Over the past five years, Kentucky based Louisville Deathfest has compiled solid lineups of both elder-statesman and up-and-comers in extreme metal, including Gorgasm, Rivers of Nihil, Nachtmystium, Enfold Darkness, Young and In the Way, Putrid Pile and Devourment. This year’s installment continues the festival’s strong tradition of composing great bills, as this year’s headliner will be Virginia eminent melodic tech death group Arsis, whom we featured here in our “Best of Tech Death” list. Head past the jump to see the rest of the lineup:
Artificial Brain (who are featured here in our “For Fans of Gorguts” list)
Enfold Darkness (whose newest single appears on The Brian Shields Tribute Album; link here)
Applaud the Impaler
End It With A Shotgun
There is certainly enough variety and quality here to inspire anyone in the Kentucky area to make the trek to this year’s fest. The event will be taking place at Diamond Pub & Billiards in Louisville on Saturday August 8th, and while advance tickets (available here) appear to be sold out, it is indicated that tickets may be available at the door.
