At the NAMM convention being held in California this weekend Machine Head frontman Rob Flynn apparently told a fan that his band will be on the mainstage of the 2011 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. There have been rumors of the band playing the festival and with this new information we can verify they will be playing. The Mayhem Festival line up is shaping up like this:


Main Stage:
Godsmack
Disturbed
Megadeth
Machine Head

Jager/Silver Star Stages:
In Flames
Kingdom of Sorrow
Suicide Silence
Unearth

Yeah this is mostly speculation. I think you're a pretty reliable source (you just called the Korn/Disturbed tour a week ahead of time, not to mention some tours last summer), and you word everything correctly so that it doesn't sound like you're making up rumors though.
I think Wolverine makes up for a couple people on this board. I'm not saying any names, I'm just saying Disturbed's latest album and a certain South American band/sex position.
By the way, why won't LOG be on this tour? Headlining summer tour or in another package/festival?

11-21-2010, 05:29 PM
SYSTEM OF A DOWN
TOOL
METALLICA
AVENGED SEVENFOLD
DISTURBED
MEGADETH
ALL THAT REMAINS
TRIVIUM
DEVILDRIVER
DOWN
CHILDREN OF BODOM
DIMMU BORGIR

I would go for all these bands if the line up is true.

I hope this lineup is true, that means we get one of the rare festival where most of the bands are good or tolerable.

Okay okay, out of the bands, this is who I'd want to see:

SOAD
Megadeth
Rammstein

As I Lay Dying
Down
GWAR

And every one of the side stage bands except that faggot from KSE's band

People have been talking about that for the last month or so. I'm not trying to take anything away from WOLVERINEKILLS, but information on that wasn't too hard to find. He wasn't the first one to call that.

I knew Disturbed was doing MAAW with Sevendust. I knew Korn was going to tour but kudos to BBM for figuring out Korn was on MAAW.

I am certainly not the be all end all of heavy music news but I do try to share with my friends on this site.

As for Mayhem, I think it will look like this:

SOAD or Disturbed
Godsmack
Deftones
All That Remains
As I Lay Dying or Gwar
Trivium
Arch Enemy
Skeletonwitch

That sounds about right but if SOAD doesn't pan out for this tour I don't think the top 3 would be Deftones/Godsmack/Disturbed.

Why do I even care, I probably won't go to this tour regardless unless they get a bunch of good bands or SOAD ends up playing.

If the lineup is correct this better come to Buffalo. There is no reason why this souldn't come to Buffalo definetly with System Of a Down playing.

WOLVERINEKILLS
11-21-2010, 07:29 PM
I'm not saying that line up is correct. I know alot of those bands want that tour and as of a few weeks ago some were waiting to get confirmed for it. That was my guess based on info I was told or stuff rhe bands (Trivium/Arch Enemy) have said.

I did hear that they will release the tour dates/cities THIS WEEK with the line up to be announced in January.

MPF
11-21-2010, 07:33 PM
I would care about this tour, but it won't be coming anywhere near here. We used to have a great outdoor venue but the town put a ban on Rock/Metal festivals and now it is home to Country Splash every year.

The only thing that interests me about this tour is seeing what bands won't be coming here.

BloodoftheKings
11-21-2010, 07:54 PM
Gayhem has never had more then 3 good bands so these predicted lineups are unrealistic. Everyone seems to be positive that the headliner will be either SOAD or Rammstien. I wouldn't count on either of those happening.

MAIN STAGE:


DISTURBED: Rumor has it they canceled their last tour due to poor ticket sales.


I didn't hear anything about this at all. I know they cancelled a couple shows because Draiman had some throat infection of some kind but that's it. I'd be surprised if they did cancel because of poor ticket sales. They're still popular and are all over the radio. Plus, when I saw Uproar this summer there was a huge crowd for it. If it was able to draw good numbers in the Buffalo area than it probably drew well every other place to.

I don't think they would do another festival next summer though. They'll focus on their own tour in the new year.

Jochen
11-21-2010, 08:38 PM
I wouldn't see this. Unless Megadeth was on it. It's still better than this year's though.

