Pathetic how recycled this tour is and it's only on its 6th round. Plus the damn prices keep rising, 1st one had $10 lawn seats!

Not only same old bands, same bands that your together!!! I am glad I decided to skip out on the LoG tour now :D Mayhem has recycled the Manson/Slayer tour and now the LoG/InF/H8breed tour.

When comparing this tour to Ozzfest, it is not much of a contest. Ozzfest broke out lots of bands to them masses, from the core bands to the swedish bands to Dimmu Borgir to Nu Metal. They had almost every major act tour their festival.

Mayhem is using the same 6 bands to headline it seems like and the same 6 b level bands to play the main stage or headline/rotate on the small stage. And the only new band they have helped out is 5FDP.

I'm really inclined to agree with Manks now. Unless they get some new headline acts. Deftones would be great, Rob Zombie not so much.

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.
Well, you have to be realistic. This is a shed tour, so they have to at least have a couple of big names that can fill sheds. There just aren't that many of those bands out there...and some of them are too big for something like this, like Metallica would never play Mayhem. Maiden would never play Mayhem. There's only, like, 20 or so bands that realistically can headline this thing, and of those 20 you have to find 2 or 3 willing to do it at a given time. Hard to do.

this, and meanwhile names like Anthrax, Motorhead, Megadeth, etc who arent big enough to headline get a crack

previous years had a decent mix of new bands and established names on the side stages(I mean from year one who had bills loaded with bands that had already been around awhile-Ozzfest could afford newer bands because they always had Ozzy and one or two other arena names so they could pad the lineup with virtually anyone) they do need to drop the Sumerian stage though

I for one am glad In Flames is coming back(since they missed a good portion of 2011), but now let's look at bands that could do Mayhem that haven't(or atleast haven't done the whole tour):
Testament, Prong, Exodus, Arch Enemy, Soilwork, Children of Bodom, Devildriver, Municipal Waste, Periphery, The Faceless, Bury Your Dead, Dillinger Escape Plan, Black Tusk, Thy Will Be Done, The Acacia Strain, Battlecross, Converge, Skeletonwitch, Revocation, A Life Once Lost, Dirge Within, Crowbar, Darkest Hour

I mean there's just a handful, and notice none could headline a shed festival

I understand In Flames coming back this soon since they only played about 12 shows on Mayhem 11. They should bring back High on Fire this year too since they had to drop off. Otherwise, I don't get it. I mean I don't even really have a problem with the other repeats since it's been at least 3 years since they played, but the same pairings (I mean I enjoyed myself at Mayhem 10, but I don't want three of the same major bands again all in the same year. Spread the wealth!) I think they are making a huge mistake if they don't book Killswitch Engage this year. It's been four year since they did it and the return of Jesse would a huge ticketsale booster. A Rob Zombie/Deftones/Killswitch main stage with Testament/Miss May I( like it or not, they are big enough to headline a sidestage)/ and In Flames or another band like Overkill, All That Remains, Parkway Drive, or maybe even The Sword rotating slots and the return of two legit side stages would sell tickets.

I agree, KSE are overdue for a return to Mayhem. I still think Deftones are better suited for Uproar and would rather see Lamb of God in that main stage spot.

The big difference between this tour and Ozzfest is that Ozzy alone can sell Ozzfest tickets. Lamb of God were co-headliners in 2007 on Ozzfest, not that they can really sell Amphitheaters, but because people went to Ozzfest mainly for Ozzy, some people even show up late just for Ozzy. I'm sure the Mayhem people are crying that they can no longer get Disturbed. People here said the year they had that short Ozzfest(2010), more people were at those than at the Mayhem's at the same venue.

Fact is you need multiple names to fill places, this years Uproar did well because it had Godsmack/Shinedown/Staind to move tickets. Its just a fact these tours are gonna have repeats unless other bands start selling more tickets on their own.

I know a while back there was speculation about Avenged Sevenfold being on main stage - it seemed to make a lot of sense as they are quite popular and not a repeat (two guest dates don't count). Did someone confirm they aren't being considered any more or did they announce Euro dates or something?

To the best of my knowledge they're still in the running. Makes sense to me.

The only talks of headliners I have heard is that Deftones were offered a spot on Mayhem Fest and that Roadrunner Records were trying to get Zombie on a high profile tour like Mayhem/Uproar to promote his new album. Its very possible that 2 other bands will headline. I think A7X, Korn, 5FDP, Alice In Chains were likely in the running too. It shouldn't be long until there is info leaked about who the headliners are.

