2012 Summer Slaughter Tour shaping up to be the metal show to see this summer
The Summer Slaughter Tour has never been one to disappoint. With alumnus ranging from The Faceless and Born Of Osiris to The Black Dahlia Murder, Whitechapel & many more, the tour has constantly provided fans with some of the best (and heaviest) metal out there. With much of the 2012 lineup recently announced, fans may rejoice once again because the roster is stacked.
For the summer festivals 6th anniversary, some heavy hitters are coming out to tear your city to pieces. You're going to want to lace those boots up tight and get ready for a hell of a ride. As if headliners Cannibal Corpse weren't brutal enough, the sonic onslaught that co-headliners Between The Buried And Me delivers is what droves of fans typically pay full-price for and pack into sold-out shows for. Add to the equation Goatwhore, Exhumed, The Faceless, Periphery, Veil of Maya & Job For A Cowboy and I'm not sure whether to be excited to giddyness or frightened to death at what is going to transpire in the yet-to-be-determined Tri-State area venue in a few months.
The dates and venues for the tour are yet to be announced. A contest is currently being held for an opening spot on the bill, with 10 different up and coming metal acts being given the chance to be voted onto the bill. Head on over to this page to cast your vote.
More information will be provided as it becomes available. Tri-State Rock will be on-hand for the 2012 Summer Slaughter Tour and will have FULL coverage, including interviews with the bands on the bill, reviews, photos and more!
