Last weekend, literally thousands of metalheads from around the world descended on Baltimore for the annual Maryland Deathfest, which just seems to keep getting bigger each year. For the 2010 version, there were two outdoor stages in addition to the main inside stage. While I was only able to make Friday of this year’s three-day festival, that meant that I had the privilege of seeing the newest incarnation of Gorguts, the legendary Canadian death metal group whose music makes a lot of modern technical metal look like child’s play.
