Defeated Sanity at the Silent Barn, 2011 (more by Samantha Marble)

New York City is developing a solid crop of small underground metal festivals. Martyrdoom is heading into its third year, and New York Death Fest has just announced that it'll return for a second installment. This year's edition will take place at Saint Vitus Bar on July 26, and it'll be an all-day affair -- the Facebook invite suggests that it'll run from 2pm until midnight and that 20(!!!) bands will play during that span. Better hope that all those death metal drummers practice breaking down their 15-piece kits quickly.

Most of the ten bands announced so far are regional concerns, but there are a couple really notable acts slated -- chiefly German tech-death monsters Defeated Sanity, who are one of the most compositionally zany bands in the genre and one of the only death metal bands ever to feature a father-son musician team. (Wolfgang Teske, father drummer Lille Gruber, played guitar in the band for 14 years before dying of cancer in 2008.) Also of note are Spain's long-running Gruesome Stuff Relish and California's excellent Portal-esque grinders Plague Widow, who are putting in their first NYC appearance.

Tickets aren't on sale for the fest yet, but keep an eye out. We'll keep you posted regarding lineup updates, too. For the time being, check out the full lineup and some head-spinning footage of Defeated Sanity's last NYC appearance in 2011 below...

Don't know if it's been changed since, but it actually seems to be a two day event, July 26th & 27th, each day running 2 to midnight.

4:30 doesn't realize that if you make that comment, the same conclusion applies.

Hey you fuckers, i ain't fucking dead. I've been taking a break of all the islam stuff to watch My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.


Oh yes, death metal is fucking gay!

I'm glad Douchebag Darrel is dead! That overrated redneck was a worthless bag of shit. No wonder he played with the rest of those faggots in Pantera!

Right before Dimebag was killed, he had a huge fight with the lead singer of Damage Plan. Dime and Vinny were forcing him to sing old Pantera songs for their set, which he thought was degrading.

Shows you what type of person he was. Not a hero.

I met Dimebag years ago after a Damageplan show. He was just slightly over 5 feet tall, just this little hairy dude with a pink beard. Nicest guy you could hope to meet.

You idiots talking shit over the internet about Dimebag would never talk like that to anyones face. Go ahead and hide behind your keyboards you little rodents. Eventually you will get yours.

8:56 & 6:44 - The real world is going to bite you in the ass some day. Dime was a straight shooter. The real deal. A real man.

8:56 Having fun playing around on your parents' internet you little prep school shit? It's school night.

If Dimebag Darrel died from a drug overdose no one would give a fuck. Just another rock dead from drugs. But since he got shot and killed that's a whole different story.
