Let's get this shit rolling early y'all!



SS just put on facebook :

Morbid Angel






If they do play there is no way they headline, or co-headline, they'd play in the same spot like Norma Jean did last year. SS plays HOB like MA did their last tour, only difference is SS packed the place and I heard MA had like 200 people.

That is why I am not believing anything until the official flyer comes out.

Everyone can go "OH LORDY LORDY MORBID ANGEL IS ON SUMMER SLAUGHTER." they did that last year with Gojira and other bands, I'm not falling for it.

Actually that was real. I talked to them about it twice and they turned down the offer because their slot would have been around 4pm every day and Erik didn't wanna do that.

My guess is they would have played in between Goatwhore and Exhumed.

And if any Sumerian band should get on it this year, it's After the Burial. They haven't played it since 2009, and it would at least be a breath of fresh air from The Faceless/Periphery/Veil of Maya. I don't have anything against those bands, but they need to ease it up a bit.

My guesses for this year, and I'll add Morbid Angel since they did:

*not in any order*

Morbid Angel
Triptykon
After The Burial
Born Of Osiris
Origin
Battlecross
Wormed
The Contortionist
Skeletonwitch
The Haunted
Magrudergrind
*Whoever wins the vote they do every year*

to be fair the gojira tease was a full 5 months before the lineup was announced

the teases were as follows:

2012
2011.10.12 - exhumed (yes)
2011.10.15 - hate eternal (no but were offered according to MPF)
2011.12.31 - cannibal corpse & between the buried and me (yes)
2012.02.01 - band announcements start

2013
2012.10.05 - children of bodom & dillinger escape plan (no, yes)
2012.10.07 - gojira & black dahlia murder (no, no)
2012.12.28 - all shall perish (no)
2013.01.11 - the ocean (yes)
2013.01.27 - aeon (yes)
2013.02.04 - cattle decapitation (yes)
2013.02.06 - revocation (yes)
2013.03.22 - lineup announcement

as you can see, by the beginning of each year they clearly had the bands pretty solidified. its not exactly unreasonable to think any bands teased at this point lean more to the side of likely than unlikely.

They're really hyping Morbid Angel for this. Hopefully this holds water and they are at least co-headlining.

Skeletonwitch seem pretty likely too, considering they have tour plans for the summer.

I think Morbid Angel should release another (MUCH better) album before touring again. They've toured the US at least twice since its been out.

it was like their first full-fledged US tour in like 10 years the first time they toured and the 2nd time they performed all of Covenant. Even on that first tour, they only played 3 songs from their latest album, and they were the best 3 songs from the album. They can definitely tour again leading a bill like this.

Seen Morbid Angel on both tours in the last couple years and both times were super awesome. I know it wont happen, but I would lose it if they did an Altars25th anniversary tour. My favorite death metal album of all time. Otherwise the rest of the lineup would determine if I go or not.

Altars is only 38:27 in length so its at least possible even on Summer Slaughter :)

Hopefully Periphery aren't on it again :barf:

Nickweiser
02-14-2014, 01:25 AM
Let's get real here.
Morbid Angel could've headlined this tour....in the 90's.

Morbid Angel just played the Chicago HOB on the Covenant tour and the venue draws around 1200 to 1300.

Less than 200 were there. I think around 150. Some of the people I know we're on the guest list for it.

A venue like Reggies would've been better suited for them. Or the Cobra Lounge.

Point being is this is the same venue that has held SS every year in Chicago and putting two and two together, not a good number when a band like Cannibal Corpse can pack those same venues w/o needing a tour like SS.

It can be a make or break performing to this type of crowd. I don't see them doing a tour where they would play only 30 mins with their large catalog, but after their last album they are definitely in need of a new generation of fans. I wonder if there will be a new album from MA in 2014

mankvill
02-14-2014, 02:20 AM
that's funny because they sold out a 1200-capacity venue here. In Lawrence fucking Kansas.

kalfitegrdan
02-14-2014, 02:42 AM
But the Chicago show had a bunch of shit openers. Morbid Angel could easily headline this with a lineup of nine other bands that draw from a bunch of different fanbases in the metal scene.

Nickweiser
02-14-2014, 02:57 AM
If their Periphery based bands dominating the bill, MA can count on playing to the same amount of people as last time. MA's show/tour with Grave and Dark Funeral at Mojoes in Joliet had a better turn out. But not by much. Probably 300ish showed for a venue made for 600.

