CC and BTBAM would be perfect. My brother and I could show up right at the end: him for BTBAM, and me for CC :D

But then they'll probably have Hate Eternal who I want to see and they'll probably be one of the first bands or something. They really should let you in and out of this event :(

You guys don't like breaks? I can't stand watching a bunch of bands in a row regardless of how good they are due to getting tired from standing. Plus BTBAM is definitely better then Whitechapel, As Blood Runs Black, Oceano etc...

I always enjoy having 1-2 shit bands on Summer Slaughter (especially early on during The Palladium's re-entry period). It gives me a chance to go outside and get some water and chill for a little.

I imagine Cannibal Corpse will close the show. Everybody can take a break and watch BTBAM's epicness before everyone tears each other apart during Cannibal Corpse.

It also seems like they are actually trying to get a fresh lineup this year, instead of just repeating the same bands over and over again.

I'm taking those with a grain of salt after what happened last year.

If they are true though, I wonder why Obscura declined? CC, Cattle Decap, Hate Eternal, and Exhumed. That's four death metal (well, deathgrind in the case of Cattle Decap and Exhumed) bands already.

I don't think Exhumed will be on this, I think they're just being lumped in because of the CC/Exhumed tour. And even with Exhumed, that's four bands out of an at least 8 band tour. I wouldn't be surprised if they're bringing attention to the death and grind bands to draw the attention of the "trve" crowd and then when the actual lineup is released, the rest is death/metalcore.

Holy fuck this would be a sweet lineup! CC and BTBAM is ridiculous but incredible. BTBAM is in my top 5 favorite bands ever, so I will be there already, no matter who else is there. Last year, SS only came to Ft. Lauderdale, which is about 3 1/2 hrs away from me. Last year's lineup wasn't worth the drive (since I've seen most of the bands), but I will make it if I have to this time.

Out of all of the big summer package tours, Summer Slaughter has easily become our favorite; it’s so much fun every year that we’re even willing to forgive the to-be-expected presence of some bands we can’t stand (e.g., Oceano, As Blood Runs Black, etc.), because the rest of the line-up built around them is usually so fantastic that having a few built-in beer breaks isn’t the worst thing in the world (as opposed to some of SS’s competitors, where the beer-break-to-cool-band ratio makes the whole endeavor just not worth it). So, yeah, we’re on the edge of our seats to see who makes it onto the bill this year.

To that end, prog metal social network czar Alkahest of Heavy Blog has done it once again, today with some pretty juicy rumors about the lineup for Summer Slaughter 2012.


First, a little catch-up: on New Year’s Eve morning, the message “Hammer Smashed Mordecai” was posted on Summer Slaughter’s Facebook page, a not-so-subtle hint that Cannibal Corpse and Between the Buried and Me will be appearing on the 2012 bill. Those two bands alone would make the tour worth attending even if the rest of the lineup was dominated by scene bands, but fortunately it appears as if that won’t be an issue. Now today Heavy Blog is reporting an unconfirmed rumor that The Faceless, Job For A Cowboy, Veil of Maya, and Hate Eternal will all be a part of Summer Slaughter as well. Alkahest doesn’t name his source for these rumors so they should be taken with a grain a salt, but he’s usually right on the money so we’re inclined to believe there’s at least some merit there. For what it’s worth, the Summer Slaughter Facebook page did post about Hate Eternal (and, interestingly, Exhumed) back in October and Veil of Maya this past Friday.

Unfortunately, that’s all we got right now. If the rumors are true, the 2012 edition of Summer Slaughter is going to be one of the best lineups for the tour ever. Hopefully there’ll be official confirmation soon. It’s only January and SS usually doesn’t run until July/August, but we’d say it’s already time to get psyched. In the meantime, feel free to celebrate/denounce this rumor in the comments section, and to fantasize about what other bands you’d like to see on the bill. Personally, we’re keeping my fingers crossed for an Abacabb reunion!

tl;dr: some dude says that The Faceless, Job for a Cowboy, Veil of Maya, and Hate Eternal will be on Summer Slaughter.

