The Mayhem set is awesome. Sadly I didn't get to go. Where were you seated? I heard from my friends that Slayer sucked at Mayhem...but they were on the lawn, so that may have something to do with it.
The American Carnage set is gonna suck. Figuring they'll play 60-70 minutes, they'd only play Seasons, "Angel of Death," "Raining Blood," "South of Heaven," a couple of songs off their new album, "Disciple," and probably "Jihad."
Not bad songs, obviously, but it would only be the three staples and about four new songs. Hopefully they realize that on a short set like this, it would be best to keep new stuff to a minimum- but I doubt that.

Dethklok for me (Not a fan, but they sounded okay live, and well, the tickets were expensive, so I consider that a ruined show sorta). What happened was the band sounded 100x louder than they actually were and I had to hold my ears closed the whole time. Too much of a pansy to walk out.
that sucks about Metallica, hopefully you'll get another chance.
