EYEHATEGOD reemerged stronger and more determined than ever before with their self-titled LP, which dropped in 2014 via Housecore Records. Reaping critical acclaim globally, the record marks the band’s most successful release in their twenty-five-plus-year lineage. Having helped define the NOLA sound with their signature down-tuned, blues-inflected guitars awash in furious distortion, underpinning the tormented screams of Mike IX Williams over a thundering rhythm section, EyeHateGod personifies desperation and addiction in the various backwaters of forgotten America, punctuated by the “N’awlins” sound of rebellion and pollution resulting in triumph over adversity.
Also available are two split release. The first comes by way of F.O.A.D. Records as a special nine-inch duel release with Boston grinding hardcore veterans Psycho. Both sides were recorded live in Europe during their respective Summer tours in June – July 2011 and capture the very core of the intensity of these bands on stage, and you know what to expect: EYEHATEGOD cranks out three tormented classics of misanthropy-tinged heaviness… “Story Of The Eye,” “New Orleans Is The New Vietnam” and “Sisterfucker,” while Psycho completes the hecatomb with six short and fast stabs of rabid hardcore/grind in their own matchless style. The audio quality of these soundboard recordings is clean, powerful and heavy as a steamroller crushing your eardrums. And did we mention it’s a nine-inch?
The second release finds EYEHATEGOD back-to-back with Bl’ast! Issued earlier this year on Rise Records, the limited edition seven-inch comes in three different color variants, with 1000 pieces pressed in total. Bl’ast!’s contribution is the track “Cut Your Teeth,” which was recorded and mixed by frequent Queens Of The Stone Age collaborator, Alain Johannes. EYEHATEGOD’s portion comes in the form of “The Liars Psalm,” featuring vocal production by Phil Anselmo and Stephen Berrigan. Billy Anderson (High On Fire, Melvins) produced the drums, while Berrigan also handled the bass and guitars. Sanford Parker (Minsk, YOB) mixed it.
