These dudes are awesome to hang with and have a great live show. Their album release show was pretty solid.

I'll be in Austin this fall too. Austin has a scene that is pretty diverse, but a lot of it is tied to the bar scene from what I've seen. Dallas had a metal scene with little to no variety - crown the empire, Memphis May fire, everyone dies In Utah, drop dead gorgeous, capture the crown, etcetera. Bigger rise core bands have a draw here that is ten times their normal.
drop dead gorgeous has never been from Dallas. There are some good local bands here in DFW, but most metal bands just seem to rip off Oh, Sleeper cause they made it out and got signed. I would rather have a bunch of heavy bands then FTSK rip-offs though any day. Hardcore scene is pretty popular here at least. 2004-2007 had some of the best locals though like Broadway and (in theory). Also, i hardly listen to anything new heavy or go to many heavy shows anymore so my opinion is a little different on current locals.

My bad on DDG. Always feels local though since I grew up watching them play local shows and festivals. Forgot about Broadway. Agree on the metal ripoffs and the ftsk rip offs (the hit, disco Curtis etc as bigger ones)

I think its mostly not a very well out together scene
i agree on it not being well together. There's some great brotherhood between MOTS and the bands they hang with a lot so the shows always have community.
