Comments:
Well here’s a sweet line up of mince/grind. Agathocles, from Belgium, is playing in the US for the first time (I think they were supposed to play Deathfest a few years ago but had to drop). Also on the bill is Archagathus, a Canadian mince band. And let’s not forget the excellent Total Fucking Destruction. Mind As Prison is back playing shows and heads up the local support on this one. Overall, it’s a pretty damn good line up that grind fans would be stupid to miss.

Hasan is turning 28 so he booked this sick doom metal show! Chrch is a crushing band from Sacramento, California, and making a rare east coast performance. Fister is the best doom metal coming out of St Louis, Missouri, and they rarely play around here. Doom fans will not want to miss this show!

Cannibal Corpse, Nile and Suffocation all on the same bill is reason enough to go to this one! Looking past some of the more deathcore bands like ATB and Carnifex, there’s still some sweet stuff in there like Revocation and Krisiun. The line up isn’t all home runs but it’s still incredibly awesome, death metal fans won’t want to miss this insane line up!

Austrian blackened death metal band Belphegor returns to the US to headline this tour.

Now this is a pretty sweet line up! Skeletonwitch brings their thrash metal from Ohio to Baltimore as headliner on this tour. Iron Reagan is a crossover thrash band that features several members of Municipal Waste. Belgian band Oathbreaker plays hardcore that uses black metal elements in their sound. Gatecreeper is a sick death metal band from Arizona that has recently been signed to Relapse. And get there early to catch Homewrecker, a band that crosses death metal and grindcore into a hardcore package. Top to bottom this is a pretty damn sweet line up!

Comments:
What a killer line up! Ulcerate is tech death from New Zealand and their drummer, Jamie Saint Merat, is probably the best drummer in all of heavy metal right now. Seeing the guy play live is unreal! Also on the tour is Zhrine from Iceland, an interesting band with an upright bass that made a lot of new fans when they filled in last minute for Svartidauði at Maryland Deathfest XIV back in May. Also on this tour is Phobocosm, a tech death band from Montreal that really shreds. This is a sick underground tour package!

The Dutch symphonic power metal band Epica return to Baltimore and this time they’re bringing along a rather heavy band with them. Fleshgod Apocalypse is from Italy and plays melodic death metal with symphonic elements for their unique sound. Also on the bill is Arkona, a folk metal band from Russia. The Agonist is performing as well. They’re the band that Alissa White-Gluz was in before joining Arch Enemy as their current vocalist. Alissa isn’t in The Agonist any more though, she’s been replaced by Vicky Psarakis.
