Bassist Jeff Holcomb has pieced together a fantastic ‘on the road’ documentary of his time on the 2012 Summer Slaughter tour as he filled in on bass for Periphery. It’s an insightful look into what it means to be on one of the nation’s heaviest touring metal festivals. Enjoy.
During the months of July and August of 2012, the Summer Slaughter Tour spanned North American continent, hitting 31 cities in five weeks, including two festivals in Canada. It was headlined by the legendary Cannibal Corpse and supported by heavy hitters in the progressive and death metal scenes. I was asked to fill-in on bass for the metal band Periphery, and brought my camera along for the ride. This film documents my experience sharing a bus with Periphery, The Faceless, and Veil of Maya.
