Line-up is changing: BARREN EARTH for KYPCK published 8 years, 2 months ago
Finnish band KYPCK has cancelled all their summer shows including BA festival. Here is their official statement: “We unfortunately have to cancel our performance at this year's Brutal Assault. The circumstances regarding the band, our new record company and our new album are chaotic to say the least, and we feel it is better to cancel now than 2 days before the festival when flights, hotels etc. would have already been paid for. We deeply apologize to the organizers and everyone who was looking forward to the show.”
KYPCK is dead, long live the BARREN EARTH! Finnish “all-stars” group, comprised of members of other bands like SWALLOW THE SUN, AMORPHIS or MOONSORROW, will present their debut album called „Curse of the Red River“ which is a progressive epic that draws you in and holds you by the head while it transitions through atmospheric, brutal, melodic passages that massage the ear and punch the gut.
