Maryland Deathfest

Okay, this shit is just getting ridiculous. Maryland Deathfest just announced their fourth round of bands, and there are some doozies. Here are the new additions:

CANCER (UK) - Exclusive US show and first time in the US since 1993.

SACRIFICE (Canada) - Exclusive US show and first time in the US since 1992.

NOCTURNUS A.D. - Playing "The Key" album in its entirety.

CROWBAR

DEATH TOLL 80K (Finland)

For those unfamiliar with "Nocturnus A.D.", Nocturnus was one of the first death metal bands to use keyboards; their debut LP, The Key, was a minor death metal classic and quite a controversial album when it came out in 1990. Drummer/vocalist Mike Browning (also a former early-days member of Morbid Angel) has been trolling the MDF Facebook page for the past few weeks and repeatedly offering to play the festival, and the organizers apparently caved. So basically, this is a godsend for death metal nerds.

Stream some Nocturnus and Cancer below; check out the MDF lineup to date while you listen.

Deathfest and book the Melvins is misnomer obviously.

Worst part is this tour takes away proper shows from the area for bands. T

he DC/Maryland area isn't getting a full headliner set from Godflesh on their fall tour because they already played Deathfest last year. Makes sense?

No way. Cynic and Atheist beat them out for sure. Nocturnus is still fantastic, though.
