The godfathers of sludge EyeHateGod hit the Rebellion in Manchester on the 14th August dragging with them Japan’s stoner doom pioneers Church Of Misery, whose current album Born Under A Mad Sign was released a few weeks back through Rise Above Records, and local support coming from APF Records, by way of Stockport, sludgey noise rockers Under.
Hosted by Manchester promoters Riffolution who put on a hell of a night as the hot, sweaty and completely rammed venue was bouncing from the rafters making it a difficult night to shoot, but hey, that’s all part of the fun isn’t it? All three bands went down a storm and it’s been a while since I’ve had to dodge stage divers to protect my camera while EyeHateGod ripped through a colossal set of old and newer material, cementing their rightful place as legends of the sludge and doom underworld.
