Despite their band name, Eagles of Death Metal is not a death metal band. The story goes that a friend was introducing Homme to the death metal genre. When he played a song by the Polish band Vader and made a claim that the song was within the death metal genre, Homme then referred to Vader as “The Eagles of Death Metal”. After hearing this phrase, he wondered what a cross between the Eagles and a death metal band would sound like. With that, the band was born. With a sound that’s a combination of “bluegrass slide guitar mixed with stripper drum beats and Canned Heat vocals,” and a frontman in Hughes who is known for his over-the-top stage histrionics and evangelistic interaction with his fans, the band’s live performances are a sight to be seen.
EODM has released four studio albums to date — Peace Love Death Metal, Death By Sexy, Heart On, and 2015’s Zipper Down — and has toured the world extensively over the past two decades. A brand new studio album is in the works for a worldwide release in 2019.
