    Slayer, Lamb of God, and Behemoth — three of the biggest acts in metal — have announced they are hitting the road. For six weeks the metal giants will join together to slay audiences across North America.

    All of the concerts will feature Slayer and Lamb of God, while Behemoth will join the other two for every show except two Wisconsin dates on July 19th and 15th. The tour will begin July 12th in Bemidji, Minnesota then continue across the continent make stops in Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, Denver, Los Angeles and many others. The tour will come to an end on August 20th in Phoenix, Arizona.

    Slayer's last released Repentless in 2015. Lamb of God's most recent record also came out in 2015, VII: Sturm und Drang. Behemoth's latest LP, The Satanist, was released the year before.

    Seems like a good summer for fans of metal to get our their black t-shirts, scuff up their All-Stars, dust off their denim and catch one, or three, of their favorite bands in a string of shows that you know will be amongst some of the loudest this year.
