Maryland Death Fest 2013

The concept of MDF is simple: to bring to the United States the best and most extreme bands the underground has to offer. Never conforming to trends, or being limited by genre restrictions, MDF is a showcase of what extreme music, both new and old, is capable of.… Show more

Carcass are an extreme metal band from England, formed in 1985 and disbanded in 1995. A reunion was enacted in 2008 without one of its original members, drummer Ken Owen. Although widely regarded as pioneers of the grindcore genre, their early work was also tagged as "splatter death metal", "hardgore" and "goregrind" on account of their morbid lyrics and gruesome album covers.
One of the original bands of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal that sprang up in the late 1970s, Venom played a menacingly fast style of black metal that would be ripped off by bands from across the metal spectrum in the decades to follow....
The hard-drinking British death metal band Benediction formed during the late 1980s; originally comprised of vocalist Barney Greenaway, guitarists Peter Rewinski and Darren Brookes, bassist Paul Adams and drummer Ian Treacy, they made their LP debut in 1990 with Subconscious Terror....
Chicago-based black metal band Broken Hope was formed by singer Joe Ptacek, guitarist Jeremy Wagner and drummer Ryan Stanek following the dissolution of their previous band, Crypt; adding lead guitarist Brian Griffin and bassist Ed Hughes, the group's early demos soon earned a contract with Grindcore Records, and in 1991 they issued their debut LP Swamped in Gore....
Wichita, KS-based Manilla Road is one of America's -- make that the world's -- great cult heavy metal bands. Geographically isolated, fiercely independent, and highly original, the group has rarely toured and never seen a single album released by a major record company, but has nevertheless managed to endure in one form of another for over two decades....
While relatively unsung compared to heavyweights such as Napalm Death and Carcass, Repulsion nevertheless had a big impact in shaping the then-young grindcore genre during its brief heyday in the late '80s....

The punk metal act Converge were formed in the winter of 1990-1991, and after several singles, compilation appearances, and the requisite growing pains, they released their first full-length effort, Halo in a Haystack, in 1994....
In its most prominent incarnation, the free-improv noise duo Ascension was an offshoot of the Skullflower/Ramleh family tree, a loose collective of noise-rock bands with ties to psychedelia and early industrial music....
Los Angeles-by-way-of-Chicago instrumental quartet Pelican pride themselves on being impossible to classify. While it might be easy to label them metal, their extended compositions explore too many moods and textures to be reduced to a single genre....
Minneapolis, MN's Ambassador Gun aren't really a grindcore band in the strictest definition of the term, but they certainly perform their invariably concise jabs of sonic Armageddon at blinding speeds and rampant violence -- even the songs that, if slowed down to "normal" tempos, might qualify as straightforward rock & roll....
