Del Sur-Spanish for "of the south" Southern metal at it's finest! These boys hail from Dallas, TX and put a new spin on what it means to be metal, as well as what it means to be "of the south"! After only playing together for a few months, they've already been able to draw considerable crowds to shows in the DFW area
On a cool day in February three guys decided to hang out after church to jam a bit. The power went out three times and most of the chords consisted of soft jazz tones and lyrics about stealing cookies from the cookie jar but to avail an a idea was born. That idea was to form a band, but not just any band, a hard hitting, high energy, face melting, dirty southern metal band. With influences ranging from dirty southern acts like Maylene and the sons of disaster, Every time I die, and He is legend, they had a direction to march toward with this crazy idea. Henceforth Del Sur, which is "of the South" in spanish, was given unto the Earth. Two problems remained for the trio (Dave Johnson, Josh Olson, and Kylan Savage), they needed more. More sound. More energy. More raw power. So naturally they recruited the most intense, hardcore, toughest cowpokes in town. The finger pluckin skills of a guitar madman(Caleb Rains) and the vocal abilities of Michael the Archangel (Joe Cutler) was blessed upon the new project and the trio became a quintet, with less jazz influence and more beef jerky. They quickly sat down and cranked out five solid, fist pumping tunes, guaranteed to make the kiddies move their feet. These young professionals became well known among the southern social seen as one of the most promising southern rock bands proud to be born Of The South.
