Hard rockers ANTI-MORTEM are set to release their debut album, New Southern, on April 29th in North America via Nuclear Blast. To help introduce you to the mindsets behind the music, Nuclear Blast asked these long-haired Southern gents to discuss the meaning of a Southern heritage, share their small-town community values, and school us all on the joys of Southern recreation (ex: “cow tippin’, fishin’, fireworks, and back roadin’”).
Watch the video now on the Nuclear Blast YouTube channel:

ABOUT NEWCOMERS ANTI-MORTEM:
What the American hard rock and metal scene needs right now is an infusion of youth and some new blood coursing through its veins. Enter ANTI-MORTEM and their upcoming debut album, New Southern. Formed in 2008 and with over 300 shows already to their name, the combined average age of this Oklahoma quintet is just 21-years-old. ANTI-MORTEM were raised on southern rock & heavy metal and driven by a hunger to make an impact. The band dole out bottom-heavy and groove-laden anthems with every track and infuse a modern sense of melody that is the signature trademark of all the metal greats they’ve learned from. Also present and accounted for: southern swagger in spades, courtesy of the band’s roots and upbringing.
Larado Romo – Lead Vocals
Nevada Romo – Guitar
Zain Smith – Guitar
Corey Henderson – Bass
Levi Dickerson – Drums
