|In a venue that I haven't been inside of for 9 years, an awesome hardcore show happened. Some bands were late or whatever, but that didn't matter. A room full of people just enjoying themselves. Plus, it was over by 9pm. I easily sweated out a gallon of water. Thank you to everyone that came out. I would love to do this again!|
|So I headed down to the ghost town known as Centralia once again to brave the Silent Hill-esque nightmare. (Don't believe me? click here) to see a show in the town that won't stop burning. Hot show, but now I'm home. |
|All around awesome show. All the band gave the audience what they wanted, DOOM! Karyn Crisis's new band was pretty excellent. It features most of Immolation/Tombs and Karyn. Definitely check these guys out. Magic Circle almost stole the show. I can't believe how good they were.|
|Have I really seen Hivesmasher 39 times? That blows my mind! From 6/10/2007 to today, they have always been great. It kind of stinks that all their friends had to drive 13hrs down to the abandoned town of Centralia. Their send off was pure class. From all the bands setting the stage to them to how they set up the stage themselves. Almost every member from the band's past set up their own gear and played. As they did their set, the line up changed until the end when almost everyone was on stage playing at the same time. Awesome. Where was the keyboardist or the original singer? I think that you should make up your own stories. Maybe something from the recent news stories would be cool and topical.|
Another thing that ruled about this show was all the friend. Every single direction I turned I would see someone to talk to. There were a lot of people who came out of mosh retirement for this one. No way they could have been sent off better.
|Killer show and killer bands. shows like this are why I even bother to leave my house. here is to another 30 years of deceased!|
|Killer show. I went cause noisem was playing and they rule. Can't pass up that band when they come around. Coagula was added last minute to the show too which was also cool to see since I missed them last night at KOTO.|
|Not only did Masacre destroy at MDF, they also did it in Revere. Such a great show. All the locals were great too. I need togo to more Sammy's shows.|
|4 days, 960 miles driven, 8hrs of sleep, almost 100 miles walked, losing my $80 ear plugs, and MDF 2015 is now in the book. I wished I had more time to chit-chat with everyone, but I was always running from stage to stage to stage to stage. Regardless, for those days, we were all one big happy family running around the city of Baltimore, enjoying metal music and avoiding the camp crusty that the crusties set up.
There were so many highlights, Master, Massacre, Primordial (was that sunscreen he was wearing?), the best Napalm Death set ever, Melt-banana, awkward Acrturus, my second Agoraphobic Nosebleed set (and their second), finally seeing Bloodbath, getting hit harder than a Mobb Deep track, Razor’s set. Just so much that I wish I could have paused to enjoy a little bit longer.
Thank you to Hillarie for playing mommy and making sure I got food/sunscreen/schedules/etc... Evan, Ryan, the DMG, Sid, Nancy, Matt Black, Nick, and all the staff of all the venues. This was the smoothest MDF ever. I will see you next year.
Finally, thank you to everyone that looks at/shares/likes the pictures I posted, all the people who stopped me to say they loved what I do, all the people who went out of their way to move, yelled "RETURN TO THE PIT" at me. And most importantly, Sorry to the people whose feet I so rudely stepped on, whose heads I accidentally hit with my elbows, and/or whom I completely blew past as they tried to talk to me because my earplugs were still in. Everything that helps me in the slightest bit makes my job that much easier.
Even on this, my 11th MDF, I learned a lot and hopefully will do an even better job next year. I have some ideas of things that I need to do (yes demon dave, more random shots), but if you have anything else, hit me up rev at returntothepit dot com
