About Black Tusk

Savannah, GA's Black Tusk specialize in a self-developed style they call, "sludgy punk metal." They combine the drive of fellow Savannah residents Baroness with the thick and murky stoner sludge of High on Fire. In 2005, they debuted the self-issued When Kingdoms Fall. Two years later The Fallen Kingdom followed (also self-released). They issued Passage Through Purgatory in 2008, their final self-issued title before signing to Relapse. In 2010 their label debut appeared as Taste the Sin. Bassist Jonathan Athon died in 2014, his final contributions were on 2016's Pillars Of Ash. Kylesa's Cory Barhorst helmed the bass chair for 2018's TCBT and subsequent tour. Following personnel changes, Black Tusk re-emerged as a quartet for 2024's The Way Forward. ~ Gregory Heaney
