Raleigh Deathfest: Gross Reality, Eldritch Horror, Necrocosm, Abhorrent Deformity, Outliar, Colossal Abyss, Hell is Here, Datura, Origin of Disease

When: Sat., June 18, 4:30 p.m. 2016

Though certainly not as loaded with legends as the recent Maryland Deathfest, this homegrown counterpart offers a solid slab of brutal stuff. With revived veterans Gross Reality and Eldritch Horror topping the bill, the nine-band Raleigh Deathfest pays tribute to the old guard with the former’s vicious thrash and the latter’s surging death metal. Relative newcomers, meanwhile, offer fresh mutations. Necrocosm’s melodic death metal recalls icons like At the Gates but stands on the strength of its own riffs. Abhorrent Deformity delivers pummeling fury. Datura fuses several subgenres into a brutal, unpredictable monster. Also, Outliar, Colossal Abyss, Hell Is Here, and Origin of Disease. —Bryan C. Reed
