Seeking Inspiration in Suffering: An Interview with Mike IX Williams of Eyehategod
Interview by Parisa Eshrati
Following three years of constant touring and lineup changes, New Orleans sludge metal pioneers Eyehategod are showcasing their evolution as a band. Their newest album, A History of Nomadic Behavior, re-introduces the group as a four-piece with a distinct variation in their sound: cleaner vocals and production, but still true to EHG's aggressive and misanthropic core. We spoke with frontman Mike IX Williams during their US tour with GWAR and Napalm Death to discuss the maturation of their sound, creative nihilism, and channeling pain into motivation.
