Ten bands, representing five different countries, will join forces June 20th in Detroit to kick off the Summer Slaughter Tour of 2008.

Summer Slaughter founder Ash Avildsen had this to say regarding the tour: "After the astounding success of Summer Slaughter 2007 and the high demand from the underground metal community for bringing the tour back for a second year, we had no choice but to make it a reality again! We put a lot of time, thought and effort in to assembling one of the most diverse, yet cohesive extreme metal line-ups the genre has ever seen. While all the bands share the common theme of progressive musicianship and technical brutality, they all still clearly have their own distinct sound and vibe that they bring to the mix."

The Black Dahlia Murder frontman Trevor Strnad comments: "We're very excited to be part of this year's Summer Slaughter line up. It is a complete honor for us to be playing alongside so many powerhouses of extreme music. Come out to the shows and show your support!"

Advance tickets are only $20 across the nation. Quotes from all the bands and more information on the tour can be found at the official MySpace page.

Ash Avildsen continued, "I'd like to thank Necrophagist for launching this tour with us last year as well as Prosthetic Records, Metal Blade and Nick Storch for helping make this year come together. I would also like to personally thank Hot Topic for stepping up to the plate and heavily supporting the most extreme tour of the year. They are truly a key player in the modern state of heavy f'ing metal and their involvement in this tour is living proof of that statement!"

I don't mind Black Dahlia Murder, they're pretty good live, but they really shouldn't be headlining over legendary bands like Vader

I agree, that's just ridicolous. This is (the) war!

Somehow it's awkward to read about the "high demand from the underground metal community" being fulfilled by the likes of Black Dahlia Murder and Hot Topic...

Just got back from it FUCKING AWESOME!
