Former OBITUARY Guitarist Launches SOUTHWICKED

Former OBITUARY/SIX FEET UNDER guitarist Allen West has launched a brand new Tampa, Florida-based death metal band called SOUTHWICKED.

According to the group, "It actually all started when Allen West and Marco Vreven [drums] on the LOWBROW 'Buried in Europe' tour decided to start a new band, and a couple of months later we were working on some songs and recorded a demo tape in the RedRoom [Recorders] in [Tampa]. It's still unfinished but the songs [that are streaming below] already give you an appetizer about which direction we want to go out with our music. Rock Rollain (KULT OF THORN) joined our forces and he placed some mighty fine bass lines on our songs. We asked Sven Poets from SHATTERED SKULL to join our forces. And SOUTHWICKED's lineup is now complete."


* Allen West (OBITUARY, SIX FEET UNDER) - Lead Guitar
* Sven Poets (SHATTERED SKULL) - Vocals
* Stef Mikolajczyk (SHATTERED SKULL) - Rhythm Guitar
* Rock Rollain (KULT OF THORN, LUSTMORD) - Bass
