Time to throw up the horns one more time, the Rockstar Mayhem Fest will be in Camden on August 7th.
Since Ozzfest jumped the shark, the Mayhem Fest has been the go-to metal festival for headbangers on a budget. This year, the fest will be co-headlined by pioneering thrash metal band Slayer and the gothfather of shock rock, Marilyn Manson.
Rounding out the lineup is Killswitch Engage, Bullet For My Valentine, Cannibal Corpse, Trivium, God Forbid, Job For A Cowboy, All That Remains and Behemoth among many other smaller bands.
Both Slayer and Manson have new music. Manson’s newest album (and first with returning bassist Twiggy Ramirez post-Nine Inch Nails) The High End Of Low was released late last month to generally favorable reviews. Slayer recently announced the title to their newest disc, World Painted Blood, which will be released late in the summer.
