This past weekend, we hosted the 2nd annual All Local episode of Metal Shop. It was around this time last year that our good friend and colleague, Robert "BJ" Annette passed away. Each week, BJ would drive all the way up to Seattle for the sole reason of sharing a local concert calendar for the Metal Shop listeners. He exuded love for the metal scene and was always nothing but positive through and through. BJ was the former vocalist of both I-Rot and Dying To Bleed. In his honor, we declared that we would dedicate one episode per year solely to local metal. Go ahead and take a look at the playlist on the main page and let us know what you think. And yes, we would love to hear your band! Send us what ya got and we would be stoked to review it and maybe play it on the show.
For now, check out this full album upload of a really sweet local band called Blood and Thunder. Keep it local, keep it brutal!
