Um... How about Pittsburgh,PA..? Its called Steel City... Ya cant get more metal than that ;-)

Seriously tho.. Id have to agree with Bg1..!! To live in the same place that holds the greatest metal fest around.!
That would have to be the place to be \m/

Greatest metalfest? I think we need a different thread to hash that one out! haha
You might as well live in Tolmin Slovenia for the Metal Camp Festival then...

Well for the Flordian death metal scene, any city in Florida.
Other than that, I can't think of very many metal cities in the US, other than LA with all their glam history.
And LA is covered in steel, come to think of it.
If choosing a festival, I think Wacken is the best place to go.

I think I may have to start a thread about this except for the fact that not everyone, including me, has been to every single metalfest. It would be a great conversation though. Hmmm....

Metalfan653- I still stick to my post that Los Angeles is a shit hole, but there have been many great bands to come from the city before it was annexed to Mexico about ten-fifteen years ago.

The Doors, Tool, Megadeth, Slayer, WASP, Van Halen, Black Flag, etc all came from LA when it was part of America!

well I just found out last night at the Cattle Decapitation show that their new bassist is from my city St.louis! We just got a little more metal, but I still think I will move somewhere someday just to experience something new

How about Birmingham? That's were it all really started (Black Sabbath) plus having visited there in the late 90s, sure looked like metal to me!

Wacken... Hands down best metalfest.

Wolf: Lol. Birmingham's a fucking shit hole. Almost as bad a Pittsburgh. lol.

Wacken shmackin, it's all about Warped Tour for the best metal yo. I mean, it has Whitechapel. WHITECHAPEL. And Attack Attack! You can't argue with that, chaps.

Nat: Please hand me the cleaver so that I can chop off my right arm at the elbow rather then brave a Warped Tour.

Texas is quite metal. Despite all the hipsters and fratboys Austin is really metal and a lot of tours come here. It's a great music city
