Top 9 Metal Shows in Phoenix This November
It can be easy to miss unless you're looking for it, but there's a lot of metal in the Valley, locals and touring acts alike. That's why we're looking for it.
Here's a list of nine shows--the 10th was Thursday's Testament/Killswitch Engage/Lamb of God/Huntress bonanza--you must see this month, as compiled by our Metal Mondays columnist, Lauren Wise.
3 Inches of Blood, Battlecross, Revocation, Diamond Plate, and Death Angels - Club Red, Tempe - November 9
Canada-based 3 Inches of Blood is always fantastic live; they combine a sense of medieval lyrical imagery, and a super energetic stage show. Plus, they are influenced a ton by the New Wave of British Heavy Metal and '70s guitar-driven rock bands.
Nine Inch Nails - U.S. Airways Center - November 9
You all know who NIN is by now. Those into industrial metal will definitely dig Trent Reznor's return, but unless you're a die-hard fan you probably won't want to splurge for the ticket prices.NIN
