Eyehategod

Eyehategod was back to it's old tomfoolery at Europa on 10/26, just two days after they done-gone-and nearly sunk the Temptress with Goatwhore, Pig Destroyer, and Strong Intention (figuratively speaking, of course). The band was greeted by a sold out house and a similarly killer lineup at Europa, with BV faves Unearthly Trance, Tombs, and Howl, and accompanying tourmates Strong Intention in Greenpoint.

In between cigarettes, snot rockets, cigarettes, spitting, and more cigarettes, Eyehategod cranked out a booming set that added insult to injury; classics like "Dixie Whiskey" were piled on to "Sister Fucker (Part I)" and magnificent renditions of "$30 Bag". Powerful riffs were mimed with open mouths. Fists were raised. This was a killer set, and I'm pretty sure that everyone there enjoyed it as thoroughly as I did.

There were moments during the show when I got the impression that Eyehategod didn't have a 100% comfort level with each other on stage; song starts/stops seemed carefully coordinated between band members with deliberate, darting looks and nods. If anything, that makes their performance all the more impressive; once they did hit that first note, EHG would settle into a decimating and singular groove. Absolutely riveting.

The Metal coverage is probably the best part about this blog with all the hipster or disco BS out there.

Could somebody please buy the female guitar player in Howl another shirt. I have seen them numerous times and have yet to see her wear anything else.
We get it you like Entombed

not enough broner coverage

Posted by jarsOFclay | October 29, 2009 4:42 PM

Definitely keep up the metal coverage! Hell, how about a little more wimpy indie-pop, too. I like to have a mix.

Goddamn you New Yorkers, I'd have to wait until May to see Eyehategod at Maryland Death Fest, and you guys get to see Unearthly Trance and Tombs at least once a month. >;/

Too much metal on Brooklyn Vegan? Absolutely. God knows the turds in tight green pants, yarn scarfs and Elton John glasses get completely ignored around here. I can hear their vaginas crying right now!

"too bad europa blows"

Yeah because they book 90% of the great metal and punk shows there.

You're an idiot stay at Bowery.

October 29, 2009 3:27 PM : Not enough articles about indie-pop bands in stupid costumes for you?

Posted by Anonymous | October 29, 2009 7:41 PM

I like a variety of music and Eyehategod was pretty damn great live. Much better than I thought they would be and tight live.

Tombs were also great with a sort of Godflesh influence. Howl was a nice addition to the show too.

The dudes in Unearthly Trance are also in a lo fi black metal band called Villains, and also a French black metal band called Glorior Belli. KVLT!!!

That was crazy when the bassist for Unearthly Trance blew his bass head. I'm still not sure why he had it cranked up in the first place... Here's an EHG clip for you all-
