As there are eight unique bands on this year’s event, I went around and scanned and scoured the 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.

  1. I want to go so bad. I love pretty mch every band on this. I would REALLY appreciate it if I can go. Animals as leaders is my favorite and Ive never seen them before

    1. Well since you do stress that you like ALL OF THE BANDS I guess we can accept that. I did expect a little more “oomph” though Miss Ericka, and that being said congrats as you have won a ticket for the Summer Slaughter show at Best Buy Theater on Wednesday. Please stay tuned to the comments for the full details on how you claim this at the show.

  2. Ok lets see revocation is this generation version of death and thats alway awesome and if im right dave davidson is related to chuck, the dillenger escape i herd has some of the best stage present only like number two to jason butler of letlive and the red chord is just fuck fulls of engery and agression and thos two put together are always fun and i cant spell so dont hate im aware of this

    1. Alright Mr. Dicks I like your gusto even if I am appalled by this horrendous spelling (I expect you to work on that the next time around) so congratulations you will be seeing the Summer Slaughter at the Best Buy Theater on Wednesday. Stay tuned to the comments for the full details on how you claim this at the show.

  3. Top three bands that I’d like to see on the Summer Slaughter tour are Revocation, Animals As Leaders, and Cattle Decapitation.

    Revocation because I’ve always missed their tours due to being away at college and everything from Dismantle The Dictator all the way up to their new self titled album that’s due out a day before the NYC date. I’m sure they’ll be playing a few new tracks and it’d be killer to tear the pit up to them.

    Animals As Leaders because how can you pass them up? I remember seeing them at Summer Slaughter 2010. The entire audience was in zombie-like awe, being mesmerized by Tosin’s incredible shredding. Since then, Weightless has come out and become one of the CDs I love throwing on from time to time, so what would be even better than finally seeing some tracks like New Eden live?

    Then last but absolutely not least, Cattle Decapitation because Travis Ryan is one of my favorite frontmen of all time. Saw them at my second metal show back in 2006 and his stage presence was off the hook; spitting and catching it back in his mouth and flying across the stage as fast as (if not faster) than Josh riffing away. And then his range is something to reckon with, as Travis’ cavemen bellows can morph into manic psychotic shrieks within milliseconds. This is fucking death metal at its finest and I need to see them one more time. Monolith Of Inhumanity was my favorite album of 2012 and I must hail the bands for their efforts.

    All the other bands would be great to see, as I do not have much time nowadays to discover new music now working full time. So pick me!

    1. Congratulations Jimi, that was a super convincing argument and as result you have won a ticket for the Summer Slaughter on Wednesday at the Best Buy Theater. Stay tuned to the comments as I will be posting the full details on how you claim this at the show.

  4. Alright then my Metal Fiends, this contest is closed so please no more entries. Congratulations to our three winners in Jimi, Ericka and James, we hope you have a blast at this massive event. On the day of the show, bring proper identification and show it when you go to the box office. Your name will be on the list and should you encounter any difficulty, please politely ask for an onsite manager and reference that this contest was done in conjunction with AEG’s Marketing Team. They’ll be able to sort it out for you for sure. Be sure to let us know how it is as I am NOT attending.
