We are very excited to announce Charles Elliott of ABYSMAL DAWN/BEREFT, as the first vocalist for the DEATH TO ALL TOUR 2012. Charles is an amazing singer, as well as guitarist, and we feel he will do these songs justice. Don't miss him on tour, shredding on DEATH classics with his Revolver and V-Hawk guitars. This 5 city tour will feature a majority of DEATH's amazing musicians, as well as special guests, celebrating the life and music of Chuck Schuldiner, as well as to raise awareness of Sweet Relief Musicians Fund – a charity that provides financial assistance to career musicians faced with illness, disability or age-related problems.

The project featuring ABYSMAL DAWN frontman Charles Elliott, Sacha Dunable (Intronaut/Graviton), Derek Rydquist (ex-The Faceless), and Derek Donley (National Sunday Law/Graviton) is about to release it's debut on April 24 via The End Records. Leichenhaus (“Mortuary” in German) is a conceptual album thematically revolving around a waiting mortuary, as doomy and miserable as its subject matter would suggest. And given that it sounds like absolutely nothing that any of its members have worked on before, makes it very interesting. Check out the new track “The Coldest Orchestra” below, featuring Charles' Sustainer-enhanced Revolver and V-Hawk guitars.
