Less than two weeks out from the festival’s kick-off on Friday, May 22, Maryland Deathfest organizers have announced that, in order to accommodate higher than expected ticket sales, the fest will have a stage set up outside Sonar, in addition to the Sonar main stage. As of today, tickets are available again for purchase but have gone fast in previous onsale intervals.

The running order for all 54 bands has also been announced. Cephalic Carnage headlines Friday, while, interestingly enough, a pair of black metal bands close out the night on Saturday and Sunday – Wolves in the Throne Room and Sigh, respectively. Check out the festival’s Myspace post for full running order details.

Yours truly will be covering Saturday and Sunday of the fest, so stay tuned for all the gory details (and photos).
