The world was introduced to Antlered Man in 2012 with debut album ‘Giftes 1&2’. Rave reviews and award nominations followed the release, along side 100+ tour dates and 15 festivals in that year alone.
With influences spanning The Melvins, Tool, Mike Patton, SOAD, their unique mix of punk, metal, prog, hardcore and alt rock was quick to translate in to packed tour dates, including EU tours with And So I Watch You From Afar and multiple gold record selling Triggerfinger. This accumulated in a nomination for ‘Best Live Act’ at the 2012 Artrocker Awards.
At the beginning of 2013 the band recorded down LP#2 ‘This Devil Is Them’ with Belfast based ASIWYFA producer Rocky O’Reilly. A heavier and stranger beast than the first. Which has just been released through the label
-NEW HEAVY SOUNDS
With another award nomination as ‘Best New Band’ at this year’s Classic Rock PROG ‘Progressive Music Awards’, the band are on an upwards curve.
One thing you can be sure of is that you won’t hear another record like this, ever. If it sounds this good on record, what will happen when the band return to their live element?
