EYEHATEGOD are literally legends in the worlds of both sludge and metal so news of their first album after 13 years has been greeted with quite some excitement. Ditto the first track off it which you can hear below. The self-titled album will be in stores on May 26th, 2014.
The press release includes these quotes from front man Mike IX:
“I have to say I don’t believe we’ve lost nary a step in the creation of this album and we think these newer songs are a killer combination of classic EHG mixed along with our best production, mixing, engineering and songwriting in 13 years.”

Now crack on and listen to Agitation! Propaganda!
