Dan Tyrantor had this to say about the Canadian tour dates:

"Hails from the Alcoholi-kult.
Well, we just got back from our 2 shows in Canada, and they were amazing.
Oshawa and Toronto are both packed with old school Metal maniacs that know how to thrash!!!
When 'Kill For Metal' was played in Toronto on Saturday, it was just overwhelming. Every single person in the room was singing along and headbanging like mad with horns in the air.
Thanks to all that attended, eh?

Keep the Metal alive, our warriors of iron and rust.... we WILL be back!
Next stop, Tijuana, MX. I hear its alot like Toronto!"
- Dan & Usurper

USURPER would also like to thank the following people for making these Canadian dates a success:

Last week, the metal community lost a great innovator in Voivod guitarist Denis "Piggy" D'Amour. His style and experimentation led the way for many bands to follow, and he will be missed. From all in USURPER, we thank him for the inspiration, and wish him to rest in peace. Go easy man. Thanks.