I heard the same thing about the throat illness. After his previous throat problems they were taking this extremely cautiously.

MAIN STAGE:

SYSTEM OF A DOWN: i could totally see this happening. i'm not the biggest SOAD fan there is but i'd be stoked if they were headlining. i have a lot of friends who like them so if it's true i'd have a looooot of friends to go with.
TOOL, METALLICA: can't see them doing it.
AVENGED SEVENFOLD: would be interesting.
DISTURBED: they played '08 so i'd really prefer if they got someone else.
MEGADETH: i could somewhat see this but i can't see them headlining, maybe 2nd to last yeah
RAMMSTEIN: i could see this happening.
DEFTONES: as much as i love Deftones i'd rather have them not be on the lineup as they wouldn't really fit.

MAIN STAGE OPENERS and JAGER/SILVER STAGE HEADLINERS:

HELLYEAH: don't care.
AS I LAY DYING: would love to see this happen.
ALL THAT REMAINS: i'd be content if they played but they were on the lineup in 09 so i'd rather have someone else.
TRIVIUM: see above.
DEVILDRIVER: would be satisfied.
DOWN: not a fan but i'd be somewhat interested.
GWAR: would be really interesting, have always wanted to see this band live.

SIDE STAGE BANDS:

ARCH ENEMY: would love to see this happen.
SKELETONWITCH: not a fan but they're a lot of fun live so i'd be down with it.
CHILDREN OF BODOM: would love it if it happened.
DIMMU BORGIR: not a fan but might be interesting.
GOATWHORE: meh kinda bored me last time i saw them.

Crionics
11-22-2010, 12:24 PM
I would go for all those side stage bands (minus Times of Grace) ..but I don't care about any of the other bands save Megadeth (who I've already seen twice) and maybe Metallica and Gwar.

Will be interesting to see what the final lineup will be.

imanidiot777
11-22-2010, 12:28 PM
Down is one of my favorite bands, if they were on this I'd pay anything just to see them. I'm pretty sure they'd be a main stage opener simply because of the Phil Anselmo star power.

Unless something unforeseen happens I'll just be sticking to Summer Slaughter.

Would go for Skeletonwitch, Gwar, Goatwhore, Arch Enemy, Rammstein and Megadeth. Would stick around to watch SOAD maybe, and CoB if no one else was playing at their set time. Everyone else is pretty lame. But, it looks like it could shape up to be much better than last year. Still no Mayhem 2009, but not bad.

seriously though I hope this comes to pittsburgh. and really, we all know tool would NEVER do this tour. as amazing as it would be (to me anyways) itll just never happen. samesies for metallica. rammstein would be the shit, but I just dont see it happening
apparently triviums on this year, and I have a strong feeling all that remains will be back. and even though I like godsmack and have heard that their live shows are NUTS, I dunno if I really think theyd fit. but I wouldnt MIND seeing them lol ya know?

If this lineup ends up being true then this will be the best Mayhemfest has had. It's possible system would play, they would definetly draw a good crowd since they are reuniting.
I would definetly go for Tool, All That Remains, Trivium, DevilDriver, Down and Children Of Bodom, and System of a Down if they play.

Trivium

Jager Stage-
All That Remains
Unearth
Arch Enemy
Skeletonwitch
Jager Band

Silver Star Stage-
As I Lay Dying
GWAR
Children of Bodom
Born of Osiris/other rising deathcore band

so would this be a good bet of what the lineup will look like?

Well, that's just immediately what I thought of when I heard the dates where gonna be annouced already. I might have to do that with the Metclub as well.

It's very odd that the dates are annouced this far ahead with no mention of the lineup. It's not hitting anywhere near me so unless it's a real blockbuster lineup I won't be attending again this year.

Dude, It's like I said earlier. Float-Rite Park used to have Metal festivals. Ozzfest and X-Fest. Then Somerset, WI decided that Country is better for the town so now we gotta suffer through Country Jam every fucking year instead.

It's not the fault of the promoters of the organizers, it's Somerset's fault, so fuck them!

Yes there is. It's the same reason why Uproar had the mainstage at The Target Center, and the 2nd stage played a few blocks down. There's not enough room.