It should be noted that Kevin Lyman said the dates/cities will be revealed in early December which sounds like there won't be a presale this year. That makes me think that they don't want presale buyers bitching after the line up is announced which means there are probably a bunch of repeat bands this year.

I find that hard to believe. Not only does Nuclear Blast not have a huge hand mainstream in the states but for most of the Mayhem crowd none of those bands are big draws. I'd be safe to say that most of the 15 year olds there have never heard of Exodus or Fleshgod.

If Slayer wants to go to Europe with Gary Holt, I doubt Exodus will play Mayhem. I guess it's possible that they could get Rick Hunolt to fill in again, but I really doubt that he can take another full summer off from work or whatever takes up his time these days.

I think if a larger record label had their own stage at Mayhem Fest that it would be better than the Sumerian Stage. Nuclear Blast or even a label like Century Media would likely have a stage that would be significantly better, probably like the smaller jager stage that was used a few years ago.

I dunno. Fleshgod acquired quite a few younger/scene kid fans from doing Summer Slaughter tour. When I saw them with Decapitated, the pit was full of high school kids. Touring with All Shall Perish/Carnifex also had to increase their notoriety with the young people.

I'm with you on this one. They need a legit second stage again that doesn't overlap with the Jager Stage. Even though I didn't give a shit about any of the bands on the Sumerian stage last year, I felt kind of slighted not seeing as many bands last year than I did in previous years.

Bodom would be great for Mayhem & makes sense if the Nuclear Blast stage is true. I heard Suicide Silence, who recently signed with Nuclear Blast, were likely to play Mayhem Fest until their vocalist passed away. Maybe this is the replacement? Either Mayhem Fest or Summer Slaughter...

If Nuclear Blast has a deal for a stage on Mayhem Fest it would be wise to showcase Bodom there instead of Summer Slaughter imo. Time will tell.

Yeah man. In my opinion, there's no point in just putting bands people know on these kind of festivals. Yeah, you gotta have well known bands to sell, but the promoters should want to help out smaller bands that they see potential in. And Mayhem Fest has helped out a few bands, so there's no reason to rule out smaller bands because tons of people don't know 'em.

Exactly. For example, look what Summer Slaughter has done for bands like Fleshgod Apocalypse and Exhumed (especially Fleshgod). Smaller bands need these festivals in order to expose themselves to a larger audience. I think a Nuclear Blast tent would be an excellent idea (not to mention the selection of bands are WAY fucking better that the bands at the Sumerian tent this year.)

So the only real info is Rob Zombie. Dark and heavy means a lot of different things to a lot of different people, so I'll just hope he doesn't mean more -core.

Behemoth has a more mainstream appeal, Watain does not. And if by some chance Watain was offered a spot on this tour, what makes you think they would even take it? They're an extremely image conscious band and there's no way they would want to be associated with this.

Sumerian spent a tremendous amount of money to have that dedicated stage this year. I can't see any other label having the budget for something like that.

They should have shelled out a little more money and rented a real stage.

You mean the Watain which got nominated and won a Swedish Grammy for best Hard Rock performance and actually attended to receive the award?

So tr00 and kvlt of them.

I'm sure they would jump on this tour if they got offered it.

With the Testament tour skipping alot of the normal cities most bands play on their first headline tour for a new album, it makes me wonder if they have a bigger tour line up for later next year? They have played a few one offs in place of bands on Mayhem Fest before & with the success of their last album it wouldn't be a surprise to see Testament play Mayhem Fest 2013 imo.

I saw Kevin Lyman speak at UMass Amherst last night about his experiences with Warped, Mayhem, etc. When talking about Mayhem, he said he likes to use the fest to help smaller bands develop. He then proceeded to say that he was "proud to say that one of the co-headliners in 2013 was opening on the side stages in 2008." I think it's safe to say that Five Finger Death Punch is locked in as a co-headliner, sadly.

I do follow you on twitter because I know once you've posted something, generally there is good discussion about the topic. If you are going to scoop tidbits of information from here, why are you not giving appropriate attribution on your Facebook? Instead you ask for people to cite you as the source of information. It's not as though the poster who mentioned the new information is a top secret source.

Either way, a weaker lineup than last year certainly, but not as bad as Korn/Zombie or Disturbed/Godsmack. Depending on the ancillary bands, I'll probably still attend.

This is a little off topic, but related in some way and I don't want to start another thread regarding a corporatized metal package, but does anyone have any idea on when Ozzfest information might come to pass?

In 2010 info wasn't released until around late April/early May. Back in its heyday the info for Ozzfest was released by Thanksgiving some years and after the new year some years.

