Thrasher Magazine’s Deathmatch showcase at SXSW featured some of the hardest bands in contemporary hard music. From NYHC legends Sick of It All to Texas crossover mosh crew Power Trip to technical wizards The Dillinger Escape Plan, there was something for everyone to raise devil horns to in between sweet seshes on the half pipe. Noisey photography powerhouse Steven Michael Rudd braved the pit to bring us some highlights from the gig at Gypsy Lounge on March 21st in Austin, Texas.