And don't say the Metrodome either. That is not meant for concerts. I went to see Metallica there in 2004. I couldn't hear for 2 weeks. but a year later with Godsmack at the Excel. I could hear just fine.

I guess the only way this could work indoors is if the Mainstage was at The Target Center, and the 2nd stage played at First Avenue or something. But those two venue would have to agree to the terms and bullshit like that. Make it look like a huge hassle for the organizer. So much in fact it leads them to say 'Let's try Chicago instead."

Ah, that explains it.

How about this? Instead of giving the Vikings and Twins new stadiums when the Metrodome is perfectly fine, how about a nice outdoor ampitheater?

MPF
11-24-2010, 07:39 PM
That's the thing though....where are you going to build it?

Most cities already have noise violation laws set in stone, and of course you know how absolutely 100 percent no way around it important sports are to society. Adding an outdoor Ampitheater is not worth it to a lot of towns.

Somerset, Wisconsin was the only place really that had the room for one, has the right conditions for noise ordinances, and could draw money. Since Float-Rite Park banned Rock and Metal, there's no place for it. Metal is not a big enough draw here for that to be reasonable. Hell why do you think Minnesota Metalfest was held at Station 4 back in 2008?

I'm not trying to be a dick. I'm just being realistic. Here, we should be thankful for ANYTHING that we get that's remotely good.

*Although I do agree with you, there is nothing wrong with the Metrodome, other then having concerts there.*

I would, but I'm actually not driving to the show. I'm meeting my singer of my band and we're driving together, then after the show we are going over to Station 4. Not to see any bands or anything, our producer live 3 flights above Station 4. and I'm praying to the Metal gods that our album will be done that night.

I was really hoping I could hand Hansi a copy of our album but it will not be done by then.

Thanks man. 3 songs are done and completely mixed. We have another 7 to go. While I do understand why, our prodcuer doesn't want to mix and master without us being there. Also our guitarist is having a big problem with the album. He made a few sour notes on solos and he wants to re-record the whole damn album!

Odds are it won't be done till 2011. Which is well behind my October 15th deadline that I set back in August.

One other thing. starting in 2011 * I pray to the Metal gods it happens* I'll be playing in the Cities a lot more. I can't say what it will be for sure, but If any of the following local bands you recognize then this may spark you're interest:

Nailed Shut
Gracepoint
God Awful
Disturbed *I'll be honest I don't know if it is THE Disturbed or a former local band*

The closest thing we have to demos floating around is our youtube page:

But I will say, don't check out the actual demo's we have on their, at least vocally. This was before what our singer says "stopped being a pussy" vocally. The new videos you check out the better.

That's cool. Nailed Shut is Death Metal, Gracepoint is Progressive Metal, God Awful were Thrash Metal. And well if all goes right, alright I'll just say it.Member of those bands plus myself are starting an all star Thrash Metal band. And we'll be opening for a lot of Swordlord Production shows.

I'm there with you on that one man. I went to Mayhem Fest 2009 in San Bernadino back in july. Awesome, awesome concert. Slayer, Cannibal Corpse and Behemoth all fucking killed it. I just wish there sets where longer then 35-50 minutes :(

Really? I would've guessed that this year's sold the least. 2009 had the best lineup, but to be honest, I think I had more fun at this year's for some reason. But overall I had a great time at all three so far, so hopefully next year has an awesome lineup (SOAD plz!) because I'd love to go again.

i think 2009 had too much extreme metal bands, which is not a problem by me, but that's probably why it didn't sell as well, especially since Slayer can't headline ampitheaters. that's why 2010 side stage bands were a lot diff and more mainstream than 2009's if i were to guess. now if they get side stage bands like Children of Bodom, Arch Enemy, As I Lay Dying; those bands will help sell.

and i agree i liked the lineup a lot more in 2009, but i had more fun this year.

Not by themselves, but they definitely could've headlined Mayhem. Korn have been playing smaller places now so if they can headline Slayer could as well. They did headline American Carnage/Jagermeister Music Tour, which came to arenas (though they only played half the of the full areas, which is around the same size as amphitheaters usually are).

