Last week I attended the best metal/extreme music festival in North America, the Maryland Death Fest! 4 days, 63 bands of all different styles and varieties (grind, black metal, death, trad, sludge, hardcore, doom, etc), tons of extreme music lovers from all over the world, it was one of the best weekends ever! I'm already looking forward to next's year's 10th anniversary which can only be fantastic! Lots of !

One of the great things about a festival like MDF is among the incredible lineup of headliners and favorite bands, there are plenty of the scene's best upcoming bands to discover for the first time. This year's fest was full of gems I hadn't heard before and was super glad to be introduced to. On the first day of MDF IX, this super abrasive unrelenting grind band took the stage and proceeded to quickly tear out eardrums and pound faces into the ground. Shitstorm produces some of the fastest and quickest bursts of awesome hardcore-tinged grindcore I had ever heard. Unlike their other sludgy pop band Torche, Shitstorm is a tribute to all things loud, raw, biting, dirty and harsh. Packed into less then a minute, crusty noisy guitars explode as the drummer blasts faster then seemingly possible, while fierce and furious growls and screams scrape the skin from flesh. Grind/hardcore fans went nuts for them, while those less inclined made a b-line for the door. They definitely impressed the fuck out of me! Check it out!
