As with BUZZOV*EN's previous 2010 mini-tours in October and earlier this month, the band's classic lineup from its "At A Loss" LP of Kirk Fisher on guitar and vocals, "Dixie" Dave Collins (WEEDEATER, BONGZILLA) on bass and vocals, and Ramzi Ateyeh (SOURVEIN) on drums, now also includes Sleepy Floyd (SOURVEIN) on second guitar.
Following its inception in 1990, BUZZOV*EN quickly created an impact on the metal scene with its harsh, raging style of sludge, cementing the band as both a purveying act of the genre. After disbanding in 1999, the group revamped things and reformed in 2010, bringing their chaotic and caustic live rage back to the stage.
BUZZOV*EN will appear at The Netherlands' annual Roadburn Festival in April, as well as next year's installment of the Maryland Deatnfest in May.
