Picture Show: The Fans, The Bands at Rockstar Mayhem Festival

Fuckin' Slayer!

No, we don't mean that. We're actually referring to this perfect photo from last year's Iron Maiden show at Gexa Energy Pavilion. Over the last year, we've collected a number of great fan photos from concerts around Dallas, but few fans display their rock horns in photos as aggressively as the fans of hard rock and death metal.

Yesterday at Gexa was no different: Disturbed, Megadeth and Godsmack led the music-of-the-devil fest that is the Rockstar Mayhem Festival. Photographer Mike Mezeul was in the crowd, and he's brought back an incredible collection of band shots along with some of the most rock-horned fans you'll see for a while.
