The October '98 Sound Of Perseverance European tour was my first tour as the new singer of Benediction, so it will always have a special place in my memory. It was all so strange for me, but Death was sheer class from the first night I saw them and we were soon into a cool tour. The German band Crack Up (real nice guys) played the dates between October 5 and October 18, as far as I can remember the rest of the shows were Death, Benediction and local supports, apart from the gig in the Czech Republic, where lots of bands played a really cool sort of mini festival (sorry if I'm forgetting anyone!). I remember Death's sound guy used the Rush song "Tom Sawyer" to check the PA out before sound check, and then at least in my memory, Death often played Empty Words to soundcheck- so now when I hear either of those songs, it takes me straight back. It was amazing to play with Death the first time I got to tour, and I'll never forget it. At the last gig of the tour, everyone got all the spare guitars out and played along on stage to Death's last song, it was funny as hell.
