The most extreme tour of the year has returned with its most devastating and dynamic line-up yet. The 5th annual Summer Slaughter Tour, presented by ESP Guitars and Indie Merch Store, runs from July 21st through August 21st and features such heavyweights as The Black Dahlia Murder, Whitechapel, Darkest Hour, Six Feet Under, Dying Fetus, As Blood Runs Black, Oceano, Fleshgod Apocalypse, in addition to a special halftime performance by Powerglove. However, the madness doesn't stop there as for the first time in Summer Slaughter history the fans will vote on the band that will open the tour

Ash Avildsen (Summer Slaughter Founder) states: “We had a lot of great ideas for bands for the middle of the bill like Obscura, Spawn of Possession, 1349 and more. Unfortunately, none of them were available for the tour. So to keep it real for the fans, who without- this tour doesn’t exist, we decided to bump everyone up a slot and allow you guys to choose who opens the tour! Not only do you now get to play a part in determining the line-up, but you’ll have more time to get inside the venues and not miss the almighty Fleshgod Apocalypse from Italy!”

Shawn Keith (Summer Slaughter Co-Producer) added: “We chose 10 of our favorite metal labels to each have 1 band in the contest who were already getting a lot of buzz on the Summer Slaughter Facebook page. Please participate and vote now for your top 3 picks from the list!”

Head over to www.facebook.com/summerslaughter now to check out the list of artists to choose from and to cast your vote (deadline is April 11th). This tour is for the fans, so let your voice be heard.

I would have to disagree. Even though I have enjoyed all the lineups for Summer Slaughter, I would say 2008 was the worst lineup.

I would have to disagree. Even though I have enjoyed all the lineups for Summer Slaughter, I would say 2008 was the worst lineup.

For me, 2008 would be the 2nd worst.

Confirmed Bands: Headliner:

* Decapitated[2]

Support bands:

* The Faceless[3]
* All Shall Perish[4]
* Veil of Maya[5]
* Decrepit Birth
* Cephalic Carnage
* Animals As Leaders
* The Red Chord
* Carnifex
* Vital Remains

Vital Remains opening is embarassing. Carnifex, Red Chord, Animals As Leaders, Cephalic Carnage, Veil of Maya, ASP are bad. Decapitated headlining was a bad move on their part.

And any year Necrophagist ISNT on summer slaughter, it is automatically half as good.

It's on the Facebook page. They're also considering either Skeletonwitch or 1349.

:drool:

I don't wanna get over excited, but that's a damn good start to things. I'm so used to these tours announcing the same ole deathcore and metalcore acts year after year that it's pretty refreshing to here other bands announced first.

I will probably go even if there are only a few bands I'm interested in, mainly because it seems like there aren't that many good metal tours during the summer. A lot of bands are busy in Europe doing festivals at that time.

I would bet anything Skeletontits is gonna be on here, and Dying Fetus would be :drool:

I don't know how possible this would be, but we came up with this idea on the mayhem forum: Nile and Necrophagist... Co-headlining!

If the Black Dahlia Murder is there, then they will either headline or co-headline, which is cool by me since I still have yet to see these guys live. I'm liking how all of the rumored/confirmed bands so far are all awesome and we have no crap bands yet. Hopefully it stays that way.

If the lineup was Behemoth, Black Dahlia Murder, Dying Fetus, 1349, and Fleshgod Apocalypse I would shit my pants :eek:

That being said, we're missing a couple deathcore bands. Usually, Summer Slaughter is 1/3 straight-up death metal/grind bands (1349, Fleshgod), 1/3 awesome death metal/grind bands that some deathcore fans like, for whatever reason (Behemoth, Black Dahlia Murder, Dying Fetus), and 1/3 straight-up deathcore.

(Side note: I really hope The Faceless isn't on it again. When I saw them last summer they had one of the most flat live tones I've ever heard.)

01-28-2011, 08:17 PM
I'd prefer more bands who haven't been on it yet. Obscura, Nile, Augury, Immolation, etc. Those are awesome bands who I think have decent chance of being on the tour.

AnataFan4Life
01-28-2011, 08:37 PM
If I could bring a band back, i'd bring back Vital Remains and give them a much higher spot on the line-up. Having a legendary death metal band with songs over 6 minutes long play a 20 minute opening set is complete bullshit.

Obscura NEEDS to be on SS. And although Immolation was great last year when I saw them, there was this litle band that opened for them that blew them out of the water... called VADER

Bloodbath wanted to play in the US for MDF but they out priced themselves so it never happened.

So I doubt Summer Slaughter can afford them for a whole tour.

01-29-2011, 09:51 AM
I do know we can count out Cannibal Corpse. They aren't touring in 2011 and will focus on recording their next album. Maybe they can do Summer Slaughter 2012 though.

I think that'd make the fest too top-heavy. I really think they banked a lot of a reunited Decapitated to be a big draw last year and pretty much just phoned in the rest of the line-up. I would for sure take Necrophagist (I like to think of SS as their tour) and another legendary, yet not scarcely touring band, to co-headline.