Sure, if you think DEP and Periphery are the only bands on the label. The rest of the label is a bunch of shitty deathcore, unless I'm forgetting someone, but if you can tell me some bands on there that I may have missed I have an open mind. I'll check em out.

>Animals as Leaders
>The Faceless
>After the Burial
>Born of Osiris
>Stick to Your Guns
>Veil of Maya
>Structures
>Stray From the Path

I'll give you Animals as Leaders. I haven't heard Stick to Your Guns, Structures, Stray From the path, TRAM, or HAARP Machine, but I have heard The Faceless, BoO, and After the Burial and they aren't my cup of tea. Of course, I'm an old school guy. I fully admit that I just don't get deathcore. At all. Of course, people who were my age now in back in the day were probably like, "Overkill? Fuck that shit!" So I get it. I'm an old out of touch fart. And I'm cool with that.

It's cool that you don't like them (I happen to, but that's not clearly a problem), but if you think The Faceless, Animals as Leaders, and The HAARP Machine are "prog or djentcore" you are completely off your fucking rocker (Especially on the first two).

I'd agree AAL could be seen as a little more, but they're music isn't much different the rest of the lots. It's a little more atmospheric, but that's it. The wank and djent-like chug is super present. HAARP are typical djentcore. Faceless, not much core really, but still dumb wank prog like. Frankly, I'm just falling out of love with the "progressive" metal. It's so uninspired and trendy.

I guess I'm in the minority here as I like Five Finger Death Punch. I've just recently gotten into them, I really enjoyed their first two albums especially War Is The Answer. I haven't listened to American Capitalist so I don't know how it fares yet. I wouldn't mind seeing them live if it was part of a package tour. They co-headlined before Godsmack in a festival a fair distance away from me. It was a little too pricey for my taste though.

I wish Godsmack would headline a tour like this. They were before Disturbed on Mayhem in 2011 and before Shinedown on Uproar this year. I really love both of those bands too, but have already seen them live. So I would like to see Godsmack live at some point, preferably as a headline closer.

Its discussed here cause this is METALsetlists.com.

Thrash. Black. Sludge. Death. Core. Alt. Industrial. Speed. Classic. Power. Groove. Nu. These are all forms of metal whether you like them or the bands that play it is up to you BUT unless the rules change people are free to discuss any parts of it they like. One reason it has so many pages is because haters come & hate. Which is odd to me because usually when someone posts about bands/tours I don't like I leave it alone. More power to those who like it.

Some folks here used to bitch about having numerous threads overrunning the forum for Mayhem/Warped/etc and now that there is only one they come here post about how they don't like it either.

It was far from being finalized or routed, etc. A few weeks after this was told to me Brent Hinds says they are hitting the studio in early January. Anthrax has a reissue of Worship Music + cover songs due in March. Slayer has a new album due out in the first half of next year. It sorta makes sense. I have not heard any more about it.

Fair enough, they just seem better suited for something like Uproar, in my opinion.

I agree on Uproar. 5FDP wouldn't be so bad if Ivan didn't try to copy Anselmo so much & if they dropped the clean vocal choruses on 3/4 of their songs. The debut album was solid imo but the last two not so much. They had potential to be heavier but instead decided to become a more metal version of Nickleback.

Ivan's cleans are the one potential saving grace to FFDP. It's his Pseudo-tough guy act he puts on for the "harsh" vocals and cringe worthy lyrics that really drive me nuts. He was never a great lyricist even on that first album, but from War is an Answer onwards his lyrics have gotten so repetitive and much more terrible. And that wouldn't be all that bad (there are tons of bands I love whose lyrics aren't very good) if the music itself wasn't so mundane. It's not that they aren't heavy enough or anything. The songwriting is just not good.

I actually prefer his screaming vocals. Let me say his clean vocals during the verses are fine. Its the multi layered, processed vocals during the chorus of damn near all of their songs that I dislike. I agree with you on everything else. They try to sound too much like Pantera meets Nickleback imo. The thing that bothers me is that they have potential to be a good metal band if they tried imo. First thing they need to do is get rid of Kevin Churko as producer. He does Ozzy & In This Moment & if it weren't for the vocals & guitar solos all 3 bands recent albums would sound virtually identical - riffs, tones, song structures, etc barring just a few songs.

If for some reason I get an opportunity to interview Ivan. I'm going to ask him when he's getting back together with Motograter.

I've joked with him about that band, he has a sense of humor about it

Lol I was at the last show he played with them @ Ozzfest 03 in St. Louis. They walked off stage after 3 songs. Looks like he moved on to bigger things.

I was at that one as well. The whole thing was quite odd.
