WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

Tech N9ne

Oct. 27 • Bogart's

Rolling Stone recently dubbed Tech N9ne “the hardest-working rapper,” and this calendar year is potent proof of that assertion.     

Dopapod

Oct. 25 • Madison Theater

 The quartet has apparently never met an influence they didn’t like or couldn’t use; a Dopapod set careens wildly from Afro Funk groove to Metal volume to Prog complexity to Electro bounce.  

Deftones with Avenged Sevenfold & Ghost B.C.

Oct. 6 • U.S. Bank Arena

 After the dynamic range of 2000’s White Pony, Deftones were free to write their own creative ticket, incorporating experimental flourishes of Alt Metal, Art Rock, Prog, Psych, Shoegaze, Post Hardcore and any number of other stylistic elements into their musical mix.  

Windhand

Doom Metal five-piece Windhand is still a very nascent project, but it has a good shot at becoming a big name in its niche, since top-notch Metal label Relapse already signed the band in March.   

Anthrax

April 7 • Bogart's

With creator and undeniable foundation of the group, rhythm guitarist Scott Ian, Anthrax is reminiscent of well-run sports team, a team who has persevered through trades, losses to free agents and retirement to continually be an elite staple within the league.   

Intronaut

Feb. 21 • Bogart's

For a Metal band more taken with exploring the heavenward than wreaking destruction on Earth, Habitual Levitations (Instilling Words with Tones) makes an especially sound title for an Intronaut album.   

As I Lay Dying

Nov. 30 • Madison Theater

There is something to be said for a Metal band that can incorporate its religious beliefs into the music without coming off as cliché or pompous. San Diego Metalcore outfit As I Lay Dying has been one of those bands.  

The Sword

Nov. 10 • Madison Theater

Hating on the haters is one of those hobbies musicians will never get sick of. With “Execrator” off its latest album, Apocryphon, Heavy Metal four-piece The Sword climbs into this increasingly packed clubhouse.   

Halestorm

Sept. 7 • Bogart's

This year has already been a huge one for Halestorm. In February, the song “Here’s to Us” was performed on Glee and the band’s sophomore album, The Strange Case of... was released in April, hitting Billboard’s Top 20 in its first week.   

Torche

June 19 • Taft Theatre

  While Metal shows are havens for certain physical behaviors — headbanging, throwing the horns, grasping for an invisible orange during a particularly juicy guitar solo — smiling while you're playing is not one of them. But that hasn't stopped Steve Brooks. Torche's ringleader doesn't just crack a hint of a happy face during concerts but practically beams.
