Maryland Deathfest announced its (almost) final lineup of bands this afternoon. At this point, the festival really didn't need to add much to sell out its allotment of tickets, but there are some heavy hitters in this round of announcements nonetheless. Some highlights include Tryptikon (the post-Celtic Frost band, making their only US appearance), Dark Angel (the classic hyper-fast thrash band featuring Gene Hoglan of Strapping Young Lad/Fear Factory/Death), Inquisition (who released one of this year's best albums), the long-running powerviolence act Capitalist Casualties, and reunited Floridian grinders Maruta. The complete list of new announcements is below.
Tickets for the festival go on sale tomorrow (11/23) at 3pm. You'll be able to buy whole-fest passes for $255, and 3-day Friday->Sunday passes for each stage for considerably list. Individual tickets will go on sale in December.
MDF's organizers also announced more venue information, including a breakdown of which bands will play at which of the fest's three stages (though the only day-specific lineup that they've announced so far is for Thursday). You can find the complete lineup, divvied up by stage, along with the full list of new artist announcements, below...
Reunited crust greats Antisect completed their first US tour with a show at Europa last night (6/10), a tour that kicked off in California included a stop at Chaos in Tejas. Europa's bill was rounded out by Boston crust-doomers Morne, ripping Brooklyn punks Perdition, and Death First (who I missed). Pictures from the last three sets are below.
If you stopped by the show, hopefully you made a trip to the merch table. Antisect was offering their freshly recorded 4 Minutes Past Midnight/Out From The Void (Part 2) Tour 10" that night, their first studio recordings in 17 years.
More pics of Antisect, Perdition and Morne at Europa are below...

Outside of the previously discussed date with Antisect at Europa on June 10th (tickets), Morne will play a string of dates on their own at the end of March and into April. The four date East Coast jaunt will include a stop for an NYC date on March 30th at Saint Vitus. Tickets are on sale for this BrooklynVegan/Order of The Serpent Event.
The show will also include an appearance from Chicago's The Swan King, who released their Eyes Like Knives via Seventh Rule last year. Stream all of it below, and head to the band's Bandcamp to download a digital copy for free.

Dropdead at Europa (more by Keith Marlowe)
Chaos in Tejas have announced another round of bands for their 2012 shindig (first round here), including rare appearances from legendary post-hardcore band Moss Icon (a one-time only reunion), as well as Japan's Reality Crisis and Skizophrenia (their only US dates), and repeat offenders/favorites like Dropdead, Municipal Waste, Midnight, Ares Kingdom, Puerto Rico Flowers, Xeno & Oaklander, Thou, the Rival Mob, Boston Strangler, Crazy Spirit, Brain Killer, Power Trip, Wiccans (who just played one of the final shows at Emo's), and many many others. A full list of additions and the new flyer is below.
Since the original announcement, two previously announced bands have dropped off the original lineup: Mexican black metal band Nyogthaeblisz disappeared from the lineup after their anti-Islamic/Semitic/Abrahamic stance and involvement in known NSBM (National Socialist) label Satanic Skinhead was pointed out by a few blogs. That led to Antisect and The Mob even threatening to not play. Word then spread that Disma's Craig Pillard released nazi-glorifying records under the name Sturmfuhrer. Disma then dropped out as well due to "the drama" that ensued. Craig would not comment on the matter, but other members of Disma say he has changed.
In related news, Thou will hit the road for a string of dates with The Body this week on the West Coast. Both bands will also be at the inaugural Gilead Media festival (chaired by the Gilead Media label) in Oshkosh, Wi on 4/28 and 4/29 which will feature appearances from (in alphabetical order) Arms Aloft, Aseethe, Ash Borer, Baby Boy, Darger + Plague Mother, False, Fell Voices, Get Rad, Hell, Loss, Mutilation Rites, Northless, Protestant, A Scanner Darkly, and Sleepwalker. More details are available at the site.
All tour dates, new additions to Chaos in Tejas, and the show flyer is all below.
Antisect live at Puntala-Rock in Lempäälä, Finland, July 2011
For crust legends Antisect, who originally split in 1987, the just-announced Chaos in Tejas show is one of a a few dates scheduled including a stop in NYC on June 9th. More details are forthcoming, but meanwhile you can check out the announced list of cities and dates below.
The band is poised to re-release their 1983 debut In Darkness, There Is No Choice via Southern Records and are preparing a limited edition 10" of unreleased and rerecorded material which the band will have at live shows.
The band issued the following statement regarding their reformation:
24 years later, the world is a slightly different place. 24 years later, we are all slightly different people.Read the statement in full at the Antisect site, and check out the band live (in video form) along with all tour dates below...
24 years later, we find that for the most part, a lot of the same problems and injustices are still with us. 24 years later, we find that for the most part, we still feel very similar about them.
24 years ago, we had lived through the first part of our adult lives. 24 years later, we've grown up, (a little) and have to deal with responsibilities and situations that simply didn't exist for us back then.
Volume 8 of the incredible Chaos in Tejas will go down on May 31st through June 3rd in Austin, Texas, and this year and much like last, its chock full of incredible rare appearances from across the punk, crust, indie, and metal world. Among the announced are crust legends Antisect, The Mob (UK), the reformed and final lineup of Nasum, Best Coast (who recently got a new drummer), Tear it Up (who recently reunited in NYC), Varukers, Winter, Iceage, Forward, Ghoul, Double Negative (who play NYC next week), and so much more. The announcement is just the first batch of bands, with an additional 100+ still to come. Check out the Chaos in Tejas flyer above. Full list of bands below...
