The organizers futher commented: "These last couple of days have been incredibly confusing and stressful, but we are currently back to the regularly scheduled program. And don't worry, beyond plan B is a plan C, because that's how we roll. See you in a couple of weeks."
As such, the set times that were previously announced should now hold.

NECROPHAGIA vocalist Killjoy has contributed vocals to the new Bone Gnawer track "Defleshed and Skinned."
Kam Lee comments: "It's a great - great honor to have the legandary Killjoy join in on vocals on this track... and his added vile vocal sickness only ads yet another level of pure sheer terror and horror to an already brutal song!
"It's been a fantastic and great honor to have all of these 'special guest vocalist' join in on us in BONE GNAWER songs - and this is a tradition we wish to continue with on each and every release we do in the future - to have 'special guest musicians' join in with us on the horror and terror that is BONE GNAWER!
"That's right freaks - the fantastic Spanish Master of Murder DOPI - from the killer kick ass old school style grind-core/death band MACHETAZO will be doing a 'special guest vocal appearence' on the BONE GNAWER track 'HAMMER TO THE SKULL' - and there couldn't be a better track for this insane brother of evil to appear on!
"Nothing but pure hellish angry vocals is just what we needed for this track - and DOPI is more then eager to supply a grand dose of pure hostile hatred for it! We look forward to having our brother DOPI on this track with us - and we hope you fans will enjoy this as well. If your still not familiar with the great MACHETAZO - you need to be! Their new album - MUNDO CRIPTA is a masterpiece of pure old school style grind-core/death metal - the way it was meant to be played!
"We wish to thank - Killjoy of NECROPHAGIA, as well as Dopi of MACHETAZO, and Stevo of IMPETIGO for their participation in joining us on the: FEAST OF FLESH!"

Two bands have dropped off next year's Maryland Death Fest, scheduled to take place May 27th and 28th 2006 at The Sonar in Baltimore, MD. Those bands are FISTFUCK and FRIGHTMARE. The following explanation has been posted on the Maryland Death Fest website:
"A band member in FISTFUCK had a personal matter come up and won't be able to travel to the US next May. It is not the bands fault, nor is it ours. The band has stated they will play shows in the US as soon as it is possible again.
Also, although FRIGHTMARE was the first band we confirmed for MDF IV, they have canceled. Now they don't want to make their appearance exclusive to MDF and that's the only explanation we can provide you. As frustrating as this for us, that's all we're going to say. "
The following five bands have been added, in addition to replacing FRIGHTMARE and FISTFUCK:
BURNT BY THE SUN (New Jersey)
They join the following list of previously confirmed bands: More...
