Slayer To Headline Rockstar Mayhem Fest

The Rockstar Mayhem festival enters its eighth year with another heavy metal and hard rock line-up, featuring 13 bands performing between the main stage and Victory Records stage.

The main stage will feature Slayer as headliner, as well as additional performances from King Diamond, Hellyeah, and The Devil Wears Prada. The Victory Records Stage will feature headliner Whitechapel as well as Thy Art Is Murder, Jungle Rot, Sister Sin, Sworn In, Shattered Sun, Feed Her To The Sharks, Code Orange and Kissing Candice.

Slayer's Kerry King comments: "I don't know if third time will be a charm, but it will definitely be hellish! Slayer and King Diamond on stage for the first time together in the States- NEVER has Mayhem been more evil. DON'T FUCKIN' MISS IT."

King Diamond adds: "This is going to be one hot and hellish summer! Slayer and King Diamond on the same stage - it does not get more devilish than this! We will be putting on a one hour set with the full King Diamond stage production. As for a set list, I'm not gonna reveal that here, but it will be built around 'Dreams of Horror.' The Puppet Master will be there with Grandma, and we will even go as far back in time as to 1777 (hint). You're all in for one hell of a show if you come to this Sabbath!" More...

The 70,000 Ton Hangover

Can 21st-century metalheads ever be truly happy if they’re not bitching about something on the web?

The pointless arguments over bands’ music, which mostly boil down to matters of taste, are exhausting enough. And there’s a simple solution to dissatisfaction with a particular tour package: stay home and masturbate.

But complaining about festival lineups? Really?

I have some news for you, sport: the only Perfect Metal Festival Lineup, which exists only in an individual’s imagination, attracts an audience of one. Your Perfect Lineup is different from mine.

There needs to be a common denominator, a compromise. I don’t know about you, but when I’m not basking in my serene, elite metal knowledge via trve and righteous, smarmy and self-congratulatory screeds on Facebook, I actually enjoy watching a live show in the company of others. And in reaching the compromise to make that social event possible, everyone’s Perfect Lineup inevitably becomes less than perfect. Such is the transition from fantasy to reality.

In the process, like small children finally realizing that vegetables aren’t going to kill them, we learn that the reality is almost always better than the fantasy (discounting the fact that the latter doesn’t exist). MTV’s Butt-Head once mused on this very issue: “If nothing sucked, and everything was, like, cool all the time… how would you KNOW it was cool?”

At a several-day festival with dozens of bands on multiple stages, we NEED at least a handful of acts we know we can ignore. Otherwise, think of the immense pressure to be constantly on our feet, rushing back and forth, watching every equally important band with rapt attention. Even if possible, it would be simply overwhelming. We’d pass out from exhaustion and forget to enjoy ourselves. Plus, the truly special acts wouldn’t seem as special.

Last summer at Tuska Open Air in Helsinki, rather than bitch about the injustice of Bring Me The Horizon directly preceding Anthrax, I was grateful for the chance to relax and have a beer before catching a show by one of the Big Four. More...

Jungle Rot Celebrating 20th Anniversary

U.S. death metal band Jungle Rot has issued the following announcement about celebrating two decades of existence:

"20 years as a band... Through hard times and good, through line up changes and shit talking, through bad reviews and good reviews, never once has this band stopped, quit, retired, gave up, turned their back on death metal, faked it, changed for trends, quit because it wasn't lucrative, or break up and reform years later demanding respect like we never left.

"We NEVER left. Despite adversities like personnel changes, the core of this band today has been together over 10 years now. It's a brotherhood, not a job.

"We are completely grateful for everything we've been allowed to accomplish. None of that would be possible without the extensive support from you, our friends and fans that keep us going! Eight full length albums with a ninth on the way in a few months is a pretty good run in 20 years, and we have no plans on slowing down! Cheers to everyone!!"

Jungle Rot's latest studio full-length album was the 2013 released "Terror Regime" (reviewed here). More...
