Sick Drummer Magazine and Perseverance Holdings Ltd. have announced the Death To All Tour 2012 in benefit of Sweet Relief. This five-city tour will feature a majority of DEATH's amazing musicians, as well as special guests. This tour is to celebrate the life and music of Chuck Schuldiner, as well as to raise awareness of Sweet Relief Musicians Fund – a charity that provides financial assistance to career musicians faced with illness, disability or age-related problems.

This tour will kick off in San Francisco, CA and work its way to Orlando, FL - stopping in Los Angeles, Chicago and New York along the way.




The drums will be handled by Gene Hoglan (Individual Thought Patterns/Symbolic) and Sean Reinert (Human). On bass will be Steve DiGiorgio (Human/Individual Thought Patterns) and Scott Clendenin (The Sound of Perseverance). Guitar duties will be shared by Paul Masvidal (Human), Shannon Hamm (The Sound of Perseverance) and Bobby Koelble (Symbolic).

From reading other threads here. This whole tour is a conspiracy and the vocalist has already been decided before it was announced.

If you're thinking about going, email them, because they put you on a mailing list and will send you the ticket info when they make it available. I don't think this is the sort of thing you would want to miss out on because you found out too late.

The last thing we need is Rick Rozz on there beating off his Floyd Rose and Bill Andrews fluttering on the bass pedals and getting off time. Depending on when this is, Autopsy may be doing shows so Chris Reifert can't make it.

From the Death FB page:

a) Terry is out of the country with Obituary; b) John Hand was never in DEATH for more than a few weeks & didn't play on SBG; c) Kam Lee can fuck off; d) Rick may very well be a guest in Orlando; e) AUTOPSY may play SF (or even more); f) 20% is plenty considering the extremely ridiculous cost of puttin on this five days across America tour

and

Craig McIntyre: I am a lawyer for AUTOPSY, dude, and I can assure you Chris will be involved in some way.

Seventhzealot
03-20-2012, 05:03 PM
OK - here is the FIRST of the guitarist/vocalists we've chosen for DEATH TO ALL: Charles Elliott from Abysmal Dawn. Not only is he our friend, but on a personal level he's a dedicated fan of Chuck...and that is what we were after - all of us. I hope everyone will; support this project, for the sake of the charity. :)

Eric Schuldiner from the official Death page. So seems like they wanted someone who was a fan of the legacy of Death rather than a famous old school name. Anyway he is just the first of a few more to be announced, I'd think.

I bet they'll get Stephen Kummerer to do some vocals (along with guitar) since he worships Death.

It was hard for me not to say anything actually. I promised Hannes I wouldn't say a word. But yeah I knew about this Death tour (So sad it's not coming to Minnesota, there was talks of it) and Summer Slaughter. (Dates are not finalized yet, that's why there is no dates announced yet.)

On Monday and Tuesday during my apocalypse of band interviews (the Black Daliah Murder tour and Metal Alliance are playing in St. Paul on two consecutive nights) I'll try to find out any more information that I can.



EDIT, I just realized I should mention this. No I don't know who else is on the tour besides those that are announced and Obscura. Obscura was the first band asked to join Summer Slaughter that's how I knew about it back in October. There's only a couple more bands to be announced, I think.

I get the fact that he was never in the real Death. But is there really a need for the "fuck off"? Maybe I just don't know the whole story.

Most likely for comments like this:

On the "Infernal Death" demo, things started to change a little bit. Chuck not only wrote the two songs 'Baptized In Blood' and 'Arch Angel', he also took over the vocals on those tracks... Was the response on them better than on your other songs or what caused the change that was about to come?
"Chuck wanted to be the center of attention... He couldn't stand it that all the little whores wanted to suck my cock and not his... So he wanted some of those sluts lusting for his boy sausage as well! So he decided to start singing... i don't know - you tell me who is the better vocalist, the original or the rip off?!"

After that you left DEATH - for what reasons?
"Chuck's ego was too big for the both of us!"

But you re-joined with Chuck a little later for a two months period again. Tell us more about that and why you left again at the end of '84, beginning of '85 to join MASSACRE.
"I did? How the fuck do you remember this shit... you must have a time portal that you look through every night that lets you see events from 16 years ago or something! I just remember leaving death cause Chuck was a real wanker and an asshole, and that was it... Later i relocated to Tampa, FL. and there i joined with massacre!"

What kind of vocal style did MASSACRE's original singer have? Was it already any similar to what you were doing at the time?
"He was a pussy faggot wimp singer like that poser shit anthrax singer!"

Why did he not work out? As far as I know, MASSACRE only played two shows with him, so...
"Cause he sucked hairy monkey balls and did vocals like a faggot girlyboy!"

