EYEHATEGOD's GARY MADER Speaks To 'Hard Edge Radio' (Audio)

Harold "Howie" Herula of the "Hard Edge Radio" show on TapDetroit.com recently conducted an interview with bassist Gary Mader of New Orleans' disciples of hardcore, blues-based, post-amplified audio wreckage, EYEHATEGOD. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.

EYEHATEGOD's new, self-titled offering studio recording was released last month via Housecore Records. The domestic version of the set comes in a CD digipack while the LP is a single slab of vinyl in a gatefold jacket. The first pressing is limited to 1600 copies and made available in the following colors:

* Black (600 copies)
* Purple (300 copies)
* Clear (400 copies)
* Purple and Grey (300 copies)

"Eyehategod" track listing:

01. Agitation! Propaganda!
02. Trying To Crack The Hard Dollar
03. Parish Motel Sickness
04. Quitter's Offensive
05. Nobody Told Me
06. Worthless Rescue
07. Framed To The Wall
08. Robitussin And Rejection
09. Flags And Cities Bound
10. Medicine Noose
11. The Age Of Bootcamp

The recording process for "Eyehategod" started with producer Billy Anderson back in the fold (he recorded 1996's "Dopesick"). The session saw both producer and band not quite on the same page and at the end, the album was unfinished. A few months later, the band reconvened at longtime friend Phil Anselmo's home studio with producer Stephen Berrigan (DOWN). Both Anselmo and Berrigan helped draw out the missing pieces to one of underground metal's most anticipated albums in years.

An unexpected tragedy occurred shortly upon returning home from a recent five-week European tour in the fall of 2013: Joey LaCaze passed away due to respiratory failure. An outpouring of condolences and tributes spread online. Enough can't be said of the loss felt by the band, family and friends. Fortunately, LaCaze's drum tracks were captured by Anderson and appear on the album, creating the definitive tribute for the member of the band who encapsulated best just what EYEHATEGOD was all about; seriously not taking yourself too seriously. New Orleans native, Aaron Hill (MOUNTAIN OF WIZARD, MISSING MONUMENTS), took over for LaCaze without missing a beat, both figuratively and literally.

EYEHATEGOD is:

Mike IX Williams - Vocals
Jimmy Bower - Guitar
Brian Patton - Guitar
Gary Mader - Bass
