The first-ever Austin Death Fest will take place between April 27 and 28 at the Mohawk in (you guessed it) Austin, TX. The first four bands to be announced are Tomb Mold, Mortiferum, Outer Heaven, and Phobophilic.
"The goal with Austin Death Fest is to showcase the best contemporary bands in the genre on one of the coolest stages Austin has to offer," said festival founder Jason Dahlke.
"So many of the bands on the lineup are churning out some of the best records in modern death metal and grinding it out in clubs or DIY venues, playing for the die hard fans of the culture. Paying homage to previous Austin festivals such as Chaos in Tejas, I wanted to bring back a festival that got people excited for what's happening currently in the scene and hopefully inspire them to start up their own bands, start attending more local shows, and putting their passion into the scene to help it further grow."
More band are set to be announced soon. Weekend passes are on sale at Early Bird pricing here.
