so, since you mentioned a "curse" and bad things happening, I'll admit to a very embarrassing and scary thing that happened to me on Day 4 - basically I had some sort of sunstroke seizure during Orange Goblin. I had spent the early part of the day walking around Baltimore for around 4 miles in the hot sun with no water, and when I got to MDF was standing there watching OG in direct sunlight, only on my second beer of the day, when I suddenly felt really dizzy. Next thing I knew I was stumbling uncontrollably through the crowd, falling into people like I was completely wasted, and I'm sure people thought I was - I managed to get inside the building hallway but at that point I literally could not see and felt like I was dreaming ... and completely collapsed on the ground. I've never had that happen, even drunk, and it was FUCKED UP. I immediately "snapped out of it" after hitting the ground, but I also managed to twist my ankle during the fall and spent the rest of the night on one foot in crazed pain.
So, yes, I would say this cool story bro shows I was under the curse.
Beyond that, I enjoyed Repugnant quite a bit, thought Coroner were decent although they seemed so slick after the low-budget look of most bands ("we want to send this song out to Jonas, who does all of our on-stage sampling!!" was a real wtf moment) ... and Ghost were IMO awful, as mentioned in the other thread I walked out after their third song in boredom. I hope it doesn't ruin the record for me, which I like.
Yeah that video is what Malignant Tumor sounded like 10 years ago. This is what they sound like now, except I think they played this song better at MDF and the crowd was way more crazy for them. I swear the bassist looked happier than I thought was possible through their entire set.

Repugnant and Inquisition were the only good sets. What a lame fest this year.
