The European shows are going ahead!!

Thriving in the face of adversity and despite a conflict that has ravaged their country for several weeks, extreme metallers OATH TO VANQUISH are now set to proceed to travel out of Lebanon and play shows around Europe next week.

The band have been confirmed to take part in the Images of the Middle East Festival (IOME) taking place in Denmark , but at one point, as the situation in their home country deteriorated, the whole trek looked doomed.

Commented guitarist/vocalist Elias van Quish: "Some truly terrible things have happened here, which I can't bring myself to get into now. However, I do wish to express my utmost respect and gratitude to the people of the IOME whom have shown such faith and dedication in making these shows happen, even when the world was falling apart around us! Now, we're looking forward to pounding those Danish audiences into deathmetal pulp!!"

Additional shows in Germany and Sweden have now been added to the band's European trek, full list of dates:

Aug. 30 - Copenhagen, DEN @ Ungdomshuset (w/STALK OF DEATH)
Aug. 31 - Roskilde, DEN @ Gimle (w/SYGDOM)
Sep. 01 - Odense, DEN @ Badstuen (w/NAYLED, CODEX)
Sep. 02 - Eisleben, GER @ Wiesenhaus (w/MY INSANITY, MATARA)
Sep. 07 - Malmö, SWE @ Cutting Edge (w/ARSONIST, BODY CORE)

The IOME, organized by the Danish Centre for Culture and Development (DCCD) focuses on contemporary culture and aims to bring to light the cultural changes which are taking place in the Middle East. Commented the DCCD: "...DCCD and the partners still wish to continue the last preparations for the festival, it is because we feel that the festival is even more important now than ever."

OATH TO VANQUISH's debut album "Applied Schizophrenic Science" was mixed and mastered by Colin Davis (VILE) and was released via Grindethic Records this month.
