"Walk With Knowledge Wisely" is the first song from Crowbar’s upcoming album ‘Symmetry In Black’

Preorder ‘Symmetry In Black’ on iTunes - http://ow.ly/vvPO5

Behold! This ancient ritual, this divine act.  The one clear way to transcend the boundaries of the corporeal plane is to merge our flesh.  The co-mingling of our physical beings opens the doorways to the ethers, to vivid truth.  I consume you and, in turn, I am consumed by you.  Love is the law, love under will.  The purest connection, the strongest bond.  All of the struggles, the weaknesses and faults, slip away.  All of the masks, the anger and secrecy, slip away.  Essence unveiled.  The universe revealed.

Following countless years of personal hardships, studio disasters and times of music industry indecision, New Orleans’ own EYEHATEGOD, with much relief and excitement, are proud to announce the release of their brand new full-length! Entirely assembled and financed by the band, the self-titled, eleven-track long player will be released on May 27th by their partners at Housecore Records in North America, May 26th by Century Media in Europe, Australia and New Zealand and May 21st by Daymare in Japan.

Comments vocalist Mike IX Williams, “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 EYEHATEGOD mixed along with our best production, mixing, engineering and songwriting in thirteen 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… As for working with Housecore, it was a no-brainer. We’ve always been a family, and will always remain a family.”

Adds Housecore founder Philip H. Anselmo, “Being a part of the new EHG record is a dream come true. I’ve known, supported and loved the guys for almost as long as I’ve been playing music myself, and it is our pleasure here at The Housecore Records Compound to have ‘em aboard. And I gotta mention, having heard the new record, this is the EYEHATEGOD record every true fan has been waiting for…. Hail!”

As a band that helped create a genre as well as equate a city with a sound, EYEHATEGOD has always remained humble anytime words like “legend” were thrown around to describe them. The thing with legends is that they grow stronger in time and over the years, word of mouth has been kind to the band. EYEHATEGOD is bigger now than they ever have been in their twenty-five plus years as a band. Pretty impressive seeing as they haven’t released a full-length album in almost fifteen years. Most people who know the band have a story to tell or they heard a story about the guys. Whether it was them playing nothing but feedback to a bewildered White Zombie crowd during their opening stint for the arena metal band in the mid-nineties, being banned from a certain venue for attacking a promoter with a barstool or cleaning out entire small towns of their drug supply, these stories spread throughout the metal community over the years, usually through a game of one-up-manship, establishing them as one of the most notorious bands around.

Certainly not the first band to be surrounded by myth and lore, EYEHATEGOD’s staying and growing power ultimately comes from the music. No one riffs like Jimmy Bower and Brian Patton. Drummer Joey LaCaze grooved and held it together with numerous bass players throughout the years, doing so impeccably with Gary Mader over the past decade. Singer Mike IX Williams has always been able to encapsulate the ruins of life through his lyrics and vocal delivery. All combined, the music is the most genuine, distressing cacophony of sound around.

“Black Sabbath mixed with Black Flag with a little bit of Skynyrd and the element of blues thrown in there,” Bower once said of the band’s sound. In 2014 that style might sound somewhat commonplace. In 1988 it most definitely was not. The band’s second album, 1993’s Take As Needed For Pain is the pinnacle album that other bands of this genre to this day try to reach. Today, EYEHATEGOD sounds as fresh and innovative as ever. When the band released its first new track in over a decade, “New Orleans Is The New Vietnam,” it was clear that nothing about the band had changed. They were touring more than ever and used that time and energy to work on an album’s worth of songs. At the end of 2012 they were ready.

The recording process for Eyehategod started with producer Billy Anderson back in the fold (he recorded 1996’s Dopesick). The session saw both producer and band not quite on the same page and at the end, the album was unfinished. A few months later, the band reconvened at longtime friend Phil Anselmo’s home studio with producer Stephen Berrigan (Down). Both Anselmo and Berrigan helped draw out the missing pieces to one of underground metal’s most anticipated albums in years.

An unexpected tragedy occurred shortly upon returning home from a recent five-week European tour in the Fall of 2013: Joey LaCaze passed away due to respiratory failure. An outpouring of condolences and tributes spread online. Enough can’t be said of the loss felt by the band, family and friends. Fortunately, LaCaze’s drum tracks were captured by Anderson and appear on the album, creating the definitive tribute for the member of the band who encapsulated best just what EYEHATEGOD was all about; seriously not taking yourself too seriously. New Orleans native, Aaron Hill (Mountain Of Wizard, Missing Monuments), took over for Joseph LaCaze without missing a beat, both figuratively and literally. The band hit the road after wrapping up the record and plan to embark upon their most exhaustive touring schedule to date.

THOU / THE BODY “Released From Love”

his is not a split, but a total collaboration between both bands on all tracks.

THOU has been active for over 7 years, honing their sound over dozens of releases. Stereogum called their most recent full length, Heathen (Gilead Media), “…dark, bombastic, hugely ambitious album of great sorrow, but perhaps even greater beauty.”

THE BODY is two men who have been recording, playing, and consuming heavy metal together for most of their lives. Their newest LP, Christs, Redeemers (Thrill Jockey), is so original and devastating that The New Yorker called THE BODY “…[One} of the most remarkable acts bubbling up from the extreme-metal underground.”

On this collaboration everything comes to its peak. Everyone’s voice is heard, through instrument or otherwise, clearly defining their role in the project. All the things that make both groups special are apparent and fleshed out.

This is a VINYL ONLY release. No CDs or digital distribution. All lps are on 180 gram black vinyl, heavy weight covers, and have letter-pressed inserts by Beck Levy.

Eyehategod “Agitation! Propaganda!” (NEW)

Dystopia - Backstabber

And to think
I fucking trusted you
You never cared
Like a fucking doormat
You wiped your feet
On my dignity
So what
you caught me
When I was down
I must have been blind
To think your actions
Constituted any love
Liar !!!

The Body - Hail To Thee, Everlasting Pain 

The Body released Christs, Redeemers late last year, and on April 1 (in the U.S. and March 31 in the UK), they’ll release a new one. I Shall Die Here, out via RVNG, has the duo working with Bobby Krlic, aka the Haxan Cloak. Check out “Hail to Thee, Everlasting Pain” below. It features vocals by Ben Eberle.

According to a press release, on I Shall Die Here, “the tried and true sound of The Body is cut to pieces, mutilated by process and re-animated in a spectral state by the newly minted partnership.”

In addition to Krlic, the Portland-based duo of Lee Buford and Chip King also worked with their long-standing collaborators and engineers Seth Manchester and Keith Souza. In a statement, they said they wanted to make an album that was “wholly experimental”.
