Concert Review: Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival – The Main Stage

Asking Alexandria was technically asked to open the main stage, but in reality, they were ex post facto to Anthrax, and began performing as soon as the veteran band had finished. As such, double A (not Arn Anderson,) was forced to deal with the nearly impossible task of playing to a transitory audience. They had completed “Welcome,” and were through a good portion of “Closure” before the bulk of the crowd moving from one stage to another had even had their tickets checked.

Slipknot Bassist Paul Gray Found Dead

Paul Gray, bassist for heavy metal band Slipknot, was found dead Monday morning in an Iowa hotel. Foul play has been ruled out, but no cause of death has been determined. Toxicology tests will be done on Tuesday. Paul had just joined the metal revival supergroup Hail!, and his wife Brenna is pregnant with the couple's first child. Gray had done one stint in rehab, and in interviews talked at length about his struggles with drug addiction and abuse.

Video: Slipknot's "Snuff"

Before we get going I just want to go on record as saying this post is in no way an endorsement of Slipknot, their music, or kids who hate their parents because they won't let them stay out past 10 on a school night. However, I feel it's my responsibility as a blogger to bring you this video. If you mute it you get a pretty decent little freak-out that includes Malcolm McDowell, cross dressing and even some nasty cuts. Even Ashley Laurence from "Hellraiser" shows up for some fun. I'm sure most of us can relate. Who hasn't broken into a girl's apartment, dressed up in her clothes and then cut themselves wide open with a broken wine glass. Whatever, don't judge.
