metal alliance 2016A few days ago, we got some leaked information regarding the Metal Alliance tour’s lineup for its comeback this year and it was just a matter of time to be able to confirm that information and it seems like the information was right.

The tour has officially confirm the bands it will boast on this year’s run and they include the previously announced Dying Fetus, The Acacia Strain, Jungle Rot and Black Crown Initiate, with the support of Nylithia and Reaping Asmodea in selected dates.

If you remember what happened last year, the tour went through many issues that forced them to drop Swedish death metal legends Entombed A.D. as a headliner due to some financial issues which eventually lead to the cancellation of the entire tour under the Metal Alliance name. That may probably explain why this year the lineup has a more modest approach and booked mainly domestic bands. If things go well this year, we may see a more ambitious lineup for next year.
