Mayhem Fest Lineup Confirmed: Slayer, King Diamond, The Devil Wears Prada and Hellyeah Attending

Close
Buffy the Vampire Slayer turns 20

Music Times had reported rumors nearly a month ago but Mayhem Fest made its lineup official today, declaring that Slayer and King Diamond would be the major headliners. Other acts performing will include Hellyeah, the Devil Wears Prada, Whitechapel and Thy Art Is Murder.

This is going to be Slayer's third time headlining Mayhem Fest during its inception during 2008. It will be King Diamond's first time performing as part of the event, and he made it out to be quite a spectacle based on his statement, which was full of hints, both creepy and ambiguous.

"Slayer and King Diamond on the same stage-it does not get more devilish than this!" he said. "We will be putting on a one-hour set with the full King Diamond stage production. As for a set list, I'm not gonna reveal that here, but it will be built around Dreams of Horror. The Puppet Master will be there with Grandma, and we will even go as far back in time as to 1777 (hint). You're all in for one hell of a show if you come to this Sabbath!"
