On The Road… with Slipknot and Lamb of God


slipknot summers last stand

The Summer’s Last Stand Tour” has been going from town to town across the country playing to amphitheaters and to big crowds. In many ways this explosive tour matching up Slipknot with Lamb of God essentially helped to kill off Mayhem Fest, at least in part. Not only are they two of the most potent live bands in American metal, each brings their own fans and unique vibe to the proceedings. Slipknot of course are the modern-day Kiss and Motley Crüe, dealing in pure sensory overload. Only the likes of Rob Zombie, Rammstein and Tool come close to the visual orgy that The Knot can bring. They have been killing it live all over the world since last year’s release of .5: The Gray Chapter (Roadrunner). Audiences in America are naturally hungry for a Lamb of God show, eager to finally hear new songs off of the just released VII: Sturm Und Drang (Epic) album. If that wasn’t enough, this tour also has Bullet For My Valentine and Motionless In White (not pictured) to round out a bill that is truly diverse and heavy enough for everyone. Shot here for Ghost Cult by Evil Robb Photography, you can feel a sense of the epic scale of the première concert tour of 2015 so far.
