As we do every year, Invisible Oranges will be slowing down for the remainder of the week while yours truly travels cross-country to cover Maryland Deathfest. Wish me luck. I saw Tengger Cavalry late last night and woke up before dawn this morning in order to catch an 8am flight to Baltimore. I'll be attending each day at MDF across all stages, including the pre-party tonight with Absu. We'll have photos courtesy of Levan TK and Blair Hopkins, not to mention full-day write-ups next week.

Please feel free to use the comment thread below to plan meet-ups, or just talk about what sets you're psyched for (Crypt Sermon, Paradise Lost) or going to skip (Mayhem, Venom). I'll be checking in periodically. If you'd like some fact time, I'll likely be in a black denim jacket with a Motorhead backpatch. Remember to drink a glass of water between beers and change your underwear and socks!

In closing, I'd like to recite The Archer "Hail Bloody Mary" because Satan be good, my liver will need your prayers this weekend.
