Anti-Mortem Signs With Nuclear Blast

Nuclear Blast is pleased to announce the newest addition to its ever growing label roster: Anti-Mortem. The label issued the following statement:

"Formed in 2008 and fronted by vocalist Larado Romo, Anti-Mortem’s line-up includes older brother-guitarist Nevada Romo, guitarist Zain Smith, bassist Corey Henderson and drummer Levi Dickerson.

"While Zain’s parents were away working on the weekends, Anti-Mortem would turn their barn rehearsal space into a makeshift venue and hone their chops by inviting friends and family in Chickasha over for an afternoon of gravel-throated vocals, crunch-laden riffs, thick grooves, and some good ol’-fashioned Southern hospitality."
