Chopper drops debut CD this month

Born to Ride…or Die

Atlanta punk metal trio Chopper crafts a heavy handed dirge that claims influences from a broad palette of many manly musics.

Everything from such classic rock icons as Black Sabbath, Blue Oyster Cult, Led Zeppelin, Motorhead, Jimi Hendrix and so on, tempered with a modern hardcore/metal edge that’s sharpened by the likes of Converge, Mastodon, Entombed and Unsane fit the bill. But the music is not wihtout a sense of humor, that usually evokes something to do with wizards, Mel Gibson, mythical beats or all of the above.

The group’s debut, 10-song full-length, Born to Ride…or Die hits the streets this month on drummer Lamar George's new label, Dark Wolf Records.

A CD release show is currently in the works and will be announced on Crib Notes very soon.