And with the extreme metal bands on '09, it's not like the booked unknown bands. Cannibal are easily the biggest death metal band, Behemoth are fairly popular, and Whitechapel are huge in their own scene as well as JFAC. The latter two without a doubt would attract more kids than anything.

that is very true all those bands are huge. but what i'm getting at is this: are fans of those bands actually gonna support them on this festival? for example with the deathcore bands each year, i'm pretty sure only a few of their fans came out to support them because that's the only band that interests them on the lineup. when u see these bands (WC, WOP, SS) on their own club tours, you get a lot of scenesters, brocore dancers, and a some metalheads. but when you see them play Mayhem, you get maybe only 1 or 2 hardcore dancers, maybe only a few scenesters, with the rest of their crowd being metalheads.

same goes for the death metal bands. i'm pretty sure alot of their fans passed this tour because they thought the only bands were seeing were Behemoth and Cannibal Corpse (and maybe Slayer). hell i actually read A LOT of posts last year all over the internet saying that they were skipping the tour because Behemoth and CC were the only good bands and the rest of the bands were shitty.

say they put 2 death metal bands liike.. Nile and Dying Fetus for example. but the rest of the lineup is "shitty mainstream metal" according to death metal listeners. i'm pretty sure they're gonna pass the festival up, same like what happened in '09 with Behemoth and CC.

Also in the Children of Bodom press release for their upcoming album it states they are on Universal Records now. This gives them much more leverage for landing on more mainstream tours like Mayhem or Ozzfest. Godsmack and Deftones are on Universal too and it is possible that all 3 bands could play on Mayhem Fest. Similar to the way Roadrunner Records has placed 2 bands on the tour every year.

On a year by year basis Roadrunner Records usually has 2 bands on the fest, Century Media has had 1, but this year I am not sure if Roadrunner has a band who they can justify putting on the main stage aside from Megadeth or Devildriver. Trivium has already played and if they play again I don't think their popularity/album sales warrant them on the mainstage. As for a CM band it is probably Arch Enemy this year.

Those dates can't be true. It's the EXACT same cities and amphitheatres on almost the exact same dates. In fact, the dates are only about 1 day apart from last year, and when you take into account the way the calendar changes and each date just shifts to the next day (or 2 days during leap years), that maybe those aren't the actual dates. A few dates are in a different order, but it's almost the same exact itinerary that maybe they just have a calendar setting on their website and haven't actually changed any of the dates...

Nice catch there. I thought this year's venues looked almost exactly the same as last year. You're right there's only a day difference between a number of these dates and the ones last year. I just think they're being lazy and booking the same places at the same time for next year. It's on the Mayhem page so i'm guessing the dates for next year are true.

Arch Enemy.. Their last tour here was earlier this year in January, before that it was..... 2007. I have low expectations they're gonna do this horrible tour.

Horrible tour or not it's a great opportunity for any band to be on this. A band like Arch Enemy who's made a OK name for themselves will make some decent money on this tour and get eposure to more fans than they ever would on their own. Why would you say "no" to that unless your schedule is already booked up at that time?

Maximum Rock Mag: So, what's going on with ARCH ENEMY? What are you guys doing now?

Gossow: Well, we got a couple of shows coming up actually this week, we're playing four shows in Holland, Belgium, Germany and Poland, then we go back home to continue writing the new album. Then we go out again in November, we play four shows in the U.K., a headline tour, we haven't been there for a while. Then we come back and go straight to the studio in the beginning of December and start recording the new album. Working title is "Fuck You All"! No! Just kidding! We've got 12 songs for now but I think we're going to end up with 15 or 16 songs, I don't know… We have two months in the studio, December and January. The album has to drop in May. We start playing festivals then already in support of the new album. We're kicking off with the Metalfest festivals where we headline, then we're just gonna do the European festivals season, full on; there's tons of shows, bigger and smaller festivals. Then we go either on a festival trek in the USA or we will start touring Asia, India and Australia.

There really is no connection. Gus G is Ozzy's guitarist and BLS has to move out of the Ozzy shadow sometime. Mayhem is the perfect way to do it.

