Mayhem Fest 2013 Atlanta
Blood, Sweat, Mud and METAL!!!!!!!!! Those 4 words right there sum up Mayhem Fest in Atlanta this year. From the Metal Mulisha jump show all the way to the main stage to see 5FDP and Rob Zombie, start to finish this festival was flat out Mayhem!!! Jumping between the Jagermeister stage and the Musicians Institute stage, dodging mosh pit after mosh pit band after band got you more and more stoked for the main stage.
The opportunity to meet John 5 and Piggy D at Rob Zombies merc tent and talk to them for a few minuets was a pretty awesome experience. Later that day, I would find myself at that very spot again waiting in line to head backstage to meet Mr Zombie himself. Autograph signing and photo ops with him and the rest of the band was pretty cool of the station and the record company to set that up. Talk about being lost for words meeting a icon musician, and film director. Granted you were 1 of like 75 there to shake hands and get a picture and autograph quick was a hell of an experience.
Shortly after that, MAIN STAGE MADNESS!!!!!! Amon Amarth kicked it off with some kick ass Viking Metal!!!!!!! Talk about starting it off right!! If youre a fan of avatar, like I am, then you’ll defiantly love Amon Amarth. Mastodon was up after that and keep you on youre feet and your head banging. Then 5FDP came out and blew the lid off the place.
