Some of the biggest names inheavy metal stormed intoScranton Saturday as the Rock-star Energy Drink MayhemFestival rocked the Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountainall day long.For more than nine hours,Anthrax, Motorhead, Slayer,and Slipknot – and a wholehost of up-and-coming bands –pummeled the raucous concert-goers at the next-to-last stop onthe fifth annual concert tour. The tour, which kicked off inlate June, finishes up today inHartford, Conn. The afternoon portion of theprogram took place on a small-er stage in the amphitheater’sparking lot as bands such asBleeding Ink, I The Breather, White Chapel and The Devil Wears Prada warmed up thecrowd in the early going.As I Lay Dying, a metalcoregroup from San Diego, took thesatellite stage at about 4:30 andtreated the audience to a newtune or two from its forth-coming album “Awakened,” which will be released on Sept.25.Early highlights of the band’shalf-hour set included 2003’s“94 Hours” and 2011’s “Ano-dyne Sea.” The band then fin-ished strongly with “ThroughStruggle,” “Nothing Left” and“The Sound of Truth.”Anthrax, one-fourth of met-al’s fabled “Big Four,” headlinedthe smaller stage with a blister-ing 45-minute set highlightedby one of its most recent songsand two of its classic warhors-es. The quintet from New YorkCity came out strong and fea-tured “Fight ‘Em ‘Til YouCan’t” from its latest album“Worship Music” (2011) early inits set. Then it was on to a menacing “Indians” – which guitaristScott Ian stopped at one pointto encourage the crowd tomosh harder – and a trium-phant “I Am The Law,” whichclosed out the afternoon por-tion of the festival in fine form.Asking Alexandria, a metal-core band from Great Britain, was the first up on the mainstage, playing for 30 minutesbefore giving way to fellowBrits Motorhead.Fronted as always by the oneand only Lemmy Kilmister,Motorhead, a heavy metal bandgoing strong since1975, un-leashed a lot of fury for a bandconsisting of only one guitar,bass and drums.“Here’s the usual,” Lemmy said after the second song. “If you want us to play even louderthan we just did, throw both your arms up in the air.”As the crowd thrust its armsinto the air in unison, the trioof Kilmister, guitarist PhilCampbell and drummer Mik-key Dee, launched into a hard-rocking number from its latestalbum before treating its long-time fans to a pummeling “Stay Clean.” The trio finished up with a fabulous “Ace of Spades,” a song that no doubt was writtenbefore many in attendance were born (it goes back to1980), but it brought the crowdto its feet all the same.
