I shot the first day of Maryland Deathfest X yesterday!
The first Deathfest I could’ve gone to was back in 2005. I really can’t believe it took me this long to go.
I used to host the metal show in college & I played drums in a hardcore band back then, too.
I love metal! And I know some of you might find this hard to believe, but metalheads are some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. The bands are great, but I find Deathfest-goers fascinating.
In the pit, if someone gets knocked over, fellow moshers flock to pick em up.
Metal is music for the disenfranchised. But a metal fest gives these cultural outliers a commonality. People were in such great moods. I’ve never seen so many people dressed in black smiling so much.
Don’t get me wrong, there’s definitely a few jerks at metal shows, but by and large, it’s a super-nice group of people.
Also, thanks to J.M. Giordano. …for the beer.
