The Decibel Tour has returned with a bludgeoning death metal bill for the ages that’s stacked with bands of the old guard and some champions from the new guard. Floridan legends Cannibal Corpse and Morbid Angel need no introduction; both tenured death metal titans released stellar new material in 2017, and both know how to dip into their back catalog to appease their bloodthirsty fans in a live setting. However, the real treats on this lineup are Oakland’s Necrot and Denver’s Blood Incantation. Within the last couple of years, Necrot has swiftly pushed themselves to the forefront of American death metal, and their 2017 LP Blood Offerings has enough hooks to hang a thousand corpses from. Meanwhile, Blood Incantation widened the minds of all death metal fans with 2016’s Starspawn. Their brand of doom, mind bending dissonance, and cosmic chaos will slowly rot you from the inside out.
