GOLLUM: One-Off Mayhem Performance Recap

Wilmington, North Carolina metal squadron GOLLUM played the Jagermeister stage on the August 3rd stop of the this year’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. Featuring over a dozen big name acts including Korn, Lamb Of God, In This Moment, 3 Inches Of Blood, Hatebreed and Shadows Fall, this marked the second year in a row GOLLUM secured a spot on the billing for the prestigious event.

Said guitarist Frank Stroehmer: “Playing Mayhem Fest 2010 was an honor! It was hotter than hell but with a crowd like that and the response we had, we would play in extreme heat any day! It feels good to be received so well among such heavy hitters! Thanks again to Jagermeister for the opportunity!”

GOLLUM are in the process of booking a fall tour in support of their critically-acclaimed The Core full-length released via Rotten Records In May of 2009. For confirmed dates thus far, visit: http://www.myspace.com/gollum.

“The Core is one of the most complex, sonic-scraped albums of the year because you literally have no idea where these guys are coming from, much less where they’re wading towards through their distorted furrows…” –
