Rockstar Mayhem Fest 2014 Lineup Revealed

Banner - Rockstar Mayhem Fest

It was just a few weeks ago that the 2014 Rockstar Mayhem Fest announced the tour dates for this year’s event and while I made some notation about it I held back on posting anything since we still had not heard the full roster of performing bands. That secret has been revealed today y friends so without any further adieu, “Ladies and Gentlemen of the Metal Republic here are your 2014 Mayhem Fest Bands!!!!!”

Lineup: Avenged Sevenfold, Korn, Asking Alexandria, Trivium, Cannibal Corpse, Suicide Silence, Body Count, Miss May I, Mushroomhead, Emmure, Veil of Maya, Upon A Burning Body, Texas Hippie Coalition, Darkest Hour, Ill Nino, Wretched, Islander and Erimha.

Looking it over it is clearly a mixed bag of stuff for sure. One has to wonder if Avenged Sevenfold will sap the headlining spot with Korn on some dates or if they will remain the direct support for the run of the tour. I have never seen Avenged to date and am excited about their appearance. I’ve also never seen Asking Alexandria, Ill Nino, Wretched and Erimha and while I think there might be couple of more to list, those are the ones that come to my memory the fastest. So with that being said there are a few bands that I expected to see performing along with a few surprises that made me sit back and say “Really Guys?”. What are your thoughts about this particular roster and what do you love or hate about it? Please let me know in the comments on this post as I have left them open for you to do so. The full run of dates are below for your planning. Will you be attending or is this a pass? I have highlighted the ones closest to my own Metal Command HQ.
