Thanks for clarifying. I'd be concerned if that many dudes pulled out of your ass. ;)

At least I didn't mention Eluveitie, Slipknot or The Ocean :eyes:

Eluvetie on the side stage would be sick. Too short of a set but sick. Plus it would get their name out there.

Why don't they throw a hardcore band on the side stage. I mean something even that crosses over like The Ghost Inside.

08-12-2012, 10:33 PM
Brutal that was a good line up. I really hope they go back to having more quality small stage acts and a real 2nd stage. There are losts of bands that could benefit from the exposure and make for a nice day of heavy music: Down, Ghost, Baroness, Cannibal Corpse, Arch Enemy, Skeletonwitch, Revocation, Dillinger Escape Plan, etc.

Alice Cooper would be good in the 3rd from top spot on the mainstage.

I think people are far too focused on whether bands would be a better "fit" on either Uproar or Mayhem. Sure Uproar might be a little more radio rock focused... but honestly when it comes to headliners it seems like there isn't much of a difference between the two tours. Mayhem has no problem booking radio rock bands (see 2008 and 2011) and Uproar has no problem booking heavier bands.

I was thinking last night that Uproar has not had any higher billed bands with screaming vocals other than HellYeah, at least to my knowledge. And by screaming vocals I don't mean a few songs, I mean as in bands where the majority of their songs feature harsh, screaming vocals.

I think that is something that divides Mayhem Fest and Uproar. Bands like Slipknot, Slayer, LoG, Hatebreed, etc won't play Uproar but Mayhem Fest has had other bands with cleaner vocals like Manson, Disturbed, Godsmack, etc play. Maybe I'm wrong here, but since Uproar is geared towards more of the fm radio crowd, you won't be seeing any high profile metal bands on Uproar featuring harsh, screaming vocals unless the band has recieved some previous heavy radio play, like KsE or Rob Zombie.

This actually has made me change my opinion on A7X possibly headlining Mayhem Fest sometime soon, I think it is more likely now. What probably is not likely is Slayer or Lamb of God on Uproar.

Steev
08-13-2012, 02:33 PM
A7X is one of the only arena level bands that hasn't done Mayhem at this point, seems incredibly likely since higher billed acts like Disturbed and now Godsmack have done Uproar and Mayhem



Also saying it now, Testament will be on Mayhem next year

Testament's Native Blood album charted high in the US for a thrash band who is not in the big 4. I good possibility.

Possibilities are pointing to LoG, Hatebreed, Cannibal Corpse and Testament as all being strong contendors to play in 2013. Thats not a bad start imo IF those bands end up playing.

Examiner.com: I was at Mayhem festival in Connecticut this summer, and, of course, you could see DOWN tshirts all over the place. I know you've never been out on any of the five Mayhem fests, and I don't remember seeing you on any Ozzfests either. Has it just worked out that way or do you deliberately avoid the summer festival tours?

Pepper: We did Ozzfest years ago, on the second record. I think we swore we'd never do something like that again. I think DOWN is better served playing on our own. We have so much material and so many ways to run around it, that I think we're better on our own. Getting 30 or 45 minutes on a festival set isn't worth it. Sometimes it works, like in Europe. If DOWN could have a festival and pick our own bands, we'd do it.

Philip & Jimmy played Ozzfest 04 with Superjoint Ritual. Kirk played Mayhem Festival 2011 with Kingdom of Sorrow. While it would mean less pay & less play time, I bet Down would play Mayhem Fest if they had a decent slot, regardless of Pep not being fond of festival tours ;)

It may be overhyped but they do bring some good bands. I mean festival wise with how many there are now its not odd to see bands repeating often enough. Oddly enough Mayhem is the only fest Hatebreed can really fit into anyway.

Yeah really. On these Mayhem Fests there's only about 2 to 3 bands worth seeing, and they're so for down on the bill they only get like 30 to 40 min to play, with the exception of Slayer. This year's was the only Mayhem fest i went to. Showed up at Anthrax, and left after Slayer. The crowd seemed like they were mostly casual Slayer fans. Mostly kids that were into the metalcore stuff and Slipknot, not my thing... I'm just gonna wait for the bands that i want to see do their own headlining shows. It sucks because the last few times Slayer toured the States was at these festivals, besides American Carnage and that was co-headlining too...

Hatebreed was supposed to be on the cruise (and apparently now confirmed for Mayhem Fest) so I would not be surprised to see some of the other bands from the planned cruise (Lamb of God, Machine Head, Suicide Silence, Born of Osiris, Gojira, Periphery, etc.) be a part of the festival.

Every year I get disappointed by the overall lineup, but then I end up going for a handful of bands anyway. :eyes:

Except for the one year I thought that had the best lineup (2009) I didn't end up going, ironically. But that was because I hadn't yet seen Slayer, Cannibal Corpse or Behemoth at the time. The mainstage was actually pretty horrible that year minus Slayer.

It is overhyped but with how its run it has to be overhyped to sell alot.

The only reason I'm thinking of them is because it's what Alex heard backstage... that and they'd appeal to the Asking Alexandria/TDWP fanbase they attracted this past summer.

At first I was like wow that online isn't that bad until I re-read it with Limp Bizkit. They just said they won't tour the US anymore because people don't appreciate them or some bullshit.

Replace them with LOG and that's decent enough. I still don't get why people think Deftones would be on this. If they ever do a huge summer fest like this I see it being Uproar.

Deftones is one band who would fit on both tours. They have some more mellow or commerical material that fits well with Uproar but they also have some heavier songs that would allow them to fit in on Mayhem too.

