This is no tentative first step, either; a whopping 18 bands were announced today as performers at next year’s event:

Entombed (Sweden)
Obituary

Eyehategod
Sinister (Netherlands)
Incantation
Portal (Аustralia)
Haemorrhage (Spain)
Impaled
Gridlink
Ingrowing (Czech Republic)

Birds Of Prey
Fuck The Facts (Canada)
Tombs
Howl

Organizer Ryan Taylor says, “Headliners and many more bands are still TBA. Headliner announcements could come within the next 1-2 weeks.”

We won’t be blogging every band announcement here, of course, so keep your eyes on the MDF website and the MDF forums for the breaking news as it happens.
