8. Dallas, TX
Dallas’ most famous, and certainly most noteworthy export into the heavy metal world is Pantera, that’s kind of a given. Currently, the area also features incredible up-and-coming bands like Pinkish Black and Power Trip, as well as veterans like Absu and Warbeast. Also, in the Deep Ellum area, the city has some of the coolest venues you’ll see anywhere, as well as some of the best food in the world. Dallas also gets pretty much any major metal tour it wants, whether it be mainstream or underground and the crowd’s always come in droves and always mosh like there’s no tomorrow.
