The line up for Summer Slaughter was recently announced and GOD DAMN this year is going to be huge! This grouping of bands is probably not what people were expecting. There’s much more of a focus on variety rather than Death Metal which has its ups and downs. But Summer Slaughter is an extreme metal tour, not purely Death Metal.

The headliner this year will be The Dillinger Escape Plan! The supporting acts include Animals As Leaders, Periphery, Norma Jean, Cattle Decapitation, The Ocean, Revocation, and Aeon.

If that doesn’t sound great enough, you also get to vote for the opening act! There’s a poll of 18 bands that you can find on the official Summer Slaughter Facebook page. So far it’s looking heavy with Rings of Saturn and Australia’s Thy Art Is Murder in the lead (UPDATE – Both Rings of Saturn and Thy Art Is Murder will be on the tour).

Check out the flyer along with some music down below! We’ll see you in the pit.
