If you're looking for metal at South by Southwest 2010, then consider the Profound Lore/20 Buck Spin showcase. This SXSW party features a whole lot of metal on March 19 at Headhunter's in Austin, Texas. Who's playing? Dark Castle, White Mice, Liturgy, Salome, Coffinworm, Yakuza, the Atlas Moth, the Endless Blockade and more!

The lineup is split: equal bands from Profound Lore Records and 20 Buck Spin. Two bands on the bill are not signed to either label. The masterminds behind each label agreed SXSW needed more true metal and conspired to bring in some of North America's heaviest bands.

Artist David D'Andrea will help personalize this showcase with an exclusive screen print poster design.
