You say to hell with ’em and do your own tour. A while back fans were given a chance to vote on who the opener would be for Summer Slaughter this year. The winning band was the (god awful) Within The Ruins. A deathcore band being picked to open up for Summer Slaughter. I gotta say I am not surprised. Anyway, I will not be attending Summer Slaughter and I highly doubt we will be covering it whatsoever, but I figured some of you might find it interesting that the bands that didn’t win the opener spot on the tour but were nominated decided to go it alone.
Conducting From The Grave, The Contortionist, Scale The Summit, Rings of Saturn, Volumes and Structures are the bands that will be hitting the road as the Summer Survivors tour. Some of these bands I am familiar with, some I am not. Few I have actually listened to. I know Conducting From The Grave. Typical deathcore turned metalcore band. Scale The Summit are a pretty interesting progressive metal band that I actually enjoy. The Contortionist, as I understand are a technical deathcore band. I didn’t even know that was a specific genre. I think I’ve listened to them before. Apparently they didn’t interest me enough to remember who they are. Rings of Saturn are not terrible. I can actually get into their sound. Volumes and Structures I have no idea about and I am honestly too lazy to look them up.
If this interests you, you can check these bands out on the Slaughter Survivors Tour. Dates after the jump. [Continue Reading]
