Mayhem for Valdur!
Mammoth’s own black metal band, Valdur, was invited to be the opening act on the Jägermeister stage at the 2011 Rockstar Energy Drinks “MAYHEM FESTIVAL” on July 10 in Mountain View, Calif., near San Jose.
“We are the opening band, so Valdur’s not listed on the web site, but we’re the only black metal band on the tour as far as I can see, so hopefully we’ll make some new fans,” Valdur guitarist Thor Ryen told The Sheet. The band is also made up of Matthew Schott on drums and William Ganley on bass.
The festival includes headliner Megadeath. For info on Mayhem Festival, visit http://rockstarmayhemfest.com/