I couldn't get into to them either for years but I gave Diamond Eyes a good listen and its now one of my all time favorite albums along with White Pony, Self Titled & Saturday Night Wrist. If you are willing to give Deftones a chance I say start with these songs as they play most of these live:

Diamond Eyes
You've Seen The Butcher
Beauty School
Rocket Skates
Sextapes
Hole In The Earth
Cherry Waves
Minerva
Needles & Pins
Back To School
Digital Bath
House Of Flies
Passenger
Be Quiet & Drive
My Own Summer

I like newer Deftones better than old Deftones. After I liked Diamond Eyes, I went back through their albums & found alot more stuff I liked.

What I love about Deftones is that their calmer songs are just as great as the heavier songs. White Pony is personally my favorite, maybe just because it's the first one I got into. But I am a huge fan of Around the Fur and Diamond Eyes as well. I really want to see them headline in a club, but if I go to this next year (not likely, but we'll see) I would be pumped if they were on it.

I agree. The heavy riffs combined with the atmospheric sounds of Frank Delgado (sampler/DJ/keyboards) combined with the melodies make them even more versatile than most bands when it comes to aggressive hard hitting songs combined with the awesome mellow songs too.

Also, if that is true, how the fuck has Testament not gotten on Mayhem yet? Not counting the few dates they did in 2011. With their new album out now, they'd be a perfect rotater, and they're (essentially) one of the few non-repeats.

Yeah it'd be good exposure for them. But they're the biggest they've ever been at this point in their career with Dark Roots coming in at #12. I'd rather see them do their own headlining tour, or play direct support for a good band next summer than for them to play a 30 min set at Mayhem.

I really don't see FFDP/Rob Zombie coheadlining, doesn't seem like the two are strong enough to sell enough tickets. Korn did a lot of the ticket selling in 2010 when RZ was coheadlining, despite his resurgence in popularity I personally don't think he could be the top billed band. I'm personally expecting Avenged Sevenfold to headline with Rob Zombie as coheadliner with 5FDP or LOG in direct support.

FFDP doesn't need to support anything since they are still running on popularity with the younger crowd right now.

I also heard that Lamb Of God is going to play so long as Randy's legal issues are resolved where he is able to play. Was told they are monitoring the situation and could possibly hold LoG as the 'suprise/mystery' last announced band due to their situation.

Looks like Rob Zombie, Lamb Of God & Hatebreed are strong possibilities. I feel like another band will headline with or over Zombie.

I feel like if the 3 mentioned bands are all really coming back the best solution would be bring back having 3 legitimate stages(let's face it the Sumerian thing was ridiculous) and have each one headline.

That way you still get 2 more big names for main(who hopefully haven't played before) and some decent size names for the rotating acts

I would still go if they brought back those 3 bands (especially since Rob Zombie doesn't tour often), but c'mon really 3 major bands that all played the same year all back again on the same lineup? Mix it up a little bit. Clearly there is only so many metal bands that are going to fill amphitheaters, but at least don't put the exact same pairings that have already appeared together in the past few years.

Put Zombie as headliner with support acts like 5FDP, Deftones or Lamb Of God as the coheadliner and he will do fine.

nobody that has headlined mayhem can do the big sheds it plays on their own. zombie is probably on the low end of draw potential in comparison to others, but if manson could be the top billed act, zombie surely can.

good to know though that we have someone here with inside knowledge of uproar and can tell us they learned their lesson booking a popular band like shinedown.

I think we will see Mayhem/Uproar headlined by A7X, Zombie, 5FDP. I'd love to see AiC & Deftones thrown in the mix but neither band does touring festivals in the US that much, although it would be a pleasant suprise & a nice way to shake things up. I think Lamb Of God, Hatebreed & Cannibal Corpse are locked in for Mayhem.

I think KsE, B4MV, In This Moment, AtR, BMTH & Suicide Silence could play Mayhem, Uproar (probably not SS) or Warped.

Not pay but drop the price of your usual $ amount. I know on Ozzfest smaller bands had to pay to play. Even Sevendust, as a small stage headliner, had to back out of Mayhem Fest due not making their normal amount.

Miss May I is one of the best metalcore bands right now. Wouldn't be surprised if they did Mayhem. Plus for how big these guys got fast they are all still pretty young.

Now Chelsea Grin on the other hand is a band that needs to go away. Everytime I see them they get worse and worse and musically they are just going downhill.

SS has just enough popularity that they will probably keep going with a new vocalist imo. While I am not a fan, it was obvious they were very popular amongst the younger people at Mayhem. I see their shirts from time to time where I live (BFE) and in the last year I have really been surprised at how many of them I see when I'm not at a music related event.

I can now confirm Lamb Of God as a main stage band (unless Randy is sentenced to a long prison term in the Czech Republic then of course they will not play).

I also have heard rumors of the mainstage having more than 4 bands and opening up earlier so that more bands can be added to the festival.

I have not been able to confirm that these bands will play the festival but I am hearing they were in negotiations to play:

Deftones
Rob Zombie
Megadeth
Devin Townsend Project
Motionless In White

Imo Zombie, Deftones, Megadeth - 1 of those bands most likely won't play. Everyone seems to think Zombie is a headliner. Megadeth is in the studio rushing to get a new album completed for some reason. Maybe one of those bands does Uproar?

I think it's stupid for people wanting bands from 2 years ago. Personally, I think it should be at least 3 years for band to repeat on the Fest. It's the biggest touring metal festival and there is only so many bands that can be in the top 2 spots. They have done a pretty good job of stopping a shitload of repeats happening year after year and I'm sure they will continue that while they still can.

Add in Cannibal Corpse & Chelsea Grin and you have the full line up minus the two headliners (who at this point I'm gonna guess are Rob Zombie & Deftones) unless the rumors of them adding other bands are true (other rumored bands are Megadeth, Overkill, Devin Townsend Project, Motionless In White). I have to admit the the repeating of the same bands is getting old.
