Obscura - Join Relapse Contamination Tour 2009

Origin, Skinless, Obscura, Man Must Die and Antigama will join forces for the first-ever European edition of the legendary "Relapse Records Contamination Tour". The tour will bring extremity as only Relapse Records can provide to the UK and Europe in an extensive four week run.

Tour spearhead Origin recently issued their new full-length "Antithesis" to massive worldwide acclaim! Widely thought of as one of the most brutal and technical death metal bands in the world, Origin return to stake their claim as the leaders of metal's new wave of extremity. Faster, heavier, and decidedly more advanced than anyone could have ever envisioned the genre becoming, "Antithesis" is a modern day death metal classic which proves Origin stand head and shoulders above their peers. Infamous New York death metal destroyers Skinless will co-headline the bill and bring their patented brand of chaos back to Europe for the first time in years. Widely-regarded as one of the best live death metal bands in the world with their slamming death metal grooves and hell-bent commitment to fun, Skinless will be previewing new material from their forthcoming new album as well as delivering all the crushing hits from their previous four full-lengths.

The newest addition to the Relapse family, Germany's technical metal masters Obscura boast a lineup packed with ex-members of such legendary bands as Pestilence and Necrophagist. Obscura's forthcoming Relapse debut "Cosmogenesis" (coming March 2009), might very well be THE death metal record of 2009 and will more than justify the bands already impressive pedigree. Prepare to be amazed! Scotland's metal wrecking crew Man Must Die, the first-ever UK band signed to Relapse, will release their new full-length"No Tolerance For Imperfection" in April 2009. The band previously turned heads in '07 and '08 with their Relapse debut "The Human Condition" and tours alongside heavyweights such as Misery Index, Despised Icon, Hate Eternal, Kataklysm, Cephalic Carnage and more. Poland's progressive grindcore quartet Antigama will release their new full-length in March 2009. The follow-up to the bands critically-acclaimed debut "Resonance", the new album will undoubtedly see the band push their off-kilter grind attack to new sonic levels.

The "Relapse Records Contamination Tour" is an institution in North America and has been a vehicle used to expose some of its newest and most exciting bands over the course of the label's 17-year history. Previous "Contamination Tours" have included bands such as Mastodon, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Neurosis, Nile, High On Fire, Cephalic Carnage, Coalesce, Origin, Misery Index, and many, many more.
