In the years between Eyehategod’s last release in 2000 and their new self-titled album, we’ve seen the rise and fall of nu metal, two new US Presidents, three new Prime Ministers, Gangnam Style, Harlem Shake and a Partridge film in a pear tree…

And Eyehategod still sound like Eyehategod, and it’s brilliant.

Sunday Slaylist: Hevy Festival 2013 – what might’ve been…

August 4th, 2013

Hevy 2013 cancelled Thrash Hits

This weekend would’ve been the fifth Hevy Festival…but as you no doubt know by now, the festival was forced to cancel their event this year. They tried to schedule a replacement all-dayer at the Brixton Academy here in London, featuring some of the biggest bands on this year’s (cancelled) bill…but as you also know by now, they had to cancel that too.

It’s not been the best year for Hevy Festival, truth be told.

Even MORE free music – this time it’s a 20-track mixtape from Southern Lord

August 2nd, 2011

The Power Of The Riff Southern Lord Thrash Hits

This is last free download thing we’ll post today – we promise. Southern Lord have put together a killer 20-track mixtape to mark The Power Of The Riff, the tour/festival-thing they’ve got set to tear up the West Coast of the USA later this month. Why should this be of interest of anyone here in Blighty? Well, because said mixtape features acts like All Pigs Must Die, Black Breath, Early Graves, and Trap Them, that’s why.

That and the fact that they’re giving it away for free.

Interview: Eyehategod – “I ended up cutting my hand open and dripping blood all over the studio”

June 1st, 2010

Mike Williams, wasn’t just sitting on his arse while Jimmy Bower was off touring with Down – well, except for the time he was in prison. Amit Sharma caught up with the EyeHateGod frontman earlier this year when the band hit London.

It’s fair to say that Mike Williams of Eyehategod has not had it easy these last five years. In that time, he lost his house, and pretty much all his worldy possessions to Hurrican Katrina. While staying in a motel in the aftermath of the hurricane, he was arrested for drugs offences and spent several months in prison. While there, Williams went through the joys of heroin withdrawal.

Yeah, he’s not had it good.

HEAVIEST. WEEKEND. EVER.

April 9th, 2010

It’s not often we say this – fuck, it’s probably the only time we’ve ever said it – but this weekend London is just Too Damn Metal. Not only are EyeHateGod playing at ULU tomorrow (Oh. Hells. Yes!), but the number of metal events going on this weekend that we actually want to go to (as opposed, y’know, to shitty clubnights full of children listening to shitty punk music) actually exceeds our ability to attend.
