Arch Enemy returns to Baltimore when Summer Slaughter comes to town and this will be the first time they play our area with Jeff Loomis playing guitar opposite Mike Amott! Born Of Osiris is a deathcore band from the Chicago area and they’ve just released a new song from their upcoming album, maybe they’ll play more from it live as well. Veil Of Maya is also a deathcore band from Chicago, though their sound has a Periphery-esque djent sound as well. The Acacia Strain from Massachusetts will be bringing their brand of metalcore to the stage on this tour as well. California based vegetarian death metal band Cattle Decapitation has a new album coming out and they’ll surely be playing some of that brutal new material for you at this show. And definitely get there early enough to see Beyond Creation from Montreal. The tech death band has one of the most incredible bass players in metal right now! So check out these videos by each band on the Summer Slaughter tour below and leave a comment telling me which band you most want to see when the tour comes to Baltimore next week!

Born Of Osiris – Throw Me In The Jungle
