Report

Maryland Death Fest Day Two

On Day Two, the scene had changed. The street in front of the club had been shut down and made into the fest grounds. One stage was at each end of the street, just over the length of the building. I won’t say that the festival had a lot of space; we were kind of worried about bands overlapping and drowning out each other’s sound. But the rigs for each stage were so loud that that would prove impossible. Vendors also lined up between the two stages selling boxes of vinyl, CDs, and even some cassettes. There were t-shirts galore with hideous pictures and illegible logos. I was really amused by the black metal face-painting stand where you could choose from KISS, Immortal, King Diamond, and your other favorite corpse-painted rockers. Inside Sonar was a new merch room that was so constantly crowded and oddly arranged, it kind of looked like a beggar’s village with really cool wares for sale. With so much drink, food, merchandise from every band in existence, and amazing live shows all day long, you couldn’t ask for more. More...

Marduk Cancels Metal In The Forest Appearance

Swedish black metal act Marduk has checked in with the following announcement about canceling the band's previously scheduled appearance at the Metal in the Forest festival:

"Marduk not appearing at the Metal in the Forest festival... Due to the fact that the promoter of the Metal in the forest festival waited for to long to buy the flight tickets (2 days before and still no flights were booked), it became a situation where there were no longer returning flights available for Marduk's other obligations. It doesnt affect any other show then the Metal in the forest festival."

Marduk also recently posted a new song online titled "Warschau 2 - Headhunter Halfmoon" which is off the band's upcoming EP "Iron Dawn" (reviewed here).

Please welcome one of the most important and influential bands of the last decade for the first time at Summer Breeze! Hard, harder, Hatebreed!"
