Vice Magazine’s music portal, Noisey, presents the second episode of NOLA: Life, Death And Heavy Blues From The Bayou, a seven-part series examining the people and the culture that helped spawn bands like Down, Eyehategod, Crowbar, Acid Bath and so many others.
In part two, Mike IX Williams discusses finding kindred spirits in Jimmy Bower and Joey LaCaze and creating a band, “that’s like Sabbath, but a punk band,” with Eyehategod. Enduring hardships like drugs and Hurricane Katrina, Eyehategod persevered into 2013, only to have tragedy strike yet again.
