After the maiden voyage in 2012, Decibel Magazine is doubling down on veteran star power for a second annual national tour.

This spring, the plague spreads as Decibel brings you three living legends of death metal and grindcore: the preeminent gore institution Cannibal Corpse; rabble-rousing U.K. grind icons Napalm Death, and NYDM stalwarts Immolation. The following press release was issued about the tour:

"While occultism permeated last spring's inaugural dB tour—featuring exclusively European headliners in Behemoth, Watain, the Devil's Blood and In Solitude—they looked (mostly) to North America for this year's unholy assemblage. Three of Decibel's favorite underground powerhouses will take on this year's rotating opening slot: demented Bay Area death-grinders Cretin, Canadian tech-prog upstarts Beyond Creation and Beltway grind/powerviolence crushers Magrudergrind. And the time is ripe to see the new bleed into the old: three of the six artists performing are expected to have new records detonating during the tour.

"Kicking off in May, this year's Decibel Magazine Tour gauntlet will last a full week longer than its 2012 counterpart, spanning over 30 North American dates. Presented by Metal Blade, Indiemerchstore.com, Nuclear Blast, Lace Pickups, Century Media and Season of Mist, the 2013 Decibel Magazine Tour will bring together the kind of globally-renowned, boundary-pushing innovators that have made it possible for the magazine to continue thriving for over 100 issues. Coming off a tour noted for Behemoth frontman Nergal's triumphant return to the States following his battle with leukemia—which culiminated in an explosive sold-out closing gig in New York City—Decibel had no choice but to go bigger and even more badass."

"We're psyched to be headlining this year's Decibel Magazine Tour along with Immolation and Napalm Death," says Cannibal Corpse bassist Alex Webster. "This is a lineup of bands that have been a consistent part of the death/grind scene for decades, and we're proud to be a part of it. It will be a legendary night for extreme music."

"Do you remember the Blue Grape Merchandise catalog?" asks Decibel Editor in Chief Albert Mudrian. "How about the Hard N' Heavy Grindcore Video Special? Or purchasing CDs in longboxes? Then this year's Decibel Magazine Tour was assembled for you. See you on the campaign trail for musical destruction."

I've heard them called many things before, but "rabble rousing" has never been one of them. Good lineup though. Cannibal Corpse are good live, but they got shown up a bit by Triptykon and Enslaved on the Destroyers of the Faith tour last year. I think ND might do the same on this tour. Best of luck to all concerned though, I'm sure people will love it.
