North America The Slaughter Survivors Tour 2012

Fan-voted openers[edit]

In 2011 The Summer Slaughter Tour offered their fans the opportunity to vote on who would open the tour. Fans were given ten bands to choose from and vote on. The choices for 2011 were Dawn Of Ashes, Revocation, Neuraxis, Conducting From The Grave, The Contortionist, Within The Ruins, Volumes, Augury, 7 Horns 7 Eyes, Rings of Saturn, and Struc/tures. Within The Ruins ultimately received the most votes and thus the opening spot for the tour. That same year Conducting From The Grave, The Contortionist, Rings Of Saturn, Volumes, and Struc/tures all toured together on what was billed as The Slaughter Survivors Tour. This tour also included Scale The Summit who had not been part of the voting.

For the 2012 edition of The Summer Slaughter Tour fans were once again given the chance to vote on the opening act. Again ten bands were chosen for the fans to vote on. The choices for 2012 were Aegaeon, Battlecross, Cerebral Bore, Enfold Darkness, Fallujah, Fit For An Autopsy, Hour of Penance, I Declare War, Pathology, and Vildhjarta. The opening slot for the 2012 tour went to Cerebral Bore while Pathology, Enfold Darkness, Fallujah, Fit For An Autopsy, and Aegaeon joined each other on the 2012 Slaughter Survivors Tour.

2013 Choices: Abiotic, As They Burn, Dark Sermon, Erra, Fit For An Autopsy, Howl, Intervals, Into The Flood, King Conquer, Last Chance To Reason, My Bitter End, Nekrogoblikon, Rings Of Saturn, Syqem, Soreption, Today I Caught The Plague, and Thy Art Is Murder. Vektor was initially on the list until they were taken off at the request of the band.