Shit, last I checked, even bands like Periphery have been drawing more people. I which it were the other way around but it looks like Illud was the ultimate plummet for Morbid Angel.

Many fans in the 90s moved on and either got into more underground stuff. Or not so underground stuff. You know, those people who make up THAT excuse of I'm "too old" to listen to death metal.

Point being, I would be very surprised if MA headlined it. The only way I imagine that being possible is if it were all extreme metal bands playing. But considering this tour is run by the same guy who runs Sumerian Records, Ash basically now uses SS as an outlet to promote what is on his label.

AnataFan4Life
02-14-2014, 04:12 AM
If they can get a band like Meshuggah or GWAR or something to headline, then I could see Morbid getting the co-headlining spot.

you say this as if they give any fucks about making the lineups stylistically similar. its always been kinda all over the place, i dont know why people get so hung up on the idea that the tour is SUPPOSED to be "extreme" (whatever that means) or death or whatever.

remember the last time they had death metal legends headline? 4 bands under them that im guessing arent your definition of extreme

I could see Gwar since they got a new album and are still early in the touring process. I can see Meshuggah going for that but I don't think they will be up for a 3rd tour of the States after doing 2 of them for Koloss.

I know they got a 25th anniversary thing their talking but my guess Is that'll be more specific like maybe 3 US shows: Chicago. LA, and NYC be my guess

Nickweiser
02-14-2014, 04:47 AM
I actually love BTBAM. I wouldn't call them extreme metal but more of a heavier jam band. I don't mind diversity at all. But Periphery put me into a depression.. (shivers)

The only kind if jam vibe BTBAM has is when tbehbay Selkies live or something. Nothing else about then is very jam band. It's calculated prog stuff

detuned
02-14-2014, 10:06 AM
calculated is the key word.

jam bands are largely defined by the abundance of improvisation, not even necessarily by a style or sound (though most sound like the fucking grateful dead).

BTBAM has little to no improv. not to mention sound absolutely nothing like the dead or phish.

I'd be surprised if The Faceless was on it. Glass Casket is allegedly working on new material and Wes Hauch just joined as their second guitarist and I wouldn't be surprised if The Faceless was also working on new material over the summer. Honestly I think the only Sumerian band that will be on this year is After the Burial.

I was skeptical about the Morbid Angel teasers, but I looked through the old posts on the SS Facebook page and they start posting confirmed bands in mid January, so it looks like this is set. I should also mention that for last year's tour Gojira was only posted by SS early on (in October) and the reason everybody here expected them to be on the lineup was that Wolverinekills claimed they were confirmed.

Edit: I just noticed that I pretty much reiterated detuned's more detailed post on the second page.

to be fair the gojira tease was a full 5 months before the lineup was announced

the teases were as follows:

2012
2011.10.12 - exhumed (yes)
2011.10.15 - hate eternal (no but were offered according to MPF)
2011.12.31 - cannibal corpse & between the buried and me (yes)
2012.02.01 - band announcements start

2013
2012.10.05 - children of bodom & dillinger escape plan (no, yes)
2012.10.07 - gojira & black dahlia murder (no, no)
2012.12.28 - all shall perish (no)
2013.01.11 - the ocean (yes)
2013.01.27 - aeon (yes)
2013.02.04 - cattle decapitation (yes)
2013.02.06 - revocation (yes)
2013.03.22 - lineup announcement

detuned
02-15-2014, 07:51 AM
i would imagine by this point the lineup is pretty close to finalized

also notice that unlike previous years, there have been absolutely no other teases than the morbid angel ones. perhaps they learned their lesson of throwing bands out there that werent close to definite and getting kids hopes up.

Nah nig say Suicide Silence is direct support then MA hits the stage. It would def be emptier for MA. Morbid Angel would benefit more if they were direct support for a headlining act that draws a crowd.

i would hope MPF understands this and more meant he doesnt understand why some people think MA cant headline.

while it may seem more beneficial for MA to take a support slot, and may seem likely that kids would clear out if MA was playing last, as MPF says, a tour like this is more about having a strong lineup overall than having a single huge band drive the draw. which obviously seems to be the strategy for any festival package tour, but even moreso for one dealing in "extreme", hence how all these technically not big bands always end up headlining.

besides, while i wont pretend to know a whole lot about MA, david vincent strikes me as the type of dude who would let ego trump doing something beneficial.

