Thanks for clearing that up. We wouldn't want the submitter's joke slip by without pointing that out. You must be a riot at parties.

They opened up for White Zombie/Pantera, back in '96. Absolutely NO ONE was paying attention to them through their entire set. I will continue to not pay attention to their "music".

Obviously someone in White Zombie or Pantera must have liked them otherwise they wouldn't be on the ticket.

BTW Pantera sucks -you probably also listen to Great White.

I hate that name for two reason:

1. Writing out "I hate" as "Eyehate" is just annoying as shiat, and

2. I'm not offended personally by the name, but it's such an obvious attention whoring name.  But even at that, it doesn't go all the way into full-on Anal coont territory.  So it both goes too far and doesn't go far enough.

He's not hoping for anything, he's dead, he's worm food, his consciousness and memories were obliterated.

Heh. I agree. It's like FARKers who try to use religious trolls in their log-ins. Ooo so edgy...

Jimmy Bower of Eyehategod is in the band Down with Phil of Pantera.  I was at a show on that tour too and everyone always ignores the band that goes on when the lights are still on and the arena is 75% empty.

I'm actually surprised he made it to his 40's.

I thought Jimmy Bower WAS the drummer in EyeHateGod?  I'm confused.  EHG sucks.  Down is sweet.

I saw a bunch of HouseCore bands on the last Down tour.  They were awful.

Some wiki'ing reveals to me that Bower is the guitar player in EHG.  He should have stuck to drumming, maybe that is why they were bad.  Love his swing feel on the skins.

The New Orleans based sludge metal band

Sludge metal? I'm a dedicated metal head, but I've never been able to keep all of the metal sub-genres straight. Power? Black? Death? Speed? Acid? Sludge? Personally, I suspect TFAuthor just made that last one up.

/RIP, drummer I've never heard of before for a band I've never heard of before.

Sludge has been around for awhile...

I do agree with the overall point though, far too many sub-genres.  I personally feel it's because some farkers just can't farking handle the idea that their favorite band is in the same genre as their least favorite band.  "Black metal? Noooo, they're not black metal, they're blackened-technical black speedcore death metal, whereas that other shiatty band you listed is mathcore death grind black metal.  Don't talk to me about metal, I know far too much about the scene.  Go do squat thrusts in the cucumber patch."

Have as anyone shoved an atheist/materialist opinion in the thread because of the joke of the headline? People should really get on that!

How have we gotten this far without a Spinal Tap/VH1Behind The Scenes reference? Did our brains tragically hop on a motorcycle to get a six-pack, only to spontaneously combust?

Rest in peace Sludge-y Metal Man. Those early EHG albums are fantastic.

The guy died at 42. The band hasn't been close to relevant since before he turned 30. Most people actually make something of themselves in their thirties if they're going to amount to anything.

It's just as well he died. He's just a drummer in a sludge metal band, so maybe the stage won't be level next time they get back together.

Yeah, I wasn't there for Pantera. And no, I don't care for Great White or any other hair metal band.

he was a thelemite if anyone cares about the man himself.

What's this anti-Pantera strain? Have a missed a directive to the hive mind?

He was a column of minerals hanging from the ceiling of a cave created over eons by the steady dripping of water?

That seems weird.

I grew up in New Orleans & saw them back in the early 90's at the R.C. Bridge Lounge.  Exhorder was 100 times better than Eyehate God.  But even they got ruined by the sludge bug.  Sludge metal is so terrible.  The rest of em need to OD already.

cygnusx13: What's this anti-Pantera strain?


I'm not anti-Pantera. They're just kinda "meh" to me. They had a handful of songs I liked, but most of their stuff was just bland. They did put on a decent show, though.
