In a story Ghost Cult broke several months ago, Mayhem Fest co-founders Kevin Lyman and John Reece had been in talks about bringing the fest back and confirmed by Lyman on social media. However, now due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic outbreak, those plans are on hold until 2021. No further details had been shared yet about a new version of Mayhem Fest, but the rumor of the Megadeth/Lamb of God Tour being the headliners was debunked by Lyman and the bands. Reece even polled his fans to see if they wanted it back AFTER our news story broke. The final Mayhemfest wrapped in 2015 with Slayer and King Diamond co-headlining. Lyman’s Warped Tour celebrated 25 years last summer with a final few all-day festival dates, but not a cross country tour. Reece and Lyman were also responsible for The Uproar Festival Tour and A Taste of Chaos Tour as well. Perhaps Mayhem Festival will return as an all-dayer or an all-weekend destination fest like Lollapalooza did. The traveling summer-time metal festival was the metal answer to Warped Tour, also co-founded by Kevin Lyman and John Reece and saw Slipknot, Slayer, System of a Down, King Diamond, Five Finger Death Punch, Amon Amarth, Mastodon were among the many headliners over the years.

Los Angeles band Devereaux is the solo project from Paul Wiley (Marilyn Manson, Razor Candy) and are dropping a new EP, This Isn’t Going To End Well, due out on June 2nd via Sensory Recordings. The new single drops tomorrow, ‘I Want To Spend The End Times With You’, features Krsy Fox (Knee High Fox) on vocals, and is the perfect song for the pandemic/corona-apocalypse. The single and video will be available to stream publicly on Wednesday, April 29th via Sensory Recordings and all major streaming platforms. The main riff on the track is particularly evil sounding, juxtaposed against Paul and Krsy Fox’s hypnotic vocals, and cleverly layered guitars. The new EP is the follow up to Deveraux’s debut EP – Songs In The Key Of Death, released in 2017. The DIY video was shot by everyone individually during the quarantine, at their respective homes in Los Angeles, Vancouver, and Chicago. The video features vocalist Krsy Fox, who also directed and edited the video, drummer Ryan “Junior” Kittlitz (All Hail The Yeti) and guitarist Carella Ross. Watch the clip right now!

I like to think I am a tough nut to crack, an enigma, if you will, shrouded in a mystical cloud of mystery. My editor proved to me that when it comes to my musical tastes he has me all figured out. Case in point, the new self-titled EP by Razor Candy (Sensory Recordings). My editor said I would really dig the newly released profoundly immoral brainchild of Paul Wiley (Marilyn Manson, Deveraux) and Chad Cherry (The Last Vegas, The Claws) and he was not wrong. I may be a self-described metalhead, but I am also a self-described lover of musical ingenuity and raw talent, which Razor Candy not only possesses but showcases in an eloquently macabre way. The EP contains five tracks that are available in all streaming formats, but for you vinyl loving freaks (myself included) there is a bonus track included only on vinyl, how fanfreakingtastical is that?
