Metal Injection Showcase at SXSW 2014

Metal heads will be rejoicing at this year's event as we have seven major metal-geared showcases slated throughout Music Week, kicking things off on Tuesday, March 11th with Pitchfork's Show No Mercy. Both an indoor and outdoor stage will be utilized for this showcase and notable bands include Indian, Sannhet, Kylesa, Psalm Zero, and Power Trip.

Attendees can roll over to Dirty Dog each night, March 12th, 13th, and 14th to catch three more riotous lineups. Relapse Records will present their roster on the 12th that will include Windhand, lady-fronted group Christian Mistress, and Norway's Obliteration.

We are very excited to welcome Metal Injection as a new 2014 showcase presenter who are bringing Scale the Summit, The Ocean, Rivers of Nihil, Felix Martin and more to the table on the 13th. Their sister site, MetalSucks, will return on the 14th with the likes of Animals As Leaders, After the Burial, Ringworm, and Mutoid Man.

On Wednesday the 12th, Austin's Roadhouse Management will combine forces with Nuclear Blast Records to bring stoner metal bands Orchid, Kadavar, Scorpion Child and more to Red 7. We are also welcoming metal blog Invisible Oranges as a presenter this season who will be showcasing Black Tusk, Wild Throne, Yautja and several others.

Seasoned showcase presenter Tone Deaf Touring will close out our week of music on Saturday the 15th at Red Eyed Fly with Spirit Caravan, Iron Reagan, and Australia's King Parrot. Below is a full list of the METAL MANIA that will be taking over SXSW 2014!
