Everyone's favorite all day Heavy Metal Fest came to DTE Energy Music Theater on Thursday. The Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival brought 20 bands to town this year. We were blessed with cool summer weather and no rain, a first for Mayhem in Detroit. The tour included more performers than ever and featured four stages, the Rockstar Energy Main Stage, Coldcock American Herbal Whiskey Stage, Headbang for the Highway Sumerian Stage and the Victory Records Stage.

Avenged Sevenfold headlined the show, along with Korn, Asking Alexandria, and Trivium on the Rockstar Main Stage. The other three stages hosted bands Cannibal Corpse, Body Count, Ill Nino, Mushroomhead, Miss May I, Suicide Silence, Emmure, Veil of Maya, Upon A Burning Body, Texas Hippie Coalition, King 810, Wretched, Islander, and Erimha.

There were many great up and coming metal bands on the bill this year, including our very own King 810 from Flint. But what fans couldn't stop talking about the return of the 90's trash metal band Body Count, featuring Ice-T on vocals. The band just released their 5th studio album last month entitled Manslaughter. What do you know, we spotted Ice-T and his bodyguard entourage, along with his curvaceous wife Coco walking their two Bulldogs around the venue before his set! Besides all the music, there were dozens of vendors selling Rock N Roll merchandise, and of course the Mayhem meet & greet tents, where fans could get autographs by their favorite artists.

Mushroomhead, Body Count, and Korn put on the most entertaining performances of the day. Of course Avenged Sevenfold stole the show, with their gigantic stage setup and pyro, it was an over the top, awesome set. This festival is a favorite among many and if you missed it, there is still a chance to catch a show.
