Massive Metal Monday: EYEHATEGOD “Medicine Noose”
  |  @   |  

EYEHATEGOD is one of the most influential bands to ever emerge from the New Orleans music scene despite their sparse output. Formed in 1988, the sludge metal legends have only managed to release 5 albums due, in part, to the band members’ penchants for heavy drug use and side projects. Singer Mike Williams, in particular, has fought a very public battle with heroin addiction. Guitarist Jimmy Bower is a multi-instrumentalist who has also been in Crowbar and Phil Anselmo’s supergroups Down and Superjoint Ritual. In his absence, the other four members of the band have a side project known as Outlaw Order.

This week’s Massive Metal Monday track is “Medicine Noose” from EYEHATEGOD’s self-titled 2014 album
EYEHATEGOD. Sadly, it is the final album to feature founding drummer Joey LaCaze, who passed away in 2013 from respiratory failure.

This MMM is dedicated to the memory of Joey LaCaze.
