Eyehategod's Mike IX Williams: "I Can't Damage Myself Too Much Anymore or I Might Wake Up Unconscious Forever"

The members of New Orleans sludge metal band Eyehategod don't worship Satan.

They don't kill virgins, hang them upside down over a tub, and wash themselves in blood. They don't dance inside circles of fire during full moons at midnight. They don't castrate babies, put hamsters in blenders, or microwave frogs. They don't light firecrackers inside nuns, soak Christians in kerosene, or cut the toes off anyone walking in the Holy Light. They are not a cult.

These guys just love music.