Although I'd go see Summer Slaughter is it was At The Gates or Morbid Angel headlining, even if Suicide silence clones made up the rest of the lineup. :D

I always thought of SS as strictly a pure tech death tour for us tech death enthusiasts. Necrophagist should headline again. I would love to see Psycroptic get on this, and maybe even Anata out of exile and back into the US :rocker:

Psycroptic might have already been on it? I'm not sure. A band in the same style as Psycroptic but, IMO, lightyears better, would be Abysmal Dawn.

Or, hey, throw Impaled or Ghoul on the lineup and expect every ticket to be sold.

This post was kind of abandoned, but I've been thinking about it a bit lately:

It'd be cool if they could get a good band from left-field to play again, like they did with Ensiferum.

Anybody have hopes for that slot? Assuming they do it again. I would've gone last year had Ensiferum been playing my date but they were only here for half the tour :flame:.

AnataFan4Life
01-30-2011, 12:15 PM
So far, we have The Black Dahlia Murder, Dying Fetus, Fleshgod Apocalypse, and either 1349 or Skeletonwitch.

Like I said earlier, i'm betting The Black Dahlia Murder are headlining/co-headlining. Dying Fetus should be pretty high up, if not co-headlining with TBDM. Fleshgod will probably get stuck as an opener, as they are fairly new to the states. As for 1349/Skeletonwitch, I imagine either one of them will probably be somewhere in the middle.

Dissimulate
01-30-2011, 02:08 PM
You guys are forgetting the trend. Necrophagist headlined in 2007 and 2009, somebody else headlined in 2008 and 2010. Going by past events they should headline this year as well. If TBDM headline they're having the same headliner as 2008. They really need to stop having the same bands on tour, but I'd make an exception for Necrophagist because I haven't seen them yet.

Statutory-Mike
01-30-2011, 03:45 PM
I'm okay with all of this. Not one bad band being speculated. Super stoked if I get to see TBDM for a 5th time in 2 years. This is yes.

What puzzles me the most is how Whitechapel is considered even close to being on the same level of popularity as BDM. If they co-headline and for some reason, Whitechapel is on after BDM, at least I can get a jump on traffic.

But BDM, Dying Fetus and Fleshgod sounds worth it for me. Let's hope they get someone from out of left field like Obscura to be on this.

Are we sure Whitechapel is playing? Because if they are, they're big enough that they'll be headlining, which doesn't make much sense. Other bands are pretty awesome, even though Dying Fetus should be above everyone :rocker:

Yes, Whitechapel is co-headlining with The Black Dahlia Murder.

I wonder if they're gonna put both Skeletonwitch and 1349 or if they really are making people choose?

I've heard rumors Impending Doom is gonna be on this as well. Plus, Sumerian is probably gonna fill out the other 3 bands. Wouldn't be surprised if it's The Faceless, After the Burial, and Born of Osiris. Periphery could fit as well if one of those 3 don't do it.

I hope they don't fill the rest of it up with deathcore. If they did then this would probably be the worst SS lineup so far.

I'm hoping for Obscura at least. Though if they aren't on this, then at least they could possibly do their own tour and get more time to play :rocker:

To me, Summer Slaughter has always seemed like a balancing act: having about an even amount of death metal and deathcore so that they can try to please both crowds. If they end up putting that much deathcore on the line-up, they're gonna lose quite a few fans who go for the death metal half of the line-up.

Whitechapel, Impending Doom, After the Burial, and Born of Osiris wouldn't even be half the lineup.

You'd still have The Black Dahlia Murder, Darkest Hour, The Faceless, Skeletonwitch/1349, and Fleshgod as non-deathcore bands.

Good point. Are we sure the Faceless are gonna be on this? I mean, aren't they always on it? But if they were on it, I have a feeling like they would need to be co-headlining or be right under the main act. With so many big names already, I wouldn't be surprised if they aren't on it. Which is a big :bouville: for me.

And to be technical... I consider ATB and BOO to be Sumeriancore, not deathcore... But we won't go there. Nothing can be as bad as Carnifex on the lineup, so that's not bad. If Whitechapel headlines over BDM, then all the Death Metal fans can leave early, and it'll be all peachy keen. As long as Skeletontits is playing.

Summer Slaughter as a whole is pretty meh... it's usually about 1/3 tech death (w/ crossover appeal to scene kids), 1/3 deathcore (w/ some crossover appeal to the more metal crowd), and 1/3 old-school death/grind/etc.

Whitechapel on this would suck, but if you think about it, Summer Slaughter hasn't gone that much more downhill. I mean, Carnifex played last summer. Sure, they didn't headline, but All Shall Perish basically did.

Along with Suicide Silence, Bring Me The Horizon (I'm not even sure whether you can still call them deathcore), Job for a Cowboy, All Shall Perish, and Carnifex, they are one of the most famous deathcore bands out there. Since they're trendy enough to attract a fuckload of scene kids/hardcore kids they get moved up to the top of the bill just so they'll have more time for their set so more kids stay. So fucking what if they play last - that'll give the rest of us a chance to gtfo and beat the traffic.

