Peace, Love, Death Metal is the debut album by Eagles of Death Metal released on March 23, 2004.

Making of the album[edit]

Eagles of Death Metal is a garage rock band fronted by Jesse "The Devil" Hughes. The album was recorded primarily by Jesse Hughes (credited as "J. Devil Huge" or "Mr. Boogie Man") and Josh Homme (credit as "Carlo von Sexron" or "Baby Duck"), and featured guest appearances by Tim Vanhamel (dEUS, Millionaire, Evil Superstars), Brody Dalle (The Distillers), Nick Oliveri (Queens of the Stone Age, Kyuss, The Dwarves, Mondo Generator), and Alain Johannes & Natasha Shneider (Eleven, Queens of the Stone Age, Desert Sessions).

Josh Homme told MTV News that the band is led by Hughes. "I just sit behind the drums and play rock and roll, which is a great change of pace for me. J. Devil writes everything, every lyric and riff, and he's a fantastic songwriter. He and I go through and arrange them, and I lay down harmonies, but it's really his thing. It's the antithesis of the bloated rock-attitude bullshit I've had to deal with recently". Josh Homme promoted the band when appearing on the Lollapalooza tour with Queens of the Stone Age in 2003 wearing an Eagles of Death Metal T-shirt.

  4. ^ Harding, Luke; Willsher, Kim (14 November 2015). "From dinner in Paris to a 'war on happiness' in 15 minutes". The Observer. The group had been on about an hour and they'd just said “We love you Paris” and started singing a song, Kiss the Devil, with the words ‘I met the Devil and this is his song’ when we heard very clearly some explosions. [...] There was blood everywhere around us [...] A body fell on me [...] My neighbour, a man of around 50, was shot at directly in the head, and bits of his brain and flesh fell on my glasses.
