That's one of the better lineups they've had. Rob Zombie and 5FDP are a joke obviously. But the small stage bands are gonna be sick! Huntress and Battlecross?! Those are some quality small stage bands. Also interested in whether or not CoB will be a mainstage band or sidestage.

fck these kids bashing on Emmure and Frankie. This band is more hardcore than they will ever be. Just because they dont wear skinnies and have long? hair doesnt mean they cant make some sick shit. They have a record deal and you dont. Quit your bitching. You better pray I dont know where you are. gay.

City in the Sea being on this has to very intense for them. Just getting signed and having really play the states so much, and to get on huge bill like this. Congrats to them and awesome for Sumerian to recognize their potential.

You know who would fit great on this? Emmure.

anonymous
3/18/2013 4:14:23 PM
I like how theres all these good bands on here and all you gays talk about is Emmure like they are some kind of big deal

3/18/2013 4:16:24 PM
Emmure fans will be there blowing their paychecks from their job at Lidz.

I think I just shit my pants laughing at the "hardcore kid" reppin' his hardcore cred. And guarantee he doesn't listen to real hardcore. Get fcked.

3/18/2013 4:19:26 PM
would go for Behemoth and Mastodon

most of the bands on the line up are shit though

anonymous
3/18/2013 4:19:44 PM
I listen to real hardcore you moron. Rotting Out, Sworn In, TUI and Soul search

shit fest shit bands, only good band is the mighty BEHEMOTH

anonymous
3/18/2013 4:28:55 PM
Only losers who don't get laid listen to Behemoth and AA,but i guess that's the mayhem crowds

anonymous
3/18/2013 4:30:07 PM
this is about the worst lineup i have ever seen for mayhemfest. Behemoth and Job for a Cowboy are the only real good bands on there. Mastodon is good on cd, but their vocals are terrible live. Rob Zombie would be cool to see for the theatrics, but thats it. Horrible lineup!

3/18/2013 4:34:36 PM
Emmure shouldn't be on this. But, at least Fred Durst will be stoked.
Best line-up in a few years though. BOO, JFAC, CoB, Amon Amarth, Zombie, and fcking BEHEMOTH. I might actually spend the money to go to this.

anonymous

Real hardcore bands are doom, infest, govermemt warning, spazz, cult ritual. But all you fcking short shorts wear flannel over your foundation shorts that live in sheltered lives but acts like your hard and from the sttuireets are fcking pussies.

Sworn In are despised in their own local scene. Case and point.

RE: Sworn In - if your biggest "hit" is a Linkin Park cover, you are not in a hardcore band.

they should call this tour the gay tour for gays. holy shit. someone should gas every date to weed out the gene pool. real talk.

This festival is shit every year. Only good bands are Amon Amarth and Behemoth, and even they are nothing to get all riled up over.

anonymous

Hating on Emmure is so 2008. In 15 years you hypocritical gays will probably regard them as legends just because they are old, the same way you douchebags currently fawn over Integrity and Ringworm

anonymous
3/19/2013 6:55:21 AM
They should call it the Wal-Mart Tour...everything they have is generic massed produced shit...

3/19/2013 8:54:28 AM
Not stoked for this lineup. Some decent bands but not enough to shell out a bunch of money and put up with shirtless drunk douche bags with tribal tattoos push pitting. Zombie's live theatrics are cool but damn, most of these bands have been on Mayhem in the last 2-3 yrs anyway

anonymous
3/19/2013 9:01:51 AM
Say what you want about Emmure, but those fckers tour relentlessly ands work harder than alot of people with "regular" jobs.

anonymous

^sitting in a van 10-12 hours a day then playing breakdowns for 45 minutes to an hour a night then doing that every day is not working harder than me, gay.
