SLAYER, King Diamond, HELLYEAH, The Devil Wears Prada, Whitechapel, Thy Art Is Murder, Jungle Rot, Sister Sin, Sworn In, Shattered Sun, Feed Her To The Sharks, Code Orange and Kissing Candice have all been announced for Mayhem. While there is no band as mainstream as last years headliners Avenged Sevenfold on here this year, the main stage has a lot to offer.
Tickets are On Sale Beginning Friday April 17, 2015 at 10:00am Local Time
General Admission Festival and Lawn Tickets are only $19.99 including all fees for the first 72 Hours of Onsale (while supplies last). Not bad for 13 bands performing on the ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAIN STAGE and the VICTORY RECORDS STAGE. I’d pay that to see just Sister Sin’s wild and razor edged rock show alone.
The main stage will feature five-time-nominated, two-time Grammy winning thrashers Slayer as headliner, as well as additional performances from King Diamond, HELLYEAH, and The Devil Wears Prada. The VICTORY RECORDS STAGE will feature headliner Whitechapel as well as Thy Art Is Murder, Jungle Rot, Sister Sin, Sworn In, Shattered Sun, Feed Her To The Sharks, Code Orange and Kissing Candice. Nice to see Code Orange on this tour as they will give even the main stage acts a run for their money. And I can’t wait for Jungle Rot to hammer down some real death metal on the unsuspecting.
Kerry King, guitarist of ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAIN STAGE headliners Slayer states, “I don’t know if third time will be a charm, but it will definitely be hellish! Slayer and King Diamond on stage for the first time together in the States- NEVER has Mayhem been more evil. DON’T FUCKIN’ MISS IT.”

ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK MAIN STAGE performer and heavy metal hellion King Diamond states, “This is going to be one hot and hellish summer! Slayer and King Diamond on the same stage – it does not get more devilish than this! We will be putting on a one hour set with the full King Diamond stage production. As for a set list, I’m not gonna reveal that here, but it will be built around “Dreams of Horror”. The Puppet Master will be there with Grandma, and we will even go as far back in time as to 1777 (hint). You’re all in for one hell of a show if you come to this Sabbath!”
