“The ‘Swamp Rebel Machine’ is basically us, it’s our story” says front man Adam Joad. “It’s about the stuff that makes our motor run – stuff from many generations of Appalachian kin mixed in with some Cajun magic for good measure. The hills out here have a lot of mysteries and supernatural elements and we wanted to capture that.”
Scattered Hamlet is honky tonk metal mixed with a handful of cheap trucker speed with enough octane to survive a nuclear war. Created to capture the essence of growing up in the country while giving nods to the original classic rock and outlaw country pioneers, Scattered Hamlet is one part Lynyrd Skynyrd and Molly Hatchet and one part Motörhead and Down, featuring a sleazy southern influence laced with heavy rock elements.
Scattered Hamlet’s influences range from southern rock to groove metal to doom metal with the attitude of punk rock. With humble origins all across the US and a relentless touring schedule of 100+ shows all across America, the band makes no apologies for the equal love of Harley Davidson’s, honky tonks, Les Pauls, Marshall’s, shotguns and classic American symbolism.
