There's nothing as invigorating as getting fully immersed in a sea of blood and thrashing bodies to get rid of a "case of the Mondays," and that's exactly what the extensive metal bill on the Summer Slaughter Tour promises. Well, maybe not the blood, but definitely the thrashing bodies.
Headliners Decapitated perform death metal with technical panache and agro-inflections that satisfy the most violent head-banging. Prior to their audio assault will be a mixture of subgenres of the metal scene that's actually a neat blend of established and rising acts doing the heavy, death, and dark metals well. Supporting bands include the Faceless, All Shall Perish, Cephalic Carnage, Veil of Maya, Carnifex, Decrepit Birth, Animals as Leaders, and the Red Chord as well as other outfits that will get your sleeveless T's sweaty. Remember when ambulances would be on standby outside of metal shows? Well, let's keep it civil, but let's have it loud!
