Devourment

Bolt Thrower has released this bit of news regarding their first trip to the USA in 14 years:

"Due to the fact that we are not real festival lovers or great fans of flying, the chances of us ever coming to the States for a one-off show was always very small. But after years of relentless emails from Ryan we've finally given in. It's hard to believe that it's been 14 years since we last played in the US, so we are very happy to announce that we are finally coming back. Bolt Thrower will be playing Maryland Deathfest VII, on May 22-24, 2009, at Sonar, Baltimore, MD."

A few more bands were exected to be included in this announcement, but the organizers are still working on the details. Therefore, another announcement is expected with even more band confirmations in the near future, as they wrap up the booking process for Maryland Deathfest 2009

Tickets will definitely go on sale on Friday, November 7th.

Bolt thrower!!! SWEET. I am surprised that it's been so long. They should consider doing a US tour. Too bad I live in the south. Maryland is a long flight or drive.

Marduk, Keep of Kalessin, Devourment, Mayhem :). I'm blowin a load already :). Okay, minor thing, Maryland deathfest seems to be getting more than just deathmetal. They had grindcore, death metal and now they got black metal.
