antlered man



We're pleased to bring you news on the debut album from one of the strangest and most compelling bands in the UK at the moment, Antlered Man. This band are essential listening for fans of Mike Patton or any of his projects such as Mr Bungle, Tomahawk and Fantomas as well as other acts such as And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead.

To coincide with the announcement the band are giving away the album track 'Platoono Of Uno' as a free download and you can get yours by clicking here.

The laws of probability dictate that living in Bermondsey leads to a high chance of spending your life getting twatted at the weekend in between the nine to five grind. Forming a heavy rock band in this part of the world makes you somewhat of an anomaly and that's just how Antlered Man like it.

The band have always lived a nomadic, hand to mouth existence and squandered their limited earnings on various botched musical campaigns. Now with the economic downturn hitting our pockets hard, we're all preparing for a taste of what it's like to be in Antlered Man and this is one of many themes mused in debut album 'Giftes 1&2'.

Hailed by Artrocker as an "Intriguing mash between the metally poetic darkness of SOAD and our own favourite Future of the Left", the band describe themselves as "“fucked up shape-shifting band with lots of punk-ethic goo spattered on top". This becomes ever so clear on the upcoming single 'Surrounded By White Men' released on 13th February.

This Mike Patton infused, dirty political power house of a band also captured the attention of Belfast's finest And So I Watch You From Afar who took them on tour across Europe in late 2011.

Antlered Man's debut is a schizophrenic beast. A record that would nestle happily on the Ipecac roster and again like Patton they have maintained that things are always done better when they actually do it themselves. A little narcissistic, yeah, but when you're this badarse - you deserve a label. So with this in mind the band set up their own imprint in the form of Goo Grrrl Records

Plans for a full UK/European tour in March/April are under way and with the release of 'Giftes 1&2' and more recording in the pipline - both lyrically and musically it will be hard for anyone to come close to this band in 2012.

Antlered Man are Danny Fury (guitar), Damo Ezekiel Holmes (vocals), Sam Ray (bass) and Oliver Parker (drums).


NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.
