Eyehategod is a New Orleans-based sludge metal band that formed in 1988. They are also close friends with the grindcore band Anal Cunt, whom they have played multiple shows with. The band is most known for their heavy, down-tuned, and bluesy guitar riffs, as well as their tortured vocals with lyrics centered around substance abuse and suffrage. The recording sessions were infamously chaotic and involved the studio owner frequently calling the band's producer to ask if they are insane. Most members of the band also had side acts like Down, Soilent Green, and Outlaw Order.
