The Decibel Magazine Tour @ El Corazon

Audio punishment 🦇

📸: Dark Funeral

Monday, June 5th • 7 pm

Featuring Dark Funeral, Cattle Decapitation, 200 Stab Wounds, and Blackbraid

As one of the last remaining print publications focused solely on heavy music, Decibel Magazine has held it down for the underground metal scene for around 20 years. Back in 2012, the magazine took its show on the road with the first-ever official Decibel Magazine Tour. They’ve paired legacy acts like Carcass and Behemoth alongside up-and-comers such as Noisem and Horrendous. This year the Decibel Magazine tour is a beast of a lineup with a fierce tag team of headliners representing two different realms of extreme music. 

At the top of the bill, we have the corpse-paint wearing, blasphemy-spewing lords of Swedish black metal Dark Funeral, who are fresh off their US run with Cannibal Corpse. Expect a set filled with over-the-top demonic pageantry and ear-splitting fury. Just below them will be the long-standing powerhouse fan-favorite San Diego death metal band Cattle Decapitation who just dropped a monster of an album, Terrasite. Don’t be surprised if they steal the show. Ohio beatdown death-metallers 200 Stab Wounds will warm up the crowd with the caveman riffs and simple yet satisfying chunks of audio punishment. Make sure you show up in time for Blackbraid, an incredible one-man melodic black metal project hailing from the Adirondack Mountains of New York.
