As with BUZZOV•EN’s previous 2010 mini-tours in October and earlier this month, the band’s classic lineup from their At A Loss LP lineup of Kirk Fisher on guitar and vocals, “Dixie” Dave Collins (Weedeater, Bongzilla, etc.) on bass and vocals, and Ramzi Ateyeh (Sourvein) on drums, now also includes Sleepy Floyd (Sourvein) on second guitar.
Following their inception in 1990, BUZZOV•EN quickly created an impact on the metal scene with their harsh, raging style of sludge, cementing them as both a purveying act of the genre. After disbanding in 1999, the group revamped things and reformed in 2010, bringing their chaotic and caustic live rage back to the stage. BUZZOV•EN will appear at The Netherlands’ annual Roadburn Festival in April, as well as this year’s installment of the Maryland Death Fest in May, and will have much more news to announce throughout the new year.
