We live in the Seattle area and we like live metal.  Not just any metal, but the kind of music we cover on this site (NCS Metal).  As a public service, we’ll post on this page upcoming shows in the Seattle area (and sometimes elsewhere in the Northwest) as we become aware of them.

WARNING: We get our information from reliable web sites, including the venues for the shows, but we can’t guarantee what we find is accurate, so check it out for yourself.  And we don’t promise to update the info if a show is canceled or a band drops off a tour or the venue changes.  So before you show up to buy tickets at the door, check with the venue to make sure nothing has changed.

If you’re a band or a venue and you want us to add your info here, leave a comment below or send e-mail to:   islander@nocleansinging.com

    Don’t forget Isis at Neumos on June 1!

  2. Wow, fuck, Finntroll and Barren Earth on the same bill? That’s epic as hell. Of course, no Swedish tour. WTF?

  3. Brian says:

    How about The Power of the Riff tour on Aug 19th at Neumo’s?

  4. Brendon Williams says:

    Although it would be awesome, I’m pretty sure Tesseract won’t be playing on the Periphery/Textures show. Also, you have the date wrong: it’s on the 22nd, not the 26th!

  5. Brendon Williams says:

    I take it back – it looks like Tesseract will be playing after all! They’re not listed on the posters though. But still, the show is on September 22nd.

  6. John says:

    Funeral Age is playing with Decapitated on October 14th at Studio 7 as well. Please update the info.

    Mayhem Festival is happening July 3rd. There are some pretty good bands on the list, like Behemoth, Children of Bodom, Amon Amarth, Machine Head, and Mastodon. And some…not so exciting bands as well.

    • Islander says:

      Man, thanks for that tip. I’ve been hunkered down in a cave the last 2 weeks and missed that announcement. That’s a really mixed lineup, but the awesome part of it is pretty fuckin awesome. I just added it to this page.

      • Dan C. says:

        There’s definitely a variety. I’m curious to see how all the different stages work, timing-wise and such.

  18. Dan C. says:

    June 19 – Studio Seven: Melechesh, Vreid, Lightning Swords Of Death, Reign Of Lies.
    Why must this be on a Wednesday?

  19. Dan C. says:

    Looks like Warbringer’s playing that Overkill/Kreator show as well.

    • Islander says:

      Oh man, I feel your pain. Unfortunately, about all I have time to do for this page is try to keep up with what’s happening in the Seattle area where I live, updating it about once a week. It’s really the only part of this site that’s purely local.

  23. who knows says:

    I don’t know if this is anything people here will be interested in, but Feb 11- at El Corazon, Chelsea Grin (and several other irrelevant bands.)

  24. Volkov says:

    Sunday, Jan 26th at Highline – Chapel, Weregoat, Old Skin


  25. SomeRandomDude says:

    I love you

  26. Teri Renda says:

    Under the section blogroll on this page, when you click on Northwest Metal Alliance, it comes up with a septic tank on it.


    • Islander says:

      Ooops! Well, the Northwest Metal Alliance link is obviously defunct. Why it’s redirecting to that septic tank site, I have no idea — not my doing, though it is kind of funny. Anyway, I’ve deleted the link. Reminds me that I need to clean up the blogroll, which I haven’t done in… forever.
