Miami's Ten Heaviest Current Metal and Punk Bands

Page 5 of 5

4. Floor

Floor is a legendary Miami band, and though the band's popularity is superseded by that of frontman Steve Brooks' other group (see #1), it has been back on the active list for a few years and will be releasing new music soon also.

3. Shroud Eater

Archaic sounding sludge-metal with a touch of Motorhead and a heap of witchcraft, Shroud Eater is a Miami favorite that really deserves more attention. The group's new material is an evolved and streamlined take on the band's sludge metal approach, and if recent tracks are a sign of what's ahead for Shroud Eater, they are without a doubt a band to keep an eye on.
