Chickasha hard rockers Anti-Mortem will celebrate this week’s release of their debut album “New Southern” with a home-state show at 8 tonight at the Diamond Ballroom, 8001 S Eastern Ave.
Doors open at 7 p.m., and the lineup also features Everybody Panic!, Anialas and Killer Gandhii. For more information, go to www.diamondballroom.net.
Formed in 2008, the band already has performed more than 300 shows, even though the combined average age of this Oklahoma quintet is just 21. The band members were raised on Southern rock and heavy metal and driven by a hunger to leave a mark. 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.
Released via Nuclear Blast Entertainment, the album was produced, recorded, and mixed by the esteemed Bob Marlette (Black Stone Cherry, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Shinedown, Rob Zombie) and features artwork by Brent Elliott White (Death Angel, Job for a Cowboy, Trivium).
After tonight’s Oklahoma release show, Anti-Mortem will resume touring throughout the U.S. by playing six shows with Lacuna Coil this May and opening for Machine Head’s “Killers & Kings” tour this July.
