    I just thought I'd share with you all a band I came across this week. It's not the sort of thing I listen to, so I have no idea how original/derivative they are, but I like it.



    and another goodie:




    Their whole album is on bandcamp here:

    I saw the Southern Flag and immediately got pissed off.
    then listened to them and they sound like an awful late 90's post grunge band.

    I don't really get the southern flag thing, I know it means a lot of different things to different people, but didn't really think it had any cultural relevance outside the US. Relevance for a Serbian band, fuck knows? Maybe they just want to look like Pantera.

    And they do look and sound like 90s post-grunge, but they are far from awful. :p

    No.
    Because it's a symbol of a political movement and not a religious icon.
    If it was a cross that pissed me off than I would be a bigot.

    Since it is a flag I am a cultural elitist. :p

    Bigotry is the intolerance of any defining characteristics, not just religion.

    Fez man is correct. The fact you wrote them off because you saw a flag is no different to writing them off because they are black, gay or christians.

    That said, they sound like a shitty Alice in Chain cover band.

    While I can see it on the surface, given any critical listening, I don't really see the AIC comparison.
