What do you people think of southern metal? Do you think it'll become the next big subgenre for metalheads? What southern metal bands do you like?

I wouldn't say next big subgenre, southern metal has been going strong for many years now; at least locally i can say it is. I live in Asheville NC which is a small mountain city in the south (not a very southern city at all, but everywhere else is). I grew up hearing bands like The Showdown, Maylene and The Sons Of The Disaster, He Is Legend, and Once Nothing.

Other southern metal bands worthy of mentioning are Alabama Thunderpussy, Superjoint Ritual (Hank Wiliams III is their bassist), Assjack (Hank Williams III is the only member, you cant get more southern than that), Corrosion Of Conformity, and several others I cant seem to think of at the moment.

It never will be big subgenre, it never will sold out it will stay as deep underground how true south is, souther rock was BIG last SR band what wa smajor was The Black Crows
and we knwo Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, some say CCR, Eagles , The Rossington Collins Band, ZZ Top ... nothing big in 80's well I dont consider REM in SR genre, some say it is

Southern Metal-- Alabama Thunderpussy, Cancer Baths, Black Lable Society, Dawn, Crowbar , Acid Bath , some say Panthera also can be bands what is based in blues, souther traditions and like to drink Jack and play lil heavyer music for modern generation white americans.
Some europians also can be ''close'' like swedes from Kiruna The Burbon Boys, some will say Orange Goblin, some might say Electric Wizard and Cathedral also can sound lil souther

But c mon such muisc, how many ppl like this, its one of doom subgeres and doom is underground and this will stay underground. No way media what is nowdays BIG DEAL to be popular will ignore it
even underground metalheads dont like this genre, even metalstormers ................. so

Well, there are TONS of amazing metal bands from the south, that don't necessarily create one cohesive sound. But if you say "southern metal" the first thing I think of is "Savannah Sludge" and bands like Kylesa, Baroness, Black Tusk, etc. And similar bands from Atlanta and elsewhere in GA or the region, bands like Royal Thunder from Atlanta, or Windhand from Virginia.

That bluesy, sludgy sound is something special. All the bands sound individual but they're nonetheless obvious products of the south.

Mmmmm NO, southern metal is not a doom subgenre. Btw sludge although primarily from the south is not southern metal, southern metal has a totally different sound to it f.e. Pride & Glory, Alabama Thunderpussy, Black Label Society. Tototally not doom at all that sound.

Shit but I ment to say its same as doom when we compare popularity , and many doom metal fans also likes this genre, I like it and I dont give hight hopes to see southern metal in high ranking on charts and have huge media atention. Trad Doom , gothic doom, death doom nowdays has better opurtunity to get popular than southern metal.

No they are not
the LA/NOLA bands you mentioned are sludge and just happen to be from the South but don't play southern metal whereas AT, SJR, AJ, HY are southern metal just like Tombstone Highway is a southern metal band and yet hail from Italy.

Eh, I don't personally see it trending like thrash, death, black, industiral, etc. I think southern metal is a niche within a niche. That being said, check out a band from Savannah, GA called Black Tusk. I did a video for them a few years back:

Whatever classification Down fits in, They rock. They do really draw from a southern influence. Pepper Kenean definatly has some southern roots.
Biggest trend, who knows... But I am seeing the Black Crowes in a month in Michingan.

I am 48 and have seen every evolution of rock/metal. Not sure there is much left to evolve.

you don"t think the style of Portal and similar bands leaves room for evolution?
or Blacklodge?
or Infernal Poetry?
or Dol Ammad?
i"d say in whichever direction you want to go from any of those there"s room for something

I think it's kind of funny when genres get geographical names like this. Because what about bands that want to sound like that from say, the north? Or what if a Canadian band wanted to do it? (might work, most of Canada is in southern Canada anyway!)

It reminds me of melodic 'european' death metal, like At The Gates and (early) In Flames. There were a ton of American bands that followed that trend.

Dont know many southern metal bands but i think "Down" and "Black Label Society" are the best examples of southern metal. Down as a favourite of mine.

I'm looking for some southern rock bands like Maylene and the Sons of Disaster, but i don't like "depressive"/metalcore vocals in refrains (for example, Maylene and the Sons of Disaster - Just a Shock has good guitar riff, but refrain is quite.. weak for me).

Thanks for the recommendations, heard some assjack and like it so far.
