Greek symphonic metal masters SepticFlesh are set to hit North America in October for one of the most diverse tours of the year. The Greek heavyweights will be busting skulls with Brazilian death metallers Krisiun, Israeli metal band Melechesh, Canadian death metal outfit Ex Deo and Columbian black metal act Inquisition.

As we've showcased in our Extreme Metal Olympics feature, there are many truly incredible metal bands to be found throughout the world. The upcoming 'Conquerors of the World' tour has succeeded in finding five truly incredible bands from four separate continents.

SepticFlesh released one of 2011's best metal albums in 'The Great Mass.' Collaborating with the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, SepticFlesh created one of metal's most chaotic and diabolical albums with 'The Great Mass,' which is an absolute must-hear for metal fans.

The band addressed its headlining spot on the 'Conquerors of the World' tour: “You have summoned the great mass and the people have listened … Finally after all these years we will bring the first SepticFlesh headliner tour to North America!! The lineup is punishing, we are ready, hungry and determined to conquer!!"

Although SepticFlesh are headlining the tour, all five bands are some of international metal's most extreme and talented bands. Do yourself a favor and check out all five bands to prepare for what will surely be one of the most interesting tours of 2012, but for now, check out the SepticFlesh track 'A Great Mass of Death,' along with the full list of tour dates below.
