Cattle Decapitation Announced To Join Cryptopsy on April / May 2013 European Tour

Words you don't expect to hear together in the same sentence often are "vegan death metallers", but that's the exact description that can be applied to Cattle Decapitation. Armed with their most recent album, 2012's Monolith Of Inhumanity (out now on Metal Blade Records), Cattle Decapitation are teaming up with their good friends in Cryptopsy to be main support on Cryptopsy's extensive Spring 2013 European Tour. Also along for the ride on the tour are Decrepit Birth and The Last Shot Of War.

Cattle Decapitation's frontman Travis Ryan is extremely enthusiastic about getting on the road with Cryptopsy again and coming to some new places, and wants everyone to know that good things will be coming on this tour:
 
"It's great to hit the road with our friends Cryptopsy and Decrepit Birth again… and this time, in Europe! We'll be hitting some spots harder than usual and some spots we've never been and we're always into that. This might be the only time this year you guys see us so be sure to come out and rage with us!"
 
As mentioned, the tour is extensive and will travel all over Europe, finishing up in Tilburg in the Netherlands with a stop off at the legendary Neurotic Death Fest! The tour will also have different openers depending on what portion of the tour fans happen to catch with Eyeconoclast starting things off, The Way Of Purity handling the middle dates and Rearmed appearing on the UK shows and at Neurotic Death Fest.

Lover of most things with a foundation of rock or metal. Totally bypassed the grunge movement and was introduced to metal by Metallica and the nu-metal revolution of the early 21st century. Extremely keen photographer (music and otherwise).
