The Musicians Institute Stage at the 2013 Mayhem Festival kickoff in San Bernardino, Calif. was as scorching as the 100-plus degree heat all day long. Fans gathered around to catch a mixture of veteran bands and younger metal rockers, including Children of Bodom, Emmure, Born of Osiris, Motionless in White, Attika 7 and Thrown Into Exile.
Want to feel like you are at an Emmure show without ever leaving the comfort of your home? Well, take a few minutes and watch this hybrid of a live performance and lyric video for 'Drug Dealer Friend' and you'll experience a similar effect.
Contemporary extreme metal band Emmure have recruited ex-Bury Your Dead member Mark Costillo to fill the band's vacant drummer slot. The stickman is making his studio debut with the band on their as-yet-untitled fifth album, which producer Joey Sturgis is currently tracking.
