Maryland Deathfest XV updated flyer

 

About an hour ago the organizers of Maryland Deathfest announced another round of bands confirmed to appear at the 2017 edition of the event. Here they are:

Batushka (Poland) (exclusive U.S. appearance)
Birdflesh (Sweden)
Chepang
Cognitive
Die Choking
English Dogs (UK)
Exhumed
Genocide Pact
Gorgasm
Malevolent Creation
Stormtroopers of Beer (official S.O.D. cover band featuring Dan Lilker and Jocke & Adde/General Surgery)
Suppression
UxDxS (Denmark)

MDF further revealed that a fourth and final round of bands will be announced sometime in September. That announcement will include the last two headliners. MDF is currently selling four-day passes here, and three-day passes for each venue, as well as single-day tickets, will go on sale after they announce theĀ final round of bands in September.

Speaking for myself, I’m most excited about the news that Batushka will be appearing next year. Also cool to see the appearance of Cognitive on this list (who recently signed to the Unique Leader label) as well as Gorgasm, and that Stormtroopers of Beer cover band should be fun, too. I wrote about Genocide Pact’s 2013 demo here, and that’s another band I’m very interested to see live.

I’ve heard some very enticing and pretty reliable rumors about the two headliners that will be announced in September, and I’m still struggling to keep quiet about it until the official announcement. I’ll just say that they go a long way to making up for the disappointment produced by the abandonment of Edison Lot as a venue next year.

  1. Hopefully one of the headliners is Emperor!

  2. Wouldn’t be shocked to see Nathrakh in the next announcement.

  3. I like Genocide Pact, and Batushka was a fantastic grab…outside of that, this was underwhelming as hell. Hope that final lineup announcement brings something really good

  4. Batushka is a great addition.
