Eyehategod announce new self-titled album

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on 12th March 2014 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

New Orleans’ infamous band Eyehategod are set to release their first studio album in over thirteen years through a partnership with Century Media for the world outside North America and Japan. Housecore Records will be releasing the new Eyehategod album in North America while Daymare Recordings will handle the album’s release in Japan. The album, which is self-titled, is pencilled for release on 26th May 2014.

The recording process for the new album started with producer Billy Anderson back in the fold (he recorded 1996’s Dopesick). Anderson tracked drummer Joey LaCaze’s tracks prior to LaCaze’s tragic passing last year. A few months later the band reconvened at longtime friend Phil Anselmo’s home studio with producer Stephen Berrigan (Down) to finalize the recording. Mixed by Sanford Parker (Voivod, Corrections House), the album was entirely put together and financed by the band who later shopped it around to labels. With long last friendships with many of the CM European staff, they felt this was the best home for them. Frontman Mike IX mentions:

I have to say I don’t believe we’ve lost nary a step in the creation of this album and we think these newer songs are a killer combination of classic EHG mixed along with our best production, mixing, engineering and songwriting in 13 years. The main and total tragic break in the chain, was obviously last year’s death of our great friend and drummer Joey Lacaze. However, his original drum tracks made it onto the final master recordings and we’re fucking psyched about that…

The first song from the new album, Agitation! Proganda!, can be heard below.

Demonic Death Judge – Skygods

Posted in CD, Metal with tags , , , , , on 9th October 2012 by tobiasgray

Band: Demonic Death Judge
Album: Skygods
Release date: 5th October 2012
Genre: Stoner/Doom Metal

 

Down & dirty.  If that’s how you like your doom, you’re in the right place!  Demonic Death Judge’s fifth release is a metal stoner’s dream. Looping progressions of down tuned, dirty riffage, extended swirling freakouts and a varied vocal performance from despairing screams to wizened clean singing.

Both stoner & doom are definitely ‘headspace’ genres – in so much as you won’t be playing this album in the sunshine, getting psyched up for a night out; but when it’s time to come down, kick back and dim the lights, Skygods brings the tunes you need.  Demonic Death Judge have just supported Entombed, and while they are traditionally received by a more death metal based crowd, fans of Entombed could easily get into these eight tracks – especially live, where the wall of noise & powerful grooves are strongest.

If you aren’t feeling sludgy, this album is very much a take it or leave it, but with patience & repeated listens, the subtle beauty & message woven into Skygods is revealed.  Fans of Eyehategod, Raging Speedhorn and the like will feel comfortable enough to accept the chant like clean vocals when they manifest, and the jazzy drum breaks interspersed throughout the album offer enough of a ‘different’ flavour to catch the attention of those not listening to this through a haze of smoke.

Finally, the 70’s psychedelia tinged cover is gorgeous, props to the designer, for raising expectations of the music before a note is even played!

4/5
