HALLELUJAH! Only a few weeks after the three-day slaughterfest that was MDF 2009, the madmen behind the whole thing (Ryan and Evan) have announced the initial lineup and dates for next year's edition.
The festival will take place from May 28th to May 30th, with venue information to be released at a later date. The first bands to be confirmed are as follows:
ENTOMBED / OBITUARY / PENTAGRAM / EYEHATEGOD / SINISTER / INCANTATION / PORTAL / HAEMORRHAGE / IMPALED / GRIDLINK / INGROWING / GRIDE / MASSGRAVE / 16 / BIRDS OF PREY / FUCK THE FACTS / TOMBS / HOWL
Start planning your trip down there NOW- judging from the massive success and insanely stacked lineup of the 2009 edition, this one's going to be an absolute behemoth. I'm dying to see how they'll top this year's lineup – they've already got Eyehategod, Entombed, and Pentagram, so I'm going to sit back and hope they can convince Hellhammer or Nihilist to reform and play a few tunes. Wishful thinking? Almost definitely, but hey, a girl can dream. Check out some of the five million videos Metal Injection has from MDFs past, and get STOKED.
