Not only does Dead Confederate have a very cool band name, this Georgia outfit also released one helluva cool album with “Wrecking Ball”. Think of early Nirvana’s intensity with the guitar wails of Neil Young over a dark and gritty Southern sound. Vocalist Hardy Morris has the perfect aching voice to go with the sludgy sounds that the rest of the band likes to throw out. And the beat? Well, the beat goes on. Sometimes a little bit too long like in the 12-minute long “Flesh Colored Canvas” but that’s okay. Because in the end these guys never stop rocking out in a dirty and raw fashion that I can only applaud. Check out “The Rat” and consider yourself a fan from there on.
