Take a moment to appreciate a few small miracles--Mike IX Williams is alive, he's sober, and he's singing on a new Eyehategod album. Five or six years ago, none of those outcomes would have seemed likely. "My whole agenda was getting wasted until the day I die," Williams told Decibel's Greg Pratt in 2017, shortly after receiving the liver transplant that saved his life.
New Orleans misanthropes Eyehategod have passed the 30-year milestone of making the most deranged and influential doom metal, though it has come with a cost. Founding drummer Joey LaCaze passed away in 2013, and longtime lead guitarist Brian Patton stepped away from the band in 2018. After decades of hard living, vocalist and acid-tongued frontman Mike IX Williams suffered liver failure and underwent a transplant.
