Deviated Instinct at Maryland Deathfest (more by BBG)
Deviated Instinct have had a trying few days after their set at Maryland Deathfest this weekend. During a show at Now That's Class in Cleveland, the van they were sharing with the band Dresden disappeared and with much of their personal items with it:
Ok, so we managed to recover the van. It's beaten and the trailer was hacked into, but drivable. Dresden lost a fair amount of backline and many of us lost personal luggage but we're back on the road. Huge thanks to those who have donated to help Dresden cover some of their losses.While that comes as semi-happy news (we'll take what we can get), the UK crust/doom crew have some other much happier news to share: an updoming 12" due via Profane Existence.
Produced by From Ashes Rise's Brad Boatright,Liberty Crawls to the Sanctuary of Slaves is Deviated Instinct's first original work in 22 years and will be released July 10. Preorder yours at Profane Existence to get an exclusive colorway and stream it in full below! The band also has a split with Summon The Crows, available for order now via Nakkeskud.
Deviated Instinct is currently on tour, heading to Chaos in Tejas this week. All remaining tour dates, that stream, album art, and a live video from MDF are below.
Trey Azagthoth of Morbid Angel
May 26th was a day of firsts for me at the tenth annual Maryland Deathfest. It was the first time I saw Confessor, Deviated Instinct and Haemorrhage. The first time I heard "new" material from death-doom godsWinter. The first time I saw Noothgrush with new live vocalist Dino Sommese (Ghoul, Dystopia, etc). And maybe most memorably, the first time I witnessed a man whip out his junk out on stage, piss in his cupped hand and wipe his face with it.
The latter first came care of Horna, who's lead singer Spellgoth performed the "urine baptism" at center stage (pictures below, NSFW?) and was one of several notable black metal-influenced performances (Archgoat, Tsjuder, Black Witchery) on that brutally hot Saturday. The moment wasn't noticed by many, but the foul stench of old blood and human fluids left a trail throughout the indoor stage.
My mid-afternoon arrival at Sonar meant that I sadly missed sets by Infernal Stronghold, Bloody Phoenix, and Looking for an Answer, and not-so-sadly missed October 31 (members Deceased) and Anvil (the former being eons better than the latter). The remainder of the sweltering hot day was largely a string of successes with stellar sets from crusty thrashers Hellbastard, UK's Dragged into Sunlight, deliciously obnoxious goregrind from Haemorrhage, death-doom pioneers Winter (who played unearthed songs at MDF), thrash from Morbid Saint and an impressive set from the reunited technical-doom crew Confessor.
Reunited crust-death metal crew Deviated Instinct wins for my favorite of the daytime performances (they played at close to the same time as The Devil's Blood), and though bassist David Vincent gave me a bit of a Nikki Sixx douche-chill during Morbid Angel's headlining set, the band's performance of the early classics absolutely murdered. Brujeria, the supercrew made up of members of Napalm Death, Carcass and more, were great headliners for the opposing outdoor stage but I opted for Noothgrush.
