NW METAL CALENDAR

 

I’m the guy who runs this blog. I live in the Seattle area and I like live metal.  Not necessarily all metal, but a pretty broad spectrum of it.  As a public service, I post on this page upcoming shows in the Seattle area (and sometimes elsewhere in the Northwest) as I become aware of them. I tend to focus on the shows I would like to see, but I’ve tried to make it broader than that, too.

WARNING: I get my information from reliable web sites, including the venues for the shows, but I can’t guarantee that what I find will stay accurate, so check it out for yourself.  And I 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.

Sometimes I don’t list a show because I’m unfamiliar with the names, or because I missed an announcement or forgot to check a venue’s calendar. 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

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

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

  7. The Ocean is playing with Devin Townsend too!!!!!!!

  8. Super Happy Story Time Land is going to be the only local opener for Deicide on March 18th

  9. NOV. 15 TDWP, Whitechapel, Enter Shikari, For Today at Roseland Theatre Portland Oregon

  10. Go to the upcoming shows section of truemetalseattleforums.org for the most comprehensive listing of upcoming Metal shows, both local and national.

  11. Huntress and Holy Grail opening for Dragonforce on May 5th. Those are the bands many people will go for me thinks.

  12. This should be updated to combine these two shows:
    NOV 10 at Showbox SoDo: GWAR, DevilDriver, Cancer Bates, Legacy of Disorder

    NOV 10 at Neumos: Napalm Death, Municipal Waste, Exhumed, Attitude Adjustment, Martha Splatterhead’s Revenge

  13. March 31st, Metal Alliance 3 at Showbox SoDo. Anthrax, Exodus, Municipal Waste, Holy Grail, plus more TBA.

  17. 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.

    • 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.

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

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

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

  20. Update to the Beneath Oblivion show Aug 15 at the Comet:

    Beneath Oblivion, Crawlin’, Witchripper, Portents.

    (My band’s Portents and its our 1st show!)

  21. where’s church of misery? December 4th or 5th

  22. I am a die hard metal fan from speed metal to the darkest deepest sickest heaviest metal on earth…..i moved from the Tri state area recently to a place near Detroit Lakes Minnesota…..Any Venue info in the area would be greatly appreciated…ihave been to near 5000 shows in my life and growin up near NYC you can only imagine all the venues in a 10 mile radius let alone a 100 mile radius….i come out here and KAPOOT lmao…Please help I NEED MY METAL!!!!!! ….Im not that far from Fargo dakota but its an hour away….BUT for metal its well worth the ride…i know i can research venues but maybe you can help…that would be DEATHTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!…Hornz metal Brethren !,,!-!,,!

    • 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.
