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
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
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!
