Summer Slaughter 2012 lineup revealed
This entire post has been updated a few times, so rather than append the latest information to the end where nobody will see it, I'm going to put it at the top. You can read everything down below for context, but here is the actual Summer Slaughter 2012 lineup in its proper order: Cannibal Corpse Between The Buried And Me The Faceless Periphery Veil of Maya Job For A Cowboy Goatwhore Exhumed Cerebral Bore ---------------------------
The folks behind the 2012 edition of the Summer Slaughter Tour have been slowly (and inconsistently) announcing the lineup for the tour. Thus far, Cannibal Corpse, Between the Buried and Me, The Faceless, Exhumed, Goatwhore, and Veil of Maya have all been officially announced. The last announcement took place on February 20th. In the interim, a few bands have been strongly rumored though not announced, most notably Job For A Cowboy.
On Saturday, we received word that the August 11th lineup of Canada's Heavy Mtl fest included all of the announced Summer Slaughter bands in addition to Job For A Cowboy and Periphery.
Then this morning, MetalSucks noted that a Mayhem Festival 2012 Facebook account (I say "a" account because it is NOT the official RockStar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival Facebook page). Although Metalsucks was assuming the account is the official Fest one, it is not. In other words, we're not sure who runs that account, but nevertheless, they posted what they claim to be the "Summer Slaughter 2012 Lineup" and their lineup is as follows:
Between The Buried And Me
Job For A Cowboy
Veil of Maya
So who the fuck knows, but I think when you look at all of the evidence, it's pretty safe to assume that Job For A Cowboy and Periphery will be the next two bands announced by Summer Slaughter organizers. And Fleshgod Apocalypse may be part of the lineup as well.
Oh well, we've done way too many Summer Slaughter 2012 posts, so this may be the last until the dates are announced.
