Hometown bands thread

Post bands/musicians from your hometown

In the early 2000s Springfield was to metal what Disney was to teen pop stars. Within the span of just a few years Springfield area artists Killswitch Engage, Shadows Fall, All That Remains, and Staind (more alt rock/nu metal, but there’s no denying their first album was pretty metal) all hit the big time.

Outside of metal there’s also blues legend Taj Mahal

And instrumental solo guitarist Tony MacAlpine

Let’s hear the music of your people
