One of the biggest North American music festivals of the year happened this weekend, the Maryland Deathfest. I wasn't able to attend due to some personal commitments, but thanks to basically all of my friends and a lot of metal media being there and posting constantly to Instagram, I felt like I was there.
It looked like a great time was had by all and there were certainly a lot of characters. I thought I would compile a post of some of the most awesome-looking metalheads at the fest. I decided to spare you of blurry shots of bands performing, because this seems way more fun.
So, here I present the people of MDF:
