The Scoop: For a few years now, the annual Summer Slaughter tour has been a highlight of the summer months and looked forward to in the minds of Death Metal fans across the United States. This year the tour brings the Dillinger Escape Plan to the headlining stage along with Animals As Leaders, Periphery, Norma Jean, Cattle Decapitation, The Ocean, The Red Chord and Aeon and will be bringing it down under Times Square at the incredible Best Buy Theater. What makes it all the more exciting is that thanks to the folks at AEG, I’ll be putting some lucky PiercingMetal readers into the venue. Read more on how you can participate.
When and Where: Wednesday, August 7th at Best Buy Theater (1515 Broadway, NYC)
To Participate: With the number of killer bands performing on this tour there are bound to be favorites in the minds of the Metal masses. Let me know the three bands that you are most excited to see and what makes them so awesome in your opinion. I will be picking the most convincing ones out and letting them know right after their comment.

As there are eight unique bands on this year’s event, I went around and scanned and scoured the Amazon.com domain for something from each and every one of the performers. Whew, what a task that was. Anyway, should you need to dig into more for your musical edification, please give one or all of these links a whirl.
