Jesus Christ you have my sympathy. :eyes:

Every chance I've had to see them ended up falling through (the same shit is happening with Obscura too :mad:), so i'm hoping this will be my chance to finally catch them.

Okay, giving Godsmack a chance but leaving before Disturbed, no questions about it.

Easily the best Mayhem advice. Godsmack is atleast entertaining. Beating the traffic is wise.

Just looked at the Godmsack and Disturbed setlists from last night. I don't know all of the recent Godsmack setlists but it looked pretty standard. And Disturbed played the same set as the US portion of the Music As A Weapon V tour with the addition of "The Infection". So no huge surprises on the Mayhem sets, hopefully when Megadeth joins the tour they'll mix it up a bit.

Fuck yes; Ascendancy is still one of my favorite melodic metalcore records of all time.

And as for the "should I see Godsmack" debate:

I saw Godsmack headline Rock on the Range last year (I went primarily for Mastodon, who were godly :bowdown:), and I can confirm that they were good live. Would I want to see them again? Probably not. But I forgot how many old tunes of theirs I enjoyed back before my metal days. They also had this epic drum battle where everybody in the band picked up different tribal drums and drumsets, which was really cool to see. They're great musicians, even if their music doesn't always reflect it.

the drumb battle is kinda cool but the 8 min version of whatever gets old.

Are you fucking crazy? I think it's so cool that a revolutionary thrash metal band is on the Mayhem tour with the nu-metal bands Godsmack and Disturbed. Don't get me wrong, I love music by all three bands of the bands personally. But I think Megadeth could pick up a lot of new fans this way. If Dave is reading this which is very doubtful, PLEASE STAY!

No not at all. Megadeth is big enough as it is. Honestly if it takes Disturbed, Godsmack, and Suicide Silence fans, THIS LONG to get into Megadeth, they don't deserve to hear Megadeth.

Dave, if you read this, which you won't because 20 bucks says you don't know this forum exists, Do what you think is right, it's your band.

When you said if it takes you "THIS LONG" to get in to Megadeth that you shouldn't be a fan, age can sometimes be a factor of how long it takes you to get into a band.

Ok I'll give you that, when you look at it that way. But they way I'm looking at it is the deathcore Hot Topic kids, and the late 30s Nu Metal fans. If you don't know Megadeth by now...wow. And most Hot Topic kids I know don't like Megadeth because the music is too comples...I think that should say it all.

More respect? Are you fucking kidding me? If they refused the tour from the beginning then maybe that'd be respectful, but to walk off a tour when there's people who have already fucking paid money for tickets to see them is retarded. I mean, i'm sure the reason he's considering walking has nothing to do with the bands on the bill. It probably has to do with how the Mayhem crew is treating Megadeth or sound/technical problems, or maybe even something like not getting all the stuff on his rider.

The point is the guy is such a fucking drama queen, and really needs to suck it up. All the other guys seem to guys in 'Deth seem to be in good spirits about the tour, there's no reason why he shouldn't be.

And even if SS were dicks, it's called avoidance. I'm sure it's rather easy to avoid a band that you're touring with, especially when it's on a big tour like this where you're playing on a different stage than they are at completely different times of the day.

There is no way the folks behind Mayhem are paying anywhere near that(nor should they)

Really this is a scenario where no one's really hurting, SOAD fills up big arenas on their own and Mayhem has continued to be successful

Roadrunner Records will have a few bands while eOne, Century Media, Metal Blade will all have at least one band each on the tour.

For 2012 an early guess would be:
Roadrunner: Slipknot, Devildriver
eOne: Down or BLS
Metal Blade: AILD
Century Media: Arch Enemy

Wouldn't be suprised to see Lamb of God, Mastodon, 5FDP, Killswitch Engage, All That Remains or Dragonforce return.

Main:
Slipknot
Lamb of God
Mastodon
All That Remains

Jager:
Down or BLS
Devildriver
Arch Enemy

Revolver:
Dragonforce

That guess will probably be so far off from the real line up that its not funny. Sad thing is the tour organizers probably already have the headliners signed by now.

Agreed.

