Slaughter By The Water

Here's a scary thought. 1,226 thrash metal fans met up to catch Autopsy and Nuclear Assault headline a festival of high-octane metal that also featured appearances from Cattle Decapitation, Exmortus, Hatchet, Skinlab, Undivided, Vindicator, Warbringer, Whiplash, Witchaven and Zombie Holocaust. Needless to say, a lot of pitting and stage diving went down at Craneway Pavilion in Richmond, CA on Saturday June 25th for the second annual Slaughter by The Water. Pictures from the festival adorn this post.

For headliner Autopsy, the show was one of only two US dates scheduled for this year, with the second going down a few weeks prior at Chaos in Tejas. Nuclear Assault also recently played a festival date as well at Maryland Deathfest, which Witchaven played as part of their tour with Nocturnal that hit NYC.

Slaughter By The Water III is already in the works. More pictures from Slaughter By The Water II below...

"Fucking everything in California is way more cool than New York."

Spoken like a true Williamsburg transplant from California. What else is new?
