Music fans of the Pacific Northwest, get ready for our fifth annual year-end daily local music showcase, 100 Bands in 100 Days, where every day until December 31st, we’re showcasing a new band or artist you have to know about, once again presented by Verity Credit Union.

Make sure you are checking the #100Bands100Days hashtag on Twitter on a daily basis to stay on top of all the bands featured and be sure to follow Verity and NW_Music_Scene there. Some days the featured act could be an established and locally-adored northwest-based musician and other times they could be a band with a small following that just hasn’t had their deserved time in the spotlight yet. Either way, we’re fairly confident you can come away from this daily segment with plenty of new favorites. Today’s featured artist is Method13.


Hailing from the Pacific Northwest and outlying Seattle, Method13 have an alternative metal low tuned and groove laden approach to their music. This acts as a springboard for the equally aggressive and melodic post-hardcore vocals with striking lyrical content. Method13 prides themselves on a beautiful, versatile sound and a broad fan base. Their debut EP was released on July 13, 2018.

We haven’t had nearly enough metal on this year’s 100 band campaign but let’s rectify that because today’s featured outfit wastes no time getting right up the ear sockets of the listener. Powered by a ferocious, bombastic drumbeat, thundering bass lines, filthy guitar riffs and soaring vocals, today’s band, Method13, delivers just what fans of newer metal crave. Method13’s five-song debut is packed with groove heavy rockers that should earn them a spot on any list of newer northwest metal bands to watch out for in 2019. We’re putting them on ours. Take a listen to the EP on Spotify HERE and get ready to have your face melted. Also, look a bit lower on this page for details about a benefit show they are playing to help northwest musician Ryan Georg.
