Ok, so at this point how about Skeletonwitch, 1349, Augury and Revocation do their own summer tour and call it A Midsummer Night Massacre or something. Actually, that sounds like some horrible deathcore band name.

I'm still confused about Skeletonwitch. They must have had a good reason from dropping from Wacken, otherwise it'd be the stupidest thing ever. There has to be some other tour going on, either something like this or Ozzfest or whatever.

But yeah, this would be an awesome tour.

The Summer Slaughter facebook page is having a war right now:

Side 1:
All us true, dedicated metalheads who loved SS for the awesome blend of death and tech death it had. It was an great summer tour outlet for us against mainstream tours, a la Warped, Mayhem Fest, Atticus Metal, etc.

Side 2:
The kids. Most are 16, maybe 17, possibly 15. They are "OMG SO STOKED" for this tour. Deathcore galore. I mean, I'll be the first one to defend deathcore on this forum because I like a lot of the bands, but these kids are just a stain to the name of metal. High and mighty, they denounce other metal as "ohh so shitty man eww", while praising "WHite chapel is sOOOO hardcore im gonna slam so hard to that shit : DDDDDDDD <333"

Our friend here is of the second breed, complaining that, I quote,

"all the older metal bands have had their time to headline and play their own tours, now it's time for the newer metal bands to start headlining."

Ummm. What. The. FUCK?!?!! :mad:

I don't know what in the world gives him the notion that "old" metal bands, aka good death metal and tech bands like Necrophagist, Suffocation, Cryptopsy, Ensiferum, Kataklysm, Vader, Decapitated, Immolation, need to stop headlining great tours, just because of how old they are. Wait, I'm not allowed to enjoy a band because of their age? I HAVE to listen to new music, and let new bands take spots of old bands? Fuck you, man. Fuck you so hard. He's just brain dead. I can't believe someone would actually hold that point. Ever.

Seriously, the summer slaughter facebook page is the biggest disappointment I've seen since the actual lineup this year was announced. I hate to ask it, but is this what the future of metal is going to look like? Fucking everyone flaming the older bands and worshiping the watered down rip offs of the older bands but are too ignorant to realize it? This is just sad. Guess all the U.S. has left for a good metal festival is Maryland Deathfest, at least that won't be filled with bad haircuts and beginner karate moves.

The newest Whitechapel is what all deathcore bands should strive for. It's completely different from what all other deathcore bands have put out IMO.

I see what you're saying, but I don't know how much to the extent I agree. Is Whitechapel a "better" band after changing styles? I guess. But do I enjoy the new album as much as I do The Somatic Defilement? Not one bit. For me, Whitechapel pioneered that generic, typical breakdown sound of deathcore, and most other bands try to blatantly rip them off. Call me crazy, but I love that album.

I would say that I like moreso the direction Job For A Cowboy took with Ruination; that album was straight up death/tech death, and it was so much better than the stuff they put out before. If more bands went that direction, I would be fine. Although there a couple excellent deathcore bands that play deathcore- namely All Shall Perish. ASP's first album was very "meh", but the last couple they've done have been incredible. I can't wait to see what they put out this year.

ALL THAT BEING SAID, I still feel that deathcore has absolutely no business being on Summer Slaughter. This year's lineup makes me feel a little sick to what this tour has become, and the validity of its future.





Now, here's an idea I have: THE GREAT NORTH AMERICAN PILLAGE TOUR (folk metal!)

Ensiferum, Tyr, Finntroll, Turisas, Wintersun! :shred:

I would argue that All Shall Perish was more of a pioneer of that style and Whitechapel merely popularized it. Hate.Malice.Revenge came out in 2003 and The Somatic Defilement came out in 2007 (although most of it was written in 2006). All Shall Perish laid the foundation for that generic sound, but The Somatic Defilement had much more of an impact on the scene, just as Suicide Silence's album, The Cleansing. I think 2007 was the year the genre exploded, with Whitechapel, Suicide Silence, and Carnifex all releasing their first albums.

I sort of agree with this. As much as I would love the tour to be devoid of deathcore, Ash (of Sumerian Records) is the one who puts it together, so it's inevitable that there will be deathcore on it.

Yes. HMR was the first "modern" deathcore album I can think of. I liked it, but I like The Price Of Existence and Awaken The Dreamers much more. I'm excited for the release of their new album.

