St. Madness Brings a Los Angeles Music Award Back to Phoenix

Beloved local metal quartet St. Madness has been stirring the pot of metal insanity for about 20 years, and you usually won't know what to expect from them, especially at a live show. But anyone who has met lead vocalist Prophet -- a.k.a. Patrick Flannery -- knows that the band values a little thing called consistency.

Consistent stability within the growing local metal scene. Steady evolution in St. Madness' records. And reliable love and support for his metal comrades, shown through everything from an abundance of charity shows to support for the next generation of local bands.
