king Diamond on mayhem fest?
« on: March 16, 2015, 09:06:32 pm »
So I read on one of the metal sites just now that king is rumored to be on this years mayhem fest with slayer and some other bands I don't care about much. Any confirmation to this anywhere? I was going to post the article but my kindle is acting up on me and the site keeps crashing.

I seen that article yesterday too and as much as I want him to come back I hope he doesn't do that festival. half the people that would go to that festival dont know king and don't care and when that happens they are distracting the people who want to see king.

Why so negative brah? These could be possible King converts!  :king:

I saw this first on Facebook along with a lot of other stuff.
I'm guessing details loose ends are still tied up, deals hammered out before it's going to be ,made official dark powers that be. This should be very interesting.  \m/

Well that would mean a new album was finished by then, wouldn't it?

A new album should be #1 priority all across the board and no one seems to care. I just read an interview with his drummer and the interviewer didn't even ask about it. Incredibly aggravating. It's been 2 years since the MetalBlade deal and all we hear about is how great the home studio is.

New album >>>>>>>>>>>>>> any tours on any continent

 I too saw a few reports today & that poster above , looks like slayer headlining with king right before with a full set !!
   This is great as KING can bring out the full stage set & get the band in front of bigger crowds , no way you can not be a Metal fan & realize how great this band is when you see them ....
 
  If it gets a bigger crowd & finally breaks king in the states for bigger shows , i'm all for it !  :cool:

I sure hope they come up in my area if its true. Be the perfect lineup if Venom was on it, but two out of three of my top three aren't too bad.

Yeh , i would just go & see the last two bands for a bill like that , i Certainly wish they could get one more killer metal band on right before King .

I'd much rather King Diamond take their time to write and record a masterpiece instead of rushing the release of a mediocre album. A tour would be a great way for the band to bounce ideas off of each other and maybe even rehearse....or ::gasp:: perform new songs! Think of all the energy that they will have to feed off of each other and the fans, must be much better than doing that sort of thing with half of the band being on the other side of the Atlantic. How many great albums have come about from bands formulating ideas at live shows?  \m/

One thing THEY would not need to work (much) on would be the DVD compilations, everything has already been filmed and is ready for consumption by us starved and demanding fans.  :D  \m/  :king:

And the tragic nature of all of this is that a DVD movie of Bolivarmaxi's life story, complete with major studio financing and state of the art CGI may come out well before the KD/MF compillation DVDs.  :(

And let us not forget the OTHER "elephant in the room", this possible tour. Now I've heard some rumors that it's only for Europe and that there might only be one show for KD? Seems odd if that were the case since so many of the bands on that poster appear to be from the USA.

What? Mayhem fest has always been a US tour.
We usually get a few, if not most of the bands at Heavy MTL in august. But since the date is not part of the Mayhem tour, there's no guarantee on who'll be there. Since KD was here 5 months ago, I doubt it for Montreal.

I've heard from a couple sources that Slayer/King Diamond on Mayhem is a done deal.  I hope this is true!!

Frankly, I hate the lineup. Will I go to see King Diamond, hell yes, will I probably leave after KD, most likely. I've never really been a Slayer fan and the bottom of the lineup isn't exciting me either. However it is a chance to see King, so I will be there if this ends up true.
