Metal Injection's Complete Guide To Metal at SXSW 2011 [UPDATED]South by Southwest is just over two weeks away and I'm pumped. This year, perhaps more than any year before it, there is an endless amount of metal shows going on each day. Metal is definitely very well represented this year at SXSW, and we will be there to cover it to the best of our abilities. We are even sponsoring a few shows! We have just updated this list to reflect recent announcements. If you can't make it to SXSW, come back March 16th – 20th for ongoing liveblogs from the event:
