OUTLAW ORDER – Dragging Down the Enforcer

Scathing, alcoholic, vitriolic, cavity-inducing sludge metal from New Orleans? What are the odds? Who wants to bet that members of EYEHATEGOD and SOILENT GREEN are involved? On their followup to 2003’s Legalize Crime EP, OUTLAW ORDER‘s debut album, Dragging Down the Enforcer, unleashes the disdain and agony one would expect from these hurricane surviving parolees with a palpable rage that practically oozes out of your speaker. Essentially EYEHATEGOD without Jimmy Bower, OUTLAW ORDER doesn’t stray far from that sound. Although the songs are less bluesier and more immediate, they drive “singer” Michael D. William‘s piss and vinegar filled points home in a much more direct and focused manner. Engineer/producer David Troia soaks up the band’s rage with more clarity than EYEHATEGOD‘s albums. But make no mistake, Dragging Down the Enforcer is as mean and filthy as they come. Another unflinchingly bleak outlook on life and the world as captured by four anguished, yet talented souls, forming a whiskey-soaked mountain of malice, suitable only for those brave enough to listen.

OUTLAW ORDER Featuring Ex-EYEHATEGOD Members Sign to Season of Mist

The new band formed by ex-EYEHATEGOD members sans guitarist Jimmy Bower, OUTLAW ORDER, has signed with Season of Mist. Their debut album, Dragging Down the Enforcer, will be released October 13th.

Frontman Mike IX Williams had this band update:

“New Orleans own EYEHATEGOD have served up 20 years and 7 albums of original, painful and misanthropic feedback laden Hardcore Blues to an ever increasing doomed climate of world-wide despair and degradation and have absolutely managed to have fun doing it. Multiple tours of Europe, the USA and even Japan have seen these southern gentlemen ‘Preaching the End-Time Message’ and influencing new generations of hedonistic roustabouts to spread their Rock-n-Roll nihilism since 1988. The band will play at One-Eyed Jack’s on the 3rd anniversary of Katrina, Friday August 29th with CROWBAR and HELLKONTROL.”
