Maryland Deathfest's third round of bands are pretty damn impressive, with the latest set including names like Ulver (exclusive US appearance) Candlemass (exclusive US appearance), Sarke (exclusive too), Asphyx (them too), Tankard (yep), God Macabre (uh-huh), Machetazo (you got it), Solient Green, Extinction of Mankind, and Graves at Sea. The latest set of bands follows recent announcements that revealed At The Gates, Gorguts (check out our recent interview, and our EVR interview), Taake, Bongripper, Solstafir, Mgla, Hemdale, Excruciating Terror (who play California soon), Diocletian, Unleashed (exclusive US appearance), Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats (exclusive US appearance), Unholy Grave and Witchrist as part of 2014's lineup. Look towards a "likely" Carpathian Forest confirmation as well.
