Who’s getting pumped for Mayhem Fest? Since taking over Metal Shop three years back, Mayhem has been one of the main things we look forward to all year long. The sun, the bands, the beers, the interviews and of course, the bangover.
Though one of our favorites, Behemoth, was recently forced to drop from the tour, there are still a crap-ton of awesomely heavy bands to check out all day long.
Personally, I’m most excited to see the shred-tastic badassery of Children of Bodom alongside the true Viking’s themselves, Amon Amarth, who will be opening things up on the mainstage.
If you’re not able to make it out to Mayhem this year (Wednesday June 3rd , 2013 at White River Amiptheater) , don’t beat yourself up too bad, because this summer is chock full of brutal metal for all enthusiasts of loud noises.
Here are a couple to keep in mind.
Saturday July 6th at El Corazon
Friday July 19th at Studio Seven
Six Feet Under
Tuesday July 30th at Comcast Arena in Everett
Black Label Society
