A local band from where im from, got there demo off of my teacher, who is the guitarists mum. Sound a bit like Pantera, Kreator and a bit of Slayer thrown in.

I like em alot, their demo, Ten Knuckle Taunt, is awesome. Give em a listen, wont be a waste of time.

i reread the thread title and laughed at the local band part before i looked again. actually listening to them, they're pretty good. they sound almost like a mix of groove metal and deathcore, but they're actually pretty good.
The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.
