Dubai-based death metal band NERVECELL has announced their upcoming Torture Over Asia Tour 2018. Here is the official word:
“We are looking forward to kicking off our 2018 touring cycle promoting our new album Past, Present…Torture in Asia next month. Although we’ve done a few Asian tours before, this run is special considering these shows will be our first live appearances since the release of the new album, and also because it will be our first time performing in countries such as Taiwan, Vietnam and Malaysia where we have never been to before. So if you are in any of the cities we’ll be stopping by, be sure to come out and have a night of metal mayhem with us. See you there!”.
Tour dates are as follows:
5 – Pulp Summer Slam Festival – Manila, Philippines
6 – Jack’s Studio – Taipei, Taiwan
9 – Hard Rock Cafe – Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam
12 – Playspace Live – Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
7 – Bangalore Open Air – Bangalore, India
Formed in 2000 as one of the first extreme metal bands to emerge from Dubai, U.A.E. and having supported legendary metal bands such as Metallica, Morbid Angel, Deicide and Suffocation – Nervecell have become the most prominent band to arise from the Middle East and truly are the torchbearers for a Middle Eastern wave of metal. Delivering a unique blend of Middle Eastern death / thrash metal, and maintaining a reputation for highly energetic live performances, got the folks at Metal Hammer Magazine to include Nervecell as one of the “DEFENDERS OF THE FAITH” – listing the band as one of the “50 Heroes Of The New Metal Revolution” in 2011.
Nervecell independently released their first E.P. entitled “Human Chaos” in 2004. With the release of the E.P. the band opened for international metal bands Sepultura and Machine Head in Dubai at the Desert Rock Festival in 2005. The band later headlined a tour in Australia in 2007 and even performed at Metal Camp Festival in Tolmin, Slovenia that same year to promote the E.P