On a side note, I hope the SF/Sacramento date won't be in August, but in July.

Personally, I would say good decent. You may or may not have seen the review I did for Whitechapel's show in Chicago a couple weeks ago, but it was surprisingly lacking scene kids and lots of hardcore dancing, just a lot of regular metalheads with crazy violent push moshing going on. Saying that the kids and the ninjas are what I dislike the most about deathcore, I was really surprised at how much fun I had at the show.

Musically, with their new album, they're moving more towards a traditional death metal sound than deathcore. There's not really any breakdowns on that album, kind of like JFAC's Ruination. That being said, I don't know if my performance has any bearing on the rest of the country, and maybe you'll see them with a bunch of slam dancers. But with a very death-metal tour like summer slaughter, they could potentially be fun to see.

If you actually sit down and analyze deathcore musically (insert joke here about makin your ears bleed), there are only a couple bands that really produce unique song structures an original phrasing. I would argue that Whitechapel is one of those bands, alongside All Shall Perish. If you're open to deathcore at all, Whitechapel is much more rooted in the death rather than -core like Suicide Silence or BMTH, so you'll enjoy it.

If you hate deathcore, nothing is gonna change you, you'll despise it, an probably leave early to beat the traffic. Win-win situation.

I have to disagree with that. The songs I've heard (Breeding Violence, in particular) still have breakdowns, and even the ones without still have some noticeable hardcore/metalcore influences, though that isn't necessarily a bad thing. I was actually surprised by how much I liked some of the songs on that album (Devolver, Darkest Day of Man, Reprogrammed to Hate).

I don't think he was saying they were completely gone, just significantly less and they were used better instead of the simple "riff, breakdown, riff, riff, breakdown" formula. I'm excited to see what direction the band takes on their next album.

It's more of a "groove down" or something, not changing the tempo of the song like a traditional deathcore breakdown. True, it still has -core influences and probably should still be considered deathcore, but it's taking the genre to more interesting places from the rut it's been stuck in.

I didn't mean always, I am referring to this year's lineup. I know SS has a solid lineup every year. The '09 version was awesome, was bummed I missed it. Suffocation, Dying Fetus, Necrophagist. I would have preferred '10's lineup to this years, actually.

Yeah, but you're the djent guy.

Not at all actually. I mean, yeah, I like some Djent bands, but there's tons of Djent bands who suck balls. I'm a music/drummer guy first more then anything.

I'm not sold on the new Born Of Osiris yet. It still has a bit of Deathcore remnants for my liking, but it is better.

Should I ASSume that the ones announced earlier (Black Daliah Muder, Darkest Hour, Whitechapel) are in fact headlining? If not I'd love to see Morbid Angel headline.

If they are headlining, Revocation should be on this tour.

Darkest Hour is rumored, also.

Honestly, I can't see Born of Osiris being on this. They're just about as big of a name as Whitechapel or BDM (commercially), and I can't see SS getting that many "big" bands.

As forthe last rumored band, Obscura would make perfect sense. They need at least 1 more big tech/death name.

I meant for that to be a coheadlining spot, but i'm sure Behemoth would probably get top billing if they chose one headliner. Nergal coming back from conquering that disease would probably draw in ticket sales, similarly to how Decapitated coming back from the death of their drummer did last year.

It would be awesome as hell, plus it would be a huge draw. Behemoth's triumphant return to the stage, paired alongside Nile, one of the biggest and most well respected names in death metal. Job For a Cowboy can be the big draw for the deathcore kids. Immolation would be the "old school" band on the lineup kinda like Vader, Suffocation, and Vital Remains were in the past. Obscura could fit as the big tech-death band on the line-up. The Faceless and Born of Osiris do this tour way too much, so After the Burial could be a refreshing change as the Sumerian band. Through the Eyes of the Dead can be another draw for deathcore fans. Augury, Revocation, and Burning the Masses could round out the bill for some interesting openers.

True.I would go just for Nile and behemoth the rest would be a plus.I saw them at ozzfest in 07 together but nile only had like 20 mins and behemoth had like 30(didnt really get into them till mayhem) which did nethier of them any justice at all.J4ac i dont think would bring in a huge deathcore fan base cause they all think they changed to more straight death metal but most metal kids think there still deathcore,id enjoy them regardless but your pretty much right on for the rest of the bands but id rather morbid angel than immolation and maybe instead of btm go with abysmal dawn there new cd is pretty fucking good and i know this wont happen but BloodBath would be fucking epic.

Agree with both points. JFAC is NOT deathcore, they're modern death metal. But yeah, they'd bring in the idiot scene kids who will egt boners for the only 2 songs they play from 'Doom' (which is their only deathcore releas), Knee Deep + Entombment of a Machine, and hate everything from Genesis and Ruination.
