Two of Europe’s most revered metal bands are set to combine forces to bring their European Siege 2021 tour to the old continent in Autumn 2021. Sweden’s Arch Enemy and Poland’s Behemoth are joining together for these special dates, bringing their longtime friends and metal legends Carcass in the special guest slot. Opening the evening’s thunderous proceedings will be hotly-tipped gothic metal newcomers, Unto Others (formerly known as Idle Hands).
Arch Enemy’s founder and guitarist, Michael Amott informs us, ”As we’ve been going through these troubled and challenging times lately, I think we all need something to look forward to. A reason to believe, right? Well….this is it!! The European Siege tour, featuring Arch Enemy, Behemoth, Carcass and Unto Others is undoubtedly the ultimate Metal tour of 2021 – see you there!”
Arch Enemy are continuing to work on their 11th studio album, the follow up to 2017’s “Will To Power” and these shows will be their first dates since their slot as special guests on Amon Amarth’s Beserker touring spectacle in 2019.
Behemoth’s frontman and creative visionary Nergal mirrors Amott’s sentiment, “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. We also proudly present the uniquely brilliant, Unto Others who will warmly welcome you to this night of metal magic!”
