Autopsy Kills At Austin's Chaos In Tejas

Death metal pioneers, Autopsy have made only a couple of festival appearances since their reformation in 2010. From 1995 to last year, ravenous gore fiends could receive Autopsy’s filthy sounds and images only through proxy groups containing Autopsy members such as The Ravenous and Abscess. With the release of “Macabre Eternal,” the group made another festival appearance for this year (the only appearance at this time) at one of the word’s biggest punk music festivals, Chaos in Tejas.

Yet another multi-venue festival in Austin, Texas, Chaos in Tejas celebrates punk in all its various forms. 130 bands including Cro-Mags, Doom, Killing Joke, Converge, Hooded Menace, Lärm, The Gates of Slumber and Orange Goblin performed in the festival’s seventh installment. Although not all acts were punk oriented, punk and its offspring of “core” acts were most numerous. Autopsy’s affection for grind fit well with the precluded power violence and core-grounded acts.

With a bill including bands unfamiliar to many fans of Autopsy, a $35-dollar entrance fee, and Autopsy’s prolonged absence; I assumed this show would have a small turnout. Just like SXSW in March, Chaos in Tejas venues swell to capacity. Every square inch of the venue’s outdoor stage and smoking patio was filled with raggedy-patched punks and longhairs. Maneuvering through the outskirts of the pit area proved difficult enough, but finding a place up front to take pictures proved near impossible.

Shooting the first band of the night means feeling out the crowd. I’m always a bit timid during the first shoot and my photos of Iron Lung reflect an unsuccessful trial run. The lack of personal space was bad enough, but crowd surfers and stage divers made photo positioning near impossible, at least at first. I became bolder with later sets by shoving my way through the crowd, using karate stances to maintain a base when the crowd became especially raucous and tending to my camera instead of providing a hand
or head for stage divers to land.

Iron Lung’s style defines the term power violence. The two-man group alternated blistering grind and crossover with sludgy, down tempo passages. Their singer’s tough hardcore vocal approach wasn’t to this writer’s liking, but their energy made a big impression, although without the same rousing effect as what the audience felt. I had never seen a band or show incite so much rowdiness. In addition to stage diving that I rarely witness at metal show (I believe the last one was Testament in 1995), I witnessed a guy hanging from the rafters like a god damn monkey.

Innumerable Forms was the only death metal band of the evening. The Massachusetts band played slow and heavy with reverence to iron boot sloshers Incantation, Grave and of course, Autopsy. IF only recorded one EP, so I’m not sure what material they used to fill their set. Their live sound was not as raw as their recording, which allowed a greater sense of audibility. Kudos goes to their singer for wearing a Paradise Lost long sleeve. He represented a depressive style mostly, if not fully, overlooked at this show.

After IF’s pace coagulated the blood of its onlookers, Extortion’s blitzkrieg attack was like a Bunsen burner to the crowds’ veins. Not much information exists about this aussie band’s origins on the Net, but apparently they’ve made a considerable sized dent into the world-wide punk scene because I heard many people say they were there to see the group…and the crowd went wild (phrase of the night). The group’s energy had much to do with the crowds’ reaction. Each song contained a million notes, but lasted only seconds. These kinds of songs offer little in terms of hooks and melody, but the band’s quick bass lines brought something to remember.

Taking the stage right before Autopsy, Citizens Arrest marked a good time to retreat from the heat before Autopsy’s onslaught. The NYC band played typical NYC hardcore with meaty, ringing chords and punk sensibilities. They occasionally played a catchy groove, but most of their sound owed to music typical to this style. Citizens Arrest was the closest band of the night to bearing to typical hardcore, and in that regard, were the least interesting artist of the night. More...

"We promised you one surprise act, here is another: One of THE cult acts in the Black Metal Pantheon, the legend that is VON will perform in Bergen during Hole in the Sky 2010. Their two demos 'Satanic Blood' and 'Blood Angel' are among the most unique releases in Black Metal ever, songs like 'Lamb,' 'Devil Pig,' 'Veadtuck,' and 'Watain' have never been copied or bettered in all their minimalistic, hypnotic glory. Founding members Goat and Venien have decided to reform VON for a select number of shows, with Hole in the Sky being one the few festivals."

Comments the band: "Hole in the Sky Festival is a gathering of the Hordes of Norwegian Darkness and Ritual of Chaos, and that in itself is a significant precursor to our involvement and participation. VON is pleased and honored to be included within the ranks of such bands. VON will perform as special guest on the Wednesday dubbed Invocation together with Rotting Christ, Dead Congregation, Repugnant, Grave Miasma and Urfaust."
