Pretty much the only reason for going to the mayhem festival this year was to see In Flames when I heard they cancelled I was thinking of not going but megadeth was playing and I've never seen them live so is give them a shot honestly not that impressed just like metallica these days. But prayers to the family member of IF's. Trivium was pretty good never really liked thembut there badass live! The last band umm the atharchist I think that's how u spell it they sucked a$$ for a 2 piece metal band but a good cover of slayers raining blood! Machine head was alright I hate is when ur at a metal show and the band stand still trying to get a reaction from the audience jump around for god sakes to get the crown going!!! Godsmack has always sucked for the most part but the drummer is freakin sick. Unearthed was awesome live. And left before disturbed played but i heard they covered 1 or 2 In Flames songs if I'm wrong please correct me bc I would have stayed for humor of watching disturbed "trying" to cover In Flames. Lol but all in all not worth the 35 bucks for this experience.
