Decibel announce 2019 tour lineup & dates

Damn, this is amazing. Not a whiff of metalcore or djent this time around and Trey’s even promising to play some Vincent-era tunes. Note that it’s CANNIBAL CORPSE and MORBID ANGEL coheadlining until the last week when Cannibal drops off and IMMOLATION comes on board as direct support. NECROT and BLOOD INCANTATION are on board for the endurance.

Press Release

The lineup for the 2019 Decibel Magazine Tour once again breaks new ground, as legendary death metallers Cannibal Corpse and Morbid Angel join forces for the first time ever in America to co-headline the winter tour. Rising Bay Area brutalizers Necrot and space-obsessed Denver death dealers Blood Incantation round out this once-in-a-lifetime bill. New York death metal icons Immolation will join the final week of the tour as main support to Morbid Angel, as Cannibal Corpse exit the tour after the New York City date.

“We’re really looking forward to our second appearance on the Decibel Tour; they always put together a killer line up and this time is no exception,” says Cannibal Corpse bassist Alex Webster. “We’re particularly excited to be hitting the road with our friends Morbid Angel. In fact, this will be the first time we’ve toured together in the USA.”

“Everyone here in the Morbid Angel camp are stoked to do this tour with Cannibal Corpse,” says Morbid Angel’s bassist/vocalist Steve Tucker. “To celebrate, Morbid Angel will be performing a mean-ass set of songs that will cover the entirety of our years of kicking ass.”

“We will be adding some of the older songs back to our set,” assures Morbid Angel founder Trey Azagthoth. “See you all there.”

Presented by Metal Blade Records, and sponsored by Silver Lining Music, Tankcrimes, Dark Descent Records and Nuclear Blast America, the eighth annual Decibel Magazine Tour is once again poised to be the heavy metal tour of the winter.

“Death…is Just the Beginning” is also a tour

This was announced way back in April, but bears repeating now that we’re a bit closer to the dates and NUCLEAR BLAST has announced the resurrection of the Death…is Just the Beginning compilation series this tour is taking its name from.

From Nuclear Blast:

Montréal based melodic death metallers KATAKLYSM announce that they will be teaming up with Swedish death metal legends HYPOCRISY for a European co-headline tour! After several years without any touring activities, the band with Peter Tägtgren (PAIN, LINDEMANN) is back in business; Kataklysm will release their upcoming studio record, Meditations on June 1st, 2018 through Nuclear Blast. The tour’s special name traces back to Nuclear Blast’s popular sampler series and promises nothing but evenings of moshpits and endless devastation. Don’t miss out on this outstanding tour and secure your tickets now!

From Kataklysm’s Maurizio Iacono:

“It’s been in talks for over two years and finally both Kataklysm and our brothers in Hypocrisy can make the schedule work to join forces once more. It’s been almost 15 years since we toured together and the last time we did the tours became instant classics. It‘s that time again folks… Kataklysm & Hypocrisy team up once more for a world tour beginning with Europe this fall. To make things even greater our record label Nuclear Blast has come on board and baptized the tour “Death…is Just the Beginning”, a homage to the old classic compilations that made so many fans discover both bands back in the day. This will mark the return of this classic compilation with this tour and maybe give other artists the chance to get discovered like we did. DO NOT MISS THIS TOUR, YOU ONLY GET ONE CHANCE!”

From Hypocrisy’s Peter Tägtgren:

“I hope that you are just as excited as we are, because we are very happy to announce that we are finally warming up the Hypocrisy engine again and that we will be back on the road in fall! We will be touring Europe together with our friends in Kataklysm! The tour will be an overview of the chaos and confusion created by Hypocrisy over the years. See you out there!”

While the tour is the big news, seeing Hypocrisy up on two feet again is a good sign. It’s about time for another album from them.

Frank Mullen’s last ride

Sad to see the day:

“Hello my friends — so this is it, after 30 years of being a part of this amazing band, which I have had the opportunity to tour the world and bring our music to the sickest fans on the planet, it has come to this time — I bid you a farewell.

“I would like to thank first and foremost, all of my brothers in SUFFOCATION who I have shared the stage with over the years. We have had the sickest of times on the road, and recorded some of the sickest fucking music the planet has ever heard. Secondly I want to thank all our fans and friends worldwide, who have helped make this journey possible by supporting us unconditionally. None of this would have been possible without you. So in closing, I will miss you all. This has been the craziest ride of my life and I would not change a thing! Until we meet up again take care, stay brutal and I look forward to the next chapter.

“But before I take my final step off the stage, to give back to all of you who have supported, me and the boys are going to head out on the ‘Death Chopping North America’ tour. Along with some insane support acts including CATTLE DECAPITATION, KRISIUN, and SOREPTION! I hope to see you all for one last ride across North America. Stay brutal.”
