By the time the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival limped its way into Northern Virginia there wasn’t anything terribly festive about it. Indeed it felt more like epic fail than anything else, especially when one looked around the grounds of the unfortunately named Jiffy Lube Live and saw not only an empty lawn, but an empty third tier of “shed” seats, a mostly empty second tier and a front section that was maybe two-thirds full.

I felt bad for the main acts, Slayer and King Diamond, both of whom killed it. They certainly would have been better served by playing full theaters instead of desolate amphitheaters on this tour, especially given the rag-tag support cast that made up much of the rest of the bill.

The world’s biggest heavy music touring festival, the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival enters its eighth year with another fantastic heavy metal and hard rock lineup, featuring 13 bands performing on the Rockstar Energy Drink Main Stage and the Victory Records Stage.

The Rockstar Energy Drink Main Stage will feature some of the most ground-breaking heavy bands of all time, spanning the originating years of heavy metal to today! The main stage will feature five-time-nominated, two-time Grammy winning legends Slayer as headliner, as well as additional performances from King Diamond, Hellyeah, and The Devil Wears Prada. The Victory Records Stage will feature headliner Whitechapel as well as Thy Art Is Murder, Jungle Rot, Sister Sin, Sworn In, Shattered Sun, Feed Her To The Sharks, Code Orange and Kissing Candice.

Kerry King, guitarist of Rockstar Energy Drink Main Stage headliners Slayer states, “I don’t know if third time will be a charm, but it will definitely be hellish! Slayer and King Diamond on stage for the first time together in the States – NEVER has Mayhem been more evil. DON’T FUCKIN’ MISS IT.”

Rockstar Energy Drink Main Stage performer and heavy metal hellion King Diamond states, “This is going to be one hot and hellish summer! Slayer and King Diamond on the same stage – it does not get more devilish than this! We will be putting on a one hour set with the full King Diamond stage production. As for a set list, I’m not gonna reveal that here, but it will be built around “Dreams of Horror”. The Puppet Master will be there with Grandma, and we will even go as far back in time as to 1777 (hint). You’re all in for one hell of a show if you come to this Sabbath!”

“It has been eight years and it feels like it started just yesterday. We are so excited about this year’s lineup and having the mighty Slayer back in support of a new album. In addition, the first time for King Diamond and Hellyeah will be awesome, as well as The Devil Wears Prada’s first time on the Main Stage. The Victory Stage has amazing bands and will play throughout the day. Heavy music is thriving in America and we are excited to be a part of it,” state John Reese and Kevin Lyman, Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival producers.

Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival 2013

The San Manuel Amphitheatre is situated in a classic California desert-mountain valley. It was in this harsh, desolate, and port-a-potty-covered wasteland that the first day of Mayhem Festival 2013 took place. There was literally nothing else around the festival; just tall, brown, shrub-covered mountains and lots and lots of dust. The day itself was so hellishly hot – peaking at a scorching 107 F – it was almost as if Satan himself had a hand with the weather (maybe he was even at the festival; he’s kind of into the metal scene, isn’t he?). I’m sure the Mayhem people made a fortune on the ice cold $3 waters and $6 lemonades they were peddling all day long, and I witnessed at least one girl pass out from the heat. But with a name like Mayhem, what else would you expect?
