Seriously, I’m getting so pumped for all these awesome shows being announced. It was just last week that Cannibal Corpse were confirmed as the headliner for this years Summer Slaughter Tour, but before that they’re going on what is sure to be an awesome run in the U.S. with fellow death metal cohorts Exhumed, Abysmal Dawn, and Arkaik. I’m not too familiar with that last band, but CC, Exhumed and Abysmal are fucking intense.
I’ve never seen any of them live, but there appears to be an Oklahoma City date, so I think I may have to check this out. I was bitching just a few weeks ago about not being able to go to any of these shows, but with the announcement of this tour, and upcoming Mastodon/Opeth trek, I’m certainly going to be enjoying myself this April.
