A389 Eleventh Anniversary Bash This Week!

You know how we at Decibel go all batshit for just about everything Baltimore label A389 releases?  The name Noisem mean anything to you?  Full of Hell?  Ilsa?  Yeah.
Last year, we got our lazy asses out for the label’s 10th anniversary bash, including three days and multiple venues of high-quality mash-ups of death metal, doom, hardcore and noise.  This year, many of those extremely extreme acts return for another round.  Starting tomorrow night, Baltimore gonna get loud.

Below, you’ll find the lineups for each day and venue, this year’s official event poster (designed by Ringworm vocalist Human Furnace), a link to A389’s FREE mixtape sampler of the performers’ music (including brand new tracks by Ilsa and Genocide Pact), and some video footage of last year’s show (hosted by Hate5Six.com).  Also, the Metro Gallery will be hosting a mini-exhibit of all A389 Bash posters from all years, including the ’07, ’08 and ’09 posters that were never before made public!

Damn… that’s a lot of great shit for one little D-blog post.  Support!
