Maryland Deathfest is the largest extreme metal shows in America, and I was lucky enough to attend earlier this year. With the recent news that the Sonar venue, longtime home of MDF, was recently closed, it lead some to wonder if Maryland Deathfest was going to return for its eleventh iteration. The folks behind MDF were quick to confirm plans were already in place for next year, moving the fest to a new venue.
This week, the initial lineup for MDF XI was announced via Facebook, with the following bands confirmed:
VENOM (UK) – Exclusive US headlining show.
CARCASS (UK) – Exclusive US show.
RIGHTEOUS PIGS – Exclusive US reunion show.
ANTAEUS (France) – Exclusive US show.
CONVULSE (Finland) – Exclusive US show.
AOSOTH (France) – Exclusive US show.
!TOOH! (Czech Republic) – Exclusive US show.
AHUMADO GRANUJO (Czech Republic)
INGROWING (Czech Republic)
The lineup looks awesome, and surely we can all breathe a sigh of relief that the festival carries on and continues to grow. More bands and a new venue announcement are expected to be made in the coming weeks!
