Not really, but it will never set sail. And it’s not because of Randy Blythe, he is a free man if you haven’t heard yet. In the tradition of the “70,000 Tons Of Metal” cruise, Mayhem Festival was supposed to launch a similar 3 day heavy voyage. It was going to feature Lamb of God, Machine Head, Anthrax, Hatebreed, Suicide Silence, and Kingdom of Sorrow. But due to circumstances beyond Rockstar’s control, it has been canceled. But there is some good news to go with the bad. If you purchased tickets to the ruined metal vacation, you will receive a LIFETIME pass to Mayhem fest.

Rockstar released this statement: “Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, we have been forced to cancel the Mayhem Festival Cruise,” said the organizers. Anyone who purchased a tour package will be refunded. The powers-that-be are also offering anyone who bought a cruise ticket a lifetime complimentary pass to the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival summer tour, in addition to the refund. This pass will be valid on any tour date beginning in 2013. Details on the receipt of lifetime passes will be announced shortly.”
