Maryland Doom Fest 2020 - Speedealer, Mondo Generator, more

The Maryland Doom Fest 2020 has announced headliner Speedealer, with performances by Cirith Ungol, Blood Ceremony, Monodo Generator, Witch Mountain, Black Lung, and more.

The festival takes place June 18-21 in Frederick, MD.

In addition to playing the festival, Speedealer will soon be announcing 2020 tour dates in support of Blue Days Black Nights.

“This will be the first time the band has played Maryland Doom Fest. Our set will of course be on the heavier side, and will include some the slower songs from Bleed and our new album Blue Days Black Nights along with some old favorites. Songs like 'Dealers Choice' from the early days to 'Inventor of Evil' from Bleed will be on the set list," the group says in a statement. "We literally found out about our headlining slot the day before it was announced. Someone at the festival was really diggin’ the new record and reached out to us. We are honored and excited to be a part of this.”
