Destroyers of the Faith, Cannibal Corpse, Triptykon, Enslaved, Job For A Cowboy
Cannibal Corpse, Triptykon, Enslaved and Job For A Cowboy set for first ever Destroyers Of The Faith Tour. Legendary death metal innovators Cannibal Corpse will headline the first-ever edition of Metal Hammer’s Destroyers Of The Faith tour, and will be bringing with them some of the biggest names in extreme music.
Joining the New York titans of gore on this history-making trek will be none other than bowel-exploding doom metal kings Triptykon, spearheaded by seminal extreme metal icon Tom G Warrior of Celtic Forst and Hellhammer fame. And, as if that wasn’t enough, both bands will also be joined by veteran Norwegian progressive black metallers Enslaved and Arizona death metal favourites, Job For A Cowboy!
“Just being a part of such a killer package and having these bands on there…it’s gonna be an exciting time and a great tour for the UK,” says Cannibal Corpse drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz. “I hope all the fans are really pumped for this one, because we definitely are! This is the first time that this is happening in the UK, and it’s very exciting.” “It’s the perfect tour!,” adds Job For A Cowboy frontman Jonny Davy. “We still feel like we have a lot to prove, and this is the perfect tour to get in everyone’s faces.”
Destroyers Of The Faith marks the first time that four such blockbuster extreme metal bands have toured the UK on one bill, and promises to be a legendary showcase of some of the gnarliest, darkest and downright heaviest music to ever grace these shores.
“It’s gonna be good!,” says Enslaved guitarist Ivar Bjørnson. “These bands are known for pioneering their style of music, and they all have a very strong live reputation. Because it’s a Metal Hammer tour, we’ll want to be representing the history of Enslaved. We’ll be making connections!”
The first ever Destroyers Of The Faith will hit the hmv Forum on 10th March.
Strictly over 14s. Under 16s to be accompanied by an adult.
