Best Local Metal Artists

Devil to Pay

One of this city's greatest metal bands was almost a stillborn. Back in 2003, Devil to Pay frontman Steve Janiak was on top of the local scene - but also short two feet of intestine, and not so far away from death's door. He recovered, with a quite a story to tell about botched intestinal surgery, and he's since achieved elder status without sitting on his laurels: Witness the band's most recent album, 2009's Heavily Ever After, which NUVO's Jeff Napier called "the best guitar record Indy has produced in quite some time."
