ATL Death Fest schedule unveiled

Posted By on Tue, May 21, 2013 at 1:07 PM

Next Tuesday, May 28, the one-night ATL Death Fest will feature 12 bands, including seven out-of-town acts headed to the following weekend's Chaos in Tejas festival in Austin.

ATL Death Fest will be spread out across two venues in the East Atlanta Village, 529 and the Basement. Four of the seven touring acts are from other countries, including Cruciamentum from the U.K., Abigal from Japan, Australian d-beat band Kromosom, and Rotten Sound. The latter is a 20-year Finnish death metal veteran that will most likely steal the night with its headlining performance at 529's tiny showspace. The last band to go on that night will be the Basement's headliners Mangled, a local act with a chance to cement one of the top spots in the local death and thrash metal scene.

This is yet another case of Atlanta being well placed on the tour route to a big festival. If you think about it, there's usually good shows with touring bands before and after SXSW in the Spring and Goner Fest in the fall, such as upcoming shows at the Earl headlined by the Cosmic Psychos (Sept. 26) and Mudhoney (Oct. 2). And, if you think Death Fest isn't enough harsh underground noise for one day, another international band on its way to Chaos, Montreal hardcore weirdos Thee Nodes, play an early in-store appearance around 6 p.m. at Criminal Records.

8:15 - Disable
9:00 - Nomad
9:45 - Kromosom
10:30 - Dead In The Dirt
