Summer Slaughter Tour at Revolution Live was nine hours of an intense auditory attack. Inside the pit, hair viciously spun around like psychedelic tops. In between songs, bands got one-on-one with the crowd, and the audience responded back with its best attempts at a Corpsegrinder voice.
At a show as hard, loud, and dark as this one, there's a lot of pressure riding on one's ability to be metal. One important metal indicator is your band T-shirt. You're not gonna find a Mariah Carey top in this crowd. Choosing the right one to wear to a daylong metal show, then, is a crucial decision. Luckily, we found the top five metal shirts of the day and learned about the people behind these brutal threads.
