AUTOPSY og VON til HITS
Autopsy to headline Hole in the Sky's final day
It's with great pride and joy we can announce what we've known since September 2009. Hole in the Sky will be hosting the first Autopsy show in Norway ever. The massively influential San Francisco-based Death Metal pioneers has resurrected to do a few select shows over the course of the summer with Party-San and Hole in the Sky being the European stops.
Autopsy drummer/singer Chris Reifert was a member of legends Death before he, together with Eric Cutler and Danny Coralles, founded Autopsy in 1987. Albums like «Severed Survival» and «Mental Funeral» subsequently made Autopsy one of the most revered Death Metal bands ever, with their downtuned and doomy riffs, memorable artwork and sick lyrics. Playing together for the first time in fifteen years, Hole in the Sky are one of the very few festivals Autopsy will play – be there and witness Death Metal the way it was meant to be.
Comments Autopsy main man Chris Reifert: "Autopsy is pleased to be invading the stage at Hole in the Sky. We are putting 100% of our blood, bones and brains into this band and we are confident that our performance will remind people of how real Death Metal is played.
Thanks to all who have brought us back from the grave. Your dedication will be met with an assault of pure gore soaked brutality. See you then!"
We promised you one surprise act, here is another:
One of THE cult acts in the Black Metal Pantheon, the legend that is VON will perform in Bergen during Hole in the Sky 2010. Their two demos «Satanic Blood» and «Blood Angel» are among the most unique releases in Black Metal ever, songs like «Lamb», «Devil Pig», «Veadtuck» and «Watain» have never been copied or bettered in all their minimalistic, hypnotic glory. Founding members Goat and Venien have decided to reform VON for a select number of shows, with Hole in the Sky being one the few festivals.
Comments the band: Hole in the Sky Festival is a gathering of the Hordes of Norwegian Darkness and Ritual of Chaos, and that in itself is a significant precursor to our involvement and participation. VON is pleased and honored to be included within the ranks of such bands.
VON will perform as special guest on the Wednesday dubbed Invocation together with Rotting Christ, Dead Congregation, Repugnant, Grave Miasma and Urfaust.
