Some local venues are fighting against the mainstream music scene in Los Angeles, offering diverse and bold shows, in contrast with the overall commercial choices widely made in LA CA, here hip hop reigns supreme in commercial land.

Death Metal is one of the genres these audacious deejays and presenters are using to face the scarcity of variety and the predominant conformity in the L.A. music scene.
As we all know, this problem doesn’t concern only California or Los Angeles. It is a worldwide problem, as music is increasingly losing its artistic prerogatives to become a mere “product”.

Live music venues, where rock and metal projects could find a good spot to perform, are going through a hard time too. They either close down or choose to focus on other music genres, that could better fit into the overall taste of the public.

Luckily for the inhabitants of Los Angeles, and for rock and metal fans in particular, the “city of angles” has a vivid underground scene. The metal scene is especially alive and well, with five successful and innovative bands making a name for themselves and gaining the attention of the big public outside the Californian border too.

Here are you top 5 Death Metal bands in LA

4. Luna 13, the revolutionary EDM/Black Metal duo, signed to Cleopatra Records, who has brought bass and electronic music into Black Metal. After winning a few metal awards and presenting metal with something brand new “Luna 13 enters the top 5 because they are heavy as fuck and they have out darked all bands in L.A.” One local journalist stated that Luna 13 invokes dark deities and creates music from this dark devotion. “That is Black Metal my friends, like them or hate them, they deserve the top 4 slot.”

5. Nyctophile, a young five-piece band formed only a couple of years ago, is the last, but not least, to make it in the top 5. Their peculiar way of mixing different metal styles (Thrash, Death, Black,…) into a general hymn to darkness and the beauty of embracing it is mind-blowing.
