Corey Bayless over at Citizen Image got deep in the pit at the opening day of the Mayhem festival. Read about Slipknot, Airbourne, and DragonForce. (UPDATE: Seems to have fixed some of his factual errors.)

Speaking of DragonForce, reports on the band opening a set on the festival in California with a certain video game theme song. Find out that DragonForce opener and tell The Tanooki if the band's ever played their own songs on Guitar Hero.
