CMJ isn't all about indie bands playing plinking, plunking guitars and tight pants -- it's also about the hard rock and the metal! And last night we at Noisecreep traveled out to Irving Plaza for an excellent showcase features some bass-heavy bad-asses.

Glass Cloud, Like Moths to Flames and The Amity Affliction lit the place on fire and showed the CMJ 2012 can get pretty damn loud. Check out our exclusive photos of the show below and let us know if you were there on Twitter @noisecreep.