Just looking at tickets, convenience fees for 2 come out to $19, and if you want physical tickets mailed instead of print at home it's an extra $5. Kind of sick that promoters are still cashing in on a benefit show when that extra money could be going toward the cause.

For Death, i'd say you should start with the album "Symbolic", but that's only because it's my favorite one. Everything they've put out is at least great, so anything that gets suggested to you is a good answer.

I don't know too much about Athiest, I have their discography but have never really given it much attention besides "Piece of Time" which is solid IMO

I'm surprised they weren't able to move the shows to smaller venues. Two weeks is short notice, but there really weren't any places around that could book the shows? It just seems weird to have two dates rescheduled for a half a year away when it's a special tour like this. They might as well turn it into a second leg with a few more dates, or maybe bring it to Europe.

detuned
06-20-2012, 04:12 AM
smaller venues would bring down the overall cost for sure, but probably still not enough to make up for the lack of sales and warrant the travel costs to those dates. says right in the statement they could add more shows if possible, so i would hope that not only do these shows get rescheduled in more appropriate venues, but that any added dates are concentrated to the south to lower travel expenses.

TO ALL DTA VIP TICKET HOLDERS: unfortunately, talks have broken down between us and the two Sick Drummer guys who organized the tour, and it doesn't look like there shall be a CD. There was never going to be an LP - that was a mistake in the first place - but the CD has been an issue that remained up in the air, barely getting off the drawing board. Now it looks like they can't fulfill that commitment to all of you. So what should y'all do? If you feel a partial refund is in order, I would encourage you to write to them at ian@sickdrummermagazine.com to work it out. ERIC

For now I am doing my best to keep my lips closed - it is fucking very difficult for me...I want so badly to tell all...a story to tell.

"On September 3, Gun Shy Assassin was the only site to report about the mounting tensions between the Death camp and the organizers of the Death To All Tour.

In short, Greif was booted as an administrator for the tour’s Facebook page, after trying to respond to complaints from several fans wondering when their various VIP merch orders would be filled.

Since our report, we’ve heard a number of unconfirmed rumors about musicians on the tour not getting paid, and that refunds for cancelled shows have not been provided to ticket holders.

Yesterday, Greif confirmed exclusively to GSA that, indeed, there have been some “very horrific matters” that have come to light recently regarding the Death To All Tour, and that numerous promises were not kept.

From what we understand, Sick Drummer Magazine — the organizers of the tour — is responsible for all of the turmoil.

Greif promised yesterday that he will be going on the record exclusively with Gun Shy Assassin in the very near future to discuss the situation, and provide full details of Sick Drummer magazine’s involvement.

Stay tuned for more details.

On September 3, we reported that Greif took to Facebook, writing, “Hmmm… I have been removed as an admin for the DEATH TO ALL Facebook page. Perhaps because I have mentioned on there that folks should write to the two Sick Drummer Magazine guys (who organized the tour) for refunds or to inquire about merch? This leads me to some interesting observations…”

We will be keeping you posted on Facebook, too. Follow us."

Kelly Shaefer posted on Facebook 2 hours ago that he still hasn't been paid so fuck only knows what the deal is. Hopefully everything gets taken care of for everyone involved.


Sick Drummers statement.

We can assure you that everyone on the tour has received full or partial payment and we have entered into individual agreements to resolve all payments remaining. As far as Sweet Relief is concerned, they will receive the full amount that was originally pledged, based on the agreement we have in place with them. We are the only ones to walk away from this tour making nothing and that's fine with us. We lost money on the tour and to imply otherwise is simply false.

From the Death (Official) Facebook page:

OK - I guess I shall now do a press release of my own on what actually happened with Sick Drummer Magazine and the DEATH TO ALL Tour (tomorrow). Stuff like the fact they never gave the charity Sweet Relief ONE PENNY, despite claiming that 20% of ticket sales & merch would go straight to Sweet Relief - they owe close to $30K and think a promise to pay somehow puts them in the clear! Or that they gave a bit of cash to the musicians and then handed them all bouncing checks in Orlando. Or that they never paid a nickel to us (the Schuldiners). Or that they haven't given ten cents to the booking agency. Oh, and they owe the crew money, too. They refused to relinquish their 'claim' on the name DEATH TO ALL. How mega pathetic - and all in Chuck's name. This has been an awful time. :( ERIC

Now, here’s Greif’s full response:

“It is with profound regret that I must clarify the reality of the Death To All Tour, now that rumors are in full swing and Sick Drummer Magazine has issued a statement at their zine. First, I must thank the musicians and crew for making this such a wondrous experience for the fans. The Schuldiners & I were tremendously proud of how much Chuck’s spirit was captured by these nine seasoned pros on stage. What events these five shows were! So it should be clear that, on the surface, Death To All was an awesome experience for me as a fan, as the former manager of Death, and as the person legally entrusted with guarding Chuck’s legacy.

