HELLYEAH’s frontman says all bands on Mayhem Festival are “awesome”

Posted by on July 30, 2015

The controversial and chaotic Mayhem festival has been the favorite topic everywhere for a while. To recap everything it has happened really quick: the festival co-founder called the current metal scene “gray, bald, and fat”; Kerry King, guitarist for one of the headliners of the festival called him a “douche” for saying that; King then said he wouldn’t pay to attend the fest himself and called some of the second stage acts “at best a fourth stage”; Jungle Rot’s frontman Dave Matrise, one of the bands on that stage, got ticked off and called him out for “sabotaging the tour” by saying that; finally, co-founder John Reese had to step in and called for everyone to unite instead of fight with each other, trying to amend all the non-sense happening; and now, with a few dates remaining on the tour, HELLYEAH’s frontman, Chad Gray, spoke up and gave his opinion about the festival:

…Despite all the flying talk around mayhem it really is an honor and privilege to share the stage and tour with all these bands. Slayer, king diamond (my teen years) of course, devil wears Prada are fucking cool as shit and the second stage bands white chapel, thy art is murder, sister sin, jungle rot, shattered sun, feed her to the Sharks, kissing Candice ,sworn in and code Orange are all awesome as well. And heavy as fuck! I’ve bought all these bands albums (at least the newest releases) and all are equally pretty fucking awesome. Metal is always here and everyone is bringing it as fucking hard as they can. If you have the means you should come out to the last few mayhem shows and get your fix of the legends as well as the newer bands. I’m a fan of metal so I’m just gonna be Switzerland on all the nay saying and shit talking. I have a ton of respect for all these bands and wish them all the best. RE-FUCKING-SPECT! Be awesome hellions! -Chadnessss

It’s good to see some positive outlook after all the drama going around this tour and with a few days left for the tour to be over, we will have to wait and see if it will come back next year.

  Wait’ll they get a load of me;) despite all the flying talk around mayhem it really is an honor and privilege to share the stage and tour with all these bands.
