The New Orleans legends Eyehategod came for the first time to Croatia specifically to Vintage Industrial Bar in Zagreb the 9th of May 2018. Together with them we got to see the band Killed A Fox from Zagreb which dabbles with alternative metal a psychedelic rock. Killed A Fox has been playing for quite a while; since 2006 and they managed to find a fairly unique sound. The atmosphere the band brought was very laid back with a numerous jokes with the audience and a very charismatic feel to the whole gig. You could see a lot of work and effort put into the performance; everything sounded amazing and for the whole set of 45 minutes it was a real pleasure listening to them.
Eyehategod is an oldschool band that practically founded the sludge metal genre. I would just like to mention the weed and pills donation on the mercy stand; a nice touch. Even too you could clearly see that they were wildly intoxicated that fact didn’t at all reflect on the sound perhaps that made it even better.
A kind of special approach to the audience, waving around wine bottles on stage and spitting everywhere for me an accurate representation of what sludge metal is and should be. Truly a concert worth seeing.