The speculation as to who will play Mayhem always starts early but this is just rediculous. Let this years tour end first.

There's no way to know for sure who will even have new material out next year, let alone who will be on this tour in 2012.

They weren't coheadlining Ozzfest 2007 though, they were just the last of the support bands. And that tour was free to attend, so it's not like they needed someone who could draw besides Ozzy.

Slipknot coheadlined with Disturbed in 2008, why would Slipknot be sole headliner next year....? Any band that could headline without a coheadliner, will cost too much for this particular tour. The tour promoters tried to get SOAD this year, but they wanted too much money.

Technically, LoG were the coheadliner that year. They played just as long as Ozzy did, probably longer. And Lamb of God is definitely popular enough to headline Mayhem. Nowadays I think they're up there with Disturbed, Slipknot, Korn, all the "popular" headliner "metal" bands.

I thought the Mayhem video posted today of Mustaine running from the girl who won the guitar then booting her off stage was bad. Then I see his idiotic face on tv talking about how he put a witchcraft spell on a hot chick in high school to fuck her.

He is officially the biggest doucheclown in metal and deserving of the name Nutstaine.

Technically, LoG were the coheadliner that year. They played just as long as Ozzy did, probably longer. And Lamb of God is definitely popular enough to headline Mayhem. Nowadays I think they're up there with Disturbed, Slipknot, Korn, all the "popular" headliner "metal" bands.

No, they were not the coheadliner. Playing the same length set does not mean they were the coheadliner. In order to be a coheadliner, you have to share the headlining responsibilities. Sharon contacted Lamb of God to play on their tour, not to help out with the tour.

Lamb of God is no where near capable of headling gayhemfest. They do club tours with support from Bodom as well as AILD on the same tour, both of whom do their own club tours. If a band was capable of headlining an outdoor festival, they would have two club headliners opening for them in an arena tour. Slipknot, for example, took Coheed and Trivium with them on an arena tour. SLAYER sells out clubs with minimal support, for more money than Lamb of God.

Lamb of God even played gayhem last year. And they definitely did not get either of the headline slots. All the bands that have had a top spot get a very good amount of radio play on rock radio stations. SLAYER and Marilyn Manson have limited play, and that was the worst turnout of every gayhem thus far.

What are you smokin?

LOG is nowhere near popular enough to sell Mayhem, which plays 20,000 capacity amphitheaters. Disturbed, Slipknot and Korn get played on the radio all the time and all have platinum and multi-platinum albums. LOG is just simply nowhere near that in popularity.

LOG has a decent sized following and their albums do respectable in sales. I think their most recent ones have sold in the 250,000 - 350,000 range. Which is very good but it's not enough to fill up amphitheaters on a full summer tour as one of the headline acts. Unless Mayhem decides to scale the tour back and play places that hold four or five thousand each, they have no chance in hell of headlining or co-headlining this tour.

Well, Ok then. I probably don't know because I dont pay attention to the shitty mainstream bands to begin with. All I know is that around these parts (Pittsburgh), Lamb of God headlines the same venues that Slayer, Ted Nugent, ZZ Top, BLS, ect. headline.

But I still fully believe that if they were to co-headline Mayhem they would still sell the same amount of tickets.

That's because all those bands are about at the same level of popularity right now. Not because LOG has reached the same heights of fame that Slayer, Nugent and ZZ Top once had.

Their popularity is probably just a bit below where Slayer was at their peak 20years ago. I think LOG is probably more popular than BLS right now, at least in the US.

Just because someone buys an album doesn't mean they go to shows. I personally think if this years lineup was Lamb of God / Machine Head & Hatebreed headlining with the rest of the lineup similar or with a Morbid Angel/Behemoth type thrown in it would sell virtually the same amount of tickets.

People go for the festival and the experience almost as much as the bands. Godsmack, Megadave and Disturbed have all toured around here in the last year and several times in the last few years. People who like them have probably already seen them recently so I think people give those bands way too much credit for selling tickets.

Diamonos is right about our area also. Lamb of God sold out Rams Head twice while BLS barely had half of the place filled and after Sevendust played even more people left.

