Tour de Force

2016 Decibel Magazine Tour to Feature Abbath, High on Fire, Skeletonwitch, and Tribulation

  • Axl Rosenberg

I don’t know whose child the dudes at Decibel sacrificed to Satan to get such consistently amazing line-ups for their annual package tour, but it must have been someone prominent: since launching the trek in 2012, the tour has featured Carcass, At the Gates, Napalm Death, Cannibal Corpse, Behemoth, The Black Dahlia Murder, and Converge… and that’s just some of the bands that have been on the tour.

Now the Decidudes have announced the line-up for the 2016 edition of the tour, and, yeah, it remains unfuckwithable.


I believe the phrase you’re looking for is, “HOLY SHIT!”

That line-up would be staggering under any circumstances, but the fact that it’s Abbath’s first tour of the U.S. since leaving Immortal earlier this year makes the whole affair extra super-duper special. You cannot miss this tour.

General admission tickets go on sale on November 20… BUT as of right now there are a limited number of VIP premium packages available for each tour date. Those packages come with a limited edition t-shirt, an 18 x 24 tour poster, a pass that allows you to skip the line to get into the venue, an exclusive digital tour issue of Decibel, and a couple for a 15% discount on Indie Merch. So that’s clearly worth a little bit of extra money. Don’t wait — buy a VIP package now.
