Soilent Green To Replace Grave At 2024 ‘Maryland Deathfest’


There’s been a shakeup in the lineup for this year’s edition of the ‘Maryland Deathfest‘. Grave have dropped off the bill, having scrapped their 2024 touring plans. A statement from the Swedish death metal group’s guitarist/vocalist Ola Lindgren on the matter read as follows:

“The past months have been quite overwhelming in the Grave camp. Two of our long-time members Mika Lagrén and Tobias Cristiansson have jumped ship and are no longer in the band. There is no bad blood between us and we wish them all the luck in their future endeavors.

However this puts an enormous strain on the band and it’s hard to see what the future holds and if there even is a future. At this moment nothing is for sure and nothing is taken for granted.

A decision has been made to halt all live activities for 2024 since there really is no line up which makes necessary preparations impossible.

The main focus for this year will be to restructure the band if possible and to hopefully write/record and release a long awaited new studio album.

Into the darkness – Into the…

A post shared by the festival’s organizers on the matter can be seen below. The 2024 ‘Maryland Deathfest‘ will be held May 23rd-26th across the stages of the Power Plant, Rams Head Live!, Soundstage and Market Place in Baltimore, MD.
