Savannah, Ga.'s Black Tusk are currently laying a hurtin' on their current tour with Weedeater. Drummer James May checked in from the road, offering his thoughts on why Georgia has exported some of the best up and coming metal over the past several years, with the likes of Mastodon, Zoroaster, Becoming the Archetype and Black Tusk spilling out of the state.

"Our scene is heavy, it's loud, sweaty and proud," May told Noisecreep, perhaps rhyming unintentionally. "There seems to be something in the water down here and everyone's had a big glass! The bands from Georgia are like a big family. We are helping each other out, working hard and staying on the road."

Black Tusk are currently on the road with Weedeater and filmed a video with director Kevin Custer, who has shot vids for Hatebreed, Flogging Molly and Tombs, to name a few. The video is for 'Red Eyes, Black Skies,' which will appear on the band's Relapse debut, 'Taste the Sin,' due out May 25.
