Revelations of Death Fest

Recommended

Hawthorne Theatre (map) Southeast
Sat., July 14, 5 p.m. 2012 All Ages

$20-25

Legendary gore-mongers Autopsy, who have apparently never set foot on a stage in Portland, make attending day two of the Revelations of Death fest a no-brainer. The band's reformation has been celebrated and their most recent releases, Macabre Eternal and The Tomb Within, hold up nicely against the classics. Another treat for seasoned death metal ears is San Fran's Vastum. The band's only release, Carnal Law, is as old-school, trudging, and brutal as they come. Carnal sounds like Cannibal Corpse's The Bleeding played at half speed, without all the violence toward ladies. Besides, who would want to offend the fairer sex when (A) Leila Abdul-Rauf is in the band, and her growl is scarier than any dudes playing tonight, and (B) locals Murderess and Dr. Loomis are also in the building, ripping female-helmed, snarling crust and thrash?
