Last weekend, a slavering horde of patch-jacketed misfits descended upon the fair city of Baltimore in search of sex, drinks, and metal (mostly the latter two, if we're being honest). Their mission was by and large successful; as they drained the city of its beer and their wallets at the Mexican bootleg T-shirt stall, the metal legions performed their most beloved yearly ritual with a smile. Crowds were surfed, water guns were discharged into the parched audience, bodies hurled themselves from stages, and as always, a chicken suit was worn by one very dedicated, very smelly man.

Several days later, the bangovers have faded,our hearing has (mostly) been restored, and Charm City is now free of its seasonal plague of long-haired locusts. Whilst we were there, though, we were treated to an array of jaw-dropping performances from some of heavy metal's finest. Photographer Josh Sisk went undercover amidst the heathens to capture evidence of the many musical highs of this year's Maryland Deathfest.
