"they remain timeless not only in influence, but in the fact that SUFFOCATION is still the heaviest fucking band on the planet." – Metal Injection
"one of world's most influential Death Metal acts" – voices from the dark side (Suffocation)
"The origin of brutal death metal as we know it began 25 years ago in Long Island, NY with a band called Suffocation. These purveyors of sonic destruction are still bringing it every night, showing the world how it's fucking done!" – Metal Rules
"The crowd immediately went into a rabid frenzy of moshing, crowd surfing, and headbanging!" – Metal Rules (Suffocation)
"Suffocation are amongst the tightest, most seamless death metal machines going. And I'm talking psychically tight. The sudden, juddering stop-start rhythms and swift transitions from sandstorm blasting to crushing, bone-breaking slowdowns showcased the band firing on all cylinders, never once missing a beat." – No clean singing.com
"explosively brutal on-stage" – Allmusic (Suffocation)
"death metal gods SUFFOCATION immediately beat the fatigue out of the crowd" – Metal injection
"mind-bending solos in between huge riffs and interludes which can only be described as the sound of impending doom." – Metal injection (Suffocation)
"the whole venue is happy to oblige, gleefully erupting into a mass of thrashing limbs hurling themselves with reckless abandon." – Terrorizer (Suffocation)
"New York's Death Metal King Pins" – Terrorizer (Suffocation)
"Decapitated are on top form and tighter than a nun's lady garden." – Terrorizer
"technically dazzling death metal masters" – exclaim.ca (Decapitated)
"roared (quite literally!) into ferocious action." – tartareandesire.com (Decapitated)
"The riffs were execute with staggering speed and precision, as was the excellent drumming....... they left the venue, or at least me, in a stunned sense of satisfaction." – tartareandesire.com (Decapitated)
"people were losing their minds to one of the most consistent death metal bands around today ... Just punishing and brutal." – richreviewz.wordpress (Decapitated)
"their sound was a thick, nonstop barrage peppered with fast rhythms... Decapitated was the gem of the night" – Winter Castle
"the Polish death metal quartet's live attack continues to be unrelenting and brutal in ways about which most bands can only dream. At times, they seem impossibly precise – Decapitated in concert are unforgiving, but they are never just a cacophony of random noise. They are, simply put, a unit that is beyond impressive." – Metal Sucks.net
"it's possible that the walls of the venue shook a little bit." – Thisisnotascene.com (Decapitated)
"It pancakes the venue, propagates stealth stagediving, and pisses over all those imposters who take an alien Meshuggah-ish rhythm and water it down instead of concentrating and weaponizing it with a blitzkrieg of off-kilter riffs. Tonight Decapitated justify their position as not only one of the most exciting death metal bands to come out of the post-Morbid Angel landscape, but the most durable, too." – Decibel magazine
"As expected, Decapitated were extremely tight and delivered their assault of now what can really only be called a blend of technical death metal and metalcore." – Heavy Metal.about.com
"known as this genres most respected bands" – Metal Titans (Decapitated)
"Polish innovators of modern death metal" – pushtofire.wordpress (Decapitated)
Death metal - Widely imitated, rarely duplicated. Many bands don’t have the skill or the balls to hang with the big guns. However, 2 of the best acts around today in the iconic Suffocation and the merchants of brutality Decapitated are teaming up for a co-headlining showdown between American and European death metal in Australia and New Zealand.
Metropolis Touring is extremely proud to present Despise The World Australian / New Zealand Tour 2015.
Without any argument, New York’s Suffocation are known for their style of fusing aspects of technical modern metal with the percussive, brutal attack of classic death metal which prove they proudly stand well above the myriads of metal bands in the world today.
Since their inception way back in 1988, Suffocation have been terrorising stages across the globe for 25+ years with a backlog of explosively brutal cuts such as Pierced From Within, As Grace Descends, Thrones Of Blood, Infecting The Crypts, Breeding The Spawn and Effigy Of The Forgotten that violently bludgeon your senses while making you bang your head to the uber-groove with technical and precise guitar wizardry melded together with a bone crushing rhythm section, the band proves with every show why they are as well respected as they are. Just listen to their latest album “Pinnacle Of Bedlam” and you will see what we mean.
When it comes to Suffocation’s live show, Metal Injection summed it up best – “Seeing Suffocation live is something every extreme metal fan has to do at least once, because their studio albums, no matter how incredible they may be, don't come close to capturing the true atmosphere of their sound. Believe me, go see them live and you'll be indoctrinated with a whole new understanding of one of the most innovative and influential death metal bands in history.”
Formed in 1996, Krosno, Poland’s Decapitated are widely known as one of the world’s most innovative and respected exponents of technical death metal bolstered with layers of groove that has earned them respect with their peers, critics and fans alike.
Decapitated are extremely tight live and deliver an assault of their aforementioned sound with a venomous attack delivered with insane levels of energy and passion.
They were fast on the rise worldwide until they met with an unfortunate series of incidents in Russia where their former vocalist Adrian "Covan" Kowanek and founding drummer Witold "Vitek" Kiełtyka were injured and killed respectively. However, light comes out of black – the events inspired the Decapitated machine to continue on and they came back stronger than ever with Carnival Is Forever and an ensuing world tour. Flash forward to 2014, they just released their newest album Blood Mantra that is massacring ears all over the world to critical acclaim!
So, prepare to Despise The World Australian / New Zealand Tour 2015 with the mighty Suffocation and Decapitated coming to demolish Australian and New Zealand shores in May!
