Think you got what it takes to spend four days on a ship with Lamb Of God, Machine Head and Anthrax? Then you’ll want to book passage on the first ever “Mayhem Festival Cruise” steaming out of Miami for the Bahamas in December.

Presented by the same folks who created the annual “Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival” tour, the Dec. 7-10 Mayhem Festival Cruise will also include performances by Suicide Silence, Hatebreed, Kingdom Of Sorrow and many more.

With your host Jose Mangin of Sirius XM Liquid Metal leading the way, the cruise aboard the Carnival Imagination will also feature showcase sets from Century Media, Metal Blade, Roadrunner and Sumerian with bands such as Gojira, Periphery, Born Of Osiris, Battlecross, Otherwise, Girl On Fire, Anti-Mortem and Gypsyhawk.

But wait, there’s still more, such as DJ sets by JDevil (Korn’s Jonathan Davis) and DJ Starscream (Sid of Slipknot).

Speaking of Slipknot, the band’s Clown will curate his own art show as well as host Fangoria’s Video Nasties Film Festival.

Other attractions include Mayhem Festival comedian Big Jay Oakerson and The Legions Of Skank featuring J. Gomez and Dave Smith.

You’ll also get a chance to meet Mayhem co-creators Kevin Lyman and John Reese via artists panels featuring road stories and music industry tips. Other attractions include a full casino featuring a three-night poker tournament where fans and artists play side-by-side.
