Tampa’s Morbid Angel comes home to headline the Decibel Magazine tour

The tour hits Orpheum in Ybor City with Immolation and Necrot in tow.


Erik Rutan is supposed to fill in for Pat O’Brien during a Cannibal Corpse tour, but metal fans can get a chance to hear some of his recent work in a more intimate setting when Morbid Angel brings a 2017 album, Kingdoms Disdained, to Orpheum.

That record found Rutan — who is best known for his work with Hate Eternal — joining Morbid Angel’s founding guitarist Trey Azagthoth and bassist-vocalist Steve Tucker in Mana Studios in St. Petersburg and working together to come out with what Rolling Stone described as a “cyclone of blastbeat-driven fury punctuated with Azagthoth’s signature heaving, lunging grooves and Eddie Van Halen-on-a-bad-trip solos.”

Death metal bands from Yonkers (Immolation), Denver (Blood Incantation) and Oakland (Necrot) round out the bill.
