Swedish melodic death quintet DARKANE has posted live footage from its recent European tour with SOILWORK. You can watch as the band performs the track "Ostracized" from its 2013 release, "The Sinister Supremacy", filmed by Philipp Koch and Oliver Laux (Drumtalk) at the Biblelot in Dordrecht, Netherlands. Says the band: "We recently completed a European tour with SOILWORK that took us through Spain, Italy, France, Luxembourg, Holland and the U.K. The tour went great and, with the two bands having previously toured together, everything went smoothly — apart from SOILWORK's drummer Dirk Verbeuren getting injured and having to sit out a few shows. Luckily, our drummer, Peter Wildoer, isn't one to back down from a challenge, so he took over the drum throne for SOILWORK's remaining gigs. Closing in on the end of the tour, Dirk felt good enough to play again, so he played the final show of the tour in Dordrecht. Spirits were high, and to make it even better, Phillip from Drumtalk showed up and asked if we wanted him to film the show. Of course we did! And he did a really nice job. DARKANE 100% live and raw. As it should be." "The Sinister Supremacy" was released in June 2013 via Massacre and Prosthetic.Regarding the album's title, the band said: "'The Sinister Supremacy' is a metaphor for the evil that controls us. It's the dark part of our minds and it’s inside us all. It tells us it's OK to do bad things, to hurt other people, and hurt ourselves. It guides us into making choices based on pure selfishness, and it thrives on complete chaos. "The cover art by Carlos Holmberg is a Rorschach test as seen by an individual who has completely succumbed to the sinister supremacy."Vocalist Jens Broman left DARKANE in August 2011 due to "personal issues." He explained in a statement, "At the moment my life is in a phase where I'm unable to find inspiration for new adventures with DARKANE and therefore it's best for me to pass on the mic."Mackrory sang on DARKANE's debut album, "Rusted Angel" (1999), and made a guest appearance on the song "Chaos vs. Order" on the band's 2002 effort "Expanding Senses".
