I just got back from Mayhem festival!!

Hey Duders
 
I just got back from Rockstary Energy Drink  Mayhem Festival. it's an all day event with bands that play. for the main stage it was opened with Trivium, Megadeth, Godsmack, and Disturbed. The bands were great live. 
 
4 people went with me. when we got there we walked around and then drank 3 cans of rockstar energy drink. we waited about an hour for that. we could hear the other bands playing from the line. there was the Metal Mulicha there so we watched them go off jumps on their dirt bikes. you know doing flips, and other tricks.
 
i thought Sully  the singer for godsmack looked younger than in their music videos, and images. I didn't know that sully also played the drums. Scully and the drummer were both playing drums on one part and the drums were moving. 
 
the moshpit for godsmack was also crazy. it was just people pushing other people to form a moshpit. i got hit a couple of times from people swinging their arms around. helping people crowd surf, a couple of times people fell or almost fell from people not holding them up. 
 
in rumor news: it is said that Disturbed might be breaking up for some reason. disturbed seemed better than the last time i saw them when they came around.

Only Disturbed is halfway decent from the bands you listed.

I went last year but dont know if i wanna drive all the way to Pittsburgh to see it this year, though it may be sold out already anyways. Its cool but some of the people get too insane at these things, i was in a mosh last year and there was a couple dudes with broken fingers and one guy got his head bashed hard enough that it was gushing blood.

Hope Disturbed dont break up but i gotta say i didn't like Asylum as much as there other albums.

You're crazy.  They are all pretty terrible, but Disturbed is EASILY the worst.

Sounds pretty intense, I've never experienced something like that before. Events like that are far too crazy for me.

Went to the Mayhem Festival when it rolled through Arizona earlier this week. Was one hell of a good time. My local rock station (98 KUPD) sure does get some good gigs; next is the yearly UFest, which has Five Finger Death Punch, Filter, Danko Jones and My Darkest Days this year.

You went to that god awful festival and didn't mention the only good band on the bill, Megadeth?

FFS.

Disturbed are fantastic - as are Trivium.

it was when godsmack was on. people made a huge moshpit for a couple of songs. 
 
also it was hot there, my shirt was wet. people had shirts off so it was also other people's sweat. @Chavtheworld said:

sorry about that. i heard it on the radio, i looked on websites, and people were talking about it at the concert.

@iam3green: It's nothing personal! I just really hope it isn't true, they're like my third favourite band.

That actually sounds like my idea of hell.  Hope you had some fun though.  
 
 
I'm going down to Colorado for Labour day long weekend to see 3 nights of Phish at Dick's Sporting Goods Arena, and since there is on-site camping there it should be like a 3-day love-fest.  It's the only thing on the horizon that I have to look foward too...hence why I mention it here.

Agreed. Disturbed is one of those bands that I'm embarrassed to have liked when I was in my early teens.
