The guys in Eyehategod are good friends with that of Lamb Of God singer Randy Blythe. For those who don’t know, Eyehategod are a sludge metal act with ferocious punk attitude that formed in 1988. Among the many bands he grew up loving, a young Randy Blythe was super into Eyehategod.

During a recent conversation with the Mike James Rock Show, band frontman Mike IX Williams talked about his relationship with that of Randy; specifically, he speaks to what it was like being around a young Randy who “begged” to get on stage and perform some of the band’s music. Here is what Mike had to say:

“Randy is an old friend of ours. I met him when he was just a little kid coming to Eyehategod shows, being annoying. He used to ask — beg us, actually; I shouldn’t say ask — he would beg us to sing one of our songs during the set in Richmond, Virginia, where we played. So it’s pretty interesting.”

Back around 2016, while Williams was in the hospital and working through some serious health matters, Blythe ended up stepping in for a brief time as the band’s frontman.
