Arizona Heavy Metal is dedicated to heavy metal bands in and around the state of Arizona. Not only are we dedicated to all these great metal bands and their music but to the Venues that allow them to craft and perform their art.
What can Arizona Heavy Metal do for you, the bands?
We here at Arizona Heavy Metal know exactly how hard it is to generate any sort of buzz about your art. Presenting yourselves and your music to more than just the local crowd isn’t as hard as you think it is. Arizona Heavy Metal knows that you have day jobs and spend countless hours practicing during the week in preparation for your shows on the weekends or even preparing to go into the studio, and difficulties of holding together a family as well.
You bands shouldn't also have to worry about promoting yourselves. Promoting music can be expensive, but we will do it for free with all our own accounts and website. How you can do that for us, you might ask. Well the answer is quite simple. Arizona Heavy Metal is a social media and web design powerhouse. If you have a show coming up or are working on a demo let us know. We will make post on all of our social media accounts of what it is that you are up to. We can even set up social media accounts across the board for you and make the necessary post as well (this is a paid service, however). We will also include a page for your band (with our logo and yours) on our site as well.
What’s in it for us?
What’s the catch? What’s wrong with you? These are quite easy questions to answer. We just want to support the underground music scene and to see your bands come up through the ranks. OK there is a catch. We wouldn’t mind some merch or to even be put on the list as your guest to your shows so that we may record your set and use that footage to help get the word out on social media. We will also send you a copy of the videos for your own use as well.
Heavy metal fans are the most devout and dedicated fans from any genre of music. As fans of heavy metal we here at Arizona heavy metal not only want to promote but to see our local bands grow and succeed in their progression.
Our metal head friends and families like to toss a few back and get a lil rowdy. After working long hard grueling shifts all day long they make that trek to the garage, the spare room in the drummers house, the backyard, shit even the rented storage unit, to do their second love and passion METAL for the next 3 or so hours.
Whether you like ; Thrash, Death, Black, Power, or Doom/Goth metal we are all brothers and sisters that have been devoted and have taken great pride in our particular genre of metal. Today we need to stand together even more so than ever, our breed are being phased out by SHIT!!
From the roots of bands like Led Zepplin, Deep Purple, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Motörhead, and Judas Priest our faves grew to become more heavy and loud with bands like Iron Maiden, Van Halen, Twisted Sister, Mötley Crüe, Queensryche, and Guns n Roses. In the late 80s’s our music evolved to something more with bands like Metallica, Megadeath, Slayer, Anthrax, Testament and Pantera oh and I just have to mention this group THE BEASTIE BOYS. In the 90’s our bands became Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, Sound Garden, Alice and Chains, White Zombie and Nirvana.
Times have changed and the person that has taken the time to do all this fucking work (web design and filling it full of tidbits) have only listed some bands that may or may not have influenced these wild and hard core guys and gals that make up our metal scene in and around Arizona. But ya know what, METAL WILL NEVER FUCKING DIE!!!!!
