Mournful Congregation
For years, any summer underground-metal happening NYC could muster felt like a consolation prize for those unable to attend the mighty Maryland Deathfest, held every Memorial Day weekend in Baltimore. But Martyrdoom, which launches its third annual installment this year, is emerging as a respectable contender, thanks to an impressive crop of international talent. The 2014 fest—stretching across five jam-packed nights—includes Australia's ultra-desolate Mournful Congregation (June 27, July 1), Finland's bestial Sargeist (June 28) and the Czech Republic's epic, esoteric Cult of Fire (June 30).
