Unholy Divers: Eyehategod

UnholyDiver-EHG-f

It’s been over a year, but welcome to the second edition of Unholy Divers, a sort-of new series where we immerse ourselves in the discographies of bands we should be more familiar with, but for whatever reasons, just aren’t.

To quickly re-state the purpose here: there’s only a finite amount of time we have for our existence, but a quick glance at Metal Archives shows the number of bands to nigh infinite.   Hell, it seems the amount of genres they don’t cover is just as large (sorry, all things that end in –core).

We all have our blind spots, it’s just some are more glaring than others.

Unholy Divers is our attempt to close the gaps. Each column will take a deep dive (*rimshot*) into a different band’s catalogue with the aim of giving ourselves a better sense of what the cool kids have been talking about all this time.  

So without further ado, let’s go down South and wade into the sludge of… Continue reading

Two days in a row because I need to run a really long way tomorrow and this is the first thing on the to-do list that’s going get sacrificed.

CANTO: Taake, Argus, Eyehategod, and More

2/27/2018. I’m halfway through the week. I guess that’s good.

  • Eyehategod have announced a March tour with Cro-Mags and Buzzov*en. Could be fun, but I’ll probably miss this one.
  • Another tour! (I’m being lazy today.) Armored Saint with Act Of Defiance. July and August. United States of America. Moving on.
  • Not sure if you’ve seen those Taake shows being canceled due to (mostly) Hoest’s idiocy that dates back to 2007, but the tour looks to be canceled entirely. I’ve seen Taake a couple times and they didn’t suck. That said, this is gonna happen when you implement questionable imagery and lyrics, regardless of how many apologies are made.
  • Argus have released a video for “Devils Of Your Time”. This one was taken from the album, From Fields Of Fire, which dropped last September.

Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news — mostly tour date announcements, but news nonetheless — you might have missed from yesterday:

    • Leading off, in “tour packages that don’t make sense,” we’ve got Stone Sour and Steel Panther! Because reasons. Anyway, they’ll be going around to these places in September and October.

Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from the last few days:

    • Leading off, an amusing tidbit from the world of Napalm Death: apparently, the band’s Spotify streams have gone up more than 200% since frontman Barney Greenway appeared on a radio show teaching ex-Labour Party leader Ed Miliband how to scream. (Miliband still can’t scream.)
