news heavy metal dark tranquillity kataklysm nailed to obscurity black death


Swedish melodic death metal pioneers, Dark Tranquillity, have been forced to cancel the Canadian dates on their North American Moments 2022 Tour, on which the band are joined by special guests Kataklysm and Nailed To Obscurity.

Says Dark Tranquillity: "We are very sad announcing that due to the Covid restrictions in Canada we are not able to do our shows in Quebec, Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto. Things are moving fast and just after recording this video we got news that Vancouver also need to be cancelled this time around.
We are extremely frustrated since Canada is one of our favourite places on earth to perform. We will make sure to come back and do this properly as soon as possible.

"This creates a gap in our schedule and we have been offered to do the following shows instead:

Feb 03 - Fort Wayne
Feb 04 -  Cudahy

The rest of the tour is unaffected. All ticket details available at darktranquillity.com."

Moment is Dark Tranquillity’s triumphant return after over four years since their Swedish Grammy-nominated album, Atoma, but the time between was creative, innovative, and adventurous. With the new release, the band won a Swedish Grammy and welcomed two top-tier guitarists - Christopher Amott (ex-Arch Enemy) and Johan Reinholdz (Nonexist). Moment is a stunning cluster of songs that not only push Dark Tranquillity’s boundaries outward but also strongly typify the Swedes’ sonic fingerprint. Recorded at Nacksving Studios and Rogue Music by Martin Brändström and then mixed/mastered by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios, Moment is a riveting yet challenging journey from start to finish.
