Kryptic Throne, Paralysys, and More to Play a Metallica Tribute Show at Tobacco Road

We all breathed really heavy sighs when we

heard that Metallica was going to release a DVD along with Anthrax, Megadeth, and Slayer

, but realized they won't be joining them for their October 3 South Florida show. After all, what's real metal fan doesn't have a little Metallica stashed away in their collections?

Well, the real Metallica hasn't made any Florida tour announcements, but we may have come across the next best thing: A Metallica Tribute Show. Their former bassist Cliff Burton passed away on September 27, 1986, and to honor him, 10 bands will take to two stages to perform covers of Metallica's best songs, along with their own originals. You can also catch some rare live Metallica videos and remixes between sets.

Tobacco Road will be hosting the shindig next Saturday, with

Kryptic Throne, Paralysys, Silenmara, Anger the Gods, Half Head, Mixed

Breed, Naked Vengence, ShadowKast, Metrailerca, and Words of Caution.

Phew. That's a lot of metal.

But before you put up your devil horns, there's more. There will be an

air guitar competition, with the winner receiving a "brand new, any

make, model, and color of their choice air guitar," plus $100 cash. You

know, for those of you that already have way too many air guitars lying
