Tickets don’t go on sale until April, but this lineup should get metal-heads excited about one of the best heavy metal fests of the summer. “Mayhem 2012 might just be the last and greatest metal festival before the world ends!! So wreak havoc and go out in style!!” says Tom Araya of Slayer.
“Slipknot is headlining this summer’s Mayhem festival and it’s going to be unlike anything you’ve ever felt, sensed, or seen. You miss this, you miss everything. Everyone seems to think that there’s a chance we’re gonna go away. This is the farthest thing from the truth. Stay sic and don’t ever judge us,” says Slipknot’s Clown. “You knew we’d be back. Now, you know we’re coming. This will be a tour people will scarcely want to miss. It will definitely be a show to remember. Can’t wait to see the states again from behind a mask,” adds Corey Taylor.
