2 x LP | "10 Years Of Abuse (And Still Broke)"
2020 | SVART RECORDS
COLOUR: Green / Black Splatter
No one album could ever capture the claustrophobia-to-catharsis of an EYEHATEGOD show, but this compilation of live tracks and demos comes as close as it gets. Giving you an idea of EYEHATEGOD´s uncompromising, single minded purity of expression and exertion of raw nerve, "10 Year Of Abuse" is a monumental document all the way from the demo era to their later, legendary relentless live tour set.
Many other bands have tried unsuccessfully to emulate EYEHATEGOD and have never quite captured their dynamic. Formed in 1988 in New Orleans, USA they have become one of the most well known bands to emerge from the NOLA Metal scene.
EYEHATEGOD note bands like MELVINS, THE OBSESSED, DISCHARGE, BLACK FLAG, BLACK SABBATH and SAINT VITUS as major influences, but are often mentioned in the same breath as any of these legendary bands. Drawing comparisons to Grindcore, Crust, Punk and Sludge Metal, their heavy bluesy, detuned Rock And Roll has been a lynchpin for the misanthropic and disenfranchised. EYEHATEGOD has released five studio albums to date with a sixth in the works and have toured all over the world in a career spanning over thirty years. Though the band has never released a live album, we are left with "10 Years" as the only official witnessing document to decades of decimating live sonic abuse.
Released on May 29, 2001, "10 Years" spans seven live tracks from their European tour in 2000, a live radio show from August 1994 and four songs from an early 1990 demo. The result is a feedback-laced window into that wonderful, brutal EYEHATEGOD "sound", that addictive, lower-than-low note that nestles somewhere in the pit of your burning, alcohol-soaked, nauseated stomach.
