Florida may not always have the most sterling reputation, but it's produced a slew of the bands that we cover and love. For starters, consider Atheist, Hate Eternal and many Morrisound alumni. As Jason Heller detailed in our latest issue, Floor--another Sunshine State spawn--returns next week with its first new record since 2004's Dove (which was really recorded in 1994, so let's go with 2002's eponymous full-length debut) after reforming in 2010. We could go on and on about the trio, but instead we asked Floor drummer Henry Wilson (that's him in the middle) to tell us about some of his Florida legends. In case you were wondering, they're in no particular order. You can pick up a copy of his band's new record, Oblation, here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gf5f95kB6F4
Assück--Live (Bremen 1998) Rob and Steve--if you're listening, do this: Assück reunion 2015. The kids want it. I bet an Assück tour for charity would be massive. Bosses for life. Hope you both are well.
Morbid Angel's "Chambers Of Dis" (from 1998's Formulas Fatal To The Flesh) I cannot talk highly enough of Formulas Fatal to the the Flesh. It is my favorite metal album.
2 Live Crew's "Ghetto Bass II" (from 1987's Move Somethin' Huge influence on Floor. At least my appreciation for half-time. This record swept up my middle school.
Bee Gees's "Nights On Broadway" (from 1975's Main Course) Miami dudes. You might of heard of them. Diamond Status. I like this performance a lot.
Floor--Oblation (2014) My dudes. I'm a be that guy and name drop our new record Oblation. This is us living very much in the now.
