|Nine previously unreleased tracks from terribly difficult to find singles and split-7'' are collected here, tracks that couldn't be missing from the collection of any Eyehategod fan.|
'Southern Discomfort' is not a new cd, but who cares? The sludgy, hatecore-doom that this American quintet serves us, is once again outstanding. Elementary, ultra heavy guitarriffs in the vein of bands like Sleep, Crowbar and Black Sabbath plough themselves slowly forth through a landscape of misery, anger and hate. Singer Michael D. Williams spits to everything that evokes his frustration, while his throat is twisted by pain. Managing to listen the whole way to the end of 'Southern Discomfort' means forty minutes of suffering and drudge.
Those who enjoy the immensely hard sludge doom like Grief, Crowbar or Burning Witch, can not ignore this Eyehategod collection.
