Eyehategod

American sludge band from Louisiana who are known for their dark, sludgy riffs combined with equally dark lyrics. Like many sludge metal bands, Eyehategod draw on both stoner/doom influences as well as hardcore punk.

Eyehategod have noted Melvins, Black Flag, and Black Sabbath as key influences to their sound. This, combined with heavy, detuned, and bluesy riffs dominate the band’s sound. They are combined with walls of feedback and distinctive tortured vocals to create a truly misanthropic vibe.

While Jimmy Bower was busy playing drums for Down, rather than sit on their laurels, the other 4 members of Eyehategod formed a side-project called Outlaw Order (abbreviated to OO%). The band released a limited edition 7” EP in 2003 called Legalize Crime, which has since been rereleased on CD with a bonus live track and is available through Eyehategod’s webstore. The criminal theme is apparently because at the time of formation, all 5 of the members were on probation, and have consistently been in trouble with the law. Marc Shultz is currently serving a prison sentence and so has been replaced by Justin Grisoli. The band have recorded their 13 track debut full-length and will release it sometime soon, they are “waiting for a label worth a fuck”.

Easily one of the most grim and we-just-don't-give-a-fuck-anymore sounding bands. I own their Take As Needed For Pain CD for over a year and a half now and there isn't a single CD that gets as many plays as it. I even ripped it on a casette to play in my car. I think Outlaw Order played/plays on Hellfest this year!

Definitely one of my favorite bands. I might actually prefer Grief's sound a bit more, but it's a serious toss up lately.

Take As Needed for Pain is easily their best, hands down, no questions.

Exactly. I bought it a couple of months ago and was very happy with it, as it contains a couple of splits and some unreleased material from the Dopesick sessions. But now that I bought the reissued and remastered version of Dopesick, half of Southern Discomfort is obsolete. :(

Technically, you might as well just listen to Take As Needed For Pain and Dopesick because all of the tracks on this comp are demos of those both albums.
