The western hemisphere’s most extreme summer metal tour, Summer Slaughter, returned for its 8th annual assault across the US, flaunting performances by Morbid Angel, Dying Fetus, The Faceless, Thy Art Is Murder, Goatwhore, Origin, Decrepit Birth, Within The Ruins and Fallujah. Presented by IndieMerchstore, the summer bloodshed kicked off last month in San Francisco, CA and butchered through 20 plus markets before coming to an end last week in Philly. New York City hosted the onslaught on August 8 at a frenzy-filled Irving Plaza; belated photos from the NYC concert can be seen in this post.
Speaking of Goatwhore, the NOLA-based blackened death metal squad recently unleashed their sixth studio album, Constricting Rage of the Merciless, through Metal Blade. If you missed the band this time around, Goatwhore will be back in NYC on November 1 at Best Buy Theater, supporting a reunited Samhain (feat. Glenn Danzig), as previously announced. Tickets to the show, which also features Midnight, are still available.
