EYEHATEGOD continues to cause mass hearing damage in support of their self-titled LP which dropped in 2014 via Housecore Records, breaking the band’s decade-and-a-half gap since their prior full-length and marking the most successful release in the band’s twenty-five-year lineage. Having helped define the NOLA sound with their signature down-tuned, blues-inflected guitars awash in furious distortion, underpinning the tormented screams of Mike IX Williams over a thundering rhythm section, EYEHATEGOD reemerged stronger and more determined than ever before. EyeHateGod personifies desperation and addiction in the various backwaters of forgotten America, punctuated by the “N’awlins” sound of rebellion and pollution resulting in triumph over adversity.

Orders for EyeHateGod in North America can be placed via Housecore Records HERE.

“…the record that EHG fans have been waiting for; a stomping and venomous set of eleven tracks that reignite the band’s amazing propensity for down-trodden, electric blues and with their late drummer LaCaze behind the kit.” – Noisey

“…the best material of their 25-year career.” – Exclaim

“…their most entertaining release since 1996’s Dopesick… urgent and raw, as if the band hasn’t aged a day.” – Consequence Of Sound

EYEHATEGOD play to their ferociously metallic strengths while never compromising their identity as swampy sludge-rockers, and the result is an album that’s equally impressive as it is brutal.” – PopMatters
