"Abstract Artimus - Rite Of Passage, Review"

Off the charts cool! AA has a knack for cranking out grumbly but engaging tunes of gritty, existential angst, and no one else is doing this kind of thing any better right now. - IMPOSE MAGAZINE: Anthony Mark Happel

"Track Review: Abstract Artimus – “Quitter’s Face”"

Abstract Artimus ain’t no quitter. If anything, he’s a rock’n’roll lifer and workaholic, evidenced by years of constant writing, recording, and touring. His new single, “Quitter’s Face,” is his latest iteration of a consistently idiosyncratic mix of punk rock perseverance, Southern boogie blues, garage-soul vocals, and experimental estrangement. “Nobody wants to see a quitter’s face,” he exclaims in the chorus, another of his mantras, referencing his own relentless pursuit of rock’n’roll transcendence. The song has an anxiously propulsive sound until the sequence of solos that jump exquisitely into oddball psych territory. It’s compelling and rockin. - Mod Mobilian

Abstract Artimus is an American music composer and performer from Alabama currently living in Brooklyn, NY.  In his youth his father was the drummer for the Jimmie Van Zant Band (cousin of Ronnie Van Zant of Lynyrd Skynyrd) which allowed Artimus to mature around some of the most prolific Southern Rock musicians of all time.  His formative years consisted of playing an array of instruments in several different bands while touring nationally and frequenting cities in the Southeast and along the Gulf Coast.  Eventually Abstract Artimus manifested from necessity of creative freedom. Since then he has toured extensively in Europe, North and South America and has played shows with Gwar, The Dictators, Cheetah Chrome, Eyehategod, Scott Ian's Motor Sister and many more.  In 2015 he released 'The City Arrives' on the largest independent record label in Spain, Subterfuge Records.  He's currently on tour in support of his newest release 'When The Beast Is After Me'.
