This summer saw what was arguably the strongest edition of the Summer Slaughter Tour yet, with a killer lineup including Cerebral Bore, Exhumed, Goatwhore, Veil of Maya, Job For A Cowboy, The Faceless, Periphery, Between the Buried and Me, and Cannibal Corpse. I’m still irritated that I couldn’t make it out for the show, but I hydroplaned my vehicle and lost my only ride. I didn’t tell you guys about that, did I? That seems like an important thing to share in hindsight. Oh, well.
On the tour, Periphery took along guitarist Mark Holcomb’s brother Jeff Holcomb as a fill-in bassist, and during the trek, he filmed throughout the tour and put together a documentary of sorts of the tour. Unfortunately there isn’t any sort of narrative or plot to the story, which is something I was hoping to see. It’s more of an hour-long tour diary sort of thing than what one would think of as a “documentary,” but it’s still really cool nonetheless.
