Impalers made one of our favorite 7″s this year; Chaos in Tejas was the best heavy fest (no offense Fun Fun Fun)
The Impalers @ Emo's for Chaos in Tejas (more by BBG)
We just posted our "Year in Heavy" over at Brooklynvegan, BBG's list of the best heavy music that happened in 2011. Scroll down to the "Best EPs, mini-LPs, 7"s" section and you'll notice a shout to Austin's own The Impalers. Listen to their 2-song 7" at Bandcamp. Check out more pics from their Chaos in Tejas set at Emo's, HERE.
Speaking of Chaos, it also made the list, #1 in fact under Favorite heavy live shows of 2011. Fun Fun Fun Fest got an honorable mention, not because it didn't deserve to be higher, but because as BBG notes in the post, he "purposely left out Fun Fun Fun Fest 2011, easily a top 5 contender, due to its larger scope as opposed to being primarily hardcore/metal-centric." This particular list is mainly about hardcore and metal. Check it out.
