The Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival came to the Riverbend Music Center in July. This tour is easily the biggest Metal festival of 2012, and the lineup this year is pretty incredible. You have two of the Big Four thrash bands, Anthrax and Slayer, as well as Motorhead, Slipknot, As I Lay Dying, Asking Alexandra, The Devil Wears Prada, Whitechapel & more. Work commitments kept me from making it to the venue for the 2 P.M. start time, but I did manage to make in for the start of Anthrax’s blistering set.
This was the second time I have seen Anthrax in 2012, and much like the first time, the bodies started flying as soon as the music began. The security guys in the pit were having a time keeping up with all of the crowd surfers. Anthrax was incredible as always, but as good as they were, they weren’t the best band of the evening. I watched the conclusion of Anthrax’s set, and made my way to the main stage for As I Lay Dying.
This was a night of many firsts for me. I haven’t ever seen As I Lay Dying, Slayer or Motorhead, so I was excited to see these bands play for the first time. I have to admit, I am not much of a metalcore fan, but As I Lay Dying was very good at what they do. They hair was flying, and lead singer Tim Lambesis never stayed in place for a minute. My neck hurt just watching him perform. Lots of headbanging and hair flying fun!
Next up was the mighty Motorhead. I can’t believe that I haven’t seen the band play before now, but Lemmy Kilmister and company were excellent. Lemmy is still getting it done at the nice young age of 66. Of course, Motorhead closed out their set with the one and only “Ace of Spades” and it was as awesome as I expected it to be.
To my ears, the best band of the evening without question was Slayer. I readily admit that I haven’t been a big Slayer fan, but they blew me away. The band was on fire all night (as was their stage, with tons of pyro.) Kerry King might just be the most metal looking musician ever! I enjoyed watching him play.
I wasn’t able to photograph Slipknot, so I grabbed my seat for their set. I saw the band in the inaugural Mayhem festival back in 2008, so I already knew that they put on an in incredible show. They didn’t disappoint. Their is always something going on the stage during a Slipknot show. From Clown’s hydraulic drum kit, to the masks, random crowd surfing, and pyro you never know where to look during their set. I can’t remember Slipknot coming to Cincinnati before, but I am pretty sure this was their first time here. Judging from the people who raised their hand when Corey Taylor asked if it was their first time seeing Slipknot, there were thousands of people who have not seen them play before. They got their money’s worth at the 2012 Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival. This is a great festival for fans of metal music. I can’t wait until the next one.
The World’s Largest Touring Heavy Music Festival Gives Back to Our Servicemen and Women
The ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL is proud, once again, to announce the METAL OF HONOR program, an awareness and fundraising effort focused on the needs and challenges of our active military, veterans and their families. The ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL believes strongly in honoring our country’s servicemen and women with these efforts as a way to say thank you for the services they provide on a day-to-day basis, overseas and on U.S. soil.
ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL producers John Reese and Kevin Lyman stated, “Giving back and showing gratitude to those that have sacrificed for all of us and those who continue to sacrifice is the message we want to spread.”
As a major part of the program this year, the ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL will be making lawn tickets available that will have a direct impact on a charity in your local market! Beginning Friday, June 22 at 10am and continuing for 72 hours, a donation will be made to your local charity for each individual lawn ticket sold through the TEXT TO DONATE program! Text MAYHEM to 41518 to make a $5 donation to METAL OF HONOR and be entered to win a METAL OF HONOR Meet & Greet with Slipknot (details coming soon)!
Additionally, as part of the 2012 METAL OF HONOR program, the ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAYHEM FESTIVAL is helping promote the goal of HIRING OUR HEROES. The METAL OF HONOR tent, located in the festival area, will have a local US Chamber of Commerce representative at each venue providing information on local companies actively seeking to hire veterans.
All military veterans attending the festival are invited to go to the METAL OF HONOR tent, located in the festival area, to obtain their METAL OF HONOR wristband. The METAL OF HONOR wristband will identify them as veterans for the crew, bands and fellow patrons. The METAL OF HONOR tent will provide information on the various ways the tour, sponsors and bands are showing their appreciation to them that day. Each veteran will receive a raffle ticket to win a personalized commemorative plaque to be presented to one of these hometown heroes, on the main stage, to thank them for their service and sacrifice!
