CANNIBAL CORPSE – To Kick Off Decibel Magazine Tour With Morbid Angel Later This Month

Posted in concerts, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on February 9, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

In less than two weeks, CANNIBAL CORPSE will join Morbid Angel for a co-headlining run on this year’s edition of the Decibel Magazine Tour. A once-in-a-lifetime bill, the trek finds the two legendary death metal units sharing the stage for the first time ever in America. Support will be provided by rising Bay Area brutalizers Necrot and space-obsessed Denver death dealers Blood Incantation. The full tour runs from February 17th through March 14th. CANNIBAL CORPSE will exit the tour following the New York City date on March 7th. Immolation will join the caravan in its final week serving as main support to Morbid Angel.

As previously announced, Erik Rutan will fill in for guitarist Pat O’Brien on all upcoming CANNIBAL CORPSE dates as O’Brien tends to personal issues. Rutan has produced four albums with CANNIBAL CORPSE (KillEvisceration PlagueTortureRed Before Black) and is uniquely equipped to fill the role – he is one of the death metal’s most acclaimed guitarists and is known for his time as part of Morbid Angel throughout the ’90s and early 2000s, as well as handling vocals/guitars and production duties for his current band Hate Eternal.

The latest issue of Decibel includes exclusive interviews with both CANNIBAL CORPSE and Morbid Angel as well as with tour’s co-conspirators. Don’t miss this issue! Order yours today at:

In May, CANNIBAL CORPSE will play Leg Five: North America of Slayer’s Final World Tour. The journey begins on May 2nd in Phoenix, Arizona and runs through sixteen cities, concluding on May 25th in Mansfield, Massachusetts. Additional support will be provided by Lamb Of God and labelmates Amon Amarth.

BEHEMOTH To Support SLAYER On The North American Leg Of Their Final World Tour Alongside Lamb Of God, Anthrax, And Testament

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , , , on January 26, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

SLAYER - Lamb Of God - Anthrax - Behemoth - tour flyer - 2018 - #333MO8383ILMNTG

BEHEMOTH, along with Lamb Of God, Anthrax and Testament, all bands who have close ties to and have shared the stage multiple times with Slayer over the years, will accompany the band on leg one, North America, of what will be Slayer’s final world tour. The trek begins May 10th when a twenty-six-date odyssey will have them crisscrossing the country, from San Diego to Toronto, Orlando to Minneapolis. Tickets go on sale to the public Friday, January 26th; log onto for all ticketing info.

“If you are lucky enough to be invited to play even just once with living legends like Slayer, it’s an incredible honor. Slayer gave Lamb Of God our very first two overseas shows. Slayer has subsequently taken us on several full-length tours, both at home and abroad. The guys in Slayer and their crew have also always been very, very cool to our band. It is irrefutable that Slayer helped create the genre of aggressive metal, and all modern bands of that ilk owe them a huge debt – I know we do. To be asked to be a part of their final tour – well, it just makes you stop and realize just how lucky you are. Hail Slayer! We’ll see you on the road…” – Randy Blythe, Lamb Of God

“It’s truly an honor to be on Slayer’s final tour. Anthrax and Slayer have toured together for decades, we are family, band and crew, so we want to help give Slayer the best send-off possible, and to have one last blast with our friends. But you know, at the end of the day, Slayer will never die.” – Frank Bello, Anthrax

“Well, well, well… the dream comes true AGAIN it seems. BEHEMOTH will be teaming up with mighty Slayer again for another extensive North American run later this year! Nothing short of epic if you ask me! I cannot wait to confront American legions again before we unleash the new record. One of the biggest metal tours this year: Testament, BEHEMOTH, Anthrax, Lamb Of God and Slayer. Can you miss it out? FUCK NO!” – Nergal, BEHEMOTH

“Sharing the stage with Slayer once again is going to be an honor, and to be a part of the final tour is going to be a special privilege for us. Slayer has influenced so many aggressive bands in their career. This tour will be an epic time for all who attend. Do yourself a favor and clear your calendars when this show comes to town. This will be your last chance to see a tour like this. Get ready North America for the devastation.” – Chuck Billy, Testament

Slayer - You Against You - promo Scion AV - cover pic - 2015 - #MO33SMNSF

Torrance, Calif, Sept. 4, 2015 – Scion, whose partnership with iconic thrash metal outfit, Slayer, birthed the now legendary Slayer-inspired tC sports coupe, have joined forces to stream the band’s new song, “You Against You” (

The song, which is from the band’s forthcoming album Repentless (Sept. 11, Nuclear Blast), will also be available as a limited run of 7” vinyl records in January.

Fans of the band can also view a video Scion offered this fall, featuring behind-the-scenes studio footage, a tour of the ESP Factory via Tom Araya, and a visit to Kerry King’s Psychotic Exotics’ reptile house and herpetology nursery (

Araya also recently spoke with Scion AV All Purpose Show’s Prince Paul for an extensive interview ranging from the band’s humble beginnings to the work behind Repentless:

About Slayer
For more than three decades, Slayer’s onslaught has proven the band to be the supreme thrash-metal band on the planet. The two-time Grammy-winners have also accumulated an abundance of Certified Gold Albums along with “Best…” awards from media outlets all over the world, including Kerrang!, SPIN, Metal Hammer, Revolver and Esquire.

Throughout Slayer’s history, the band has never faltered in unleashing its extreme and focused sonic assault and unlike many of its contemporaries who “commercialized” their sound, Slayer has remained crushing and brutal, steadfastly refusing to cater to the mainstream. Slayer’s founding member, guitarist Jeff Hanneman passed in 2013, and Exodus guitarist Gary Holt has been filling in since.

Paul Bostaph, who was Slayer’s drummer from ’94 – ’01, has rejoined bassist/vocalist Tom Araya and guitarist Kerry King and is back behind the kit. Slayer is set to release Repentless, their 11th studio album on 9/11/15, which Guitar World has already declared as “The Metal Album of The Year.”