What suprises me about deathcore so much is how such generic Whitechapel ripoffs are becoming popular. I mean I like Whitechapel, but they're so generic themselves, and the kids dig it so much.

Because of the popularity of deathcore keeps increasing, I respect Job For A Cowboy even more. I said this in my review of their Montreal show; they could have continued making deathcore records, and continued to be THE deathcore band. They have lost a lot of popularity the past 2 years because of it. Yes, Ruination was a fantastic, successful album. But have a look at their facebook page : Kids bitching "yo where are the pig squeals? yall used to be da best!!!11" . Not that it really matters, I still think they'll sell a lot when their new EP comes out, but the popularity of deathcore is starting to scare me. Dude, DYING FETUS IS IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS LINEUP! That's all that needs to be said (and has many times, LOL).

This, again! :lol: Last year, frickin' Decapitated headlined it, and Vitek has been dead since 2007! DF has to be more popular than Decapitated, especially newer Decapitated. This is total shit that they're in the middle (although I have no qualms with Black Dahlia headlining, I love that band).

Ahhh... I didn't realize Hate.Malice.Revenge came out that early. In that case, yes, All Shall Perish really did start deathcore. I don't even think Doom by JFAC came out until 2004, which I always considered to be the first deathcore record. I agree that deathcore as we know it was started by Whitechapel in 2006; they had a very distinct, simple sound compared to the muddiness and noise of Hate.Malice.Revenge and the more melodic, metalcore-like progressions of Doom. All in my opinion, of course.

A lot of good points in this thread and I pretty much agree with everything said. The Summer Slaughter tour page is pretty disgraceful. I honestly can't even believe some of the garbage kids are saying. I know this been said a million times, but deathcore kids piss me off so fucking much. I mean I like some deathcore, but a lot of the fans are just so fucking ignorant. I know people personally that pretty much only like deathcore and they are nothing likes punk bitches running their mouths spewing ignorant garbage. I'm all for difference of opinion, but one think I can't deal with is blatant ignorance.

On the topic of the lineup, I am just happy that Black Dahlia Murder is headlining this. They are a real fucking death metal band and I can't even tell you how much it excites they are headlining this over Whitechapel. I have nothing against Whitechapel, they just shouldn't be headlining a tour of this nature. Bottom line is I will still go to this tour, it's just somewhat dissapointing that it will attract some of these ignorant motherfuckers that ruin everyone's fun.

Ensiferum, Tyr, Finntroll, Turisas, Wintersun! :shred:

No thnx except for Wintersun. I like all of the above, but the Folk Metal bands that are doing pretty well over here (Finntroll, Ensiferum, etc) need to stop touring together, capitalize on the current popularity of Folk Metal, and bring over other bands that haven't had the chance. I could see a Finntroll/Manegarm tour going over unbelievably well. Ensiferum/Equilibrium. Primordial/Moonsorrow/Thyrfing (I'm not sure either Primordial or Moonsorrow are big enough over here to headline by themselves, but together they might be able to pull it off doing smaller venues).

Back on topic, I'll not be going to SS this year. I like Fleshgod, and Dying Fetus are alright, used to like em more than I do now. Other than that, don't have any interest in Black Dahlia Murder, Darkest Hour, Whitechapel, etc., so I'll be passing.

Actually, I disagree completely with this. You really think that good bands fell through, and thats why the lineup looks like this?

Look. Deathcore sells more now. Its more popular. More kids coming to the show = more money for the guys booking it, so thats why we got Whitechapel up top with Black Dahlia. Actually, Whitechapel is easily twice as popular as BDM, and I'm incredibly surprised they actually booked them behind just because of the pure popularity they have with the kids these days.

Take the Cleveland date, for example. Every year its been held at Peabody's, this little awesome hole in the wall thats the best venue in Cleveland. This year, its moving up to the House of Blues, a venue that can easily hold 4-5 times the amount of people that Peabody's can. The people booking a tour wanted these bands, they didn't scrape for what they could get. In the process, the hardcore death metal fan got screwed over.

