One of the most brutal, relentless and vital forces in extreme music, Cattle Decapitation will return to Australia in February!

They will be joined by one of Australia’s most successful heavy acts, Psycroptic, to form one of the deadliest tours of the year.

The band have now added a show in Perth. Making a massive tour even bigger!

Delivering repeated sledgehammer blows at breakneck speed enables the band to maintain their position at the most violent end of the death metal spectrum yet their most recent offerings have expanded their sound, allowing a little more melody in without losing any of their intensity. The brutality is underpinned by vocalist Travis Ryan’s bleak lyrics that bluntly illustrate the fate of the human race if it’s allowed to continue pillaging and destroying the planet.

Cattle Decapitation are the soundtrack to savagery. A striking, unflinching reflection of the current state of humanity.

The local supports for all shows have now been locked and loaded, making one of the heaviest tours of the year even more brutal.. if that’s even possible.

In New Zealand

Starting out in Auckland with a trio of NZ’s most brutal bands in the shape of Organectomy, Perditionist, Scorn Of Creation the Extinction tour will begin with the utmost ferocity.

Christchurch will see their hometown extremists Organectomy head the charge with grindmasters Blindfolded and Led to the Woods and the no nonsense death metal dished out by Silent Torture.

The final NZ show in Wellington will once again see Organectomy leading the supports, with death beat downs provided by Depraved and some brutal tech death courtesy of Carnal

In Australia

Melbourne will be treated to one of the nations leading melodic death metal acts, Hollow World and very hot on their heels, melodic deathsters Aetherial.

Fans heading to the Canberra show will need hazmat suits as Inhuman Remnants deliver their vile beastly grind, while Wretch deliver some old school death-thrash.

It wouldn’t be a death metal show in Sydney without it’s leading light, Daemon Pyre and joining them for a night of demonic terror are the aptly named Deiformity

In Newcastle, The Seer are a perfect match and the logical choice with their stunning symphonic death metal and Blind Oracle are set to deliver their self proclaimed rumblin’ thunder.

Brisbane tech-death maestro’s Eternal Rest and straight up purveyors of modern metal Amicable Treason lead the way in the north.

The tour comes to close with an all assault on the good folk of Perth courtesy of Earth Rot, hardcore/death crossover act Unravel and straight up metal of Dead Currency.
