The 2013 Mayhem Festival made a stop in Hartford, Conn., over the weekend where metal heads came together to celebrate all different sub-genres of heavy music. The Musicians Institute Stage had one of the most eclectic line-ups of the bill.

Finnish metal came to the East Coast of the States as frontman Alexi Laiho and the rest of Children of Bodom headlined the stage. The New York natives of Emmure and Pennsylvania metalcore group Motionless in White got fans bouncing during their sets.

Chicago metal band Born of Osiris also graced the Musicians Institute Stage, as well as Attika 7, fronted by former Biohazard vocalist Evan Seinfeld, who kicked off the set by revving up his motorcycle onstage.