Honestly, I wouldn't really care if JFAC ended up on the lineup. Sure, they could get a band like Oceano or The Red Chord instead, and then I'd bitch about it, but JFAC doesn't suck as much as Six Feet Under, Within the Ruins, As Blood Runs Black, or Whitechapel do :tp:

I could see Beneath the Massacre playing it since they are releasing an album next month and have already played it three times in the past. Also, Aborted could be a possibly, judging by releasing an album this year and playing it in the past. I hope there's some bands I haven't seen before, but not getting my hopes up for that.

That lineup would be beyond incredible for me. The only somewhat "meh" band for me would be JFAC, but I would still enjoy 'em a lot, especially if they played shit primarily from Gloom and Ruination.

And I actually really, really want to see I Declare War on there. I really loved their S/T 2011 release. :D And they were awesome last time I saw 'em live. Job, Veil, and them would fill up the deathcore prerequisite.

And I still think BTBAM is weirdly out of place. Whatever, it'll be a relaxation break before Corpse.

I think the pits would be good for BTBAM during a Summer Slaughter show except last time I saw I Declare War I didn't care for them. Their lead singer wouldn't stop flexing the entire show. Oh well I still got their drummer to sign a cd for me. :rocker:

They've never actually used 8 strings on any of their previously released material. Only on their upcoming album/s will they actually be using them.

And if you don't get the 8 string or think they can't be used for anything other than wannabe Meshuggah riffs, watch this:

They're probably announcing one band confirmed. Hopefully they do the opposite of last year where they announced 2 awesome bands (Fleshgod Apocalypse and Dying Fetus) and then reveal the lineup which turns out to be a pile of elephant diarrhea. They should just announce shitty deathcore/djent bands #1 and #2 and then reveal the lineup which is hopefully what SS has been making it out to be (Exhumed, Hate Eternal, Cannibal Corpse, etc.)

Yeah seriously. Last year was looking really good then it went to shit. Based on the posts Summer Slaughter made last year Cannibal Corpse seems pretty much locked up though. And if Between the Buried and Me is co-headliner that's a big step up from last year. I didn't care for them much when I saw them with Mastodon but at least it wouldn't be another Whitechapel.

If it's Cannibal Corpse headlining I'm definitely going. I still have yet to see them live. I missed out in '09 for Mayhem but they probably had a shorter set then. Oh and they played the Hollywood Palladium once too after that that I missed out on.

I recommend definitely going if Cannibal Corpse is playing. I've seen them three times and they ALWAYS...ALWAYS kill it live, even with time slots like they were given at Mayhem. Plus, the set list has changed quite a bit with each time.

Oh really? Hmmm, it was in 2010 too. That's the year I started following tour announcements and going to shows frequently, but I don't remember hearing about this one. Not sure how that slipped by me. I actually missed out on a lot of shows in 2010 too though so if I had heard about it I probably still would've missed it.

It's almost assuredly Cannibal Corpse + BTBAM. I really REALLY dislike BTBAM, but it's still cool they appear to have booked them, cause they have a really big fan base, and a lot of people really do like them. Hate Eternal and Exhumed would be fucking awesome for support, I agree it would be a shitty thing to do to false advertise like they did last year.

Would be cool if they announced the dates and lineup sooner than April, which is when they did so last year.

Between The Buried And Me
Job For A Cowboy
Exhumed
VEIL OF MAYA
STRUCTURES
Periphery
Decapitated
Cannibal Corpse
KALAKAI
The Faceless
All Shall Perish
Rings of Saturn

Darkest Hour
Conducting From The Grave
whitechapel
As Blood Runs Black
The Black Dahlia Murder
FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE

Winds of Plague

ALSO I THINK SKELETONWITCH IS GOING TO BE ON IT

I actually talked to Revocation's merch guy at the Bodom show in Charlotte and he stated that the band had no other touring plans at the moment. It sounds like they've already got the whole lineup booked, so unfortunately I don't think they'll be on it =/.

I don't understand the BTBAM hate at all.

Are their time signature changes too complex? Regardless, this lineup is already amazing. If this comes anywhere in Florida I'll be there.

I'm a BTBAM "hater". Well, I don't HATE them, I just can't get into them. I'll give ya a few reasons why. First off, I don't mean to disrespect the band, nor your opinion. This is just my opinion and nothing else. And as JD and others will tell you, I'm definately not a metal nerd.

