Summer Slaughter 2012 headliners announced

Initial details have been announced for The Summer Slaughter Tour 2012, the annual metal festival which began in 2007. Organizers have confirmed that Cannibal Corpse and Between The Buried And Me will headline the tour, as expected. Unfortunately, it looks like the Summer Slaughter people are going to string this out, with remaining participants to be announced each Sunday (one-by-one) via Facebook.

Strategic marketing campaign. Span the press releases over a long period of time so that they get the "complete" media coverage each time. Lambgoat will wright an article after each announcement.

Yay Sumerian records' take on what death metal should be...... Stop being a douche Ash, get Spawn of Possession and Ulcerate on these kind of tours. No one wants to see ABRB EVER again.

anonymous 2/1/2012 8:56:24 PM

anonymous 2/1/2012 9:27:12 PM

AKA a cleaver idea to get more people to "like" their page on Facebook. Idiots.

anonymous 2/1/2012 10:01:11 PM

Between the homo's and me. I don't care for their bullshit however GLASS CASKET WAS THE SHIT SON!!! fck I miss that band. It seems every band I dig quits. RIP Despised Icon and Ghost of a Fallen Age.

Allowing anonymous posting was a huge mistake.

anonymous 2/2/2012 11:15:25 PM

Better than having an account and people harassing you constantly because they disagree with your opinions or interests in music.

anonymous 2/3/2012 4:06:46 AM

Btbam owns all of your gay bands.
