Eyehategod: 25 years of survival


They’ve been around for 25 years and they’ve never stopped performing on stage – and yet it took the band 15 years to release a new record. Eyehategod has been through a lot in their career, most recently with the passing of drummer Joey LaCaze due to respiratory problems. But as singer Mike Williams IX tells us in the following interview: “We are survivors”. It is that state of mind that drives the band forward and makes its members indefatigable. It’s also what life has offered, or rather thrown at them through the years (in Williams’s case, the list goes on forever and would have precipitated a less resilient man into complete neurosis) that makes Eyehategod’s music so vicious and so tormented.

The self-titled album is out, so enjoy it, people, because Eyehategod’s offerings are rather scarce. It was a one-of-a-kind opportunity to ask the singer a few questions about the album, the death of their drummer and everything else.

Hellyeah will give blood for blood


After releasing four albums with Hellyeah, drumming legend Vinnie Paul is definitely back on track. The band is going forward at a determined, confident pace, seeming barely even concerned by the turmoil that caused the departure of guitarist Greg Tribbett and bassist Bob “Zilla”. Vinnie Paul doesn’t want to hear about a Pantera reformation. Vinnie Paul is looking ahead to forge a new legacy with Hellyeah.

In the following interview, the man talks about Blood For Blood – “the best fucking abum we’ve ever made”, according to him – and the latest line-up changes. More generally, he also talks about the spirit that’s driving the band, their motivations, their goals, and his own history. Just in case you missed our dossier on the subject, it was also a good opportunity to talk about the 20th anniversary of Far Beyond Driven, arguably Pantera’s heaviest album. And let’s not forget Vinnie Paul’s other passion, food, which always makes his mouth water and his eyes light up.
