Miami's Ten Heaviest Current Metal and Punk Bands

Miami has a long history of putting out great, unique sounding heavy bands. In much the same way that the marsupials of the Southern Hemisphere have evolved with combinations of traits unlike those of any other mammalian group, Miami's isolated heavies are a genus unto themselves.

And now, in particular, is a good time for heavy music in the 305. The groups are plentiful, the scene is a strong one, and, if you're not currently in the loop, you're definitely missing out on some of the best loudness to come from our wonderful little slice of hell in a long, long time. But we here at Crossfade have your back! Behold, our ten favorite heavy bands of the current Miami crop!
