Death metal stalwarts Suffocation and Napalm Death are embarking on a jaunt together, criss-crossing Latin America in the spring. Death metal fans in the region, known for their fevered dedication to the genre, are best served by stocking up on earplugs. Lots of earplugs. And no, that doesn't make them girly men!

"We can't wait to crush with Napalm Death," Suffocation drummer Mike Smith told Noisecreep. "When you combine two veteran bands and a fan base that bleeds passion, the outcome will be what once was the essence of the genre: all things extreme. Suffocation and Napalm Death in South America is gonna f---in'' kill."

Or deafen. American death metal fans, if it's in your budget, take a trip below the equator to bang your head.
