Attika 7 And Scorpion Child Added To This Year’s Mayhem Fest

Posted by on June 13, 2013

Shortly after Behemoth dropped off of this summer’s Mayhem Fest, tour founder Kevin Lyman promised that they would announce a replacement soon. And today, the touring festival has revealed not one, but TWO new additions to this year’s lineup in lieu of Behemoth.

Joining the Jagermeister Stage will be Attkia 7, the supergroup whose members include ex-Biohazard frontman Evan Seinfeld and famed motorcycle builder Rusty Coones. Meanwhile, Nuclear Blast Entertainment’s recent hard rock signing Scorpion Child has been added as headliners of the Sumerian Records side stage. Considering that Behemoth were one of the main reasons many fans were excited for Mayhem Fest this year, these new additions (replacements?) might come as a disappointment. Still, both bands will likely be worth catching at the festival, and there are still plenty of good acts to catch (hell, Amon Amarth playing right before Mastodon on the mainstage? You got us sold!).
