Read my review and peep my photos from the Mansfield, MA stop of the 2014 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival with Avenged Sevenfold, Korn, Asking Alexandria, Body Count and more.
The biggest buzz came from Body Count, the rap-metal crossover group fronted by hip-hop icon Ice-T. Ice-T - these days a household name who is perhaps better known for his acting career than his music - certainly doesn't need to be doing this, but he's there for the love of it. He even brought his son, Ice Morrow, on tour to perform backing vocals. Most of the crowd seemed to go to the set purely out of curiosity, but it didn't take long for them to get roped in by Ice's showmanship.

Maybe this is all none of my concern, but I can't sleep already.

Read my review of the Mansfield, MA stop of the Mayhem Festival here. The tour features Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Mastodon, Machine Head, Children of Bodom, Amon Amarth and more. You can also check out my interview with Rob Zombie guitarist John 5 here.
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.

During my chat with guitarist John 5 at the Mansfield, MA stop of Mayhem Festival, he revealed that Rob Zombie will be recording and releasing their first-ever live DVD later this year. Check back tomorrow for the full interview.
This is big news. I haven't talked about this. 30 years, Rob Zombie, White Zombie - never done a live DVD. We're doing one this year. The show's so big. It can't get much bigger, so I'm like, "We better record this!"

Behemoth have been forced to cancel their appearance on this summer's Mayhem Festival due to drummer Inferno requiring surgery.
Polandís blackened death metal outfit BEHEMOTH have been forced to cancel their upcoming appearance on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival due to their drummer Inferno taking ill and requiring surgery.

The bandís front-man Nergal comments; "This must have been the most difficult decision we were forced to make in recent years. Behemoth is known for not canceling any shows or tours. But this is not something we can do when we are missing our driving force, the man behind the drums - Inferno. Unfortunately, he was hospitalized due to appendix surgery and...
