Rain nor sweltering heat would prevent me from seeing Stone Sour at the House of Blues in Anaheim, CA on Tuesday, February 15th 2011. It was actually raining so I meant that in a literal way.

Mayhem Fest “Before, After, During”

The Rockstar Mayhem Festival is the Shangri-La for metal heads and for many of us the concert highlight of the year. It is bigger, louder, and more freakin badass than anything else running. Mayhem is actually so freakin cool I quit my last “real” job to hop on the Mayhem wagon train for the 2008 tour as a media type dude.

The Rockstar Mayhem Festival 2009 brought the legends, the brutal new metal stars, and some guaranteed crowd favorites out in force. Marilyn Manson, Slayer, Killswitch Engage and Bullet For My Valentine played on the main stage and the likes of Cannibal Corpse, Behemoth, Job for A Cowboy, Black Dahlia Murder, Trivium, All That Remains, God Forbid and White Chapel played the other 2 stages.
