Floridian extreme metallers ORDER OF ENNEAD are getting used to living on
the road, having recently completed a trek around Europe on the Winterfest
2009 tour before returning to their homeland for the current "The Devil's
Advocate" US tour with DEICIDE, VITAL REMAINS and ADRIFT.

ORDER OF ENNEAD vocalist and guitarist KEVIN QUIRION recaps the first few
shows of the tour:

"The Devil's Advocate Feb US Tour

Day 1
This day just involved driving in a very cramped van with three bands in it.
A couple hours in we got a flat tire on the trailer and had to put gear on
the backseat to make it even more spacious (sarcasm). Glen and Steve did
the driving and we appreciate all Deicide has done for us.

Day 2
Got to the venue early so the gang head to Applebee's. John Li, Josh the
sound man, and myself head for Chinese. Show went well even though it
sounded horrible on stage and the lights were right in my face the entire
set. Some guys from Earache came to the show and only one of them
introduced themselves to me. What's up with that? I'm also selling merch
for Deicide so I didn't get to see any of the bands play tonight. Oh well,
blogs are made for bitching.

Day 3
Drove to Providence, RI. Found some cheap, but good calzones before the
show. The show was killer. Great crowd and our best merch day for any of
our shows so far. We'd love to go back and the owner of the club even
mentioned having us again. After our set I might have said something
negative about the NY Yankees, but I can't remember. Don't get mad NY, it's
only baseball. Oh yeah, GB got on stage with Vital to do Dechristianize
tonight, it was killer.

Day 4
After the show we drove all the way to Virginia because the Hartford show
got cancelled. It wasn't our fault, the promoter was shady and screwed up
the night. Upon arrival in VI, everyone got separate hotel rooms and I'd
see random people walking around during the evening. It's only been a
couple days, but we all needed a break from each other, in my opinion.
Scott and I downloaded Heroes and watched it. KILLER. John Li and I also
got some Magic The Gathering games in. He kicked my ass every time. I'll
have my revenge. If I can't beat him, I'll unplug his guitar on stage one

Day 5
Got up and went to the venue early. Still had to wait around for the
promoter to get there. Crowd was cold for the first couple of bands. I had
to get them going before Vital and Deicide got up there tonight. By the end
of our set we had won over most of them. Couple guys renting a car tonight
and that will make the van a lot more spacious. Things are going well."
