yeah but they're technically the most popular death metal band ever. They even appeared on Ace Ventura, a very popular movie and I know so many people that know Hammered Smashed Face because of that scenes as well as playing it in Rock Band.

Cannibal Corpse is mainstream only in the sense that they have sold a lot of CDs, two of their CDs have sold over a million units.

I've talked to people who don't listen to metal, and they've seen my shirt and gone "Cannibal Corpse? I've heard of them." Cannibal Corpse is basically the go-to death metal band for everyone. If you know what metal is, you know who Cannibal Corpse is.

If they do manage to get Cannibal Corpse to headline Summer Slaughter, I could imagine it really boosting ticket sales.

Not always, though surprisingly a lot of non-metal people do know them. However, the arguments that Cannibal Corpse aren't mainstream death metal are preposterous. Hey, no one's calling death metal mainstream, but as far as the genre itself goes, Cannibal Corpse are quite mainstream.

Cannibal Corpse is without a doubt the most popular death metal band around, I just wouldn't call them "mainstream". Back on topic, it would be awesome if they headlined Summer Slaughter.

Cannibal Corpse are fairly mainstream in the grand scheme of things. They were hardly unknown when they got on the Mayhem festival, and everyone knows their logo. All they really need is some high profile lawsuit for their music being blamed for someones suicide or mental breakdown and they'll be all over commercial radio :P

They'd make a very suitable Summer Slaughter headliner though!

Cannibal Corpse was in Ace Ventura and were one of the main bands campaigned against to censor music by...I think it was Bob Dole. He namechecked them in a speech, I think.

But yeah. I think Cannibal Corpse is too big to do Summer Slaughter, but if they are on it then that means they'll probably step up the venue sizes for SS.

Derp?
Summer Slaughter played bigger venues this year than Cannibal Corpse headlining a year or so ago. Cannibal Corpse is no way too big for Summer Slaughter.
