Miguel "Goregrinder" Medina


Having started my booking journey in early 2004 I have slowly worked my way up the ranks as a staple promoter of the underground death metal scene of Chicago. The first fest under my name being the Chicago Metal Devastation Fest which ran 4 editions from 2005-2008. Shortly after that I tried my hand at a small scale outdoor DIY fest which didn't fair too well with the Barnyard Brutality Fest in 2009 so I went back to the drawing board and remained dormant for a couple of years.  

I then scaled back and reduced the amount of shows per year while still running a very succesful yearly birthday party show through 8 of the last 10 years. In 2014 I made a triumphant return back to the fest scene with the newly minted and successful start of the Chicago Domination Fest. With 6 years of CDF now currently under my belt I am now ready to bring the 7th edition in 2020. Having a grand total of fifteen year's booking/promoting expierience my ultimate goal is to continue the exponential growth of CDF for many year's to come and elevate it to a world class extreme metal event likes of which are generally only seen overseas..
