Maryland Deathfest update (schedule, cancellations/replacements) ++ related NYC shows

MDF 2015
Bloodbath at MDF 2015 (more by Levan TK)

The biggest US metal fest of the year Maryland Deathfest is fast approaching. Going down May 26-29, there are still a small number of tickets available for some of the days.

There have been some changes since we last spoke, which generally fall into the category of bands having to cancel due to visa issues and being replaced. We mentioned that Destroyer 666 had to cancel, and they are joined by Serpent Throne (work obligations) and World Burns to Death (broke up) in not being able to make it. Those three bands have been replaced by Incantation and Shed the Skin. More recently, Japanese group Infernal Revulsion are unable to make it, so they’ve been replaced by Malignancy. Svartidaudi are also having border problems, so they’re being replaced by fellow Icelanders Zhrine.

The other big news is the schedule, which has been released. The organizers are pretty good at minimizing conflicts, but there are still dilemmas like Mayhem vs. Magrudergrind, Testament vs. Infest vs. Grave Miasma, and Ringworm vs. Satan (oof). As you know by now, its an incredibly stacked lineup. Check out the full schedule below.

And in vaguely related news, there are a few upcoming NYC metal shows that we haven’t gotten a chance to mention yet. Mitochondrion, who are also playing MDF, will be in NYC the weekend before, playing Saint Vitus on May 21 with great support from Auroch, Artificial Brain and Phobocosm. Tickets for that are on sale now.

New Orleans sludge outfit Classhole, which features a member of Eyehategod, play The Acheron on June 27 with Hard Charger and Eternal Black. Tickets for that are on sale now.

The Acheron always has a busy slate. In addition to the above, MDF weekend will feature a hardcore workout from CHUD, Filth Hound, WAD and Sickhead on May 29 (tickets). The following weekend will take a turn for the psychedelic with a bill of Slow Season, Sun Voyager, Stuteyedeyed and Mammoth Spirit on June 5 (tickets). And then California doom outfit CHRCH will stop in on July 21 with support from Fister and Kosmodemonic (tickets).

Meanwhile, in even less-related but still-metal news, polished/technical bands Devin Townsend Project and Between the Buried and Me announced a co-headlining tour with support from Fallujah. It hits NYC for a show at Playstation Theater on September 16, and tickets for that go on sale Friday (5/20) at noon. All dates are listed below.

Check out music from some of the bands playing those NYC shows, along with the full MDF schedule and all of those Devin Townsend/BTBAM dates, below,
