Maryland Deathfest updates 2014 lineup; free shows taking place at Sidebar w/ Yautja, Bastard Sapling & more

Ashencult at Saint Vitus, 2013 (more by Fred Pessaro)

Time is ticking down before Maryland Deathfest 2014, but as ever in the music world, festival lineups are subject to change until the bands actually hit the stage. The festival issued a pretty substantial lineup and logistics update yesterday (4/20) that nixed a few previously announced bands while adding a bunch more.

Let’s do the bad news first:

The following bands on Friday at Soundstage have cancelled: ROTTING OUT (due to surgeries that a band member must undergo), ANTISECT (due to a family matter that a band member must be present for), and ENDORPHINS LOST (van broke down and they can’t tour now)….

Also, on a recent visit to the US embassy, ORATOR was told that they cannot come to the US next month, so they will not be playing on Saturday at the Edison Lot. The band is confident that they’ll be able to come here next year, and if so, we will book them then. We will be giving most bands playing on Saturday at the Edison Lot a longer set time and NOT announcing a replacement.

The three Soundstage cancellations have been replaced by Impaled, Pneumatic Slaughter, & ACxDC (who have a new album on the way).

The festival has also announced the lineup for free shows at the nearby Sidebar (218 E. Lexington Street) on every night of the festival, with doors opening for each show at 8pm and bands starting at 9. This means that there are basically 20 more bands on the MDF lineup. Some notable names include Bastard Sapling, Skelptarsis, Ashencult, Old Lines & Yautja (THEY ARE EVERYWHERE). This is all on top of the fest itself and the Misery Index / Immolation / Black Breath / Noisem preshow on Wednesday the 21st. So yeah, you’ll have no shortage of metal show options in Baltimore that week.