I agree and disagree with you on this,I think regardless they would have gotten whitechapel to play no matter who else was on the bill,But i do think they did scrape around for bands after skelentonwitch and 1349 dropped off.Im 100% sure that if both sw and 1349 were on this bill that oceano or abrb or maybe sfu wouldnt be on the tour,so i think they just got a few shitty bands that are popular to play cause to make up for ticket sales(white chapel not being apart of this cause they would have been on this tourregardless)

The good thing about Summer Slaughter though (well for people in So Cal at least) is that they usually play at SOMA in San Diego where the tickets are really cheap and you don't get hit with any BS fees. For some reason though they didn't book that venue this year.

There is no way that they based off this year's lineup from facebook. Sure, with all the scene kids I see still posting their Within the Ruins and Rings of Saturn votes on there it would make sense, but I think they wanted to do something different and appeal to a different crowd.

And I hope that they realize that it's a fucking mistake and bring back the awesomeness that was 2009's lineup.

As much as I'd like this to happen, it's probably going to be sales based. If this year manages to get more money than the 08 and 09 lineups, then sadly I have the feeling this is going to end up like Mayhem Fest.

Yeah you've got a very good point there. Maybe an annual death metal or even thrash metal U.S. touring festival could pop up for death/thrash fans. I'm just saying that this is a mistake because there's enough core on Mayhem Fest and Warped Tour, there really is no need for another core festival.

Personally, I love it when a tour is 100% shitty. No temptation to go at all > slight temptation for a horrible deal. It also lets the actual decent tours pick up better openers as well.

I just... Don't get it. I see it around here often. Saw it with the Mayhem fest too. Even people saying stuff like 'God, Mayhem is going to suck this year. Wish they'd at least get _________', as if that would completely make up for it.

Kind of thought Conducting was gonna get it. I would have preferred them. Thats really cool that they did put the list up, I found my name. Contortionist, Revocation, and Augury, and DAMN PROUD OF IT. Within the Ruins do nothing for me, I find them so boring.

Black Dahlia, Dying Fetus, 6FU, Darkest Hour, and Fleshgod are all good. Definitely worth a ticket price. Its still a "good" tour, I haven't given hope up on it yet. Thats at least an hour from Dahlia, 30 minutes from Fetus, 6FU, DH, and Fleshgod, which = 3 hours of solid metal, not 1.

And for me personally, I enjoy Whitechapel, and probably won't mind sitting back and watching As Blood Runs Black and Within The Ruins. So Whitechapel is around another good 30-45 of enjoyment, and I can relax for 2 bands. The only band I really don't want to witness at all is Oceano. Overall, well worth the price.

Sure, I would prefer that the good death metal/tech bands came together and formed their own tour as an alternative (http://userserve-ak.last.fm/serve/_/2182756/Summer+Slaughter+Tour+2007.jpg), but I'll take what I can get. My :2cents:.

I agree w/ you on your points about why you'll enjoy this tour. True it's not as good as say, 2009's tour, but Dying Fetus is one of my favorite bands, and I like Whitechapel, SFU, and to an extent, BDM. For a ~$25 ticket, that's not a bad deal.

I see what you're saying, but I don't know how much to the extent I agree. Is Whitechapel a "better" band after changing styles? I guess. But do I enjoy the new album as much as I do The Somatic Defilement? Not one bit. For me, Whitechapel pioneered that generic, typical breakdown sound of deathcore, and most other bands try to blatantly rip them off. Call me crazy, but I love that album.



Dude, I think I agree w/ pretty much everything you say. The past few nights, I took some time and listened to both 'This Is Exile' and 'A New Era of Corruption' in their entirties. I've listened to 'The Somatic Defilement' many times, but never the 2 newer ones all the way through. And I totally agree: TSD is just straight-up brutal deathcore. Grabs you right by the balls and doesn't let go:horns:. SO many bands have tried to rip that sound off, and do sound like them, but for whatever reason, it sounds like garbage to me when those imitators do it.

TIE was kinda 'blah' to me. I liked Posession quite a bit, that was the only song that really stood out to me. ANEOC is better. And like the guy before said, they took themselves to a new direction. Not neccessarily melodic, but more structured and "skillful", I guess. While I do like the album, and it's better than This Is Exile, it still doesn't come close to The Somatic Defilement IMO. Can't really put my finger on it, cause it's still heavy and shit, it just doesn't sound as good to my ears.

