Metal trio Diamond Plate, who hail from Chicago, have confirmed a US tour with Bay Area thrash monsters Hatchet. The America Under Plague tour kicks off in Tulsa, Oklahoma on 11th April, just days after Diamond Plate wrap up their current five-week US tour with East Of The Wall.  Also appearing on the America Under Plague tour are Colorado power metallers Cellador.

While most of their peers were listening to and playing to the “core” US-based bands, the members of Starkill spent their days cutting their chops to European metal – and the band makes no qualms about wearing their influences on their sleeves. Inspired by the likes of early Children Of Bodom à la the now classic Hatebreeder and Follow The Reaper, in addition to Nightwish, Amon Amarth, Dimmu Borgir and Dragonforce, Starkill aims to pay homage to these acts, while also putting their own spin on Euro-metal – and their new album, Fires of Life, does just that.
