ACHTUNG, MAGGOTS! Legendary death metal pioneers AUTOPSY will make their first ever appearance in the Pacific Northwest THIS WEEKEND at Portland, Oregon's Hawthorne Theater as part of a two day festival called Revelations of Death! This is an all-ages event and the organizer's did a commendable job keeping ticket prices affordable ($12) so don't pass out early under a bridge and miss this or you will truly never forgive yourself. I've said it before and I'll say it again: if Autopsy didn't actually invent death metal when they dropped Iommi's chocolate bong in Lombardo's peanut butter coffin, they undoubtedly dragged this bastard genre to its most gruesome heights and gory depths. Today they remain the most inventive, dedicated, honest and relevant death metal band in the so-called underground. Prepare to be bludgeoned! Did I mention that GHOUL is headlining on Friday the 13th? Some heads are gonna roll...
