The initial line-up for Summer Slaughter 2013 has been announced, and, as per usual, it is hot hot hot. In addition to previously-rumored acts  The Dillinger Escape Plan and The Ocean, the bill will feature Animals as Leaders, Periphery, Norma Jean, Cattle Decapitation, Revocation, and Aeon. As our buddy Nick might say, “That’s a damn fine line-up, son!”

Dates have yet to be announced, but this should keep you occupied in the meantime: as is the case with every Summer Slaughter, the tour’s organizers are once again allowing fans to decide which band should open the show every night. This year’s candidates are as follows:

  • Abiotic
  • As They Burn
  • Dark Sermon
  • Erra
  • Fit for an Autopsy
  • Howl
  • Intervals
  • Into the Flood
  • King Conquer
  • Last Chance To Reason
  • My Bitter End
  • Nekrogoblikon
  • Rings of Saturn
  • Syqem
  • Soreption
  • Vektor
  • Today I Caught The Plague
  • Thy Art is Murder

There are a bunch of excellent bands on this list who I’d be totally stoked to see make the cut. My gut tells me that given the size of their online followings, either Last Chance to Reason or Abiotic end up getting the slot. Go here to cast your vote.
