A Musical Experience So Grand Your Head Will Explode
The upcoming Mayhem music festival, courtesy of Rockstar Energy Drink, is looking to be nothing short of a metal experience so intense that yes. Your cranial cavity will explode. In fact it won’t just be a simple B-movie bloody splatter. The very atoms in your body will split unleashing a rejuvenating shower of nuclear energy. I hear it’s quite a refreshing experience.
In case you haven’t been keeping an eye out yourself, what’s going to make this experience begin nuclear fission is the lineup. Three stages will be set up to give everyone a constant cycle of metal band after metal band to ensure you won’t be able to hear your doctor tell you you have tinnitus.
Fronting the whole experience as the main attraction will be Rob Zombie alongside Five Finger Death Punch, Mastodon, and Amon Amarth. But they are just the four horsemen of this audible apocalypse.
On the Jagermeister Mobile Stage Machine Head will front the Jager stage and will be joined by Job for a Cowboy, Butcher Babies, Battlecross, and Huntress.
The Musician’s Institute Stage will feature Children of Bodom with Behemoth, Emmure, Born of Osiris, Motionless in White, and Thrown into Exile.
The Sumerian Stage, however is currently still under construction. City in the Sea is currently booked, but any accompanying bands have yet to be announced.
