World Management and Morbid Angel would like to announce the 20th Anniversary of Covenant--United States Tour 1993-2013. The tour is to be a celebration by the Masters of Chaos of their legendary biggest selling release, the album “Covenant."
In 1992, Morbid Angel was the first Extreme Death Metal band to be signed to a major label (Giant Records / Warner Brothers) and "Covenant" was to be their first release on that label in the USA. The album was released on June 22, 1993 and went on to garner great critical and commercial success.
On tour, the band will play the “Covenant” album in it’s entirety and after a short intermission some additional surprise classic cuts.
Further, there will be special commemorative items produced exclusively for this tour.
A Vision Grotesque
1995: Steve, Jeremy, and Joseph start jamming together.
2004: After a stretch of years of being apart Jeremy, Joseph and Steve form a band and call it Art of Dying. They record their first demo later that year.
2005: The band plays it's first show in January as a three piece
and continues to play shows consistently. Matt Thomas joins the band to take on bass guitar duties.
The band records its first CD "Homicide Utopia". Later in the year Tina Rock Vegas joins the fold on second guitar, giving the band a full lineup.
2006: The band continues to perform with a vengeance and records another demo as a 5 piece.
Due to pending legal action the band name changes to A Vision Grotesque.
In March of that year the band is featured on SERIES DVD vol. 4.
2007: Tina parts ways with the band, AVG signs with
Room Temperature Records and records their first label release album "King of the Massacre".
The band recruits former Crucible of the Damned guitarist Chuck Endsley to fill Tina's spot. "King of the Massacre" is released in May.
Since 2007 the band has released 2 albums, "Waking up to Hell" and "Metaphysical Hypnosis". Both albums were recorded and produced by Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me, Human Abstract)
In early 2011 Daniel Quinn (Beneath the Shadows) was recruited as the full time bassist to fill the spot Matt Thomas left a year earlier.
In the summer of 2011 Chuck decides to leave the band for good and Ron Dalton (Nephilim/Beneath the Shadows) was recruited to permanently fill the guitarist spot.
A Vision Grotesque has been fortunate enough to play with bands from Road Runner, Metalblade, Prosthetic, Solidstate, Life Force and Tribunal Records.
Columns formed in 2003 as an instrumental act with Jason Skipper on drums, Jake Wade on bass, and Jake Troth on guitar. The band didn't have a singer because they couldn't find one. In 2004, Adam Cody from the band Glass Casket joined as vocalist. In 2006, they released a 3 song self-titled EP. Shortly after, Jake Troth left the band to go to school. After a short hiatus, John Stone joined and they recorded a 5 song EP in 2008. Stone left in 2009, and the band played a few shows with fill-in guitar player Sam Fleming (Zeus/Exploding Horse) for the next year.
The 7 song album "Just Another Species" was recorded in 2010 with Skipper handling the guitar duties. Michael Lehmann, guitarist from legendary gore-grinders Hemdale, played guest guitar on a couple of the tracks. In 2011, Lehmann joined the band.