And I remember you posted this back in setlist thread, it's a Goddamn shame they were only playing 2 songs from TSD on their last tour. Granted, Prostatic Fluid Asphyxiation is my favorite WC song, they gotta play more than 2 on SS.

And to add to the WC discussion, growing up, TSD was probably my favorite album because of the sheer brutality and because I loved Jack the Ripper stuff. :P Now though, I think A New Era of Corruption is the best work they've put out for different reasons. These guys are truly growing and I think they're the future of deathcore, which with them in the scene, could hopefully turn out better than what it's in right now.

Also, breakdowns aside, some of the early songs have metalcore-esque riffs. "Leica" would be a good example of that.

Obviously they were not a straight deathcore band, but they had some influences in the beginning that might give people a good enough reason to say they were a "technical deathcore" band.

I absolutely agree, but you can tell by the time of their next album the Deathcore will be fully out of their system. I hope the same is true for Born Of Osiris. Both bands have the possibility of taking the Metal world by storm if they get rid of the pig raping and the open note chords. But I know it will happen.

The Chicago House of Blues' website has the date listed as "THE SUMMER SLAUGHTER Tour w/ The Black Dahlia Murder, Whitechapel, Darkest Hour, Six Feet Under, Dying Fetus, Powerglove, As Blood Runs Black, and Oceano", implying that Powerglove will play after ABRB and before Dying Fetus.

:D

YES! :party: :party: :agree:

What I love most about them is that they are so goddamn unique. There's literally no band out there with the same style as them. And it's catchy as hell! They absolutely need to tour the states.

Montreal is $30 before charges. Most of the dates will probably be $25ish

If you have access to get to the venue to buy it there, no rape-me charges, but I don't often go to the city enough to buy tickets strait from the venue.

Yeah, you're right. The thing is, I don't mind paying a few extra bucks to ensure I have a ticket. Nothing would suck more than to show up only to have the show be sold out.

SLAUGHTER SURVIVORS TOUR will be happening this August! CONDUCTING FROM THE GRAVE, THE CONTORTIONIST, RINGS OF SATURN and MORE TBA!! Would you be stoked to see SCALE THE SUMMIT on this package?!

Why does Scale The Summit have to be the red-headed step child of every tour they are on. They better be headlining if this is true.

WTF? Scale the Summit just needs to stick to touring with great other prog bands. Actually though, I'll probably hit up that show just to see the Contortionist, and Scale would be the perfect complement for them. I need to see them headline sometime, when they came here in February they played all but 1 song off The Collective. It's a good album, but Carving Desert Canyons is one of my all time favorites.

A Neuraxis, Augury, Revocation tour would be much more awesome IMO, along with Scale the Summit of course.

Yeah that would be a lot, lot better. Scale The Summit is horribly out of place on a bill with Conducting From The Grave and Death Metal Dragonforce(Rings Of Saturn)

As much as I respect Nergal for his amazing recovery, as well as his hasty return to the stage (which, to be fair, I don't think many of us were even expecting), I'd be pretty disappointed if he does Summer Slaughter next year. That'd be the most underwhelming comeback ever.

I doubt he's gonna do that, though, so we're all good :bliss:

I'm kinda starting to lose my excitement for Summer Slaughter honestly. While I had a lot of fun when I went in 2009 and 2010, they keep reusing bands, and they don't seem intent on bringing the tour in my area anymore.

Okay, maybe my opinion will change when I see them on Suday, but on record, Fleshgod is just so... average. Mediocre. Standard. Nothing jumps out at me or piques my interest enough to finish listening to the whole album. I've tried both Oracles and Agony, both to the same result.

So suck it, Machine Keene will always be better.

:lol: Honestly though, what makes them unique in your guy's mind? There's too much tremelo/blastbeats without riffs in my opinion. But what do I know? ;)

I enjoy their ability to mix brutality, technicality, and atmosphere together. Sometimes you need death metal bands who can just FLOOR you with their intensity, and Fleshgod are amazing at doing this, and they put their unique spin on it. I personally enjoy the riffs, as well as the neoclassical leads mixed in, as well as the tasteful use of symphonics.

Not to mention their drummer is on fucking crack.

Fleshgod Apocalypse is awesome. I think they are one of the most unique death metal acts around. The classical elements are epic and Tomasso Ricardi is one of hell of a vocalist. Agony made them go up even higher in my book.
