Sweaty, loud, bloody, moshing, painful, the next upcoming shows in the area are nothing but terror and loud metal. These hardcore metal bands put their lives, souls, sweat, blood, and tears into making music. Their events show how much time and effort they put into making a form of art.
Within the next month, shows in Philly include underground bands such as Raw Life, Last Man Out, and Carried by Six. A lot of these shows are heavy metal and metal shows and all of them sell shirts, cds, cassettes, and even posters and stickers along with providing entertainment for their fans.
