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!!!

The band has already finished a US tour and more shows are in the planning stages to coincide with the release. The band hail from Bogota, Colombia, but are currently residing in Wisconsin. The release will contain cover art by Jacek Wisniewski who also handles artwork for Vader among others. Underthreat dominate the metal scene in Columbia. SA and will now unleash their amazing 12 song album on the world. We expect "Behind Mankind's Disguise" to strike down all opposition with hammering drums, thick and fiery guitars and demonized vocal growls and to be one of Conquest's best releases.

Monstrosity has been taking a "breather" following the highly successful "Enslaving Europe 2002" tour. The tour brought Monstrosity to 12 European countries including headlining the 10 show "Thrash 'em all" festival tour of Poland. The band was also featured on the cover of "Thrash 'Em All" magazine which is Polands premier metal magazine. The band has had a busy year touring: Mexico, Brazil, US, Europe and Poland. The band plan to re-convene after the new year to finish work on the follow up to IDP. A video has been completed for the song "Destroying Divinity" which was originally filmed in 1999. The director dissapeared with the tapes in '99 but were recently recovered and edited by drummer Lee Harrison. The band is has not determined how the video will see release, though it is probable it will be released on DVD or as bonus CD rom material on future releases.
