    their music is influenced by the south, especially in "The Big Dirty." read their lyrics. They dont have to be from the south to sound southern.

    really...:noplease:

    Crowbar is like the country band of southern metal.

    If you played a Crowbar song backwards, would he get back all that he gave??

    Rwake (Arkansas).



    Zoroaster (Georgia).



    Weedeater (North Carolina. Their most recent tour was postponed because one of them shot his toe off while cleaning his shotgun. Doesn't get much more redneck)

    Egypt is a desert, so does Nile count?

    :yesway: I would definitely consider LoG a southern band, especially on Sacrament. The riffs are extremely bluesy and the lyrics have always seemed to have a southern edge to it. (particularly on Sacrament and As the Palaces Burn)

    Nice to see Southern Metal getting some love. Also good to see Zoroaster's latest posted up top. That video wins.

    You guys that dig this shit should probably keep an eye on this if you haven't already.

    down has been said before i know but let me emphasize, LISTEN TO DOWN. also He is Legend are pretty southern sounding. how about Corrosion of Conformity? southern sounding as hell and a kick ass band.

    I'd also like to serve up some good shit if you don't mind. It might not all be 100% southern but its heavy, slow and thick not to mention in the same vein as all the rest. :metal:

    Egypt


    Elder


    Warhorse


    And my personal fav, these guys are the shit. The guitarist is a cool guy as well:

    Black Pyramid

    ... i am just gonna leave it that I have personal issues with this kind of thing :lol: this is unfortunately too true :noplease:
    BUT, for me, when we're talking about the likes of Down, COC, eyehategod, Crowbar...eh that's Southern Metal. I'll leave it that LoG is influenced by...but that's all I can give because I'm a selfish, close-minded, unyielding music nazi...but hey we're all in good company, right? :lol:

    Forgot to put these guys up before...REALLY badass band if you haven't already heard them.

    Youtube has hardly anything, so here's their myspace.

    ...just realized everything on here is out of NOLA :lol: wow.

    Some of these bands have already been mentioned, but yeah,

    Down (saw them live and they are amazing)
    Corrosion Of Conformity
    Clutch
    Eyehategod
    Crowbar
    Parabellum (from Pensacola FL, still kinda underground, they have played with several of the aforementioned bands and also strangely enough they opened for Nile once.)

    Some of their songs have a very southern feel to them, not sure if that counts.

    By the way, this is the sludgiest thread I've seen on SS.org so far, I approve.
