Eyehategod

Posted Aug. 12, 2014, 5:55 p.m.

When it comes to talk about "heavy" bands and which ones reign supreme, it's virtually impossible not to mention Eyehategod of New Orleans, LA. Self-described as "down to earth motherfucken post amplification blues," the band has been doing their own thing for the last 25 years. Or at least trying to. Setbacks and bumps in the road have popped up for the band in years past whether it was in the form of Hurricane Katrina's devastation in their home of New Orleans or this past August when drummer and founding member Joey LaCaze passed away. However, the operative word there is "past." On May 27, the band released their first proper full-length since 2000. The new record, appropriately ...

One Question Interviews

October Falls

Posted Jan. 5, 2014, 3:46 p.m.

M. Lehto (October Falls) SPB: What is your day job and how does it fit (or conflict) with your artistic goals? M.

Naturally sometimes the job takes a lot of extra hours, but usually then there's no motivation to work with music anyway due to other things occupying the mind, so that makes no difference really.
