Sophomore slump, our ass. The second iteration of the Decibel Magazine Tour has, sadly, grinded to its final resting place, but the stench lingers in righteous triumph. Those who witnessed the seas of horn-throwers, stage-divers and pit psychos on any given night know that the unholy trinity of Cannibal Corpse, Napalm Death and Immolation—not to mention our formidable battery of rotating and regional openers—brought it with extreme prejudice.
With numerous sellouts and near-capacity crowds over the 29-date gauntlet, it was the most successful year yet for the tour, and we already have much of 2014’s lineup in place. Stay tuned, as we’ll be announcing the full lineup in January. And thanks to all of the bands, fans, behind-the-scenes miracle workers and well-wishers for kicking ass. We can’t wait to try and trump this one next spring.
