Oh well, like you said Atlanta is close, and I can finally expand my music tastes.
They do seem to be pretty popular for post-rock/post-metal though. Caspian played there that Friday I was there, and Isis played one of their few farewell shows there.
I went to law school in Athens, and there is, in fact, almost no metal scene whatsoever. I saw three metal shows in three years - High On Fire, Mastodon and Skeletonwitch. You have to drive to Atlanta for your metal.
