A list of shows and resources pertaining to the metal scene in Utah.
Yes, Virginia, there is metal in the state of Zion!

Here is a forum for Utah to discuss and promote metal ... local shows, places to buy metal, band promos, metalhead milkshake nights ... whatever! All genres of metal are welcome: black, death, power, prog, classic, hair, doom, industrial, even mall!

Membership is open to anyone, no real rules yet (And don't make me write them!) -- just play friendly. No trolls or "more-metal-than-thou-art" attitude, please.

BTW, there are literally dozens of shows and bands in Utah, and if you have one you want to promote, simply become a member and post about it. We'll be more than happy to promote it here!

No obligation, but why not introduce yourself:

P.S. We are a direct affiliate of Non-Mormon Utah. (No, this does not mean that you have to be non-mormon to be a member of Metalhead Utah. We love Mos here. Just that our communities are good buddies. We tried to become a direct affiliate of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints as well, but they required dwarvenpanzer9 to audition for the Tabernacle Choir. He played the bass Murderface style, and ever since, he, the mod, and the mod's goldfish have been banned from Temple Square.)
