This is Ghoul playing at Maryland Deathfest 6 at Sonar in Baltimore on 24 May 2008. They’re a splatter movie themed sorta crusty grind thrash band. They have bags on their heads because they’re supposed to be anonymous but everyone knows it’s a side project from a couple of the guys in Impaled. They talk like Cheech and Chong between songs, which was strange.

You can see a video I shot of them at this show by clicking the song name: Gutbucket Blues

This is the Australian grindcore band Fuck… I’m Dead playing at the Maryland Deathfest 6 at Sonar in Baltimore on 24 May 2008. They were all wearing these white suit tops with butcher aprons on and were covered in fake blood (hard to see with the red lights in this pic).

I shot a video of them at this show playing their song Waft Of Stench so just click that song name to see it.

This is the band Anaal Nathrakh playing at Maryland Deathfest 6 at Sonar in Baltimore on 24 May 2008. I have seen a lot of heavy metal bands in my day, but this show was just incredible. Easily one of the all time best shows I’ve ever seen and it made that trip up to Baltimore and back that night and the ticket and beers and all that worth it. I had no idea what to expect as this was their first US show. They totally destroyed. The sheer amount of energy coming from this band was just ridiculous. They didn’t dress up, they didn’t play stupid intros or talk about politics or anything like that. Hell, they didn’t even play their own instruments. Apparently there was a problem getting into the country and they couldn’t bring their gear, it was all borrowed, and it cost them 2 grand (I don’t know if that’s Dollars or Pounds) to get to the show. If you look close you can see Mick Kenny is playing the guy from Monstrosity‘s guitar, and the bass player has the bass from the guy in Ghoul. Not sure who the other instruments were from. Sadly much of the crowd from earlier had gone home by the time they hit the stage, sucks for them. This show was just sick. If you like extreme heavy metal you gotta see this band if you get the chance. I really cannot describe how awesome this show was. If you want to see some video I shot of their first 3 songs of the night click the song titles below:

Screaming Of The Unborn
Submission Is For The Weak
Do Not Speak

This is old school Florida death metal band Monstrosity playing at Maryland Deathfest 6 at Sonar in Baltimore on 24 May 2008. Oddly enough the crowd started getting smaller by this point as Ghoul surprisingly seemed to be the biggest draw of the night. Monstrosity isn’t my favorite death metal band, they’ve always been sort of a B-list band in that genre in my opinion, but I’d never seen them live so what the hell? It wasn’t a bad set, mostly some of their oldest songs mixed with songs from the newer album. The current singer for Cannibal Corpse, George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher used to be in this band, tho if you care you probably already know that. Anyways, you can see the video I took at this show of their song from their first album, Imperial Doom by clicking the title: Final Cremation
