Weedeater Sixteen Tons on LP
Cape Fear's own Weedeater - featuring the notorious "Dixie" Dave Collins, formerly of Bongzilla and Buzzoven - are like no other heavy band. With a style and presence that is unfiltered, unrefined, and unruly, the notorious North Carolina trio have burned through the heavy rock underground for over fifteen years and released four albums along the way including …And Justice For Y’All (2001), Sixteen Tons (2003), God Luck And Good Speed (2007), and Jason...The Dragon (2011).
Following their massive 2001 debut, the crushing Sixteen Tons kept the buzz growing, while critics were still struggling to put a tag on their sound. Nearly everybody agreed that stoner rock, doom, sludge and some crusty elements were part of the mix, which the band simply calls "weed metal." Produced by renowned engineer Billy Anderson (Eyehategod, Neurosis), Sixteen Tons is available on vinyl for the very first time courtesy of Season of Mist.
"Weedeater's brand of swamp-doom takes the Southern sludge fundamentals to whoe new places - the first great queasy listening album..." - Terrorizer
"You need to hear this record. It probably could have been called 100 Tons and that still wouldn't overdo it. Get this and get heavily evil." - Roadburn
