Tampa death metal O.G. Erik Rutan is hitting the road with his current band Hate Eternal in continued support of their 2015 LP Infernus. They'll be joined on the tour by Black Fast, Vital Remains (who are perhaps known to some as the band that brought a cop onstage) and Inanimate Existence. This should be a single-mindedly brutal bill for those of us who need that sort of thing from time to time.

The tour will stop in NYC for a show at Saint Vitus on May 19. Tickets for that are on sale now.

Stream the punishing Infernus, and check out all tour dates, below.
