metal underground roots. I’m drawing concepts for the album artwork. We hope to have this released by 2012.”
In other THORNAFIRE news, the video for “Deconstruccion” can be viewed at this location. The clip was filmed, produced and edited by Daniel Duarte (a member of the fellow Chilean death metal act EXECRATOR) in a professional TV studio in Santiago.
“Deconstruccion” was previously described by THORNAFIRE bassist/vocalist Alexis Munoz as a “futuristic song inspired by the religious and social decline experienced in the current era Eon oh Hourus.”
“Deconstruccion” comes off THORNAFIRE’s second album, Vorex Deconstrucción, which came out in July 2009 via Ibex Moon Records and is currently available via the label’s webstore.
THORNAFIRE’s Vorex Deconstrucción was released in July of 2009 on Ibex Moon Records. The band’s previous release, Exacerbated Gnostic Manifestation, is also available through Ibex Moon.
