HATEBREED, CROWBAR, WHITECHAPEL, PRONG, KYNG and ONI have been added to the music lineup for the first annual Metal Maya, a 4-day all-inclusive heavy metal destination festival vacation from October 29 - November 2 at the luxurious Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun, just south of Cancun in the paradise of Puerto Morelos on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. In addition, LAMB OF GOD’s Chris Adler joins Metal Maya as an event host.

The overall Metal Maya music lineup is as follows: Anthrax, Hatebreed, Overkill, Superjoint (with Philip Anselmo), heavy metal all-star band Metal Allegiance, Death Angel, Whitechapel, Crowbar, Prong, KYNG, Otep, Tim “Ripper” Owens, and ONI.

Alex Skolnick (Testament) and Kyle Sanders (Hellyeah) have been added to the METAL ALLEGIANCE band lineup, which already includes Phil Demmel (Machine Head), David Ellefson (Megadeth), Gary Holt (Slayer/Exodus), Mark Menghi, Mark Osegueda (Death Angel), Mike Portnoy (The Winery Dogs, Transatlantic, Flying Colors, The Neal Morse Band), Steve “Zetro” Souza (Exodus), Ryan Waste (Municipal Waste), and more special guests. Metal Maya will be hosted by SiriusXM’s own Jose Mangin.

HATEBREED’s Jamey Jasta says, “We’re honored to have been invited to play at the inaugural Metal Maya in Cancun this October. We plan on losing our minds for a few days in Mexico, and we’d love for you to join us…and to top it all off…free booze!”

KYNG is honored to be a part of this festival, and share the stage with all of the gut-wrenching bands that have inspired us to play heavy music,” says KYNG singer/guitarist Eddie Veliz. “To top it off, this will happen in our motherland! Can't wait for Metal Maya!”

Metal Maya is the perfect place to celebrate Halloween--complete with bands trick or treating at your door--and Dia de los Muertos (Day Of The Dead), and will feature performances from over a dozen bands in a tropical paradise. Host Philip H. Anselmo will curate select cuts from his personal collection for a special Halloween Horror Movie night to drive a stake through the heart of Halloween!

Metal Maya packages start at only $1399 per person and are on sale now at www.MetalMaya.com.

Metal Maya will also offer once-in-a-lifetime scenic excursions hosted by Metal Maya artists to complement your daily rock and relaxation schedule. From touring the scenic ancient caves of Rio Secreto, to jungle bound adventures and world-class snorkeling and fishing sites, the Riviera Maya is rich with the region’s Mayan spirit and adventurous tropical surroundings. To add a little “Metal to the Maya”, Metal Maya will provide guest hosts to accompany attendees on the excursions. Metal Maya excursions include ATV Riding with METAL ALLEGIANCE at Emotions Native Park, Deep Sea Fishing with DEATH ANGEL, and the Rio Secreto tour with KYNG, OTEP and Jose Mangin.
