Atlantic South are a metalcore/post-hardcore band from Cape Town and have been beating a track in the local scene for themselves since first emerging in October 2013, previously mentioned at metal4africa here with the release of their first track ‘Rip-Tide’.
The band released a second track today, ‘Terrorformer’, which was recorded this time at 7 String Studios during November. Tracking was overseen at the studio by Bobby Addison (Ill System) and Neil Bezuidenhout (Moment Of Clarity), with final mix and mastering handled by Neil.
“‘Terrorformer’ is about mankind’s endless pursuit for more, at the cost of our own earth. Our thirst for more is so great that we are willing to follow it to the point of this planet’s destruction. We have created idols for ourselves, taking us down a path of terror and consumption where the ultimate solution can only be to depart for a new world.” ~ Gareth Howard (guitar, Atlantic South)
Gareth also told us that dates have been set for a vigorous bout of recording sessions from early January which should result in the release of an EP by the end of the first quarter in 2015. keep an eye on the bands facebook page for regular updates.
