When the 2013 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival rolled through Mansfield, MA on July 16th, it was about 90 degrees out, humid, with no breeze and barely a cloud in the sky. A bright, sunny day doesn't exactly scream "metal" (although I suppose you could equate the heat to the fires of Hell). No matter how you put it, it was oppressively hot - but the climate didn't stop the bands nor the fans from giving their all.
