There's something about the South that brings out the darkness and deep-seeded, unrelenting rage. Bands like Goatwhore, Soilent Green, Sourvein, Rwake, Weedeater, Dark Castle, Zoroaster, and countless others have proved that for every sunny Taylor Swift wannabe, there is an equal and opposing force.
Atlanta's Sons of Tonatiuh (that's "Tahn-a-tee-ah") specialize in the same crusty doom & gloom punk stylings that made Southern favorite sons Eyehategod & Buzzov*en so frightening/awe-inspiring. A merciless onslaught of down-tuned misanthropic riffs pepper the band's sludgy and powerful new self-titled debut out now on Hydro-Phonic Records. Check out "Adam & Evil" available for stream below for more proof of the madness that lurks behind the eyes of these current/past members of Leechmilk (members of which went on to join Withered), Fell A Victim, Noble Rust and Whiskey Shit Vomit.
Speaking of Buzzov*en (who recently reunited and played Public Assembly), lead vocalist/guitarist Kirk Fisher will play a surprise show at Union Pool at 9PM on 10/12 (tomorrow) with Erik Wunder of Cobalt/Man's Gin.
Sons of Tonatiuh currently have no NYC dates on the way but will tour the South in spurts, with a tour in the works for the new year. Dig on dates, some video, and that stream, below...
