The longest-running metal tour in North America is back! The Decibel Magazine Tour returns in May as Swedish black metal legends Dark Funeral headline Decibel’s now decade-plus annual trek. Tour support comes from California progressive death/grind heroes Cattle Decapitation, Ohio death metal destroyers 200 Stab Wounds and Adirondack atmospheric black metal phenom Blackbraid.
“North America, we will soon meet again. And this time we’re coming back to headline the epic Decibel Magazine Tour—what an honor,” says Dark Funeral guitarist/founder Lord Ahriman. “We have already prepared a new and absolutely amazing setlist. You will be in for a massive treat this time, no doubt.”
“Excited to be hitting the USA again and playing more than just one new song this time,” exclaims Cattle Decapitation vocalist Travis Ryan. “Dark Funeral are great guys, and we look forward to jamming alongside them, and Metal Blade Records has told us many good things about labelmates 200 Stab Wounds so it will be good to finally meet and see them! What Blackbraid is doing is super sick and we do love our black metal, so all in all, it’s looking to be quite an awesome run!”
