SAMAEL will in 2022 be celebrating the 25th+1 anniversary of «Passage», an album that after quarter of a century still stands as a landmark release. An highly influential album building a gap between metal, electronic and industrial, «Passage» is a milestone in the band’s career and the best selling release in the history of SAMAEL and Century Media. Come 2022, the band will be playing some shows with this legendary album performed in its entirety, including material from their other works as well. An updated production will accompany the shows.
Twenty-five years after their formation in northern Sweden, innovative blackened death metallers DIABOLICAL released their critically acclaimed concept album “Eclipse” in 2019 and toured extensively across Europe in support of it. Moving into 2021 with the intent of further bringing the „Eclipse“ experience to life across European stages, they will also bring new creations generated from the isolation and struggles of the past year. DIABOLICAL brings a profound live experience with spitting musical and aesthetic complexity swirling around a dense soundscape of excellently distilled and refined ideas, altogether forming a rare display of musical craftsmanship equaled by very few contemporary metal bands.
