Maryland Deathfest 2016: First Thirty Bands Announced

  • Axl Rosenberg

One of many reasons to love Maryland Deathfest: they do not fuck around with the line-up. By which I mean, not only do they put together a great bill, but they start booking bands a year in advance, and then start announcing bands pretty much as soon as the current year’s fest has concluded.

Although they’re clearly saving the heaviest of heavy hitters for a later announcement (there are FIFTY additional acts on the bill), there are still a ton of awesome bands already here, making this basically the metal fest equivalent of one of those summer blockbuster teases that gets released a year before the movie even comes out.
