Eyehategod Frontman Mike IX Responds To Senator Jason Rapert

New Orleans sludge metal legends Eyehategod has recently found themselves in some hot water with Republican Senator Jason Rapert of Arkansas. A poster for their upcoming show in Little Rock (see below) displayed the politician biting a baby, who responded by labeling the band as “extreme liberals” who “torment his stand for better moral values.” Rapert also urged people not to attend the venue (Vinos,) demanded the band and venue issue an apology, claimed they have “no respect for babies lives or people of faith” and that they invited the Satanic Temple to the city.

Eyehategod frontman Mike IX has issued a retort to the Senator, which reads as follows:

“Open letter to Sen. Jason Rapert (R):

“Thank you for all the attention you’ve given the EyeHateGod show in Little Rock, Arkansas. Any image that was used of you is protected under the First Amendment, which supposedly protects us ‘Americans.’ Please stick to destroying peoples lives by trying to ban same sex marriage, opposing medical marijuana legalization, threatening minorities, and absolutely attacking women’s right to choose. Your moral crusade against basic human rights will be fought at every turn.

“Mike IX Williams

Tome Of The Unreplenished Releasing Debut Full-Length “Innerstanding”

“Innerstanding” is the debut full-length album by a mysterious atmospheric black metal project from Cyprus: Tome Of The Unreplenished.

Sole member Hermes used to play bass guitar with the satanic black metal outfit Necrosadist, but with Tome Of The Unreplenished he explores the hidden regions of the soul, abandoning himself and the listener to an emotional roller coaster of transcendental, cosmic beauty.

In Hermes’ own words, the project is “An artistic musical project created as a source of self expression and visualization, combined with a soothing yet dismal form of language and execution. The representation of conceptual philosophy, progression, and elevation through sound.”

The album was mixed at The Temple Of Flesh by A. Dictator and mastered at Wormhole Studios by Valdimir Uzelac. The track listing is:

1. Anima Mundi
2. Take me to the Stars
3. Emanation of the Purest Essence
4. Transcended Body
5. Planetary Transmissions
6. A Monument in Time
7. The Precessional March
