Opium Lord: Eye Of Earth

Album Review

Brummie sludge crew invoke it like they smoke it

There are a lot of bands – enough to fill that moon-sized sinkhole in Siberia, at a conservative estimate – who try to rip off Eyehategod by essentially rehashing their riffs and pretending they have a drug habit, completely ignoring the fact that what made albums like Dopesick so threatening was the fact that NOLA’s finest sounded like they did because they lived it. No copycat bullshit; they sounded deranged because they mostly were.
