    My birthday weekend? It think 2015 will be the first year I attend MDF!

    • Now that Chaos In Tejas is dead, I think I might have to take the trip.

      • Deputy Dipshit

        The other one I’d love to go to is Phil’s festival, but it’s a lot easier for me to make it to Maryland than Texas.

        • R.I.P. Chaos in Tejas. The Housecore Festival is pretty cool too though…

          • Did you go last year? How was it?

          • I did go last year! It was pretty well put together (especially for being it’s first year) and brought a lot of bands that otherwise wouldn’t come to Texas. The addition of horror movies to the whole things makes for a pretty entertaining weekend. I’ve done MDF twice and I think I still like it better overall, but it’s only a three hour drive to Austin for me and a metal festival that close is hard to turn down.

          • W.

            I would love to go to Housecore if it wasn’t so expensive.

          • I was afraid of not getting into some events there because of the “priority badgeholder” thing, but I went with a cheaper ticket and had no problems getting in to see the bands I wanted to see.

          • Negrodamus

            That shit has looked amazing in the past…

          • CoreyMitchell

            HHFF is less expensive than MDF.

          • W.

            I wouldn’t be able to make it this year anyway, but will y’all be doing it next year?

      • W.

        Joe, I may have to join you. I think I’ll be graduating with my doctorate a weekend or two before then, so this would be a good way to celebrate.

        • *BRO-FIST*

        • Tyree

          It would great if we all went together and held hands.

          • Deputy Dipshit

            MarylandFlushFest!

          • Steve Smithwick

            They’d need you to hold hands just so they can make sure you don’t skimp out on MDF cigars again!

          • Tyree

            Yeah, the buddy system?

          • Negrodamus

            Oh snap I remember that too.

          • Steve Smithwick

            TYREE HATES CIGARS, CAMARADERIE AND SOLIDARITY. SING IT TO THE HEAVENS.

          • Negrodamus

            Poor Tommy P though.

          • Tyree

            I deserve this.

          • Steve Smithwick

            If we didn’t fuck with you, there’d be no proof that we care whether you live or die.

          • Tyree

            I see 😉

        • Rob M

          ..didnt you once tell me it was faster for you to go to Colorado than to the lower portion of Texas? If so, keep an eye out for a show called Denver Doomfest

          • W.

            Indeed. I really want to hit up the Black Sky Fest in Denver at some point with @tyreegearhart:disqus.

          • Rob M

            Yeah, that looks like its got some potential, and Black Sky Brewery is pretty awesome. Hopefully they can grow that into something.

            Heres last years lineup for Denver Doomfest..though I havent heard anything about them doing it this year, hopefully theyre just taking a year off or something

      • CoreyMitchell

        Hey Joe! What happened with Chaos In Tejas?

        • Hey Corey! Fancy seeing you ’round these parts!

          Timmy Hefner (the man behind Chaos) has said from the beginning that if he couldn’t top the festival each year he would just pull the plug. That’s what he did. The fest is done but he plans on doing occasional one-off Chaos In Tejas sponsored shows.

          • CoreyMitchell

            Hey Joe! Pagilacci (sp???) pointed me in y’all’s direction.

            That sucks about CiT. They always had a nice, diverse line-up every year.

        • Also – I just saw your comment over at MS to Pagliacci is Kvlt. This site has been in existence for all of a week but I am an Austin resident who was planning on going to HHFF. I bet at least one of the Toilet Ov Hell dudes will see you there.

          • CoreyMitchell

            I’m looking forward to meeting you guys. Hit me up for press passes!

          • Rad! Thanks Corey!

    • Mr. Bojangles

      How old are you turning? 87? You old saggy ass deputy. You can’t even catch a 300 pound cat.

      (=^^=)

      • Deputy Dipshit

        Motherfuckin’ 34 next year. It doesn’t even sound right! :

        • Mr. Bojangles

          You old fuck.

          (=^-^=)

          • Deputy Dipshit

            True, but never too old to metal!
            m/m/

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Never too old to fucking metal. I’ll be 33 next year Deputy. Same age as the christ. Can’t wait to get sacrificed!

          • Mr. Bojangles

            You guys are old and you have saggy boobs. I hope your wives dump you and come for a much more handsome man, like Mr. Bojangles.

            ~*~*~*(=^-^=)Mr. Bojangles(=^-^=)*~*~*~

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Shit, try saggy sack.

