KAMIKABE: Bloodletting North America Tour 2013 Currently Underway

Pittsburgh technical death metal tyrants, KAMIKABE, are currently fracturing limbs and tearig ear drums on the Bloodletting North America Tour 2013 which commenced on May 3. Brought to fruition by Unique Leader, KAMIKABE are joined by headlining labelmates/French tech death metal masters, Gorod. Additional support is provided by Inanimate Existence (Unique Leader) and Vale of Pnath (Willowtip).

Comments the band: “We couldn’t be any more stoked about this tour! An opportunity to shred with Gorod in the States is not something that happens too often. Plus, adding Inanimate Existence and Vale of Pnath to the lineup, as well as several other sick bands on select dates, makes this tour that much more crushing! We’ve been sharpening our blades to destroy every city we hit. The years of hard work and support from everyone that has helped us along the way really speaks volumes for the death metal culture that we’re lucky to have!”

KAMIKABE are touring in support of their punishing Aberration Of Man long player unleashed via Unique Leader Records last Fall. Commended for a 33-run time “chock full of furious and complex, yet pristine brutality that blurs the who deathcore/tech death metal line with aplomb,” by Teeth of The Divine, the pile-driving Aberration Of Man is a reference to the inevitable demise of mankind and the confrontational sounds of societal ruination. Aberration Of Man was recorded and produced by Brette Ciamarra at Studio 344, features guest vocals and lyrics by The Faceless’ Geoff Ficco on the track, “Only the Dead Rest.”

Check out a full stream of the record on the band’s official BandCamp page HERE.

KAMIKABE play some of the rippingest, most ferocious death metal I’ve heard in some time. I’d guess that these guys would cite Spawn of Possession and Nalpalm Death as big influences, a dandy combination for fans of fast death metal.” – MetalSucks

“…a storming, riveting listen, with pummelling drum blasts and terrorizing guitars that simply drag your mind from the mires of indifference onto the battlefield of attention. When you put this on for the first time, put on your war face and get ready to roar.” — Sludgelord
