Joining them on select dates are Florida death metal legends OBITUARY and the eclectic champions of “murder metal”, MACABRE. Death grinders EXHUMED and newcomers NOISEM will open each night of churning insanity as well. “We thought it would be cool to go off the beaten track a bit and play some places that usually get overlooked,” commented CARCASS frontman Jeff Walker. “We figure some of the tumbleweeds needed blowing away.