          • Tyree

            And lots of poops per day.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Shit ton o shits.

          • W.

            I’m not even that old and I typically have 2 to 3 a day.

          • Tyree

            That sounds about average Dubya.

          • W.

            Really? Hmm. I know plenty of people who only poop every couple of days.

          • Negrodamus

            Every couple? My guess is that is bad for you lol

          • W.

            I’m extremely regular, like Gene Hoglan levels of precision when it comes to my morning BM.

          • Negrodamus

            My morning coffee usually helps me out in the morning, and I like to handle business at home after work as well. It’s my throne.

          • Tyree

            Yes Dude, Hahaha.

          • Tyree

            I’ve read that it’s healthy to poo two or three times a day. Constipation is never a good thing dub. Woe, this is such metal conversation.

          • Negrodamus

            Poop lies at the very soul of heavy metal and extreme music.

          • W.

            For some reason, conversations with me almost always end up touching on metal, poop, and facial hair.

          • Tyree

            That’s very manly.

          • Negrodamus

            Some combination of all three would be the trifecta, the hat trick, or the Holy Trinity.

          • and so relevant considering what site we’re on.

          • Ann Coulter’s Flaccid Penis

            I eat a good amount of fiber and go maybe every other day, sometimes once every 3 days. My body’s probably fucked.

          • Negrodamus

            Two sounds average, three, excessive. Sometimes I just poo once in a day.

          • Tyree

            Fiber buddy.

          • Negrodamus

            Lately instead of getting fast food for lunch five days a week I have been getting the all fruit and veggie Jamba Juice. See how long it holds up, lol

          • Mr. Bojangles

            I pooped on your wife’s face last night.

            ~*~*~*(=^-^=)Mr. Bojangles(=^-^=)*~*~*~

          • Mr. Bojangles

            I don’t know what that is. Master cut off my sack when I was a wee baby.

            ~*~*~*(=^-^=)Mr. Bojangles(=^-^=)*~*~*~

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            You poor pussy.

          • Mr. Bojangles

            My lack of testosterone has allowed me to plan better for world domination. You won’t see the end of Mr. Bojangles!

            ~*~*~*(=^-^=)Mr. Bojangles(=^-^=)*~*~*~

          • Deputy Dipshit

            Mega saggy sack, it’s like I’m holding a couple tons of coal in my beanbag.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Truth.

          • KJM

            You whippersnappers need to get off my lawn(i.e. 47 yrs old)!!!

          • Tyree

            Ignignokt speaks the truth.

          • KJM

            The innocent shall suffer, bigtime.

          • TrickleDownTacoRiff

            sweet, another old fart?

          • KJM

            Nah, just Twitter @KerrAvon666

          • TrickleDownTacoRiff

            Cool. I asked cause I didn’t see you on Joes other project, Respect and Honor on FB. Its worth a visit…and if you don’t do FB you can create your current profile in about 2 minutes.

          • i wasn’t on FB either, but i made a fake profile just to join.
            worth every penny.

          • TrickleDownTacoRiff

            now that’s whats up…

        • Negrodamus

          I just turned 32 and felt a little old.

      • TIM WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO YOU

        • Mr. Bojangles

          Who is Tim? This is Mr. Bojangles.

          • Bozlinger

            I like new Tim…went rogue

          • KJM

            (offers Mr. Bojangles some tuna)

          • Mr. Bojangles

            Maow.

            ~*~*~*(=^-^=)Mr. Bojangles(=^-^=)*~*~*~

  • Mr. Bojangles

    Mr. Bojangles doesn’t like Maryland. Mr. Bojangles would like to exterminate Maryland.

    • Lysa Morgan

      but, but, maryland LOVES Mr Bojangles and has this lovely feather *waves feather enticingly*

      • Mr. Bojangles

        maow?

        • Lysa Morgan

          *scratches ears*

  • Cock of Steele

    Goddamnit I’ll actually be on the East Coast at that time, just in my A school, and not being able to go to metal fests.

    • Mr. Bojangles

      Does A stand for Anus?

      (=^-^=)

      • Cock of Steele

        No that’s B school.

  • Paris Hilton

    I’m actually really amazed Metal Church is still around after all these years

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      They’ve gone through so many line-up changes too.

    • KJM

      Saw them 2 nights in a row opening for Anthrax on the ‘Among The Living’ tour.

    • Between The Buried & Smee

      They’re still fairly good live and I still jam s/t now and then.

