About Black Tusk

Emerging onto the metal scene from Savannah, Georgia in 2005, Black Tusk specialize in a brand of sludgy metal they call "swamp metal." The band combines the drive of fellow Savannah residents Baroness with the thick and murky stoner sludge of High on Fire. In 2005 the band self-released its first album, When Kingdoms Fall. Two years later they self-released another album, The Fallen Kingdom, and kept their prolific release schedule going the following year with Passage Through Purgatory. The band eventually signed on to Relapse, and in 2010 released its first album through the label, Taste the Sin, featuring cover art from Baroness singer John Baizley. ~ Gregory Heaney
