Maryland Deathfest XII Bill Already Shaping Up to Be Killer, Surprising No One

  • Axl Rosenberg

It’s never too early to start planning your annual festival! And so the organizers of Maryland Deathfest have already begun to book, and announce, bands for the 2014 edition of the fest. Unsurprisingly, given MDF’s well-earned reputations as one of the foremost metal festivals not just in the country but in the whole wide world, the bill is already boss. Participating bands including the perpetually reunited At the Gates, the always-spectacular Gorguts, everyone’s favorite black metal banjo players in Taake, and Mgła, whose name I enjoy typing for reasons I don’t entirely understand:

MDF XII Bands So Far

Carpathian Forest are apparently also very close to being confirmed.

In related news, Dino Cazares would really appreciate it if you stopped asking him if he’s going to be playing with Excruciating Terror:

I don’t think they are using his name to promote the band — there’s no mention of Dino on the band’s Facebook page or the MDF website. That being said, I did hear a rumor that the Governor of Maryland has personally placed a call to Dino to beg for him to come and help with the state’s overpopulation problem by eating as many babies in the maternity ward of John Hopkins as possible, so maybe that’s what he’s referring to.
