Holy shit, USA is about to get one of the bigger death metal tours I’ve seen in a while in the way of Occupation Domination 2012, which features the absolutely insane lineup of Origin, Cattle Decapitation, Decrepit Birth, Aborted, Rings of Saturn, and Battlecross. This tour is sure to give Summer Slaughter a run for its money among the death metal crowd. Seriously, this lineup is incredibly strong and full of some of the best bands in the genre!
