One of the most unique metal labels around today has two of its bands hitting UK shores this week, as Southern Lord bands' Enabler and Martyrdod team up with headliners Rotten Sound for a short European Tour. The tour has three days in the UK, which are this coming Thursday, Friday and Saturday, including Saturday's show at The Library Pub in Leeds, a very intimate venue for what promises to be such a crushing show.
This will be Enabler's first ever European tour and the band's Jeff Lohrber is certainly excited for it. He had this to say when asked about the upcoming shows:
"It's a great honor to be sharing the stage with Rotten Sound and Martyrdod, especially on Enabler's first European tour! All three bands have something equally unique and awesome to offer the listener. If you're a fan of heavy music in general, you better be dead or dying to miss this fucking show! Come out, have a drink with us, and say goodbye to your ear drums."

If that's not enough for you Mikael Kjellman of Martyrdod recently took part in the regular Southern Lord showcase, giving an exclusive video interview where he discussed the punk scene back home in Stolkholm as well as other things. The video can be seen at the bottom of the post.
Neither Enabler nor Martyrdod are known for touring extensively so if you like your music loud, heavy and extreme you may wish to take advantage of this rare opportunity to see them (plus Rotten Sound) in some very small, intimate settings. The chance may not come round again.
