Comments:
This year’s MDF Pre Fest Party show is a bit different than in years past. It still features some great death metal bands but the venue hosting the event is the Metro Gallery (in previous years it had been the Ottobar). The venue is an 18+ only venue, so that means this show will not be all ages either.

Comments:
Pallbearer is coming to the Rock & Roll Hotel with a pretty sick pair of bands supporting them on this tour. Inter Arma is seriously one of the best live metal bands around these days, don’t sleep on them. And Gatecreeper plays a style of death metal influenced by old Bolt Thrower and early Swedish death metal bands.

Iron Maiden is coming back to Jiffy Lube Live and this time with openers Ghost. We know Iron Maiden puts on one hell of a show on the big stage, it will be interesting to see what Ghost does with their theatrical unholy pope show in such a setting.

Several of the new generation of Relapse Records bands are all on this stacked line up. Gatecreeper from Arizona plays a style of death metal reminiscent of those early Swedish death metal bands and Bolt Thrower. DC’s Ilsa plays crusty death/doom metal and Baltimore’s Noisem is a death/thrash band. Thrashers Narrow Grave (the only band on the bill not signed to Relapse) will be kicking things off.

Comments:
I’m not going to pretend that I’m a Deftones fan, but if I was man I’d be pissed at the ticket prices for this show after the fees. Even the cheap seats come out to over $60 a ticket after fees, wow. I guess that’s what you get when you try to see a metal band at corporate casino.

Comments:
Too bad this is an early show on a weekday. With traffic in our town if you don’t work in DC there’s no way you’re getting there at a decent time. A shame since the line up is pretty sweet. Cobalt is a black metal band from Colorado. You may remember they toured with Wolves In The Throne Room last year and I must say they put on a hell of a performance. They dealt with a major line up change and still came through strong, not a lot of bands can do that. Also on the bill is Aseethe, a drone band from Iowa and opener Bruce Lamont who is probably best known as the saxaphone player in Yakuza and Corrections House.

Comments:
Uhtcearu is a melodic black metal band from Wisconsin. They are touring to support the 2nd album, For Darkness To Subside and this is their stop in our area. They’re playing with Citadel (featuring members of Ilsa) and Helgamite, a stoner/doom band from Rileyville, Virginia. This show is presented by DCHeavyMetal.com but it isn’t a “metal night” like we put on sometimes, it’s just a kick ass show.

Comments:
In 1996 Apocalyptica released their debut album which was entirely comprised of Metallica covers. Back in those days the band didn’t have a drummer or vocalist and now they’re celebrating the 20th anniversary (or 21st I suppose) of the Apocalyptica plays Metallica by Four Cellos with a tour. They’ve gone back to their roots and will be playing a set comprised of Metallica covers from that album as well as other Metallica covers.

Comments:
Polish death metal band Decapitated are returning to tour the US and they’re playing with a couple of deathcore bands in Thy Art Is Murder and Fallujah. For some reason the hipster black metal band Ghost Bath was added to this bill, which seems totally out of place but hey, maybe they’ll make some new fans.
