As I get older I find myself getting away from the death/speed metal genre. I've started to drift towards "southern metal" in the last couple of years but I'm having a hard time finder newer music. Does anyone have any recommendations on some decent "Southern Metal" bands; something along the lines of Down, Black Label, COC, Big Frank, The Showdown, etc... Thanks

Mastodon's an excellent band from Atlanta, albeit with mediocre (in my mind) vocals. They mix a number of metal genres; thrash, sludge, progressive, grindcore; among others.

EyeHateGod, Soilent Green, Crowbar and Buzzov*en might be your kinda thing if you like a lot of extreme music. One band I cannot recommend enough to anyone though: ACID BATH, seriously, not just OP, anyone reading this, if the name Acid Bath doesn't ring a bell to you get your ass on youtube now.

I was actually joking at first... but seriously? I am going to look into this one

Do you have a link? I don't see anything about them anywhere.

Take it to the recommendation thread please! Unless anyone wishes to join me in my quest to pull the genre towards the conventions of southern England rather than the USA. Tories!

Alright, I'll give them a try, Japanese Black Speed rarely disappoints.

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.
