SXSW 2017 Metal Showcases (Updated 2/27)


We are about two weeks out from another SXSW and it is time to assemble "The List." This year I have been dreading putting things together, simply due to the lack of metal in this years official showcases, but also the absence of metal pre-parties and bands playing about town. Now that being said, with the timeline quickly approaching, I figured we must get the ball rolling so you have some kind of guide to get you to the shows that you might be interested in. 

Admittedly, some of these band that may have been marked metal, or even in say the Metal Injection Showcase, I am in the process of researching and listening to, many are not even 'metal' exactly, but heavier in nature, I guess, or somehow someone thought they fit the aesthetic of our genre, so Ill let this first run speak for itself. 

If you have a showcase, show, band, or know of something I missed, be sure to send it to me via FB or direct e-mail chuck@krox.com and I will add it to the list!! Enjoy!!

If you didn't notice I dropped the SXSW list for metal shows yesterday, and it's not too long...it is a cyclical and I think our bands and labels are finding value elsewhere when it comes to promotions, but we'll see as the conference draws closer if a few others are released...hope = high.

Good adds this week, probably two of the best records fo the year, Power Trip and Junius, both I've been playing a bit, but officially go in today! Enjoy!

NO CONTROL Radio Replay 2/24/17

The last show of February, and that means we will be looking forward to SXSW the next couple of shows, but the metal pickins for the conference is pretty slim this year. That's not defeatist or hyperbole, there really is an absence of metal bands we had seen even five or so years ago coming this year, yet I will do my best to keep you in the know on what you might want to check out.

This week's show jammed as usual, you guys picked out a ton of good tunes and the new music is piling in nicely. New stuff from Warbringer, Havok, Suicide Silence, Royal Thunder, Pallbearer, Mors Principum Est, Fit for an Autopsy, Demon Hunter, Mastodon, All That remains and old school Type O Negative, Pantera, Judas Priest, Prong, Sacred Reich, Devildriver and more!

Metal News: stagehand dies post A7X show, Alex Webster worm, and Corey Taylor new book

NO CONTROL Radio Replay 2/17/17

It feels like the quiet before the storm, literally since there are storms hitting this weekend, but figuratively with SXSW on the horizon just a few weeks away. I will be compiling the metal artists for you and giving some decent previews of what to look out for during the conference this year as I always do. The Metal is a little lacking so far, but you never know what will happen, i mean Metallgaga just did the Grammys, so who knows!

This week we revisited a bunch of albums that had early singles like Power Trip, Within the Ruins, Suicide Silence, Mastodon and Dark Tranquility, but also scored new tunes from Junius, All That Remains, Havok, Pallbearer, Demon Hunter and Fit for an Autopsy, plus classics from Megadeth, Suicidal Tendencies, Testament, Amon Amarth, Deicide and Danzig.

Metal News: Attila fight security, Metallica gets apology, Maiden baby, and Trish Doan passes

I have returned from the edge of the Earth to keep the metal train rolling. I know last week you didn't get a replay or anything, I will be in the studio bringing the metals at least until SXSW when I take another Friday to enjoy the conference with the rest of the industry. Speaking of which, I will have my list of metal shows coming again soon, a little light this yearm, but nonetheless you will have a guide soon.

Musically we had a ton of new tunes from Jasta, Benighted, Warbringer, Havok, Darkest Hour, Mastodon, Fit for an Autopsy, Pallbearer, Six Feet Under and plenty of requested stuff from Celtic Frost, Sleep, Baroness, Metallica, DIO, Psycroptic and more!
