The members of the Lion's Daughter claim no specific sub-genre: They simply play metal, and they play it well. Hints of influence by Neurosis, Craft, Darkthrone and the Melvins peek through, while the music gets heavier with each release. Never satisfied, the trio is constantly working on improving its already near-perfect design, delivering a live show that is absolutely punishing. The Lion's Daughter recently entered the studio for a split release with the local folksters of Indian Blanket, which will undoubtedly alienate a lot of the metal purists that have come around over the last few years. And you can bet that the band doesn't give a shit. -Kenny Snarzyk
Don't want to shell out the big bucks for that Iron Maiden and Megadeth show this summer? Save some money and just see local unit ThorHammer. The band draws influence from the classic thrashers of the NWOBHM scene (that's New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, for anyone keeping score), modernizing the formula just enough to not come off as nostalgic. Similar bands tend to use this sound as a jumping off point for technical hotdoggery, but all of ThorHammer's effort goes to crafting thrash metal in its most refined form. -Ryan Wasoba
