Two of the biggest and most ferocious names in death metal — Cannibal Corpse and Morbid Angel — will kick off the 2019 Decibel Magazine Tour in San Antonio.

Believe it or not, this is the first time the two headliners, whose output has helped define the genre, have toured together. Necrot and Blood Incantation will round out the bill.

"We're really looking forward to our second appearance on the Decibel Tour; they always put together a killer line up and this time is no exception," Cannibal Corpse bassist Alex Webster said. "We're particularly excited to be hitting the road with our friends Morbid Angel. In fact, this will be the first time we've toured together in the USA."

Steve Tucker, bassist/vocalist for Morbid Angel, was equally stoked, adding that his band would delve into its older catalog for the tour.

"Everyone here in the Morbid Angel camp are stoked to do this tour with Cannibal Corpse," he said. "To celebrate, Morbid Angel will be performing a mean-ass set of songs that will cover the entirety of our years of kicking ass."
