By guess is that Dillinger and either Born of Osiris or After the Burial (or maybe both since they both have new records coming out next year) will be on it.

Yeah, they're prog metal and stuff, but their music can get pretty heavy at times. Not to mention their older stuff was much less progressive.

If anything, it made less sense having Periphery. Either way, whatever this tour claims to be ("Most Extreme Tour of the Year"?) should be taken with a grain of salt.

mastodon421
12-13-2012, 04:00 PM
I honestly don't think Black Dahlia is on this again, I really think they are on Mayhem Fest. Bodom is definitely a contender to headline and I can totally see Gojira doing this as well. As for Oceano, Just no. I can't speak for the rest of the country, but Oceano got a tepid crowd response at Summer Slaughter 2011 here (Only them and Six Feet Under got a lukewarm crowd responses). Personally, I really hope they're are not on there. Their live show has gotten remarkably worse and their set at NEMHF last year was absolute torture (Worst sound mix I've ever heard, It sounded like a fucking disturbed beehive.) I fully trust Ash to put together another great lineup for 2013, Summer Slaughter hasn't had a single bad lineup to date imo.

dcmetal108
12-13-2012, 07:37 PM
I really wish instead of doing Mayhem or a fest BDM just did another headliner and got great openers with them again.

And Oceano during SS 2011 had a great crowd response with a insane pit. Though that may be due to being a hometown show.

The best thing about SS 2011 was after Oceano when I was chilling by the bathrooms, my friend came walking by carrying my other friend. He looks at me and says, "I fucked up my leg so bad, but I took out so many of those hardcore dancers. Totally worth it, man." :lol:

I kind of like them, but they should definitely try to go for a completely fresh line-up this year.

Besides, it's not like they're actually confirmed. I'll just wait until they make some sort of official announcement. At this point they could have an update asking about any band in the world and it would just as likely as the other bands they've asked about showing up on the tour.

I'd say Amon Amarth and Behemoth are on the same level. No way they are even close to Bodom though (in the US)

rjturtle9
12-30-2012, 10:03 PM
Amon Amarth sold out the same venues that Bodom do by them selves. Bodom needs other pretty big openers to do that. Amon Amarth are the bigger band based on concerts they do here.

Yeah, but how long ago?

They both play the mainstage at Wacken and other Euro metalfests, but Amon Amarth sold out the same venue here as the sole band playing that Bodom got really close to selling out with Eluveitie and some other openers.

I would MUCH RATHER SEE BODOM HOLY SHIT, but Amon Amarth is bigger. Children of Bodom is kinda like Babby's first metal band in high school, but Amon Amarth is like Babby's first metal band that they think makes them cool.

Ommie
12-30-2012, 11:11 PM
I think they opened for them sometime last year, but I don't think it was in the US, so it's probably not applicable.

I still think CoB is more popular, but not by very much. If anything, them co-headlining wouldn't be out of the question here.

The way I see it, this tour is only getting bigger so any bands that are less popular than Cannibal Corpse and BTBAM are unlikely to headline. CoB sounds the most likely of all the names being thrown around. CoB and Amon Amarth would be sweet. Machine Head would be weird because they don't really count as an extreme metal band.

Behemoth im very sure are playing Mayhem. Someone i know who worked on the Barge To Hell cruise said Nergal himself confirmed this.


I dont honestly see ND being a co headliner. If they were to do it i predict 3rd to last but who knows i could be wrong and stranger things have happened. Definitely wanna see ND again asap!

I am expecting DEP to be co-headliner this year along with at least one other Sumerian band considering Ash organizes it. The Faceless have been on it nearly every year so they are a possibility, Born of Osiris and After The Burial both will have new albums as well.

I would prefer Behemoth to Children of Bodom for the headliner but I think it will be one of these two. For old school bands I could see Napalm Death, Morbid Angel or Broken Hope (they are working on a new album) filling that role nicely.

maybe Bodom and Dillinger?!?! VERY odd combination if so.



So we now know Behemoth, The Black Dahlia Murder and Machine Head have no involvement. I love em all but only Behemoth woulda made sense to have been on SS.

I would not be surprised if All Shall Perish is considered a headline type slot whether last or 2nd to last. They haven't done SS since 2010 and haven't done a major market headline tour.

BUT, Bodom and Dillinger both have new records coming out so that can be the 2 closing it out.

Has anyone thought about if Hatebreed or Amon Amarth can headline it?!

Hatebreed has a new album on the way and can use a major market tour like this and they've always brought bands on tour with them that would be on this.

Also i think Amon Amarth may be possible too. New record on the way and i think they only have a couple overseas shows booked in June if memory serves correct.

You think so?! I mean am a fan of Hatebreed but when they do headline tours in the States its the same venues that this tour hits. They have put Cannibal Corpse, All Shall Perish, Whitechapel, Dying Fetus on their own tours before. Shit one of the few bands who would actually take out Napalm Death on the road. Not many bands willing to do that.

For over a decade when Hatebreed headlines in Philly they do the Electric Factory(which holds 2,500-3,000). Meanwhile when Summer Slaughter comes it does either the Trocadero(which holds 1,200) or the TLA(which holds 1,000).

I see what your sayin. Ya im from the corrupt city of the Chicagoland area. Slaughter hits the Chitown HOB and that's where Hatebreed headlines. Im also near Milwaukee, WI and thats the same venue Hatebreed headline and SS go for Milwaukee.

