While there’s talk of a COVID vaccine on the horizon, the future of live music remains unsure. But that’s not going to stop Polish satanic death metallers Behemoth, who today announced that they’ve already got a tour ready for fall of 2021, with Swedish melodic death metal crew Arch Enemy and British gore gods Carcass coming along for the ride.

The tour stars in the UK, and then moves out to broader Europe. Also on this jaunt will be goth-metallers Unto Others (formerly known as Idle Hands).

“After more than a year’s break from live music, we can think of no better homecoming to our beloved Legions than delivering to you a performance of new music and an event for the ages: ‘The European Siege’ — a crushing combination of Carcass, Arch Enemy and Behemoth,” says Behemoth frontman Nergal. “We also proudly present the uniquely brilliant, Unto Others who will warmly welcome you to this night of metal magic!”