“I was approached by Anton Hefele of Grind Percussion LLC (who go by the business name Sick Drummer Magazine) with the enticing premise of he & his partner Ian Macdonald organizing such an historic tour, and I was asked to designate the charity of our choice. The Schuldiners & I endorse Sweet Relief (sweetrelief.org), so that was simple. I was assured by others whom I trusted that Sick Drummer was a legit organization and could pull the tour off. In fact, they themselves stated clearly that they had all contingencies sorted out to handle any & all tour outcomes, like any legit folks in the metal music business would. They guaranteed musician & crew salaries, worked the gig bookings out with The Pantheon Agency, and after some wrangling did a licensing contract with us at Perseverance Holdings Ltd. that would see compensation going to the Schuldiner family for the use of Chuck’s songs & the prestige of the Death name & logo. The biggest commitment they made, however, was that 20% of every ticket and merch item sold would go straight to Sweet Relief. This was the crux of why we’d allow this tour to happen under Chuck’s name.

“I trusted in these two guys from Sick Drummer Magazine. So did Jane Schuldiner, Beth Schuldiner and Chris Steele. So did the musicians. So did the Death fans. After rocky negotiations produced an 11th hour contract, including their cancelling of shows in Atlanta and Dallas (that they had added after the first five), we still gave them the benefit of the doubt. I was on the entire tour and witnessed first hand the organizational confusion and the financial incompetence, as did every musician. Clearly I knew there was no way they would be able to afford all of what they were obligated to pay, even despite sold out venues and purchased merch flying out the door. The sharp pain of worry in my gut was only eased by the thought that they had promised they could handle any outcome. I was wrong.

“I discovered within a month of the tour finishing that each musician, beyond a bit of cash given during the five dates, was handed a worthless check in Orlando, signifying most of their pay. I found that the same applied to the crew. Perseverance Holdings Ltd. was unpaid. The booking agency was unpaid. Worst of all: Sweet Relief didn’t get a single penny of the supposed ‘20% off the top’ that Sick Drummer had been touting.

“I had to break the news to the Schuldiners of the diabolical circumstances, and they were crushed. Still, I tried to keep this from the public. I went back & forth with Ian Macdonald who seemed to throw his hands in the air in a mea culpa of ‘we didn’t mean it, dude — we’re just shitty businessmen.’ All told, I reckon they currently owe around $100,000 to everyone, including the charity.

“Fans also started writing to us en masse to complain about missing merch and costly VIP tickets never refunded. When I started writing on the Death To All Facebook page that they should press Sick Drummer for refunds, I was suddenly removed from the page as an admin. Yes indeed Sick Drummer cobbled together promissory notes to give to everyone, whilst at the same time pleading with the musicians not to take any legal action. They even agreed that they’d never again undertake anything related to Chuck or Death…but, for whatever reason, they refused to relinquish a claim to the tour name ‘Death To All,’ which added insult to injury. But by then I was just numb.

“I want to apologize to everyone for having to write such a detailed statement so that the rumors can be put to rest. Some of you might say that none of this matters because the shows were cool and you had a killer time. But promises made are promises meant to be kept, especially contractual ones. Chuck’s name was used. The charity was meant to receive immediate cash. I have never insinuated that either Anton or Ian are crooks, but the truth of the matter is that my trust in these two guys has let a lot of folks down, and for that I am full of regret. We would like to see Death To All happen again, perhaps in different parts of the world, and next time this kind of financial fiasco will not happen on my watch.”

Sucks that this happened even with sold out shows and good merch sales. After reading both sides it looks as though the sick drummer guys had good intentions but underestimated the cost of putting on such a big tour like this. They probably would have broken even but the 20% to sweet relief and vip merch fuck ups is what is killing them. Hopefully they make good on their promises to everyone even though they will be taking a loss due to their mistakes.

I do give them props for making this happen as the show was great for everyone that attended.

Wow, the whole situation is just pathetic. It's sad that it had to end this way. I think it's safe to say that the Atlanta and Dallas shows are never going to happen, but maybe there's still a chance of the tour going to Europe if someone else organizes it. Who knows though. I'm thankful I got to see this, and like Onioner said, this was one of my favorite concerts ever. Hopefully more people will be able to experience it if all this gets sorted out.

Looks like there will be another shot at this, hopefully it turns out better than the 2012 one (in terms of the organizers/payments).

They aren't using the original organizers, so they'll probably get a few people to come back.

Wasn't it the sponsors or something that screwed everyone over? That Sick Drummer Magazine or whatever.
