Now more than ever, there is lot of metal -- from comedy to thrash to black to grindcore -- getting slung in and around Metro Phoenix, thanks to concerts and gigs by locals and touring acts alike. As such, Up on the Sun's resident metal scribe, Lauren Wise, is on the lookout for the best upcoming shows.

That's why we had her compile a monthly list of the 10 best metal and hard rock concerts happening at venues around the Valley during the month of June. From the brutal Phoenix Death Fest to local success story City in the Sea, to internationally beloved Unearth and "hipster" black metal newbies Deafheaven.

Check out our comprehensive concert listings here.

Nashville Pussy - June 4 - Yucca Tap Room

Guaranteed sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll abound when you go see Nashville Pussy. The psychobilly, sleaze rock band garnered its name from Ted Nugent's introduction to "Wang Dang Sweet Poontang" -- so that should be enough to show what kind of a band they are. Plus, the band's newest album came out this year, Up The Dosage.