What I am starting to see is that Mayhem is turning into Ozzfest part 2. So far they have had Slipknot, Machine Head, Mastodon, Disturbed, Slayer, Manson, Behemoth, Walls of Jericho, Killswitch Engage, Hatebreed, Lamb of God, Rob Zomibe, Korn, Shadows Fall, God Forbid, etc on their Festival. It's really like Ozzfest without Ozzy. I would be shocked if these years festival didn't have at least bands who have previously played on Ozzfest.

The only thing I do not want to see is the same main stage bands again. I hope they choose Godsmack or Deftones in place of Disturbed or Manson again...

Well it's just the fact that Zakk was Ozzy's guitar player and the fact that BLS were on half of Ozzfest's multiple incarnations including this years. Considering Zakk always talks about Ozzy like he's his father it just seems like a betrayal of sorts if BLS did Ozzfest's competiton. Not that I really care, it just seemed a little strange to me.

My source is friends with the BLS camp and has always been on the mark about BLS related info. I have not asked him about Ozzfest, but it should not hinder BLS from playing Mayhem. Ozzfest is probably not going to happen or if it does it will be in late August after Mayhem is over with. There will be no direct competition. With BLS asking for Mayhem, it sounds like to me that Ozzfest is not gonna happen.

As for CoF, I would prefer Dimmu if they have a black metal band other than Skeletonwitch.

Ozzfest is probably not going to happen or if it does it will be in late August after Mayhem is over with. There will be no direct competition. With BLS asking for Mayhem, it sounds like to me that Ozzfest is not gonna happen.

But according to the ozzfest website, it states "2011 bands coming soon". I don't know if it will be a tour or one festival date?

um...no. Ill take SOAD (duh), mudvayne (but theyre not touring next year at all), and amon amarth, okay and probably deicide...but thats kinda it. and when I say "kinda", believe me...thats all I want. I like stone sour (sorta) but theyre really not for mayhem fest. my friend said they were REALLY cool dudes to meet though

Would Cradle of Filth be an appropriate band for a tour like Mayhem? Unless they're playing at night, their set probably wouldn't work, or the production would just be wasted if they're playing early on the main stage or on one of the side stages. I remember people saying something similar when they were on Ozzfest in 2003.

That can most certainly happen. When ever i've seen a band with a female singer that has made even an OK name for themselves there have been more women at those shows.

If they had a whole stage of female fronted bands it would get some more ladies to go. I see a good amount of ladies at most metal shows I go to, so at least in my area there's not much of an issue when it comes to that.

Hell, there's even women showing up at Rush shows now:D

Well actually, they are both very similar cases in that I would call them "co-female-fronted" - in other words, Jackie and Laura both share vocal duties with the other front-person and also play leading instrumental parts in some of the songs. Laura especially is more of a co-lead, because many of the main riffs in Kylesa's songs are hers, and her vocals are more prominent nowadays as well.

Either way, I've definitely heard of both bands described as female-fronted in casual conversations.

...and @ bt11763 - if we include bands that simply have a female member who rocks, then the list (http://www.metalsetlists.com/showpost.php?p=228651&postcount=57) gets a whole shitload longer. :fist:

I agree its not a bad idea and all those bands are good. Some more so than others and all fairly different to boot.

i don't understand how one band can make a decision like that. if they do play they'll most likely be on main stage. you can leave or go to the side when they play. we're from the same area too. lawn tickets are usually $20, even if the bands aren't that great it doesn't mean it can't be fun. i liked the '09 lineup a lot better than '10's, especially the 2nd stage bands, but i ended up having a lot more fun '10. just go and have fun, the festival as a whole is a good experience.

Slipknot, Slayer, and Rob Zombie already headlined it. A Black Sabbath reunion won't happen anytime soon, and even if it did, Ozzy's not gonna side with the competition. And Godsmack sounds more like an Uproar band to me.

Kevin would probably jump at the chance to capitalize on SOAD's reunion, and Deftones seem like they'd fit in pretty well.

I've been hearing some rumors about AILD playing on a summer festival. Probably Mayhem but it could be Warped...

both would be awesome. but if they were to get on Mayhem, i think they'd headline a 2nd stage.

