If you’ve ever attended a headlining run by one of the crushing bands on the circuit and wondered what the hell they were thinking when it came to the selected opening acts, I can assure you that you will not be musing anything of the sort when it comes to the “Meditations Over North America” from Kataklysm. This tour is an exciting one and you can learn more about it via the official press release down below. Don’t worry I will return at the close.

They say that all good things must come to an end and such is the case with original Suffocation lead singer Frank Mullen who will be stepping down from the lineup to pursue other aspects of his life. Read the full press release below and mark down the dates that will be coming near you.
The Press Release:
New York death metal pioneers SUFFOCATION have announced dates for their final North American tour with original vocalist Frank Mullen.

You’ve probably been hoping for this sort of information for a couple of weeks now because as the summer makes its way towards us, the news about the annual “Summer Slaughter Tour” usually comes at us as well. I am happy to announce that this time is upon the Metal Legions of the US of A. Now if you’ve witnessed any of these events over the last few years you are fully aware about its being the “Most Extreme Tour Of The Summer”. I’m not being flippant here as that is their actual byline. I didn’t see any specific press release for this year’s event outside of the bands that make up the roster and the tour dates/venues so we are keeping this one simple and easy to digest. Headlining the tour each and every night will be the mighty Cannibal Corpse, a band that is nothing less than legendary in the Death Metal genre. The main direct support band is going to be Nile and this will be on all nights of the tour. No swapping the slot is planned to my knowledge but you never know what can happen during this kind of tour. The Summer Slaughter for 2016 will also feature After the Burial, Krisiun, Suffocation, Revocation, Carnifex and a few more. The tour is being presented by American Satan and will be the 10th straight year of this sort of concert mayhem. Good to see a tour like this can handle the dramatically shifting terrain that our scene comes with. Though the tour itself was announced not too long ago, the exact stops were released only this past weekend and I tend to hold back on sharing here until we get the full scoop. Check out the dates and places below and mark your calendars on your mobile devices. Continue reading Behold The Full Dates For “Summer Slaughter Tour” 2016→
I’ve been musing aloud about the number of incredibly crushing Metal tours that were happening and just the other day the folks at Metal Injection revealed their full lineup for a tour that they have put together called “Devastation On The Nation” for 2015. It places a co-headlining Origin with Brazilian brutality purveyors Krisiun and you can check out the poster below.
From top to bottom the lineup for this touring package will be Origin, Krisiun, Aeon, Alterbeast, Soreption and Ingested. At the point of this writing no venues nor the amount of stops happening have been set up. I’ll share that stuff when I see it posted as well for good measure. I wanted to make sure that this information was conveyed to my always awesome readers in case they are dealing with younger siblings who are insane over the departure of Zayn Melik from One Direction. Take this action as a queue to educate said siblings into the Metal ways. See you next time but before you go let’s discuss what you think about this package and where you would like to see it happen in terms of venue in the comments section.
