I have a special place in my heart for Las Vegas, probably because I lived in Nevada for almost twenty years. You hear all kinds of cliched phrases about Las Vegas being the "entertainment capital" of the U.S., but that depends on what kind of entertainment you're looking for. If you're just some tourist, you'll go hog wild for the latest flamboyant guy taming a white tiger or some pop star appearing at Caesar's Palace. Or you could be the weekend partier from LA, descending on the city for a night of debauchery at one of the dozens of night clubs and ultra lounges. But the kind of entertainment a metal listener wants is going to be markedly different, and a scene does exist in Las Vegas once again.
See, the Las Vegas valley had a great underground scene back in the late eighties and throughout the nineties. Besides Mark Slaughter putting it on the map in terms of commercial metal, Mitch Harris released two LP's with his LV band The Righteous Pigs before leaving to join Napalm Death. Clubs such as Calamity Jayne's brought in weekly shows before they were busted for coke, and the Huntridge was legendary in terms of hardcore and extreme metal shows. All the local bands played at the local college bars around UNLV and at the Elks Lodge in Henderson, and had their music promoted on the radio station before the general manager switched the format to all jazz back in 1998. Local bands such as Goatlord, Requiem and Hemlock (still active and billing themselves "the hardest working band in metal") had no more exposure after this happened, and the local scene died off for a number of years after this.
Technology intervened and created a renaissance for the Las Vegas scene. College radio isn't imperative any more when you can hear everything on satellite radio and the internet now. Besides the House of Blues at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and the Hard Rock Casino bringing in the bigger names, there are tons of local venues hosting concerts now. Every weekend there are shows at the Cheyenne Saloon with local bands on the roster supporting the big name acts that come in from L.A. and elsewhere. That five-hour drive from California has brought in bands ranging from Asesino to Enthraller at this venue, which was the site for the Las Vegas Death Fest 3 and the Doom In June shows. Local favorites like Avenger In Blood and Soiled Carnage can be found there with a whole host of other garage metal bands opening for the big gigs.
In the past five years, the scene has exploded with bands such as metalcore heavy hitters Molotov Solution putting Las Vegas on the map. Another big surprise has been the immense popularity of Guttural Secrete in the national death metal scene. Granted, they've been around almost a decade, but it is literally unheard of for a band this extreme to have almost a quarter of a million hits on Youtube - especially an independent one. In many ways, Las Vegas does have the ideal climate for a scene if any city has. It's 24 hours of non-stop drinking, gambling and every vice imaginable. What it lacks in historic culture it exceeds in bacchanalian virtues. It is the setting for the glitterati and the plastic too, and for every serious extreme metal and metalcore band working the club circuit, the desert floor is littered with alot of screamo bands and younger kids that need to hone their style.
Below we will take you to the music of a few Las Vegas bands that haven't been featured prominently in our pages, so you can get an idea of what this desert community has to offer the metal scene.
Tales of the Grotesque
Tales of the Grotesque define themselves as a brutal melodic death metal band that were "recently released from a dark room where they defined their sound and status as a band." They've been around since 2010 and it's their mission to give you the feeling of an eerie tale crawling in your skin. They were recently voted October band of the month by Las Vegas website FiggZillaMusic.com.
Las Vegas metal band Guttural Secrete has issued the following update:
"It's been a long time since we've had any kind of updates. First of all we have been working very hard on new material for our next release which will come out on Brutal Bands. The songs are taking some time but are coming along nicely. Things should start to progress a lot better now though as we would like to welcome back Randy to the band who previously played with us on the last CD, Reek of Pubescent Despoilment, as well as recorded it. Our main focus currently is to get Randy up to date on the newest material so we can prepare to record a 3 song promo that we can hopefully get out for you guys sometime soon. We'll keep you guys all up to date on everything we're up to. We are certain that this new material will not disappoint and we appreciate everyone's patience and support."

An article on underground death metal bands from Las Vegas has been posted on Las Vegas City Life:
Drainage X. Guttural Secrete. Sutured Esophagus. Soiled Carnage. Angryhead. From the Grave. Avenger of Blood. Draconium. Hemlock. The Weirding Way.
These are the names of the most recent crop of Las Vegas death-metal bands itching to carve their own desolate paths to glory across the international underground. And when I say "death metal," I'm not talking about the hyper-emotional bloodletting that passes for aggressive music these days, particularly in the form of nü-metal acts like Godsmack, or emotional hardcore like the Used, or even the artier metal-flavored punk doled out by more sensitive acts like Vegas' own Curl Up and Die. I'm talkin' 'bout death metal, which is all about killing your mother and raping your father ... before getting into some really sick and twisted shit.
Vegas' community of deranged metalheads seems poised to join the ranks of cities like New York, L.A. and San Francisco. Why? Because our underground is starting to enjoy "success." In addition to the House of Blues bringing extreme-metal shows to the Strip, a new venue has sprouted up on Boulder Highway, the Roadhouse Casino, which booked shows every weekend throughout the fall and plans to offer even more sonic carnage in the spring. Add to that the increased exposure of a local metal radio show/Website MetalReigns.com and the recent indie-label signings of European-style thrash-metal quartet Avenger of Blood and gore-grind duo Guttural Secrete, and suddenly you've got the momentum necessary for the creation of a "scene."
