    I figured we should have a thread on your favorte local bands from your area. And by local, I mean bands that still play in the local scene. Like if you're from Des Moines, Slipknot does not count as a local band. So let's begin!

    Mine would have to be both of m friends' bands.

    Beyond the Blight:

    and

    The Hour of Betrayal:


    Yes, I know. Probably not everyone's niche, but still fun to go out to the shows and mosh with them.

    Calgary bands that I dig are:

    Exit Strategy is a pretty cool band. They play techy deathgrind that still has some sweet groove. 7 string content in here.


    Snake Mountain play instrumetal that is both spacey and crushing. They packed it in this year which is too bad cause they were a great band.


    Kataplexis are another death metal band. Tons of groove, brutal vocals and the drummer is a beast.


    I Die Screaming play technical sweepy grind. They are a 3 piece consiting of drums, guitars, vocals and they are pretty cool.


    Caveat play progressive metal. Great musicians, great songs. 3 out of 4 dudes in this band play in Exit Strategy. Caveat also decided to call it a day recently.


    There is a band called Akakor that play crazy fast, complex, crushing deathmetal. They are recording right now and I hope they get some recordings up soon because the videos on their myspace don't do them justice. They have a 6 string and a 7 string guitar player and the bass player plays a 6 string bass and does a shit ton of cool tapping stuff.


    Ahnabith Gish play experimental rock/post-rock. They just recorded a new album that is phenomenal. I have only heard it a few times so far and it will probably be one of my tops for the year.

    Agreed. I played a show with 'em in august. Awesome live show! Wearing their shirt right now actually haha.

    favourite locals: The Synaesthetic Not really metal, but awesome/creepy rock with dual guitar harmonies. I'd recommend "third degree".

    Scale the Summit!

    I don't think they are all from Houston, but they have centralized (I guess you could call it that?) in Houston. And they definitely still play local shows, at less than $10 a ticket!



    There's another band, I wish I could remember their name, they used to open all the Roadrunner metal shows that came to town. They were quite funny and nu-metalish. Their best song was a metal version of the chicken pot pie song.

    We don't have a big metal scene here. If I want to see some good shows I need to go to Montreal (2hrs from here) :p
    At least we have those guys.

    Jean Grey-Technical deathcore. Pretty groovy. myspace.com/jeangreymusic

    DRAH-Weird mix of styles. Most prevalent influences are Meshuggah and Static-X. Sounds awful, but it's sick. myspace.com/drah541

    Atonement-Through the Eyes of the Dead/Whitechapel/All Shall Perish/Behemoth. myspace.com/atonementucne
