I've been behind local metal band Hemoptysis since I reviewed their debut EP nearly a year ago
. In fact, I picked the neo-thrashers as our automatic bid to South By Southwest this year, and am happy to report the band is playing a showcase at Soho Lounge on Friday, March 19.
While Hemoptysis wait for the chance to impress industry types in Austin they're trying to win the Metal Insider No Label Needed Contest
. You can vote once a day here
through March 8.
Also, check out the above video, which chronicles the making of a video for the band's song "Shadow Of Death." That video should be out within a week or two, by the way, so check back here for an update.
