Mayhem Fest 2013 – Amon Amarth, Behemoth, Battlecross & Job For A Cowboy Added

The summer metal festivals are gearing up and releasing news about their lineups, and they keep adding to them. So far, Hellfest 2013 looks like an amazing place to be, and the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Fest, 2013, is proving to be no slouch either. Most recently, Mayhem 2013 added Amon Amarth, Behemoth, Battlecross, and Job for a Cowboy to what’s already a stellar lineup:

Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Mastadon, Machine Head, Butcher Babies, Huntress, Children of Bodom, Emmure, Born of Osiris, Motionless in White, Thrown into Exile, City in the Sea, and more to come.

Amon Amarth will be touring in support of their upcoming new album, which will be their ninth studio release. The album title, art, deluxe pre-order bundles, and new music will be revealed within the next few weeks. Guitarist Olavi Mikkonen comments:

“Amon Amarth is excited to be part of this summer’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. We can’t think of a better way to spend the summer than raging and pillaging across North America in real Viking style!”

Battlecross are currently at Audiohammer Studios with producer Mark Lewis to record their sophomore album. New music, art, and other new album info will be unveiled over the next few months, leading up to the festival.


In addition to the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Fest, Battlecross had previously confirmed their appearance at this year’s Orion Music & More Festival in their hometown of Detroit, Michigan.

Job for a Cowboy. Currently, the band is in Europe headlining Bonecrusher Fest with Beneath the Massacre, War From A Harlots Mouth, and more. Following Europe, they will join Hatebreed and Every Time I Die for an April tour that culminates with a performance at the 15th annual New England Metal and Hardcore Festival.
