For Fans Of Southern Rock: Mount Carmel

Formed in 2008, this Columbus Ohio trio take the tried and true sound of Southern Rock, and strip away all the excess. Take it back to it’s roots. Start with a swampy riff, add some good ol’ boy that has soul in his voice, with a bit of country twang. 

You won’t find female backup singers, or a horn section, two drummers, or 3 guitarists playing 10 minute solos. All the BS is gone. Mount Carmel sound like ZZ Top before the fuzzy guitars and synthesizers. 

They have three albums out. 2010 Self Titled, 2012 Real Women, and 2014 Get Pure. Here is the lead track from their second album. This ditty gets the toes tapping 

Check out this live version of No Pot To Piss. It’s a barn burner


If you like your Southern Rock a touch raw, a bit bluesy, and full of soul, give these guys a listen.