Lamb Of God is huge in MA as well. They sold out two shows in Massachusetts on the No Fear Tour a couple of years ago (one at The Palladium and one at the House Of Blues). Last year at Mayhem, no one watched 3 Inches Of Blood because Lamb Of God was playing at the same time. Quite a few people actually left after Lamb Of God played. I think they could absolutley co-headline Mayhem, they have a big enough fanbase.

yes, but Lamb of God aren't exactly a washed up early 2000's nu-metal band, and most of the headliners have been just that....

I've been all 4 Mayhem Fests and this years had less people than any other year.

As for LoG they have headlined No Fear, SOTU and been main support/coheadliner for Ozzfest, Metallica, Unholy Alliance, Gigantour, etc.

LoG, while not quiet mainstream, has a large enough underground fan base to coheadline ANY metal festival as long as there is at least one mainstream metal act (SOAD, Slipknot, Metallica, Ozzy, Maiden, Tool, etc) to anchor the tour.

Other coheadlining acts (Zombie, Godsmack Disturbed, Manson) are more popular touring acts than LoG but it would make more sense to have a band like LoG or KsE or Mastodon - up & coming metal acts with a strong fan base to play before a mainstream act like SOAD or Slipknot. It would be a better fit than say Godsmack/Disturbed who draw off the same exact fan base. Most fans who like one band like the other 75% of the time. Where as most Slipknot or SOAD fans are not LoG fans in general. Nor are they from the same fan base. Even though its all considered metal there are so many different genres within metal that Slipknot, Judas Priest, Lamb of God and Tool all sell lots of tickets but have their own distinctive general fan base within fans of metal.

Like them or not, LoG are a force to be reckoned with due to their growing fan base which makes them the largest underground band in metal at this time. They can coheadline any mainstream metal festival in the US.

this pretty much


honestly last year before it was announced I was expecting it to be coheadlined by Avenged Sevenfold/Lamb of God


that being said the show sold really well here this year, but last year seems to have been the most successful(with 2008 close behind)


mainstream bands keep this thing afloat, I was at the first "Hell on Earth" show last night and the crowd wasnt particularly big

From what I've heard of ticket sales for the four years, 2009 was the lowest selling.

No Fear Tour was a club tour. Sounds of the Undeground was an arena festival tour, so there were less tickets to sell, and the tour still failed miserably and disappeared. Doesn't speak well for Lamb of God's headlining ability. They were main support for Ozzfest, but that tour was free, so selling tickets wasn't a concern. Metallica can sell out arenas without any openers at all, so supporting them doesn't have any bearing on their draw. Unholy Alliance and Gigantour are headlined by bands that can sell out clubs with minimal support, but in arenas with decent support instead.

Any band that is big enough to anchor a tour on their own (any you listed, besides Slipknot), would be too expensive for gayhem. And even if they did do the tour, they are way beyond Lamb of God's level, and it would not be a coheadlining tour, it would be headlined by that one band.

It is actually smarter to have two hard rock bands coheadline, the way gayhem has been doing. That way, there isn't just one band that the mainstream audience (bulk of ticket sales) wants to see. Not a whole lot of people will spend that kind of money to go to an all day concert out in the heat, just to see one band they really like. The lineup is already geared towards the underground "up and coming" metal bands. There are two hard rock bands, and the rest are metal bands.

For me personally I look at it like this. I have backstage passes for the side stages and every year I've bought a ticket to see the main bands. This year I got lucky and Machine Head is headlining the extreme stage at our date so I have ZERO interest in buying a ticket for the main stage bands.

If Machine Head were headlining the main stage I'd pay $100 for a ticket...

You don't like the tour that is fine but you can drop the childish comments such as "gayhem" and actually make yourself not look like a fool debating why you don't like the tour.

But it's primarily douchebags with huge holes in their ears, tight pants, and shitty taste in music. So I'm not going to dignify the tour. The only bands worth anything on the entire tour are Machine Head, Red Fang, and Megadeth. Definitely not enough to overpower the false metal though.