I actually heard Apartment 26 are doing a joint press conference w/ Pushmonkey. Going to be a huge event.

Came in this conversation late...but all I saw was Pushmonkey.

they still exist???

The New York Times had excellent coverage of the press conference. There was a ton of international media present also.

They already did Warped, so my bet's on Mayhem.

Children of Bodom confirmed for Wacken. so highly unlikely them or Trivium will play. but you never know since Bullet For My Valentine left Mayhem to play Wacken and came back. i can't see a band passing up Wacken, so if either of them get confirmed for any more festivals that conflicts with the Mayhem routing, then it's pretty much official either of them will play.

Eh, I really don't have much faith in this years line-up at this point. All of the good rumored bands keep signing on to European festivals that conflict with Mayhem's schedule.

i'm really starting to scratch my head wondering who's going to be on this on this. Arch Enemy's off the list since they have 2 confirmed festivals that conflict with the Mayhem routing. i could still see Bodom or Trivium playing and leaving a few days to play Wacken.

some bands i really do not want to play but i have a good feeling they are playing are Disturbed, Godsmack, HellYeah, and Black Label Society. i'm betting at least one of them are going to play.

i could maybe see All Shall Perish, As I Lay Dying and/or Unearth playing. they always get 1 deathcore band, and have a few metalcore bands.

i'm guessing either Goatwhore or Skeletonwitch are on it. i have a good feeling DevilDriver, Cradle of Filth and/or All That Remains will play.

as for main stage bands i'm almost positive SOAD is headining this. i have a good feeling Deftones are playing also. i could definitely see Avenged Sevenfold possibly on it and maybe Rammstein? i'm REALLY hoping this tour doesnt end up having Disturbed and Godsmack headlining though.

watch Bring Me The Horizon land on this festival :lol:

I'm hearing different rumors from different sources that are connected to different bands. These sources usually provide good info. This year they are giving me conflicting reports. I'll just go ahead & throw the names out that I am hearing. We can sort through official info when festivals/bands start confirming it.

SoaD (one source says SoaD are the top billed headliner)
Disturbed (another source says they are the top billed headliner)
Deftones
Devildriver
As I Lay Dying
All That Remains
Cradle of Filth
Skeletonwitch
Times of Grace
The Agonist

Last year my sources were all corroborating the same bands. This year it is totally opposite- unless- unless all of the bits & peices fit together and all of those bands are on the festival. With that said I have a feeling some of those bands will play while others will not. Hopefully more info comes along before they announce it the last week in January.

Wouldn't mind seeing Devildriver and SOAD, that's about it. Disturbed puts on a pretty good show but I saw them at Uproar already and I wouldn't imagine it would be too much different than that one. As I Lay Dying's show is OK but I'm not sure how it would be outdoors.

I agree. If they want something that is similar but much better they should get Dimmu Borgir IMO.

This would be pretty good. Skeletonwitch needs to be on it. I would leave before Disturbed if they were headlining though.

I probably should have made my message more clear. One of my sources tells me SoaD & Deftones are headlining. Another source says no way to SoaD. He says Disturbed is headlining and is unsure who the band playing before them is. It is possible SoaD & Disturbed are the headliners. At this point it is also possible that neither band will play in 2011. Hopefully all is revealed soon.

I really hope Disturbed aren't on it. They were on in 2008, on Uproar last summer, and their live show has become so boring and predictable. Plus them and SOAD headlining would just be like Ozzfest 2006.

+1 Cradle Of Filth is one of the worst bands in all of metal, but if they are there, at least that gives me a pee break.

I hope its SoaD, Godsmack, Deftones on the mainstage.

I hope Disturbed, CoF are not involved, but I am hearing CoF is very likely.

Don't sit with those guys at lunch

And I would imagine bands have to keep info a little tight, but Brann from Mastodon told us they were touring with Slipknot and Dragonforce months before Mayhem Fest even existed. You can imagine the reaction we had, but he couldn't say anything bad about the other bands than "we're gonna try to get High on Fire on it and cool it up a little".

Sadly, I'll probably go no matter what if SOAD is playing. And if they announced their Euro dates weeks ago without any NA dates yet, I'm gonna assume they are.
