My Thoughts On Kevin Lyman, Kerry King, Randy Blythe And The Mayhem Festival!

My Thoughts On Kevin Lyman, Kerry King, Randy Blythe And The Mayhem Festival!

Support: For the past few weeks we’ve all seen the articles posted about Kevin Lyman‘s statement on Mayhem Festival, the metal scene and more. Since then, we’ve heard Kerry King share his thoughts on the tour, and Randy Blythe even chimed in with his thoughts on the matter as well. While we at SkullsNBones pride ourselves of NOT being the TMZ of metal, I’ve been asked enough, online or in person, about this matter, so I’m going to share my thoughts with you all. This is from my perspective; a fan, just like all of you. I live and breathe this music, and this conversation needs to stop. Let’s start from the beginning… Earlier this month Kevin Lyman, cofounder of the Mayhem Festival, was quoted as saying this to the Detroit Free Press: “The bands at the top all demand a certain level of fee to be on tour. Unlike punk rock, metal never knows how to take a step back to move the whole scene forward. That’s how punk rock was. That’s how we nurtured punk rock. BAD RELIGION would take a little less than they could on their own to bring the whole scene forward, so we could make sure we had a good [touring] package around them. Metal doesn’t seem to have that concern, never has, never has since I was working in the clubs in the ’80s. It’s always about a ‘me, me, me’ thing. What happened was metal chased girls away because what happened was metal aged. Metal got gray, bald and fat. And metal was about danger. When you went to a metal...

Kerry King Performs “Evil” On Stage With King Diamond In New Jersey!

Support: The 2015 Mayhem Festival will be wrapping up in a few weeks, but the talk of the festival so far has been the performances by King Diamond and Slayer.

King Diamond To Begin Work On A New Record After The Mayhem Festival!

King Diamond To Begin Work On A New Record After The Mayhem Festival!

Support: The legendary King Diamond is currently putting on his magical show across the States on the 2015 Mayhem Festival, and it seems like there are big plans in store once this tour ends! After the success of his 2014 tour, and the love he’s received so far in 2015, he has revealed in a new interview that new material is coming our way! Here’s what the icon said: “We were planning our own tour for this autumn, and suddenly we got the offer of doing the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. And it kind of put a stop to the… ‘Cause my home studio is ready now to go, but this tour is very important to do. So we don’t wanna be rushed with writing a new album anyway. So we are gonna take our time, and it’s gonna be the best you’ve ever heard from us — there’s no doubt in my mind — ’cause we have all the tools at our fingertips this time. But it has put, you can say, the brakes on starting that process, so we’ll pick it up when Mayhem is done. But it’s always great to come off a tour and then start writing, ’cause you are very, very inspired. I am, certainly.” Wow! The King sounds confident, and just hearing him say “it’s gonna be the best you’ve ever heard from us” is beyond exciting! It almost makes me want the Mayhem Festival to end already so they can start on the new record, but it hasn’t come my way yet, so patience Mark. Patience! Stay tuned! Support: Have you...
