EYEHATEGOD (also known as EHG) is an American rock band from New Orleans, founded by Jimmy Bower and a different line up in 1988. Soon after the group formed, Mike IX Williams became the 2nd vocalist and Joe LaCaze became the 2nd drummer, followed by Brian Patton on guitar. The band solidified in sound and style except for a revolving bassist position. Gary Mader joined in that capacity for a Japanese tour in 2002 and has remained there ever since. As one of the most influential bands to come from NOLA, they have noted Black Flag, The Melvins and Black Sabbath as a domineering and significant influence to their sound today. That combined with the sound of Southern Rock, Blues riffs and Hardcore Punk has made EYEHATEGOD one of the most reputable and distinctive bands ever, even defining a brand new genre now known as Sludge, though the band strays away from being labeled as such.
Magrudergrind was formed in 2002. The District of Columbia-based band dropped their self-released first record as delinquent teenagers and have since put forth countless splits in addition to two full lengths. Owing much to the close-knit global DIY punk community, since its inception the band has toured Europe and North America multiple times, Puerto Rico, Japan, and South East Asia with the likes of Misery Index, Unholy Grave, Phobia, and Rotten Sound. In 2007, Magrudergrind released their first full length, Rehashed, on Six Weeks Records.
2009 saw Magrudergrind's sophomore full-length, self-titled record on Willowtip Records, engineered by Kurt Ballou (Converge, Misery Index, Torche) and mastered by Scott Hull (Pig Destroyer, Phobia). A sonic escalation of the band's previous amalgam of grindcore and DIY punk, Magrudergrind's acclaimed self-titled release sent them into 2010 with notable appearances at the Scion Rock Festival in Ohio on March 13, the Maryland Deathfest, Memorial Day weekend and Hellfest in Clisson, France in June.
In 2011, Magrudergrind will release the "Crusher" EP on Bones Brigade Records and RSR in Europe. Two-thousand-and-eleven sees Magrudergrind appearances at the eclectic SXSW Music Conference in Austin, TX and premier European metal festivals in Holland, Portugal and Czech- Neurotic Death Festival, SWR Festival and Obscene Extreme Festival.
Magrudergrind will tour the East Coast US will fellow powerviolence/grindcore West Coast contemporaries Despise You in September 2011.
