Summer is here, and that means music festival season. One such festival that I am looking forward to attending in the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Fest. Mayhem will be rolling through Atlanta in August and I will be prepared for the heat of the sun and the heat coming off of the stages. One of the bands I’m most looking forward to seeing is a band from Portland, Oregon called, Red Fang.

Philip Anselmo is best know as a front man for the bands Pantera, Down and Superjoint Ritual.

The Arson Anthem tour is also showcasing the talents of the bands Harp and Warbeast. All bands on the tour are on the label started by Anselmo, Housecore Records.

I chat almost daily with my friend and rock aficionado Don creator of, The Great Southern Brainfart blog. He and I met while shooting at a concert in the summer and in a recent conversation he asked if I was going to cover Crowbar.

While he was still listing Crowbar’s attributes, I managed to find and listen to them (thank you technology). Within minutes, I knew that Don was a genius and I wanted to cover them. (more…)
