Lord Gore

Lord Gore is a death metal/gridcore/goregrind band from Portland, Oregon.  They will be making their first California Deathfest appearance in 2017, and will also be playing at Maryland Deathfest in 2018.

Putrid Pile

If Putrid Pile is not one of the earliest one-man goregrind bands, it might be one of the best known. After seeing the one-man Insidious Discrepancy live in 2000, mastermind Shaun LaCanne was inspired to start his own one-man project. In true goregrind fashion, Putrid Pile is a disgusting blend of samples, guttural vocals, blasts, and catchy, heavy riffs all focused on sickness, gore, and sex. Putrid Pile is from Wisconsin, further suggesting that there’s clearly something in the mid-western water. Putrid Pile played the first ever MDF and will be making their second appearance.

Sanitys Dawn

Sanity’s Dawn join MDF from Germany, where they formed in 1987. Starting as a goregrind band, Sanity’s Dawn emerged as a more punk/straight-forward grind band starting with their album Chop Copper, in 2001. In their long history, Sanity’s Dawn have released splits with Exhumed and grind staples like Magrudergrind, Yacopse, and Fuck…I’m Dead. This is Sanity’s Dawn’s second MDF appearance, their first in 2006.

Waco Jesus

Seated at the intersection of “death metal, grind and porn,” are Illinois natives, Waco Jesus.   This self-described “shit-rock” band covers dark and sometimes gross themes, such as misogyny, shit, and sex. While founders Kevin Mensen and Crazy Jim set out to upset people and disrupt the peace with their extreme sound, Waco Jesus fits into a long line of Illinois depravity, including bands like Lividity and Impetigo and serial killers like the Railway Killer. Waco Jesus fits in perfectly with the guttural, perverse, slam-filled Thursday Soundstage line up.
