MONOLITHIC DEATH METAL BAND Cattle Decapitation are closing out the year (and, more than likely, the album cycle for 2015’s The Anthropocene Extinction) in style with “The North American Extinction Tour Part II: Inhuman Beings,” taking place this October and November. The run, co-presented by Exclaim! Aggressive Tendencies and Metalsucks, somehow bests the lineup of “Part I,” with support from deadly thrashers Revocation, noisy grind bastards of death Full of Hell and dizzying dystopian tech death metallers
Artificial Brain. The havoc will start out west and demolish America and seven Canadian markets — Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Regina, Winnipeg, Montreal and Toronto, who get to celebrate Halloween with the ghoulishly good lineup — while labelmates the
Black Dahlia Murder lead their charge in chase of the sun, heading east-to-west on a concurrent Exclaim! Aggressive Tendencies-sponsored run. The tour’s first three dates will feature Tijuana, Mexico’s mad doctors of gore Thanatology in place of Full of Hell. Canadian fans can enter for a pair of tickets at Exclaim.ca.
