Hailing from what the band openly refers to as, the new Vietnam; Eyehategod descended upon New Orleans in 1988, they’re highly regarded as one of the early pioneers of the sludge and doom metal genre.
In their 23 years they’ve created a landmark legacy that’s influenced a whole generation of aspiring doom warriors, whilst creating an undisputed cult like following that has placed them in the high leagues of such legendary sludge and doom artists like Neurosis, St Vitus, The Obsessed, The Melvins, and Kyuss.
Hailed by critics, hated by the law, and worshipped by their fans, Eyehategod are as real as any band can possible get, with out dying for their art.
They’re a no holds barred, totally uncompromising, all out assault on the senses.
With 4 studio albums to their name, their last being “Confederacy of broken Lives” (released in 2000), Eyehategod went on hiatus in the early 2000’s around the time that Jimmy Bower’s commitments to DOWN took precedent, after which time all the members of Eyehategod, minus Jimmy, formed Outlaw Order, a like minded side project that captured a similar level of intensity.
In 2012 Eyehategod released their first new recordings in almost 12 years, the first release being a single aptly titled “New Orleans is the new Vietnam”.
In November Eyehategod will be making their very first voyage south of the equator.
