For fans of GA metal bands

I'm tired of hearing people bitch about how there is no good metal music coming out of Atlanta or the surrounding areas! This is for people who are fans of metal bands that hail from the state of Georgia (I ALSO CONNECTED A FEW BANDS THAT HAVE FOUNDING MEMBERS WHO RESIDE IN THIS STATE AND PLAY SHOWS HERE ALL THE TIME, SUCH AS TORCHE, ETC).

Bored on a Friday night? Tune in to WREK 91.1 fm for some metal. Or stream the show at

Wanna discuss shows that are coming up, etc?

    I've heard some great local bands when they've opened for larger acts at shows I've attended. We do have a decent metal scene in Atlanta!

    Hit up the Mangled page and let's vote Atlanta's Mangled Logo as the primary pic.

    I thought people complained about Atlanta's overwhelming ghetto culture as the reason for little to no metal being down there....

    this is a group, not a wikipedia article. if the creator doesn't want shitty bands in here regardless of whether or not they're metal, then they can do that. big fucking deal.

    I'm sorry I upset you, Mr. 25 year old. I didn't realize I was acting like I was bestowing "metalness" by deciding what artists to connect to this group. You being upset that metalcore isn't included in a "GA METAL Bands" connected artists page to a group that only has 24 people in it is ridiculous. Most people do not consider those bands to be metal, even look at the tags on the pages of those bands. Have fun listening to Devildriver.

    I am sorry, but I refuse to add The Chariot and Norma Jean to this list. It does not count. Also, it will just connect this group to the artist page and will attract people who listen to crap. Somehow, whitechapel has already leaked into our charts and I'm not aiming for more of that crap on our charts. This group is supposed to be a celebration of metal bands from this state that contribute to a general scene. Norma Jean and The Chariot are outside of this.

    I think the issue is that metalcore is different from metal. The "core" suffix wouldn't be needed if that were not the case. Becoming the Archetype is added because the group has moved past metalcore and into death metal. Also, as a general rule of thumb, if it is not in Encyclopedia Metallum and is well known enough to have an entry, there is probably a reason for that. I also don't want to add those bands and then our charts turn to complete shit. I hope this answers your questions.

    I'm sure those kinds of bands get enough attention already

    Sadistic Ritual is already a connected artist. You can see the full list if you click the "Connected Artists" link. It just links to the artist's page.

    therothstanator are you saying we were already connected or that you need a video to connect us?
