For the first time in South By’s history bands from Cuba will make their way across the gulf to perform in Austin. The select Cuban bands are representative of the intense metal scene that has taken hold over the past two decades. The line-up consists of Cuban metal bands Ancetor, [Escape](http://schedule.sxsw.com/2013/events/event_MS20216) and Agonizer. From outside of the island there is Del Valle Centro, Mexico’s Motor, Brazil’s Eminence and Attomica. Each band will bring to the table their own unique spin on heavy metal.
