Gather the battalions, Maryland Deathfest is upon us! Your beloved Tumblr blogger, Lars Gotrich, will be taking on the four-day metal festival for the fourth year in a row (see also: Portraits Of An American Metal Festival).
You can follow me on Twitter (@totalvibration) for tweets, photos and my general decay as a sleep-deprived human being sweating it out on the Baltimore asphalt. But I’ve also left y’all with a four-hour playlist of this year’s bands playing MDF, from Swedish death metal legends At the Gates to Japanese skull-crushers Coffins to Brazilian hardcore pioneers Ratos de Porão to Portland’s Agalloch. Hails and horns!
It’s extremely extreme. See y’all in the pit.
