Allright - I'm just curious as to what everyone thinks is the best metal city in the US. My personal picks would be San Francisco in the '80's, because of the thrash movement and New Orleans now days (untill Katrina hit, that is), for the sludgy, dirty sound those bands share (Down, Corrosion of Conformity, EyeHateGod, Crowbar, Acid Bath, ect). Be sure to include your reasoning in a post, especially if you chose other.

Tampa Bay thrash and Florida death!


Tampa Bay Thrash

You mean Bay Area Thrash I guess (you know from the San Francisco Bay Area)

I think San Francisco and Boston are tops, mostly because of the quality of the bands, since the attendance at shows in SF is kind of weak.

San Francisco, hands down! Amazing place for music. Florida comes in second.

I went with New York , not so much for New York itself, but the bands in the area.
Incantation, Immolation, Dying Fetus and so on.
Cannibal Corpse started in New York, even tho they are thought of as Florida metal.

In the 80s clearly San Francisco, when Metallica still made metal...^^
and today in NOLA of course, they've just the most awesome bands there at the moment - Eyehategod, Down, Crowbar, Goatwhore, Corrosion of Conformity etc...

They've been playing that way for 20 years! It's just how your preferences change. In 1996, I would have said NOLA.

Well, I know. All that sludge started way earlier ... but they are still *there* you know what I mean? and there are some very young and promising bands there too (e.g. haarp)!
but tbh, I don't think that you can't find music scences like this anymore. Music business and society changed a lot over the last few decades, and the internet did the rest to bring everything closer together (which is good in a way).
And for me, personally, I'd always have wanted to experience such a scence myself so that's why I chose them, I guess I am born too late lol

San Fran... Just can't argue with some of the bands that came from there for me.
