Appalachian Terror Unit is a Huntington, West Virginia anarchist crust punk band. The often mispronounced "Appalachian" in the band name is pronounced "apple-AT-chin" as guitarist/vocalist Chris clarified in a mid-'06 Profane Existence interview featured in PE #52/53. Members are: Sarah (vocals), Chris (guitar, vocals), Phil (drums), and Matt (bass). ATU cites influences from Detente, Amebix, Anti-Cimex, old Sepultura, Final Warning, Misery, and bastard. However many have compared them to Nausea, so much so that according to Chris they have been nicknamed "Extinction Side 3" by some. ATU released a 7" titled 'Armageddon Won't Be Brought By Gods' in early 2007 on Profane Existence. They are expected to release a full-length LP on PE in the near future.
