What are some of the better local acts in your area?

They can have some sort of deal or whatever, just as long as they're relatively local.

Tribal Rose

I was actually in this band, and great friends with the guitarist and drummer, but I left before we got the bassist (we actually switched playing bass guitar for the longest), or the demos. "Tribute" (not a Tenacious D cover) and "Forgiven" are my favorites, and are also songs I helped develop.

The second song i okay, I was there when it was newer, and it's got a good vibe, but it's a little too metalcore for me in some parts, but it still has a decent solos, the verse isn't bad. And the last one is new to me, good, but I don't like the vocals much.

Then there's, The Prmoetheans

Great metal band. I'm good friends with the bassist, and they're a great act to see live. "Gasoline IV" is one of their older songs, but the current version is the newest demo with the background vocals, and "Darl" is just great.

So, what about you guys?

Violet Star, a very, very, VERY good Rock Band, what you call "Masters of Harmony". Unfortunately they don't update their Purevolume page, but if you watch it for awhile they'll post some vids.

There's a cool band called Raise Up Roofbeams. There really good, and they use a bunch of really weird and random instruments in their songs. But none of you metalheads would like them.

The Love and Terror Cult is a band that's local here in Mississauga and i think they're gonna make it big some day. They're really, really good. If you like hardcore and death metal check them out.

They're in my sig.

Alcorine is from Bloomington, Indiana, which is near where I used to live.
The other two are from Habersham County, Georgia, though they've since moved, which is where I live when I'm not at university.

The K-Macks Endeavor is the best, I think.
Can't stop the signal.

Holy.....shit.....

I just got back from this loca show I went to, to see two of my friend's bands, and there was this band, called Soup, one of the best fucking jam bands I've ever heard.

Their Myspace is a really good look into their style, but like every good jam band, they're utterly amazing live. Seriously, I was FLOORED, and I'm hardly ever floored by bands these days.

Sure, I have bandsthat I absolutely love, and I'm floored once in a while, but this band is just...


Man, just listen.

Forever Mourne, a local black metal band, and No Souls Lost, a death metal band, are both really good. Check out their Decapitated cover, it rules. I'm too lazy to post links, find them yourself. Also, if I may be so bold, my band is good (I think). Check out the link in my sig.
