12 Best Metal Concerts in Phoenix This November

November brings the best of both worlds to the Valley of the Sun -- temperatures have finally fallen below 90 degrees, and some of our favorite metal band's touring schedules are still in full swing. It's that time of year where we can leave those sweaty mosh pits and emerge into some crisp cool air.

The season for giving is bringing a bounty of metal shows around Metro Phoenix, thanks to an array of locals and major international legends. As such, we're on the lookout for the best upcoming shows.

That's why we compile a monthly list of the best metal and hard rock concerts happening at venues around the Valley during the month of November. There's metal vets like Judas Priest, Slayer and Eyehategod; to Thanksgiving food drive shows and extremely heavy local bills; to a CD release show by local act Singularity. And I must say; you would think it's October with all the costumed cautionary tales scheduled, like Old Lines, Green Jelly, and Nekrogoblikon.