Your numbers in Philly show different and are accurate. I guess well just find out when announcement hits

Bodom and Dillenger might be a bit strange but it could work. Amon Amarth headlining would be awesome though and so far they only have dates for a few European festivals in June.

I don't think All Shall Perish are big enough to co-headline but I could easily see them in the slot that The Faceless had last year (right before headliners).

dcmetal108

If Hatebreed was on it the venue for Chicago might be the same. They sold out the HOB in Nov. but this month on tour they are playing a small town at a venue less the half the size.

I am accepting reality and you're high if you think Whitechapel would ever play above Morbid Angel. That's like saying Whitechapel would headline above Carcass.

Yes, their last album sucked dick, but what does that matter? Their last tour they played three songs off it, and they were the three best songs on the album. Morbid Angel's legendary status trumps any other thing you might think would stop them from headlining literally anything they do. The only reason they co-headlined with Kreator in Europe is because MA played Europe all the time at the time of that tour.

Morbid Angel toured the US last year. When was their last tour before that? 2003? 2004? There's way more of a want for Morbid Angel than Whitechapel for the simple fact that Whitechapel tours 10 times a year and Morbid Angel could possibly be doing their 2nd US run in almost 10 years.

And I don't really know what you mean bringing up that Pantera tour. Pantera had reached godlike status at that point in their career and any band, no matter how big they are in the underground, would jump at the chance to open for that tour. Huge exposure.

Pantera tour. You said MA had pull. Trey is best friends with and lived in Anselmo's house yet played several shows opening for the then unknown at the time Nothingface on that tour. I thought that 'pull' would have been a bit more, such as Nothingface opening for MA on that tour instead of rotating or whatever it was they were doing.

While I agree that MA should without any doubt headline over WC I am stating that they won't in the US. MA has had a legendary career that deserves the right to do so but unfortunately promoters/tour organizers are the ones who don't care about that shit any more. Its all about the $ and my point is that Summer Slaughter and Mayhem Fest vets like WC would unfortunately headline over MA on US tour.

First of all, the tour with Nothingface you're talking about was in 2001. There was no widespread internet metal scene where kids could find out about Morbid Angel by going on YouTube. I'll venture a guess that since Nothingface did the "alternative metal" bullshit that they were more popular than Morbid Angel in 2001. Morbid Angel obviously wins out in the end and wins out with the underground metal fans who know their shit, but Pantera fans probably weren't the most fleshed out heavy metal fans in 2001. That's all that means. Again - MA would've been insane not to jump at any chance to open for anyone on that tour.

And Morbid Angel = $$$ for any promoter. Are you crazy? Again, just like Carcass = $$$ for every promoter a few years back. It's the same situation, just Morbid Angel's time now.

I never said that. But I think most tour organizers would have WC over MA. Not that I like it or agree with it.

Back when Deathcore was relevant, MAAAAAAAAAAAYBE. I don't even feel right saying that.

Deathcore is all but dead and Djent is nearly all gone as well. I was actually told by the venue that the recent Emmure/Whitechapel tour that came through on the 2nd had a very minimal crowd. Granted Soundgarden was the same night about 2 blocks away, but that still says a lot.

The best Whitechapel would get is 2nd or 3rd from the top at this point.

Revocation is now confirmed. Also, the mascot on their tour poster apparently has a name >_<

Gojira, Cattle Decapitation, and Revocation sounds pretty damn tit-tacular so far, but I won't get my hopes up too much after what happened in 2011.

Remember - this is coming from a MA fan - this ain't Europe. Whitechapel as much as I hate to say it would headline over MA. Sad but true.

Very sad. Very true.

As people have already mentioned, it's all about $. Here in North America, WC would headline over MA on this tour.

I'm pretty sure Morbid Angel would definitely headline over Whitechapel for the simple reason that MA has more crossover appeal. More Whitechapel fans would stay for Morbid Angel than vice versa.

I still think WC would headline over MA. As ghey as that is, that's just what I think would happen. Whatever order they played, I'd be thrilled w/ MA just being on SS.

Not saying that I think they are on it, but Whitechapel would headline over MA for sure. MA doesn't even have a big enough draw to co-headline IMO.

Whitechapel is doing a small club tour right now but I've seen Whitechapel sell out HOB (same venue SS plays at here) with only a few smaller openers. Whitechapel has a huge draw from a wide audience as MA doesn't do full tours often and when they did play here last year they played a tiny venue and didn't sell it out.

If MA was on this they'd be under the co-headliner. In the spot Darkest Hour or SFU played in 2011.

Black Dahlia headlined over Whitechapel in 2011 and they usually play smaller or the same venues as Whitechapel. Hell, the last time I saw Black Dahlia before SS 2011 was at the small coffee shop in my town (although Whitechapel DID play there 3 days after that :lol:). I'm telling you it's the crossover appeal.

I doubt Morbid Angel would play SS if they're not at least co-headlining.

When I saw MA last year there was a pretty big crowd. The point that they don't tour often is a good one though, and I feel SS does still bring out what is left of the deathcore crowd. Still, i don't see MA doing it unless they co-headline, and I think they could easily play last, since the last band is usually always DM (except I guess BDM).

Deathcore is all but gone and Djent is on the way out, this is the eerie calm before the next shitstorm of shit music starts, it's the perfect time to get the best bands possible to play this.

You're probably right about Deathcore and wrong about Djent.
