Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival is all about safety first and foremost, and we are taking the proper precautions to insure the utmost safety for fans of hard rock and heavy music who will attend our 6th Annual Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. The festival will offer three (3) 20x20 Shade Tents to keep people out of the sun. We will have an army of emergency medics and emergency medical vehicles directly onsite and on hand in the case that anyone has any needs for medical attention at all from the heat. We always urge fans and notify them accordingly on the official mayhem website for fans to pace themselves. Please hydrate by drinking lots of water, "wear sunscreen" and think logically and with common sense to enjoy the day and get the full festival experience

2013 sees the Hatecrew returning home to Nuclear Blast with the 8th studio album of their career. Recorded and produced by the band in their in-house studio in Helsinki as well as in Petrax Studio, Hollola, with support from Peter Tägtgren (HYPOCRISY, PAIN), “Halo Of Blood” distinctly seizes on the early works’ sense of melody and coarseness, while putting it all into a modern-day soundscape and venturing quite a few new steps, such as presenting both the band’s fastest and slowest song ever. Mastermind Alexi Laiho states: “Believe it or not, but we’ve managed to keep it fresh and new while still maintaining the elements that make COB’s sound recognizable. Lyric-wise, `Halo Of Blood´ comprises topics we’ve never dealt with before.” Rounded off by a classic COB cover artwork created by Sami Saramäki, “Halo Of Blood” bares the band’s roots and lets them sprout into 10 timeless anthems of sheer magnificence. As Laiho promises: “Whether you enjoy it with a beer or a glass of water, I’m sure you’ll have a blast!” Obey the reaper!
