Organizers Cancel 2012 Mayhem Cruise Set to Feature Lamb of God, Machine Head + Anthrax
Unfortunately, however, the voyage has been canceled before things got out of dock. The event was set to leave the Port of Miami on Dec. 7, with the primary stop being in the Bahamas before returning to mainland on Dec. 10.
As for the talent, organizers had lined up Lamb of God, Machine Head, Anthrax, Hatebreed, Suicide Silence, and Kingdom of Sorrow, with each band receiving 90-minute sets, while Gojira, Periphery, Born of Osiris, Battlecross, Otherwise, Girl on Fire, Anti Mortem, and Gypsyhawk were some of the other talent set to play. Plus, JDevil (aka Korn's Jonathan Davis) and DJ Starscream (aka Slipknot's Sid Wilson) were on board to play full DJ sets.
Mayhem Festival Cruise organizers issued a statement on the official website about the cancellation, which read:
