Sacramentum reunite to play Deathfests + more MDF additions
Dismember isn’t the only veteran Swedish metal band reuniting this year for Deathfests. Sacramentum, whose 1996 debut album Far Away From The Sun helped shape melodic black metal in the ’90s, are doing it too. They revealed last week that they’re making an exclusive EU appearance at Netherlands Deathfest 2020, and today they were added to the lineup for US festival Maryland Deathfest 2020 (both of which Dismember are on too). At both fests, they’ll play Far Away From The Sun in its entirety.
Sacramentum are part of the latest round of bands announced for MDF, which also includes Schirenc Plays Pungent Stench, Suffocation, Archgoat, Haemorrhage, Valkyrja, ACxDC, Panzerfaust, and Asthma Castle.
The newly-added bands join such previously announced names as Vio-lence, Monstrosity, Onslaught, Demilich, Nocturnus AD, Acid Witch, Cancer, Dark Fortress, Massacre, Cadaver, Impaled, Nunslaughter, Novembers Doom, Graveyard, and more.
Tickets are on sale now. Updated lineup, along with a stream of Far Away From The Sun (which was recently added to Bandcamp), below.
