Affliction has also announced that death metal band Megadeath will perform throughout their show “Affliction: Banned” on July 19th. It is unknown in what capacity they will perform, but one would guess that they would do songs between fights. Megadeath has been hugly popular throughout the years and has sold over 20 millions cds. While it was rumored that Ozzy Osbourne would perform, Megadeath is not a huge surprise considering that they are already involved with Affliction’s popular clothing lines.
