Metal Threat Fest 2019

Metal Threat Fest 2019

An underground metal fest that was inspired by these other fests in North America: Maryland Deathfest, Martyrdoom, Cathedral of the Black Goat, Defenders of the Old, Messe des Morts, Wings of Metal, and Ragnarökkr Metal Apocalypse

The Chasm

Legendary underground death metal band. Founded in 1992 in Mexico City, Mexico. Relocated in 1998 to Chicago, Illinois, United States.

Death metal band from Nokia, Finland, founded in 1990.

Featuring vocalist/guitarist Rami Jämsä, guitarists Jani Kuhanen (1989-1991) Toni Honkala (1992-1994), bassist Juha Telenius and drummer Janne Miikkulainen, Finland's short-lived death metal band Convulse only issued two albums (1991 "World Without God" and 1994's "Reflections") during their brief career, neither of which brought them much recognition at the time. But hindsight is always 20/20, and they have been retrospectively credited as one of their country's first extreme metal groups of note.

Convulse became active again in 2012 and have since released two albums: "Evil Prevails" in 2013 and "Cycle of Revenge" in 2016.

Dispirit

Begun as a purely experimental improvisational outlet in 2000 after the demise of Weakling, and existing concurrently with The Gault and Asunder, John Gossard began creating music with drummer Peter Blair, born out the ashes of Weakling, but constantly morphing through other realms of dark music. After nearly a decade of fermentation, a few unstable lineups, and countless worldly distractions, 2009 saw a stable lineup form with Todd Meister and Nikhil Sarma entering the picture. With a full lineup, many the skeletons created from the old recorded improvisations became the basis for fully composed material. In 2010 the rehearsal/demo tape "Rehearsal at Oboroten" was released and the band began making occasional live appearances. In late 2011 N.S. exited the group due to conflicting prior commitments. Dispirit played a handful of shows after N.S. departure thanks to the help Sean McGrath (Impaled, Ghoul) to fulfill our prior commitments. In mid 2012 the band recruited Ryan Jencks (Deathroes, Sixes, Crash Worship) on second guitar and in late 2012 recorded a second demo, "111112". In mid 2013 P.B. retired for the band, and Jason Bursesse (Cyanic, Black Fucking Cancer) joined them as session drums for select shows. In 2014 the band recruited Trevor Deschryver (Lycus, ex-Deafheaven (yeah quit your whining already!)) on drums, but for how long?

Death metal band from Birmingham, Alabama, US.
