GARY SUAREZ’S AMPED-THE-F*CK-UP ENDORSEMENT OF PROVEN FOR SCION’S NO LABEL NEEDED CONTEST
Although the editors of MetalSucks get a vote in the Scion No Label Needed Contest, the staff of MetalSucks, alas, does not. Thus, over the course of the next few days, each MetalSucks writer will post an endorsement for his favorite finalist for the contest. You can check out all the finalists, and vote for your personal favorite, here.
Most of the bands competing in this contest are so underwhelming or otherwise not-to-my-liking that, were they to open for a group I’d actually want to see, I’d bust out my UNO cards. (I kid! I kid!) Much to my surprise, however, I found one group in the running that I think is pretty fucking great: Portland, Oregon’s Proven.
