mdf XII

I’m dying to go to Maryland Deathfest again. My experience in 2012 was unforgettable. There was much moshing to bands I never thought I’d get to see (Negura Bunget and Ulcerate, to name a few) and spent a ridiculous amount of money on merch and music. I even sang karaoke with a few blogging pals and Justin Gosnell of Vestascension. Would definitely go again.

So far, the “pro” column in my internal debate to go to next year’s MDF is growing and slowly overtaking the “con” section. The only thing stopping me is the lack of funds, but I’m just about to bite the bullet and book tickets, airfare, and hotel. The lineup is being revealed piece by piece, and so far, it’s looking fantastic!

Since we’ve updated you last, the fest has announced 14 new names. Here’s the full lineup announced so far, with the newly added names highlighted with asterisks.
