The festival will offer three (3) 20×20 Shade Tents to keep people out of the sun. We will have an army of emergency medics and emergency medical vehicles directly onsite and on hand in the case that anyone has any needs for medical attention at all from the heat.   We always urge fans and notify them accordingly on the official Mayhem website for fans to pace themselves.

HUNTRESS New Album Available Now

HUNTRESS generated a massive amount of buzz since the release of their debut album Spell Eater in 2012. The follow up to last year’s kill, Starbound Beast, is available now via Napalm Records. Purchase on iTunes and Amazon.

The band recently completed work on a video for their song Zenith.  Watch the video teaser HERE. The clip was directed by Phil Mucci, whose video for HIGH ON FIRE’s Fertile Green was named best video of 2012 by Revolver.

In support of the release of Starbound Beast HUNTRESS are taking part in the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. In addition to performing everyday, vocalist Jill Janus is hosting the first ever Shred-Meister guitar competition. Festival attendees can go to the Jägermeister tents on site and audition for a chance to shred for 10 seconds on the main stage. Each day, one of the 10 finalists will win a custom Jägermeister guitar from Schecter and the overall winner at the end of the tour will win a custom Jägermeister full stack and head courtesy of Peavey Electronics.

Starbound Beast was recorded at Hobby Shop Studios in Los Angeles with famed producer Zeuss (Shadows Fall, Hatebreed, Agnostic Front). Artwork was created once again by Vance Kelly (Slayer, Ghost B.C., Mastodon).

 

HUNTRESS spawned from the preternatural union of Jill Janus with underground metal bands Professor and Dark Black. They thrive on thundering drums, heavy riffs, spectral solos and catchy choruses that come from the band’s musical concoction of occult science and bong rips. HUNTRESS remains true to the roots of melodic heavy metal with a penchant for thrash, death and black metal.

BATTLECROSS Name Shannon Lucas Session Drummer

BATTLECROSS completed work on their sophomore album, which will be due out this summer during their tour as part of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. Recording has been completed and the finishing touches are being applied to the tracks and art. During tracking, one of metal’s most acclaimed drummers, Shannon Lucas, stepped in as the session drummer for the album.

Lucas comments:

“Being a fan of Battlecross, it is an honor to be a part of their new record. I can’t wait for the world to hear this album.”

Producer Eyal Levi adds,

“I am so beyond excited for the chance to produce Shannon Lucas on the new Battlecross record. He’s one of the true BEASTS of metal drumming. The man’s skills are literally untouchable. Combine that with a badass rising star of a band and I think we’ve got the makings of a crushing record!”

As previously announced, Kevin Talley will be stepping in to play drums for the band on their two upcoming live performances, the New England Metal & Hardcore Fest (4/19) and the Orion Music & More Festival (6/08-6/09). Drummer Mike Kreger has parted ways with the band to focus on some new opportunities and attend to personal business. BATTLECROSS will announce their new permanent member once a final decision has been made.

The album, scheduled to be released in early summer, also features a guest guitar solo by Producer Jason Suecof, and will be mastered by Joey Vera of Armored Saint. Vera also mastered the band’s cover of Pantera’s Fucking Hostile, which was released as a single last summer.
