It’s almost time for a yearly tradition for extreme metal fans – the Summer Slaughter tour rumors are heating up! And by heating up, we mean The Summer Slaughter Tour’s Facebook page has already teased their 2020 lineup rollout. Last year’s lineup featured Brand Of Sacrifice, Carnifex, and plenty more awesome bands – who will the lineup feature this time around?
Progressive metalcore – and metalcore in general – might well be considered a crowded genre of music. There’s plenty of talent to go around, however. Filled with a dizzying array of guitar riffs and impressive drum fills, Alabama progressive metalcore band Blueshift are likely to draw immediate comparisons to their fellow statesmen in Erra. That’s not a bad thing, of course, considering how catchy and ear-pleasing some of the bands in the genre can be. In Blueshift’s case, the band’s strong melodic foundation serves their new single, “Cloak And Dagger”, extremely well.
