Austin is gearing up for the first-ever Austin Death Fest on April 27th and 28th, 2024, at the Mohawk. The lineup includes Mortiferum, Outer Heaven, Tomb Mold, and Phobophilic, with more to be announced. The festival aims to revive the local death metal scene. Early Bird weekend passes for both days are available now. Single-day passes will be available at a later date. 

Festival founder, Jason Dahlke of Left To Rot commented:

“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. 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.”