  • Tyree

    Thanks for posting this Joe! This list is mind-blowing. Awww, can’t wait for this. Portal & Impetuous Ritual! I keep trying to think of the main bands I want to see and list them out in my comment, but seriously I want to see all of these bands. Suffering Mind & Lycanthrophy is some blistering grind that I’m looking forward too. Fuck!

    • Negrodamus

      I was just talking with fromwisdomtohate about seeing Portal, and I was jealous of him and I will be jealous of you.

      • Tyree

        Should be scary as hell. Even if they do play in the sunlight.

  • The Devil

    You heard it first (via MDF Facebook) on Toilet ov Hell.

    • God

      *waits for MS to steal the news from this site*

      • Tyree

        They have not put the MDF list up yet. We shall see if they follow our lead or not.

        • FeelTheDarkness

          Too busy writing about Emmure

        • They’ll probably wait for a while to just to make a point that they’re not pulling from us.

        • The Devil

          Well, you should consider telling Vince that Toilet ov Hell got the scoop on that shit like a fucking ice cream parlor if they do.

        • Christian Molenaar

          Imagine going to MetalSucks and reading a post that says “Source: Toilet ov Hell” at the bottom.

          • Tyree

            SUCCESS!

        • Paris Hilton

          Where did the flushing schtick even come from? Was it entersandman or Riotact666?

          • Tyree

            I thought entersandman started it, but I could be wrong.

          • Paris Hilton

            I kinda figured so too. The guy did write some funny shit sometimes, gotta admit

          • free Tim Lambesis! Tim didn’t kill anyone, FACT!

            *flushes dive-bar band down the filthiest toilet of hell!!

          • KJM

            I remember seeing it first at Blabbermouth.

          • Negrodamus

            I have heard entersandman, I think Master of Puppets is old as fuck, too.

  • geddy

    It’s a good feeling – knowing that DRI is still out there.

    • Between The Buried & Smee

      Still kicking ass too. Their live shows put their old, out of shape contemporaries like Slayisn’t, MegaDank, and Metallican’t Write Good Music to shame.

  • Bozlinger

    Looks sick, and btw, cunts, I didn’t give tim drugs

    • Steve Smithwick

      Somebody fucking did. It wasn’t me either, for the record.

      I mean, I would give Tim drugs, I just haven’t had the opportunity.

  • FeelTheDarkness

    Neurosis,Melt Banana,Wolf Brigade and D.R.I.!!!!!

    • Tyree

      I’m really curious to see Wolfbrigade. I’ve never seen them live, I’d imagine they put on a intense show.

      • FeelTheDarkness

        I seen them with Guided Cradle and Pisschrist in Leipzig a few years back,good shit

        • Tyree

          Nice! Pisschrist is awesome.

      • Rob M

        Problem is..I know they’ll stick them at the Soundstage which means I’ll probably miss them. I didnt even make it to that venue this year

        • Tyree

          Yeah, you’re probably right about that. I did see Extiction of Mandkind, some of Excruciating Terror, and some of Unholy Graves this year at Soundstage.

          Welcome by the way.

          • Rob M

            Thanks for sending the link

          • Tyree

            Rob, you are a fan of Funebrarum right? I thought I remembered you posting a youtube video of them on MS once,

          • Rob M

            Oh hell yeah…fucking killer band. Saw them last time they played MDF as well and they totally crushed it

  • Stockhausen

    0 flushes, would go.

  • KJM

    So much better than the lame N.E. Metal/Hardcore Fest.

  • Lysa Morgan

    metal church? i bought one of their cds while blackout drunk on cinco de mayo. drunk me LOVES sober me!

  • Call the Slambulance

    That’s a real purty list.

  • Lysa Morgan

    Joe has a nice friendly smile and looks like the kinda guy that would be fun to grab a refreshing beverage with.
    #thrashfacts
    Did I do that correctly?

    • Deputy Dipshit

      I think you’re getting the hang of this!

      Instead of ignoring their repeated visits and knocks on her door, Lysa invites the Jehovah witness’ in for coffee and stimulating conversation.
      #LysaFax

  • Kevin Nash’s Jackknife

    I would go just for DRI, Metal Church, and Vallenfyre.

  • Rob M

    Hell..Im going for about 20 of those bands as of right now..especially fucking Bulldozer

  • Nosferatu

    So have all the cool kids moved here?
