Buzzoven is a sludge metal band from North Carolina, formed in 1990. The band was known for being one of the founders of the sludge genre along with NOLA’s Eyehategod and Acid Bath, and also for their out-of-control and violent live shows. The band in it’s early days toured heavily around the United States and built up a cult following leading up to the release of their debut album, To a Frown (1993), which caught the attention of Roadrunner Records, who released the band’s second album Sore (1994). The band was dropped by Roadrunner, and from then on have gone through several periods of being split-up and reformed, with the only constant member having been Kirk Fisher. “Dixie” Dave Collins now heads sludge band Weedeater. This new album from Buzzoven is a full collection of their most popular songs and focuses primarily on the tracks that are played live. After a standout performance at Maryland Deathfest 2016, Buzzoven has reformed for select festival dates and short tours around the United States. In 2017 they will be a feature act at a few European festivals and touring the states.
