Legendary New Orleans sludgo sadsacks Eyehategod lead off an exceptionally diverse metal bill. Hell, it would be a must-attend event even if it wasn’t on a damn boat! Eyehategod have been doing their itchy, uncomfortable bummer-Melvins slowpoke blurble for 20 years now and are no worse for the wear. On the other side of the spectrum is Pig Destroyer, America’s best grindcore band, who not only has a voracious appetite for lightning quick blasts but a deep understanding of noise and texture. Rounding it out is über-blasphemous black-death-groove hybrid Goatwhore. . . and someone is going to be sacrified to the Hudson River sea beasts. With Strong Intention.
