EYEHATEGOD: New Orleans Volume Dealers Kick Off US Live Takeover; New Full-Length Out Now + Band Graces The Cover Of The July Issue Of Decibel
Today, New Orleans favorite volume dealers, EYEHATEGOD, kick off their US live takeover in Atlanta. The near month-long trek follows the official decent of their long-awaited new long player. Assembled and financed entirely by the band along with US label partners, Housecore Records, the self-titled, eleven-track offering and first full-length in fourteen years was released yesterday in North America to the crucial adulation of fans and media nationally.
In a perfect 5/5 rating, Metal Underground crowns Eyehategod, “the ultimate EHG album.” Metal Insider boasts, “this entire album at times feels like being engulfed by a wet blanket on a 90-degree day… To say that this album is a triumphant return, or ‘the album we’ve all been waiting for’ are elephantine understatements. This album holds its own against some of the best of their canon and that alone makes it one of the best metal albums you’ll hear this year.” In a 10/10 score, Hellbound notes, “it’s all killer, no filler,” while MetalSucks relays in a 4/4 review, “The band’s trademark amalgamation of Ozzy-era Sabbath and side two of My War is alive and well. And while the band have been to hell and back… they don’t sound tired or fragile. They don’t sound reheated, either. This is fresh, stinking EYEHATEGOD pulling itself out of the NOLA swamps to backhand a bunch of reformed hardcore kids vapidly biting their sound. It lives up pretty much exactly to your expectations. Which is to say, it’s really fucking good.” Elsewhere, the sentiments are equal. HeavyPlanet gushes, “These sounds transcend the decades of abuse, both inflicted and received. They could have been laid to tape in 1988 and they’ll still resonate decades from now. Call it a refreshing helping of cold truth or a self-inflicted road to warped relapse. Another in a storied, weathered history of blooze-metal NOLA cocktails, EYEHATEGOD find their mark and fucking nail it,” Burning Ambulance notes succinctly, “This isn’t some midlife crisis cash-in, it’s daddy showing you how it’s done,” and Metal Injection proclaims, “in terms of consistency and sheer ‘fuck yeah’-ness this is right up there in that first tier of must-have EYEHATEGOD platters. Welcome back, boys. You earned it.”
As if that isn’t enough, the band graces the cover of the
