Black Tusk

Black Tusk

Profile:
American Heavy Metal band from Savannah, Georgia. The band formed in 2005, when its members were all living on the same street.

Black Tusk is mostly associated with Baroness and Kylesa, for their shared hometown of Savannah, as well as for their Sludge Metal sound. The band is linked to Baroness' guitarist and vocalist John Dyer Baizley, who is also a painter and created all of Black Tusk's artwork. Black Tusk's members described their music as "Swamp Metal". The term is a reference to the climate of Savannah in relation to the music that the band created.

Bassist and vocalist Jonathan Athon passed away on 9 November 2014 from injuries sustained from a motorcycle accident that happened two days earlier. In December 2014 it was announced that Corey Barhorst would take his place for the time being.
