AUSTIN TERROR FEST 2019 PREVIEW - AND ATF 2018 REVIEW

Austin Terror Fest returns this weekend with a lineup that provides further proof that it’s one of the most exciting annual underground metal fests in the South. Spanning three days—Friday, June 7, through Sunday, June 9—ATF 2019 will take place at Barracuda and Empire Control Room and Garage, venues nestled within Austin’s Red River Cultural District. A broad array of subgenres are represented on the bill by notable acts including Goatwhore, Church of Misery, Pig Destroyer, Integrity, Full of Hell, Indian, Dalek, Bongzilla, Thou, Black Cobra, Alcest and Dark Castle. The schedule is provided below.

Looking in the rearview mirror, ATF 2018 was equally impressive. YOB and Bell Witch offered impressive and captivating doom metal sets, but sludge lords Come to Grief (better known as Grief) stole the show on the doom front with an impassioned and overwhelmingly heavy set.

On the flip side in terms of tempo, Agoraphobic Nosebleed’s belligerent blast attack translated well live for a band that’s historically been a recording-only band. And yes, once again, their drum machine’s drum solo was just as humorous and silly as it has been the few other times they’ve performed. Revived groove metal pioneers Exhorder were undeniably one of the best bands of the fest, and their aggressive sonic assault seemed to be an important step in the New Orleans band’s movement back into the light. Worthy of note, too, was Wayfarer’s free-form melodic yet gruff black metal attack.
