Biography

New Orleans, United States (1988 – present)

Eyehategod (also abbreviated and referred to as EHG) is an American band from New Orleans, Louisiana, which formed in 1988. The band is known for their dark, sludgy riffs combined with equally dark lyrics. Like many bands, Eyehategod’s sound is influenced by , as well as .

Eyehategod have noted Melvins, Black Flag, Saint Vitus, Swans, Flipper and Black Sabbath as key influences to their sound. This, combined with heavy, detuned, and bluesy riffs dominate the band’s sound. They are combined with walls of feedback and distinctive tortured vocals to create a truly misanthropic vibe.

While Jimmy Bower was busy playing drums for Down, the remaining 4 members of Eyehategod formed a side-project called Outlaw Order (abbreviated to OO%). The band released a limited edition 7” EP in 2003 called Legalize Crime, which has since been re-released on CD with a bonus live track. 2008 saw the release of Outlaw Order’s debut full-length, titled Dragging Down the Enforcer.

    The new album is amazing, have the vinyl. This is the diamond in the rough of the awful material released by big name sludge/doom bands this year, alongside Thou's Heathen. New Electric Wizard is shite, and the new Sleep is ok, sounding too much like Om.

    They were recently robbed of thousands of dollars in material from their van. Go to their facebook, everything's there. If you got anyway of helping 'em it'd be appreciated.

    New album is pretty good. Certainly better than most run of the mill sludge out there.

    they were never close to the perfection of their first LP anyway. okay, "take as needed for pain" is also a good album. new albums is disappointing, eh... listen to METH DRINKER instead.

    New album is superb. Great balance between the classic EHG sound and adding something new.
