The Golers-South Mountain Style


I know what you're all thinking, but don't let their name or this re-release's cover art fool you. The Vancouver, British Columbia band known as The Golers are anything but a bunch of slack-jawed yokels! Named after the infamous Nova Scotian Goler clan, Canada's own The Golers are a crossover/thrash metal band whose latest full-length release, "In 'n' Outlaws", earned high praise from fans and critics alike. Now (thanks in no small part to the continuing high demand that is placed on this band's debut album here) these punk/hardcore thrashers are all set to unleash a digital re-issue of this album which was originally released way back in 1999! What's more the band (guitarist/lead vocalist Charlie, guitarist/vocalist Henry, bassist/vocalist Jonny and drummer Cranswick) will be bringing their punk thrash/crossover sound out on the road when they take part in a cross-country Canadian tour this summer. One would have to think that this kind of crossover simply kills it on the live stage seeing as everything about this band is extreme! For The Golers (who incidentally were formed out of the ashes of a band called Subversion in 1998) "South Mountain Style" was a great start and since then the band has only grown stronger. If you are a fan of bands like D.R.I., C.O.C., M.O.D., S.O.D., Suicidal Tendencies and even Slayer you will find that there is much to enjoy about The Golers and their take on crossover metal/thrash. You can pre-order "South Mountain Style" by heading here and be sure to head over to the group's Facebook page so that you can be kept up to date on this band's comings and goings.
