Its already better than last year's metalcore lineup though! I'm not the biggest fan of Cannibal Corpse on CD but they always deliver live, especially if you're in the pit with their maniacal die-hard fans. Crazy times. And BTBAM is one of the best live bands going right now. So depending who opens this is looking like it could be the best year for Summer Slaughter.
