The world was introduced to Antlered Man in 2012 with debut album ‘Giftes 1&2’. Rave reviews and award nominations followed the release, alongside 100+ tour dates and 15 festivals in 2012 alone.
With influences spanning The Melvins, Tool, Mike Patton, Shellac & Clutch, their unique mix of punk, metal, prog, hardcore and alt rock was quick to translate into 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. Always intriguing, always exiting and brutally heavy.
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, ‘This Devil Is Them’, takes the band to new territories. Sub 3:30 tracks like ‘My Surname My Cum’ hit you hard and fast, 10:24 progressive epic ‘Audition Tapes For Hades’ delivers in orchestral proportions and 'Phoney Tough' has a hook that will drive you insane. Dark, weird and wonderful - unique is an overused word in the music business, however the variety and skill on display here is nothing short of groundbreaking.
