While this past weekend saw an epic viking funeral absolutely appropriate enough for retiring Dave Brockie’s character Oderus Urungus, the group are wasting no time in riding the high spirits into an announcement of a highly extensive three-month trek across North America featuring supporting acts Decapitated, Corrosion of Conformity, and American Sharks.

Back in high school, Opeth and In Flames were two highly influential bands when it came to my introduction to death metal. From around 2006 through 2008, the prospect of catching both acts on a single tour would have seemed like a dream come true.
