The ninth annual Summer Slaughter kicked off Thursday at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco. Summer Slaughter boasts the most brutal festival lineup of the summer featuring death metal legends Morbid Angel, Goatwhore, Decripit Birth. Unfortunately the opening night was not without its problems, many fans were dissapointed when it was announced that Morbid Angel would not be appearing this evening due to their tour bus breaking down. How does your tour bus breakdown on the night of the first gig? Although this was a bit of bummer there was more than enough brutality on the bill to compensate.

Line-Up: Morbid Angel, Dying Fetus, The Faceless, Thy Art Is Murder, Goatwhore, Origin, Decrepit Birth, Within the Ruins, Fallujah, & more

Clearly delivering one of the best performances of the night was New Orleans’ Goatwhore. Front man Louis Benjamin Falgoust II took the stage like a caged animal, with his matching spiked gauntlets orchestrating a relentless set of death/thrash blackened death metal. Congratulations to Goatwhore who released their sixth studio album “Constricting Rage Of The Merciless” on Metal Blade this week which debuted at #81 on billboard Top 200, their highest charting release to date. Check out their new video “Baring teeth for revolt” below. Goatwhore will be supporting Glen Danzig’s recently reformed Samhain for a hand full of dates in September and October.
