SUMMER SLAUGHTER TOUR SLAUGHTERS SUMMER, YOU

120

Black Dahlia Murder

Thanks to MetalSucks reader Zack H. for pointing out our lack of coverage of the Summer Slaughter Tour, the lineup for which was announced earlier this week. The tour will tear through the U.S. in June and July, and seems to fill the role of the less commercial, more brutal traveling summer festival niche that Sounds of the Underground has filled in years past (as compared to the bigger, more commercial Ozzfest, and now Rockstar Mayhem Energy Tour). The lineup is:

The Black Dahlia Murder
Kataklysm
Vader
Cryptopsy
The Faceless
Despised Icon
Aborted
Born Of Osiris
Psycroptic
Whitechapel

All in all it’s shaping up to be a pretty fucking awesome summer for metal shows, no? Full list of tour dates after the jump.
