SXSW- Disfigured, Scattered Remains, Vaginal Bear Trap

Sunday night I went out to Headhunters to see the Ossuary Industries SXSW showcase. Disfigured, Scattered Remains and Vaginal Bear Trap, along with a bunch of other good bands put on an awesome show. Disfigured played the inside stage, bursting everyone's eardrums with their take on the death metal genre. They rocked out with some intense vocals and heavy duty instrumentation. It seems that it was an unusual night because their new vocalist was unable to attend so guitarist Mike DeLeon and bassist Adam DeLeon took over vocals. I really got into their set and enjoyed their musical offering. Scattered Remains played inside after them and, while also a death metal band, their vocals were more creepy and unusual sounding. They were extremely active and energetic on stage, jumping around and headbanging all over the place. They really managed to get everyone enthralled and into what they were playing. The awesomely named Vaginal Bear Trap played the outside stage a little later in the evening. More of a grind metal band, I felt they were about creating a wall of sound and an onslaught of music. I only caught part of their set and thus unfortunately missed their lead vocalist, Goretooth. Still, I was kind of blown away by the music and probably should have worn earplugs because I'm sure I lost some of my hearing just from their set. Overall it was a great show and I think everyone had a good time.
