Central Florida death metal demigods Atheist have had a long career of innovating and pushing at the boundaries of extreme metal, and 2019 has seen some long overdue kudos come their way. The band now has a beer named after them, and well-respected metal imprint Season of Mist reissued three of their classic early albums.

To finish the year, the band are taking a victory lap as a touring opener for grind stars Cattle Decapitation on their "Geocidal Tendencies" tour, a jaunt that is bringing them to the City Beautiful next week for a homecoming of sorts.

Atheist play with Cattle Decapitation and Full of Hell at the Abbey on Tuesday, Nov. 26 at 6 p.m. Tickets can be purchased here.
