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.
