Word has been granted from the higher ups (ie, my girlfriend) that I now have the okay to start saving up and planning a trip to Baltimore next year for Maryland Deathfest. I had to sit out this year’s fest due to lack of funds and a job search, but 2014 is looking clear for takeoff. 2012’s fest was an amazing experience, and 2014 is looking like it might trump it, considering the latest additions to the lineup.
Just yesterday, the festival’s Facebook page unloaded thirty more names to expect from the event’s twelfth incarnation, as well as the long-awaited venue information. You can click through to the full announcement (featuring a full list of all of the announced bands so far) via the Facebook widget below:
Names that jump out to me as being incredibly exciting are Immolation, Incantation, Mitochondrion, and Torche. This is going to be an incredible Deathfest; Gorguts, Ulcerate, and Mitochondrion playing at the same show is a dream come true. Hopefully all the plans work out and a couple of us at Heavy Blog will be able to attend!
Mark your calenders for May 22nd – 25th, 2014. Tickets will go on sale this month and a full lineup is expected soon, so keep an eye out!
