Underground death metal legends Sadistic Intent are the only good band currently booked for the 2018 iteration of Maryland Deathfest, North America’s premier SJW pandering pseudo-metal festival. The only other notable booking is Sinister, who are playing with a heavily gutted lineup with Aad Kloosterwaard as the only original member. He doesn’t even play drums anymore but just does the vocals now. Headbangers would be wise to avoid this yearly reoccurring cancer.

Hmm Zemial could be worthy as well
Would never bother traveling anywhere to see any concert or festival. Those events are for social butterlies.
Even though I stopped caring years ago about attending concerts, a few acts I would want to experience live, are Sadistic Intent, Zemial, and…
Wow, COVEN ? Jinx Dawson is finally performing live in concert again? …I am now looking at live clips from the past year and she aged well since 1969. Reminds me of Paul Williams in the 1970s movie Phantom of The Paradise where he sold his soul to Satan to look young forever.
If it were during the prime of specific bands I would travel the distance but sadly that does not seem to be the case anymore. Maybe I’d travel a few states over for a Sabbat concert
I’ve seen Sadistic Intent once (2016/12/31, 2017/01/01) and they’re certainly worth some effort. OTOH, the only other band which a chance of being a decent/ good experience so far is Phrenelith and festivals are pretty much going to suck because they’re festivals.
Haven’t looked into phrenelith yet but been meaning to. Another kind of related band Rude has peaked some of my interest lately especially their latest album
Listened to the phrenelith full length several times, pleasantly surprised but I wish there were a few solos. I usually don’t care for bands on dark descent but I like this release
There’s a guitar solo in one of the tracks. ‘The trick’ of the ‘Immolation trick pony’ (sorry, but I really hate his style) is also applied in a couple of places, although in a more measured way (thankfully).
I don’t mind well-played guitar solos, but I consider them dispensable in both death and black metal, more so in the latter: The very idea of ‘guitar solo’ seems at odds with ‘black metal’ to me, at least unless they’re Euronymous-style primitive outbursts of string-mutilation. Any display of virtuosity has a certain brilliantly sparkling quality to it and that’s a bad fit for the supposedly dark and serious subject matter.
Bob Vigna’s guitar hero is Eric Clapton.
Clapton can play amazing stuff if he choses to do so. The problem is, he usually doesn’t, and his audience doesn’t care, they want “I cocained the sheriff” forwards, backwards, forwards again and then backwards once more. And “These white guys want to play the blues so bad. And they play the blues so bad.” (Muddy Waters).
Yeah I caught that solo and I’m not huge on solos in black or death either but I wouldn’t mind a few ripping passages like how Mortem does it. What do you mean by immolation trick pony exactly? I’ll be honest I have barely listed to immolation. After more time I think the phrenelith album is better than most death metal right now and by most I mean almost all releases coming out the past few years
The Immolation guitar hero. He has a particular way of playing a high-pitched angular wail he seems to like very much as he keeps playing it. Features prominently in
[2nd track of Dawn of Possession)
Ah yes I noticed this a bit on the phrenelith album. As long as it’s not constant I don’t mind/actually like how it is utilized sometimes
