Obituary Touring New Zealand in January with Psycroptic

Chris Cudby / Thursday 21st September, 2023 12:39PM

It's been three insane years since Florida death metal pioneers Obituary brought their presciently named Cause Of Death tour to Aotearoa back in 2020, just before the global pandemic ground everything to a halt. Anyone who experienced those skull-crushingly cacophonous events first-hand will be 100% amped to know Obituary are soon making their mighty return — this time treating Ōtautahi's metal masses to their unsparing sonic violence, along with headline dates in Tāmaki Makaurau and Pōneke. During their time away, Obituary released their Slowly We Rot - Live and Rotting collection and 2023's new opus Dying of Everything, the monumentally influential gore-inclined group's eleventh studio album since forming in 1984. They'll be here this January playing "a massive career spanning set including a choice slab of meaty cuts from the classic albums of their early years," joined for all three dates by Australian death metal veterans Psycroptic — brought to you by Valhalla Touring...

Press release:

OBITUARY remains to this very day as one of the most influential and groundbreaking bands in the death metal genre, one which they helped to create. Combining hyper-speed guitar riffing, complex arrangements and guttural screams, the band created a bleak and violent soundscape all of their own. After more than 35 years in the pit, OBITUARY continues to peak and dominate the genre worldwide. That’s a given and proven fact!

With the memory of 2020’s sold out ‘Cause Of Death’ New Zealand tour etched into the minds of every person there, OBITUARY are busting to kickstart 2024 right in the guts by herding their way south to rearrange venues, rumble stages and remind us all of the classic era of death metal by churning out a massive career spanning set including a choice slab of meaty cuts from the classic albums of their early years!!

More than two decades deep into their existence, PSYCROPTIC have reigned as kings of Australian death metal for the vast majority of that time. With their distinct technical sound, they have consistently maintained a strong, loyal, and long-lasting rapport with the fans. It’s been a while coming, but PSYCROPTIC are finally in a position to let rip on their most rabid fans of all and together with OBITUARY, make a formidable yet unforgettable experience.
