Citizens Arrest
Maryland Death Fest

After a three days of mayhem (pictures from day 1 HERE, day 2 HERE, and day 3 HERE) featuring sets from Neurosis, Doom, Lack of Interest, Voivod, Extortion, Aura Noir, and tons of notable others, Maryland Deathfest came to a close on Sunday with another full of performances capped by a headlining outdoor set from the reactivated Coroner, their first US appearance in 20 years.

Later that night, the true close to MDF was led by Ghost, whose set was tight and fun visually, but did not impress me as much as the hype suggests (decide for yourself on June 1st at the Studio). The remainder of my day was filled with pretty much every other band on the bill, except for Visceral Disgorge and Doubled Over who I missed in favor of much needed meals. My favorites of the day go to the foul death metallers Dead Congregation and Repugnant, the always awesome Citizens Arrest (who play Europa with another MDF alum, Tragedy, tonight), the energetic Skinless and the over the top goregrind of Last Days of Humanity.

god damn these are some crazy dudes..

Posted by instrumentals | May 31, 2011 9:38 PM

I always think about where they bought their pants. Close your eyes and think about it. Picture them shopping for pants

i am gonna get me a sausage tattoo

I haven't listened to them yet, but does ghost (visually) remind anybody of another band that played mdf last year?

Bastard Noise would have been worth seeing in this sloppy soup mix of bands.

Nightbringer seems like a fraggle rock death metal cradle of makeup.

PLEASE NEXT TIME I HOPE TO SEE THE MIGHT GERMAN BAND TRIGGER AT MDF!! TRIGGER IS A GREAT BAND!! AND UFET (ENRICO)IS GOD!! TRIGGER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by UFET | June 1, 2011 3:36 AM

Does this mean BV is going to cover the Gathering of the Juggalos this year?

Posted by elvis potato salad | June 1, 2011 9:47 AM

Trying to figure out which would be worse, sitting through four days of Deathfest, or living in Maryland. Thoughts?

Posted by bros for palin | June 1, 2011 9:59 AM

Army surplus, Charlie. That's where I see easily half of them buying pants.

2:13, you're probably thinking of Portal. Visually similar, but sonically polar opposites.

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2011 10:45 AM

@10:45 im sure theyre not that different. They both scream a lot dont they?

"I always think about where they bought their pants. Close your eyes and think about it. Picture them shopping for pants"

Interesting, but probably less depressing (or funny, depending on your mood) than thinking of you shopping for your Old Navy chinos.

Old Navy sells affordable, good-quality apparel and I am proud to shop there. Some of us need chinos because we actually have to get dressed for work.

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2011 11:10 AM

dunno what part of "getting dressed for work" involves tryhard comments on a blog whose comments section no one cares about.

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2011 12:23 PM

the metal dorks' tears are going to make their mascara run...

Why even pretend this has anything to do w/ music? This is obviously a cult...

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2011 12:48 PM

Haha, 11:02 is right.

Posted by Anonymous | June 1, 2011 1:15 PM

@ 10:57, actually no. ghost doesn't scream at all, ever. very restrained vocals. the dude who said they look like portal but are polar opposites sonically was right on target.

Posted by laurie | June 1, 2011 1:29 PM

Trigger are much better than all those boring bands who played at MDF!!
