"The Summer Slaughter Tour" is an annual event that began in 2007, and is now in its tenth year. Initially launched in North America, "Summer Slaughter" has also visited Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Billed as "The Most Extreme Tour of the Year", "Summer Slaughter" has earned a reputation as being one of the few summer tours to cater exclusively to fans of extreme forms of metal music. Starting in 2012, "Summer Slaughter" began to add more progressive metal bands to their lineups, with BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME co-headlining that year with CANNIBAL CORPSE. PERIPHERY also played "Summer Slaughter" 2012, and came back during "Summer Slaughter" 2013, along with progressive metal bands ANIMALS AS LEADERS and THE OCEAN. The focus on progressive metal that year was controversial, and death metal-focused lineups returned in 2014, with MORBID ANGEL in the headlining slot.

CANNIBAL CORPSE's latest album, "A Skeletal Domain", sold 8,800 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 32 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band's previous CD, "Torture", opened with 9,600 units to land at No. 38. This figure was in line with the first-week performance of 2009's "Evisceration Plague", which entered the chart at No. 66. CANNIBAL CORPSE's 2006 CD, "Kill", debuted at No. 170 after shifting more than 6,000 copies.

NILE's latest album, "What Should Not Be Unearthed", was released last August via Nuclear Blast. Produced by NILE and mixed by Neil Kernon, the CD's artwork was handled this time by Michal "Xaay" Loranc.