The band does not suck. You're obviously just ripping on them because you have some other axe to grind - or, at the very least, you don't like their music - but just because you don't like them doesn't mean they're a shitty band.

No matter how much I may dislike a band or think a certain tour sucks I doubt mine or anyone elses opinion will sway the masses & fans from supporting the cause.

Yet you just spent time out of your day saying why you think I shouldn't be posting in this thread :tongue:

You presented your opinion of Mayhem, and in return I then presented my opinion of this festival. But you didn't like my opinion, so you started trolling. You can go back and look for yourself.

You obviously haven't listened to Unearth that much. No problem. I happen to think they're pretty damn good for metalcore, which is not one of my favorite subgenres. To each his own.

I actually have listened to them quite a bit. I even own one of their albums. I just do not enjoy them. They aren't horrible like most metalcore, but they are definitely not good. Oh and, I've seen them live too, so don't bother with the "you gotta see 'em live" argument;)

Ape
07-22-2011, 12:38 PM
Would that be considered trolling? Hmm. I'm not sure about that. But then again I should probably accept it when a person that spends most of their time trolling online calls me a troll.

I believe my focus on this whole thing was that different people like different things just because you believe something is "false metal" doesn't make it the truth.

Here let me play nice for a minute to switch things up.

Why is it that you liked 08, loved 09 and now shit on everything the tour does? Do you want ozzfest back? Is that why mayhem has hurt your feelings over the years because I do believe most of the bands that play this festival played ozzfest as well.

As far as unearth goes I used to really enjoy their CDs then just stopped buying them but still really enjoyed them live. Now I have seen them so many times I'm starting to grow bored with them. After remembering how fun they were at ozzfest years back I look forward to seeing them in a festival setting again though.

07-22-2011, 12:46 PM
You shat on Mayhem, then I shat on this tour. Instead of letting me have my opinion, you had to go and rant about how what I think of this tour is wrong and that I shouldn't think it.

I enjoyed '08 and '09 because I was a teenager, and did not have an advanced taste in music yet. Pretty simple really.

Yes, i'm going.

I didn't plan on it at first since Megadeth wasn't on it but now I am. I still don't understand why the venue didn't get Mayhem fest instead? It's just strange they only booked half the bands on the tour for this particular show and Megadeth wasn't one of them to begin with:confused:

So, with Megadeth being added, does the start time change? All I really care about is them, Machine Head and Disturbed anyways.

Well the edge kept saying special guest surprise so they knew Megadeth was going to perform. As for not getting the whole Mayhem DL did not like when Slipknot and Disturbed palyed the first Mayhem so they woild not give permission for any others to play DL. As for set times this is what I found on MF website
Disturbed
10-10:55
Godsmack
8:40-9:35
Machine Head
7:00-7:30
In Flames
6:30-7:00
Trivium
6:00-6:30
This will change but you can see the time slot between MH and Godsmack is were Megadeth will play

Still, they should change the start time to a bit earlier. To jam up six bands onto one stage in the span of five hours just isn't gonna work. Unless they're having a side stage for the first few bands.

I know should get rid of Trivium let In Flames start it would work better. One of the first three bands is going to have a very short set or all three will

Since this thread has (almost) become The Official 'Herp Derp Dave Mustaine' Thread, here's another one for you all.

In going along with our metalheads/religion theme today, Dave Mustaine was interviewed on ABC's Nightline last night and it was a doozy. The segment starts talking about some idiotic death metal band who raped and killed a girl and masked it as a satanic sacrifice. This was transitioned into an interview with Mustaine. He first talks about how he assumes the devil looks, then talks about his teen years of occultism, and how he cast two hexes in high school. HE KNOWS THAT IT WORKS! That's all we need to know. It's a pretty great video, worth watching for fans of Mustaine's idiosyncrasies.

The interview is available here: http://www.metalinjection.net/av/dave-mustaine-thinks-devil-angel

Watch out false-tellers. Dave Mustaine is armed with the truth!

I seriously, seriously doubt that they'd be doing anything so soon after Ryan Dunn's death. They probably will never do anything again, especially after the ending of Jackass 3.
