Maryland Deathfest's west coast off-shoot, California Deathfest, has announced the first batch of bands to perform for the festival's third iteration on October 13th and 14th. As the name suggests, this lineup is some heavy shit. While I'm sure other big names will be announced at a later date, right now the festival is hanging its hat on Samael, who will be performing their 1994 album Ceremony Of Opposites in full. A revitalized Diocletian is also a pleasant surprise. Check out the rest of the lineup below, and you can follow California Deathfest on Facebook here.
