Weird t-shirt tangent:
I liked the one early Eyehategod song.
Which one, you ask?
If you heard early Eyehategod, you’d know the answer: they pretty much all sounded the same.
I say this as a huge fan of Sludge Metal.
That said, Jimmy (Down, EHG, 30% of New Orleans Metal) is a cool cat. A pretty decent drummer, as well.
If you want to check out more of the sludge goodness, he co-founded Crowbar with Kirk Windstein (ex-Down, Kingdom of Sorrow), who is one of my favorite guitarists of all time. Other bands from that area that I’d recommend are Soylent Green, Goatwhore (Down’s current bassist used to play bass for them. Both feature the same singer.), and Acid Bath. The latter is reforming, but without their original singer, so I’m not on board.
