SXSW 2008MetalSucks commenter LiquidMan666 was kind enough (or just bored at work) to compile this list of MetalSucks-friendly artists playing this year’s edition of SXSW, the yearly Austin, TX music festival usually dominated by flavor-of-the-moment indie rock turds. Is metal finely getting a fair shake in the music community at large? The following bands are confirmed to be playing SXSW official showcases, which says nothing of other bands who might be playing day parties or unaffiliated shows:

High on Fire, Between the Buried and Me, Blue Cheer, Enslaved, 1349, At All Cost, Fucked Up, Yakuza, Vvervvolf Grehv, Weedeater, Tub Ring, Russian Circles, Alex Skolnick, Trio, The Warriors, Pissed Jeans, Graveyard, Goat the Head, Coliseum, Genghis Tron, and Roger Miret & The Disasters.

Sadly MetalSucks will not be throwing down at this year’s 5-day booze and drug bender music festival. Throw your horns in the air for us.
