Trey Azagthoth of Morbid Angel
Maryland Death Fest

May 26th was a day of firsts for me at the tenth annual Maryland Deathfest. It was the first time I saw Confessor, Deviated Instinct and Haemorrhage. The first time I heard "new" material from death-doom godsWinter. The first time I saw Noothgrush with new live vocalist Dino Sommese (Ghoul, Dystopia, etc). And maybe most memorably, the first time I witnessed a man whip out his junk out on stage, piss in his cupped hand and wipe his face with it.

The latter first came care of Horna, who's lead singer Spellgoth performed the "urine baptism" at center stage (pictures below, NSFW?) and was one of several notable black metal-influenced performances (Archgoat, Tsjuder, Black Witchery) on that brutally hot Saturday. The moment wasn't noticed by many, but the foul stench of old blood and human fluids left a trail throughout the indoor stage.

My mid-afternoon arrival at Sonar meant that I sadly missed sets by Infernal Stronghold, Bloody Phoenix, and Looking for an Answer, and not-so-sadly missed October 31 (members Deceased) and Anvil (the former being eons better than the latter). The remainder of the sweltering hot day was largely a string of successes with stellar sets from crusty thrashers Hellbastard, UK's Dragged into Sunlight, deliciously obnoxious goregrind from Haemorrhage, death-doom pioneers Winter (who played unearthed songs at MDF), thrash from Morbid Saint and an impressive set from the reunited technical-doom crew Confessor.

Reunited crust-death metal crew Deviated Instinct wins for my favorite of the daytime performances (they played at close to the same time as The Devil's Blood), and though bassist David Vincent gave me a bit of a Nikki Sixx douche-chill during Morbid Angel's headlining set, the band's performance of the early classics absolutely murdered. Brujeria, the supercrew made up of members of Napalm Death, Carcass and more, were great headliners for the opposing outdoor stage but I opted for Noothgrush.

More pictures from day three at Maryland Deathfest are below. If you missed them, check out day one pictures HERE, a set of Rorschach's pictures HERE, and day two pictures HERE.

Sausages like woman that could beat the shit out of them, so as to pepper their homoerotic fantasies with gender bent S&M. Fucking huge mommy & daddy issues on display here, fellers.

I never peed in my cupped hand, and then washed my face with it before, but once back in 2009 I did rub hummus all over my hair to assist with my dreadlock creation.

they bring the St. Vitus men's room experience to you!

You know, stories/pix like this make it really difficult to defend the sausage concert experience. At least at a GG show you'd get a chance to fight him if he pulled this kind of shit. I love the music but haven't been to a show in a really long time, and I think I'll keep it that way.

And the winner for longest nails on a spiked gauntlet go to... Tsjuder for having 10 inch nails!! Also what is the singer of Horna doing in that picture??? Also to all the bands using real lambs or goats blood, becareful not to get any in your eyes or nose. This is how weird strains of goat Aids get spread.

Save your good trolly comments for later - it's lunch rush now, and those pizzas aren't going to deliver themselves

You sausages really don't like black people do you? Or maybe, black people don't like you. D'jevah thinka dat? All that big black cock you all are missing out on ... kinda makes that gerbil-ready anus of yours pucker up in anticipation, doesn't it? Oh, that's right .... "blood and shit covered anus ..." seems more suited for you hee hee

Why are you trendies so rabid and frothing at the mouth lately? What, is Atlas Sound going on hiatus or something?

12:27- nobody pays attention to them in real life, so they attempt to get it here. About as mature as sticking fingers in your ears and yelling. The idea that they call people at these showd immature is so staggeringly ironic it is laughable. As will be the obligatory "clever" responses to this message, no doubt.

Sausages - here's to you, because we all know that a few generations ago, your great great grandmothers totally fucked a black man, and reeeeeeally liked it

I used to live down the street from David Vincent in Tampa, he was always mowing his lawn wearing a fanny pack. He was always such a douche.

The schtick for Hemorrhage is a little too General Surgerish for their own good.

12:52: 12:27 here - couldn't agree more

Oh, Now I see what the singer of Horna is doing. He is performing a urine baptism. Of course.