It's hard to say, they've had 5 diff headliners since the tour started and MA is most likely a bigger draw than Decapitated and Necrophagist. I don't think they currently are as big as Cannibal Corpse, BDM, and DEP. Hell BTBAM and Periphery may have bigger draws at the moment and they haven't headlined.

Morbid Angel is more iconic than BDM and DEP, but they sure as shit aren't as popular in 2014 than either of them.

Exactly, last year Periphery played Philly the same week as Morbid Angel and headlined a venue that holds 200 more people. Not to mention the MA show definitely didn't sell out. Meanwhile DEP is popular enough to play here 3 times now in the past year(all headlining).

Seems to me Morbid Angel is just as big of a draw with just as many sellouts. Morbid Angel toured by themselves and sold out here with just locals opening. Black Dahlia Murder played a smaller venue and didn't sell it out and DEP played the same venue and pulled a good crowd, but didn't sell it out.

And again, it seems like you all are only taking into account recent record sales. There are people who will go see Morbid Angel over Black Dahlia Murder and DEP based on nostalgia only.

They didn't sell out here by any means, and I'm just talking straight ticket sales not record sales(obviously a lot of people didn't like the last MA record). Headlining BDM filled the same venue and DEP basically sells out anytime they come here(and have done so in atleast 6 diff size venues if you count one in the suburbs). MA could headline, but expect someone younger to be direct support to bring in a crowd(even CC had BTBAM the year they played).

seperate day/venue last year, mixed in the year before.

admittedly, forgot about that devildriver rumor when i figured whitechapel would make sense for SS.

could understand them not wanting to announce the full SS lineup in the initial MTL announcement, but youd think they could have at least said SS (which i thought they did last year, but looking im not seeing a version sans the SS lineup), so maybe im wrong in assuming the "in the city" day before portion is that, or that they would slip a couple of the bigger bands into the general announcement.

It got better after the first song or two, almost zero crowd reaction though

Sounds about right, that happened at First Ave too.

If they just stick to the first 4 albums and a song or two off The Cold, they will get a great crowd response.

They better not be fucking with us this year. It's too damn good so far. I knew this was going to happen when Deathcore and Djent started slipping in fad popularity, I just thought it would have happened last year.

Enjoy it this year, next year a new genre of ass might come out and might take over Summer Slaughter.

Let's not count our chickens before they hatch, there's still slots left on the lineup that they can load up with trendy bands.

That being said, if the lineup keeps going in the direction its heading from the teasers, we may have one of the best Summer Slaughter lineups so far.

If these bands are on the top of the bill, I don't think there would be many trendy bands who would wanna be on this year if they could do their own thing.

I elluded to this last year and i turned out to be wrong in a lot of people's eyes (although I really liked last year's line up, all the bands I didn't wanna see I was doing interviews during, (just like in 2012).

I think it is ok in this case to count the eggs early because both of those genres are fading fast and nothing has taken it's place yet. So it's the perfect opportunity to showcase the best Metal bands. I will eat crow if I'm wrong, but I think this year, I won't be.

Also, if the lineup does shape up in this direction, everybody had better go this year, so we can show them that they can sell tickets without overtly relying on what's necessarily popular.

I know who Brad is.

Brain will not do this. Mike, Ruben, Brad and Kevin all probably would, but I don't see Brain agreeing. But I hope you're right.

Per Mike, from their forum:

"Ill shed what light I can for the moment. truth is, I dont know the whole story yet. basically, we were offered summer slaughter and I knew I would not be able to do it, but I didnt want to deny captain chris the opportunity, so I told him if he wanted to get it going, go for it. Other than that, all I know is what all of you know. If thats true, its awesome. Me and captain will be meeting up soon to discuss whats going on, so when I hear more, I will pass it one."

IMO if Mike isn't on the tour, it won't be the same. Ruben is obviously the better vocalist, but if not for Mike, this band would have been dead since 2002.

I've got a feeling that Black Dahlia might be on this. They have no plans during the time this tour runs, and they are on the Carcass tour right now, which could explain why they haven't announced this yet.

MPF
04-05-2014, 12:21 PM
It's a good theory, although I think they would have to be headlining for them to be on this year as they keep doing support slots here and need to do another real headlining tour for Everblack (the last one didn't come by me so it doesn't count :tongue: )

But again there is that mentality that Morbid Angel must be headlining this because they don't do support slots in the states anymore, although with their last tour, maybe that humbled them a bit and put some perspective on things, though I doubt it.

That said if TBDM are on this year, I wouldn't be disappointed, they just played here last night and put on one hell of a show.
