Soilent Green is an American grindcore and sludge metal band that hails from (Chalmette/Metairie, Louisiana) the suburbs of New Orleans.

Overview[edit]

Soilent Green was founded in 1988. Their début album wasn't released until 1995, when Pussysoul came out on Dwell Records. The following four albums were released by Relapse Records, until they signed with Metal Blade Records for their 2008 album, Inevitable Collapse in the Presence of Conviction.

The band have had their share of tribulations, even violence. On 26 April 2004, bassist Scott Williams was killed in an apparent murder/suicide by his roommate.[1][2] Then, in September 2005, former singer Glenn Rambo was killed in Hurricane Katrina.[3]

In 2009, they were featured on the first episode of season four on the Adult Swim show Squidbillies, episode 41, entitled "Lerm". They performed the main title theme in a cowpunk/sludge style.[4]
