THE OFFICIAL METALSUCKS “GUIDE OF METAL” FOR THE 2011 CMJ MUSIC MARATHON
Hard to believe it’s already the CMJ Music Marathon again; time passes so fucking quickly my brain can’t quite comprehend it. Before we know it it’ll be winter, which means soon enough we’ll be old men and then we’ll be dead, and then humans will flood themselves off this planet into oblivion and we’ll all be dead. But at least we get a week’s worth of cool metal shows first!
You all already know about the MetalSucks / Metal Injection / 1000 Knives CMJ showcase featuring Kvelertak, Skeletonwitch, Barn Burner, Turbid North and Battlecross, Friday, October 21st at Club Europa in Brooklyn (tickets here), right? Did you know that we’re giving away FREE BEER between 6 and 7pm??? It’s true, courtesy of our friends at E One Entertainment. Get there early or you’ll miss out, and get smashed with us in record time. Did you know there are a whole bunch of other metal shows this week, too? After the jump, the official MetalSucks guide to metal at CMJ 2011.
