From start to finish, Anti-Mortem’s new album, New Southern, will have you banging your head and pumping your fist. Some say metal is dying, but these boys from Chickasha, OK are here to prove that theory wrong. If aggressive vocals and forceful guitar riffs are your thing; you will not be disappointed. In six short years they’ve built a strong foundation off a sound reminiscent of vaunted metal acts, Texas Hippie Coalition and Pantera.
If you haven’t seen a live show, now is your chance. This summer they are playing the first leg of their tour with Lacuna Coil and then finishing up strong with Machine Head. So, head to a show, but in the meantime—roll the windows down and turn up the volume until the knob breaks off.
