May 15th, 1993. That was the last time that death metal legends Autopsy played NYC (at The Tilt with Incantation and Vital Remains), so Friday's appearance at the Bell House (5/4) was a long-time coming. The show was one of a pair of dates for the band, who continued on to play Reggie's in Chicago with Cianide the next evening before heading back to California to prepare for Maryland Deathfest. Support came from NJ death metallers Funebrarum (their first NYC show in 6 years), gods of Brooklyn doom Unearthly Trance and crusty DM killers Undergang, the latter of which came all the way from Denmark just to play The Bell House show. Pictures, video and setlists are in this post.
In other news, Unearthly Trance have added another NYC date, this time supporting Whitehorse (!) at their upcoming date at Acheron on June 12th with Batillus. Batillus recently released a new song from their split with Whitehorse, look for Whitehorse's contribution later this week.

Autopsy at Inferno Festival (more by BBG)
Autopsy are on their way to NYC for their first show in 19 years, and it all goes down TONIGHT at The Bell House! Featuring appearances from Funebrarum (their first NYC show in six years), Unearthly Trance, and Denmark's Undergang, the show is the lone date for Autopsy on the East Coast outside of an already-sold-out appearance at Maryland Deathfest. Tickets are still available for this BV-BBG production.... OR you can try your hand at winning one of THREE pairs I have for giveaway. Details are at the bottom of this post.
Undergang are heading across the Atlantic from Denmark to play the show, and the band have added another date happening Saturday night at Saint Vitus (5/5) with Kalopsia (members of Funebrarum) and Tribune. The show goes down at 9PM and is FREE with donation. Nothing beats a free show, so get there and give at the door if you can!
UPDATE: I was just told that this show has been cancelled.
Stream some Kalopsia and Undergang below, along with details on that contest...
Autopsy in LA (more by Adam Murray)
I am beyond proud to present the return of AUTOPSY for their first show in NYC in 19 years! The band will do a pair of east coast dates that will include a stop in NYC on May 4th and another in Chicago on May 5. Look for the band at The Bell House on May 4th, joined by support from Funebrarum (their first NYC show in six years), Unearthly Trance and Undergang. Tickets are on sale for this BV/Order of The Serpent event. The show will be the band's ONLY NYC date, and their last for who knows how long....
Autopsy also plays a sold-out night at Maryland Deathfest and will also head overseas to play the Inferno Festival in Norway over Easter weekend along with Bolt Fest, a UK festival featuring Bolt Thrower, Discharge, Benediction and Vallenfyre.
Crusty-death metal crew Undergang, who recently impressed at a string of dates that included Chaos in Tejas and just returned from a successful European tour with Funebrarum, will make the trek from Denmark (!) for the Brooklyn show. No word on if that will translate into additional shows though... we'll keep you up to date.
All tour dates and a video for the title track from their recent All Tomorrow's Funerals is below...

While I was going hardcore at Emo's, metal and garage were well represented at Red 7 on Thursday. Split across the venue's two stages, the outdoor patio was reserved as a Garage stage with The Spits, The Arrivals, Shellshag, TV Ghost (who are on tour with The Spits), High Tension Wires, and OBN III's, while the indoor stage housed metal from Hooded Menace (who played Union Pool before Texas), Undergang, Acephalix, Bone Sickness, and Mammoth Grinder. Pictures of many of the bands from from both stages at Red 7 are below.
Origin of M
After the show, I met up with Keith and Harriet to trek over to The Broken Neck, a DIY venue hosting an afterparty with Tragedy (who played Europa before Texas) and Origin of M. We arrived just in time, as they were letting one in and one out due to capacity issues. We were able to slide in after a short wait. Origin of M played a crusty hardcore set with some rock style leads (ala Thin Lizzy) and sounded good, though the singer's drunken ranting in Japanese was a bit off-putting/odd. Slamming beer after beer, he loved to crowdsurf almost as much as loved to rip beer-cans apart in his mouth and chew on the aluminum. Yum. Tragedy, as usual, were unbelievable despite a PA system that was clearly DIY (and on the brink of toppling over).
