Mayhem Festival meets Revolver meets 1/2 douchebagJuly 15th, 2010 by Price
There was once upon a time when I would’ve given everything my 15 or 16 year-old self had for the chance to shake hands with Jonathon Davis. Those times are LONG gone (as is my tolerance for their “music” or whatever it is they’ve released in the past few years). However, this hasn’t stopped Vincent and I from buying tickets to our second straight annual Rockstar Mayhem Festival.
I think the overall lineup is not that bad. Lamb of God is one of our favorite bands, 3 Inches of Blood does some nice epic metal, and Norma Jean/Chimaira always put on good live shows.
I also don’t like Five Finger Death Punch, mainly because their singer looks too much like Fred Durst mixed with Shifty Shellshock.
Regardless, there are some commemorative covers of Revolver magazine for this festival. It’s the kind of metal/horror crossover thing that should ideally make us jump for joy, and it probably will once we’re liquored up and buying shitty merch, but I’m just not there yet.
The show is a week from Friday. Stay tuned.
