Noisey, the music arm of VICE, presents "NOLA: Life, Death And Heavy Blues From The Bayou", a seven-part series examining the people and the culture that helped foster bands like DOWN, EYEHATEGOD, CROWBAR, ACID BATH, GOATWHORE and many others.Launching on September 16, the series features appearances from names like Philip H. Anselmo (Housecore Records, DOWN, ex-PANTERA), Mike IX Williams (EYEHATEGOD), Jimmy Bower (EYEHATEGOD, DOWN, SUPERJOINT RITUAL), Kirk Windstein (CROWBAR, ex-DOWN), Pepper Keenan (CORROSION OF CONFORMITY, DOWN), and Sammy Duet (GOATWHORE, ex-ACID BATH), among others, discussing the bands, Hurricane Katrina, drugs, suicide, murder, and records that helped shape the New Orleans sound known the world over. From the crawfish-littered tables of the secluded Anselmo compound to a fishing boat with EYEHATEGOD in the swamps, Noisey delves in deep with the NOLA natives on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting on September 16 and coming to a conclusion on October 7.
