In 2021, Samael will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of « Passage », an album that after quarter of a century still stands as a landmark release. An highly influential album building a gap between metal, electronic and industrial, « Passage » is a milestone in the band’s career and the best selling release in the history of Samael and Century Media.
In September and October 2021, the band will be playing some shows in 18 countries with this legendary album performed in its entirety, including material from their other works as well. They will make a stop in Luxembourg at the Kulturfabrik on October 4th.
Diabolical from Sweden will be supporting Samael on all the dates. Twenty-five years after their formation in northern Sweden, blackened death metallers Diabolical released their critically acclaimed concept album « Eclipse » in 2019. The band brings a profound live experience with spitting musical and aesthetic complexity swirling around a dense soundscape of excellently distilled and refined ideas, altogether forming a rare display of musical craftsmanship equaled by very few contemporary metal bands.
