Cardiac Arrest, Gravehill, and Hod will be touring together as the "Campaign For Death Metal Purity" 2010 tour. Ibex Moon Records issued the following statement about the tour:

"Death Metal has grown weak and soft… with the infiltration of hard-core breakdowns; gravity blasts, emo singing, and MTV saturated 'fashion agenda'…what a sad affair when Death Metal becomes another genre of pop music!" Ibex Moon Records would like to invite the True Death Metal Elite to a series of select dates across the United States of America! A Tour designed for the sole purpose of taking Death Metal back to its roots, a time when metal wasn’t a fashion statement and Death Metal came from some place much more sinister and far more deadly!"

John McEntee, Ibex Moon Records label mastermind and guitarist/vocalist for Incantation, had this to say about the tour: “With all the trends in metal these days and all these fest type tours that mostly only highlight the flavor of the month bands. We wanted to put together a tour with 3 strong Death Metal bands that all in their own right have proven themselves to be true warriors of death! Each band has forged their own legacy by being 100% true to themselves and it shows with their intense live performances. This is the time to take back our underground scene and show your support to some of Death Metal’s top extreme bands. Death Metal is Eternal Under the Ibex Moon."

"Some may call this movement the New Wave of Old School Death Metal or NWOSDM, well fuck that bullshit! There is no 'New Wave' in Death Metal! We have never stopped hailing the olden way! The trend whores have tried to take over our sacred music and call it 'Death Metal,' but we are taking it back with extreme force! This tour is one of the battles we wage in our war, the posers shall be cleansed!" stated Mike Abominator, vocalist for California’s Gravehill.

Guitarist / vocalist Adam “Deathrot” Scott of Chicago’s Cardiac Arrest elaborated on their involvement: "We look forward to storming the U.S., spreading Death Metal hell to all who attend, and a slow horrible death to some hipster dorks… but that's another case. We shall ROT together!"

Texas metallers HOD also commented: ”What’s happened to the Death Metal scene is exactly what happened to America. Once discipline turned into abuse, America bred a generation of emotional, panty-waist, white leather wearing pussies! We've allowed these mouth breathing vermin to run gaily through our scene spewing their unoriginal garbage all over the fucking planet calling it 'Death Metal' and the dogs eat it up like the vomit that it is! Well it's all over! With this tour the TRUE Metal Underground is taking back Death Metal and impaling the posers, you can't fuckin' stop US!"
