Postcard_5bandsYeah, we know. It totally sucks about the whole Nachtmystium/Blake Judd thing, pretty much for everyone involved. We wish that the band were playing our CMJ showcase tomorrow too. However, we’re not going to let that ruin what was already going to be one of the standout parties of CMJ. You have one day left to pick up tickets to the showcase that features two of the five metal bands that CMJ said you must see this week.

We’re not that good at math, but 50% of our showcase (Ramming Speed and Black Anvil)  was deemed “must see,” and Vattnet Viskar and Byzantine are no slouches either. In fact, it will be Byzantine’s first show in the area in six years. Brooklyn Vegan and Metal Sucks agree that the show is going to be a blast, and while critical acclaim from websites we read on the regular is awesome, even if you’re not swayed by that, you should want to come out anyway for the music.

Pick up your tickets here. You’ll thank us later.
