Eyehategod : Confederacy of Ruined Lives

The kings of sludgedoom are back in line! It was to be expected after the collection 'Southern Discomfort' and the European tour earlier this year.

A short description for those who don't know the band: Eyehategod shits on everything that looks pretty and succesful, something that is in particular emphasized by enfant terrible Mike Williams who is spitting his hate and frustration. Another typical element of the sound of this band, is the sludgy, ultra heavy, rounded wall of guitar sound that gives you the impression that you wade knee-deep in the hazy swamps of Louisiana. You can easily compare Eyehategod with Sleep or Grief.

The music on 'Confederacyof Ruined Lives' is (fortunately) not yet beautiful, but it's still very addictive. Fellow doomfreaks, Eyehategod sounds even more eager and heavier than before, so make sure that you don't miss this CD!
