The long-haired, bearded, metal-loving masses will return to South Jersey this summer, and now we know which bands will evoke the mosh pits.

Rockstar Mayhem Festival 2014, the world’s largest touring heavy metal festival announced its lineup today, and as is the argument with most heavy music, passionate fans will likely either adore, or absolutely loathe this group of bands.

The big names this year include popular California headbangers such as Avenged Sevenfold, nu metal journeymen Korn and Asking Alexandria, a breakdown-heavy group from England.

Trivium, a well-established metalcore band from Florida will also take the main stage.

Last year’s main stage featured Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Mastodon and Amon Amarth, none of whom will return to the show this year.

Cannibal Corpse, Suicide Silence, Emmure and Body Count featuring Ice-T lead acts playing the smaller stages in the afternoon. 

The sweaty festival thrashes through the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden August 1.

North Jersey fans may find an easier time checking out the fest’s Scranton, Pa. stop on Aug. 2.

Tickets go on sale Friday (April 4).
