skull MONSTROSITY LATIN AMERICAN TOUR 2010 PRESS RELEASE

Floridas MONSTROSITY have arrived in Lima Peru to begin their "Latin American Tour 2010".

While currently writing material for the follow up to their 2007 release Spiritual Apocalypse MONSTROSITY have been preparing a blistering live setlist to devastate all who come across their path. Celebrating almost 20 years of existence MONSTROSITY have had several well known death metal luminaries through their ranks including most notably original vocalist and frontman George Corpsegrinder" Fisher, currently of CANNIBAL CORPSE fame. The band have soldiered on and are still creating the madness that fans have loved since their debut album Imperial Doom (1992). MONSTROSITY have created timeless classics, one after another, including Millennium (1996), In Dark Purity (1999), Rise To Power (2003), and culminating in their finest work yet on the 2007 release Spiritual Apocalypse. The band has cemented a solid reputation on the international touring scene having played in places like Guatemala, Colombia, Peru, Mexico, Puerto Rico, as well as numerous tours of the US and Europe. This latest South American trek continues the bands tradition of bringing their metal to the far reaches of the globe by playing a show in the earthquake ravaged city of Concepion, Chile.

MONSTROSITY drummer and founding member had this to say of the bands current status:

¨We´re just now really starting to get going on writing a new record. We´ve had numerous tours to support Spiritual Apocalypse and our fans know by now we like to take our time and create albums that are unique in their own right and not thrown together like so many of our counterparts. We´ve got a few solid ideas together so its just a matter of just continuing on the path were on. As for the summer run we are doing, I think it will be really cool to get back down to South America and show them we can do this better than ever. We will be hitting some places we ve never been to so we recommend you come see this tour!! Playing in Concepion, Chile should be killer too since they probably haven´t had a metal show down there since the earthquake. We will be heading to Europe for some festival shows as well so look for us on the Party San and Brutal Assault stages this August!!!

skull 6.27.06 Update


Just to catch everyone up to date.... The Europe tour was killer. We had a great time and played all 33 shows of the tour without any show cancellations. Criss-crossing from one side of Europe to the other and then back again was definitely awesome. It was great meeting everyone and hope to get back there as soon as we wrap up the recording of the new record. We have been writing and things are coming along. We will be posting some pre-production demos of the new material on our myspace page soon so watch for that. Probably sooner than later so check it out!! If you still haven't seen the videos we have uploaded on our myspace page then check them out too because they are pretty cool also. One is from Brazil and the other is from Paris.

We are endorsed by Framus Amps and Warwick Bass amps now. They sent us some gear and the stuff sounds pretty cool. We've never been gear whores but we tried this stuff out and its pretty killer. Working on some drum endorsements as well....

We are announcing our appearance at the HELLFIRE MANIFEST this year in Huntsville Alabama on August 26th, 2006. We will be playing on Saturday alongside Hallows Eve, Hellwitch, Quinta Essentia, and more... (check out the flyer at www.hellfiremanifest.com) We are working on some other US shows as well so stayed tuned to our official site (www.monstrosity.us) as well as our myspace site (www.myspace.com/monstrosity1) for updates regarding the new album and upcoming shows. We've updated the merch page as well.

Alumni of the band include George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher, Pat O'brien, Rob Barrett, of Cannibal Corpse as well as Tony Norman from Morbid Angel/ Terrorizer who has now been officially replaced in Monstrosity by Mark English. The band also welcome to the fold new vocalist Brian Werner who will only add to the growing legacy. The band is rounded out by band leader/founder Lee Harrison on drums, guitarist Sam Molina and bassist Mike Poggione who happens to be featured in the bass corner segment of this months issue of Pit Magazine.
