Agalloch at Music Hall of Williamsburg, 2012 (more by Wyatt Marshall)

Fans were justifiably bummed when early Norwegian black metal greats turned experimentalists Ulver dropped off the Maryland Death Fest bill (May 22-25) due to health concerns. The loss left a notable gap on the Friday, May 23 Edison Lot lineup that featured the likes of heavy hitters like At the Gates and Taake. The MDF organizers took it in stride, though, and replaced Ulver with none other than the fantastic American atmospheric black metal band Agalloch.

Agalloch performed at Maryland Death Fest for the first time in 2012. The band's second appearance this spring will come right on the heels of the release of the band's fifth album, The Serpent & The Sphere, due out May 13 via Profound Lore. This will be the first chance to catch Agalloch (presumably) play the new material live on the east coast, so, Agalloch fans, rejoice.

In other MDF lineup news, Dallas grind band Kill the Client will take the place of In Disgust, who recently split up.

A couple of Agalloch song streams lie after the jump...

Ulver really cancelled because they didn't want to be seen in the country where the 5 questions of lameness were invented

It's really the perfect solution. The sausage community should leave NYC and reestablish itself in Baltimore. Hey fellas, check it out:

I'm really not sure Ulver can even be called a metal band anymore. Is Agalloch doing a regular tour soon? Its been a few years.

Baltimore is about 65% black, 10% hipster, and 25% WHITE TRASH.

I'm sure these retards feel at home there.

You even wonder what became of those kids that used to hang out at the train tracks and huff glue? Well, they moved to Baltimore and go to metal shows.

Metal dudes really ought to move to Baltimore. It's a win/win. Baltimore gets some white people, and the metal dudes will get cheap rent, thus giving them more time to worship Thor or whatever those butt boys are about.
