“I am very happy to be able to bring Toledo Deathfest back in 2023 with one of the most insane lineups we’ve ever had. This festival has come from being local bands at small venues to a two-stage festival featuring bands from around the country thanks to the incredible support of everyone who attends each year. Thank you to everyone who has supported Toledo Deathfest and I look forward to seeing everyone again on June 3rd!”Â adds

Highlights of the confirmed bands include headlinersÂ Signs of the SwarmÂ with their slamming brutal chugs, to black metal-tinged frenzies and groove-driven downtempo bursts of aggression, the band cohesively captures a vile sound spreading across the genreâs various styles.Â The ConvalescenceÂ is one of the USA’s unstoppable tour de force, touring Europe in 2022 with Chelsea Grin along with their latest singleÂ “No Survivors” ft. Scott Ian Lewis of Carnifex,Â that has fans demanding more and more. Emerging from the darkest and most desolate areas of the Midwest,Â Casket RobberyÂ creates its own signature style of death metal by infusing horror and occult themes. Their trademark huge riffs and unstoppable grooves create the unrelenting, brutally catchy, and eerie sound that onlyÂ Casket RobberyÂ is known for.Â Summoner’s Circle, hailing from Dandridge, TN, is a six-piece theatrical metal band that blends elements of doom, death, black and progressive metal into what they refer to as simply Epic Metal.

About:Â Toledo Deathfest was originally created in 2009 as a way to bring bands in Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan together once a year and showcase their music to the local scene. It has continued as an annual festival featuring Local, Regional, and Underground Touring artists. In 2021 Festival Promoter Keith Wampler (The Legend Agency/The Convalescence) decided to expand the festival to multiple stages and to feature larger artists as well as a variety of underground acts with plans to grow the festival even more each year with Jungle Rot headlining 2021, Malevolent Creation headlining 2022, and now Signs of the Swarm headlining 2023.
