Noisey, the music arm of VICE, has launched the first in a seven-part series, "NOLA: Life, Death And Heavy Blues From The Bayou", examining the people and the culture that helped foster bands like DOWN, EYEHATEGOD, CROWBAR, ACID BATH, GOATWHORE and many others. Check it out below.
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.