I agree, they can be brutal, and yes I do enjoy those parts. But for whatever reason, I just can't dig their melodic parts. There are some death metal (I don't listen to any prog bands) bands that I do enjoy their melodies, but I just don't w/ BTBAM. Also, I really dislike their random ass polka and other bizarre stuff that's randomly thrown into song of their songs. Just doesn't work for me, and it in fact irritates me. There were a couple like that when I saw them at New England Metal + Hardcore Fest. To sum it up, I prefer brute to tech and melody, and I find BTBAM to be too wank. That's basically why I don't like them.

However, I respect the hell out of them as musicians and songwriters, because they are talented and have built a quality fanbase. I thoroughly enjoy seeing bands like this sell a lot of records instead of seeing deathcore bands sell well.

Hmm some interesting comments. Some don't like the melodic parts, some don't like the vocals, etc. As someone who does love all of that, all I can hope is that you one day get used to it. I would say they have more metal parts than melodic parts overall, so maybe that can help ease some of you in. I have heard the complaint about their random polka tidbits, but those just make the songs more memorable to me.

I would imagine their SS setlist would contain songs that have bit more emphasis on heavy. I could see something like:

Specular Reflection
Obfuscation
(B) The Decade of Statues
All Bodies
Ants of the Sky (please please please!)
Alaska
Disease, Injury, Madness
Selkies: The Endless Obsession

Although if they wanna throw in stuff like Swim to the Moon, Sun of Nothing, Lunar Wilderness, or even a cover like Blackened, I wouldn't mind...

Yeah I've seen them twice and they haven't done either song. Keep in mind that set wasn't my dream set, but it's just what I would realistically expect, considering this is Summer Slaughter. My dream set would probably look something like:

Foam Born (A) the Backtrack
(B) Decade of Statues
Alaska
Specular Reflection
Ants of the Sky
Prequel to the Sequel
Lunar Wilderness
Mordecai
Fossil Genera - A Feed from Cloud Mountain
Desert of Song
Swim to the Moon

Encore:
Mirrors
Obfuscation
Selkies: The Endless Obsession

I'd throw Viridian -> White Walls on there, but I've seen it already (although I did see Mirrors -> Obfuscation too), and it takes up time that other songs could have.

I still don't know why people have a problem with The Faceless, other than the fact they're probably the slowest working band around.



Also the fact people on facebook keep calling them deathcore. They're definitely not, they're tech death.

I like The Faceless. A lot.

I don't like how they've basically been a part of every Summer Slaughter except one, and that year they like headlined one of the international versions.

No, that award goes to Wintersun and Necrophagist.

Also the fact people on facebook keep calling them deathcore. They're definitely not, they're tech death.

Their first album has a lot of deathcore tendencies, and that's a good enough reason for some people.

The Faceless played some dates last year even, so they are apparently the tour promoters' favorite band. I don't mind though. I like The Faceless a lot, it'd be nice to see a new band on there but oh well, they'd probably put a deathcore band on there anyways.

I still haven't seen the Faceless, and would still love to see them on Summer Slaughter, but I feel like Sumeriancore is kind of dying out, and I've become increasingly uninterested in it over the past year. I guess I'll love to see the Faceless, but more out of a "old band I used to love 2-3 years ago" rather than a band I love currently.

Hope we get some more brutal death rep on this tour.

Not in any particular order, of course. I really hope Hate Eternal and Exhumed get billed over them though, but I also wouldn't be surprised if VOM got higher billing too, given the Sumerian bias.

But hey, the good news is that Veil of Maya are the only pure deathcore band on the lineup so far.

I was already pretty positive that Veil of Maya would be on it since they are releasing an album this month and this tour seems to get a hard-on for Sumerian bands. Periphery though!?!? They don't sound horrible live, but I really dislike their music. If Betraying the Martyrs is on this...I just quit, I dunno what I quit, but I just fucking quit. Fucking Sumerian bands...

With the exception of Exhumed, all of the confirmed/rumored bands so far are on either Metal Blade or Sumerian Records. Just an interesting tidbit.

Veil of Maya is even starting to stray from pure deathcore from the sounds of their new stuff. On the topic of Periphery being on there, they may be a bit out of place, but they are a great band, so it doesn't really matter to me. On the topic of the billing, Exhumed will probably billed over Veil of Maya, Hate Eternal DEFINITELY won't be.

Also I bet I'm the only that is hoping Hate Eternal isn't on there:eyes:
