The sixth annual Rockstar Energy Mayhem festival lineup has been unveiled and I’m already beginning to lose my mind! The festival will be headlined by shock rocker/horror director Rob Zombie along with Five Finger Death Punch and will also see performances from Children Of Bodom, Machine Head, Behemoth, Job For A Cowboy, and many more.
Personally I’m very excited to see Rob Zombie again as well as get a first chance to see Behemoth, Amon Amarth, and Battlecross.
Tickets for the festival go on sale this Friday at 12pm local time. The full 26-date trek and lineup can be seen below.

Hard rock/heavy metal female-fronted band Butcher Babies have signed to Century Media Records and aim to release their debut full-length album in Summer 2013.

“Century Media has been a huge supporter of Butcher Babies for a long time, and it feels natural to join their tight knit family. It’s an honor for us to be on a roster amongst many other bands that have inspired us for so long. We couldn’t be more excited about the future of this union.”
