As with the successful October tour dates, the band’s reunited 1998 At A Loss LP lineup of Kirk Fisher on guitar and vocals, “Dixie” Dave Collins (Weedeater) on bass and vocals, and Ramzi Ateyeh (Sourvein) on drums, now also includes Sleepy Floyd (also of Sourvein) on second guitar.
Following their inception in 1990, BUZZOV•EN quickly created an incredible impact on music in general with their harsh, raging style of sludge metal, cementing them as both a purveying act of the genre, as well as a longtime great. After imploding and disbanding in 1999, the group revamped things and reformed in 2010, bringing their chaotic and caustic live rage back to the stage. Following the December tour, BUZZOV•EN will appear at 2011’s annual Roadburn Festival in Tillburg, Netherlands in April, as well as this year’s installment of the Maryland Death Fest in Baltimore in May.
