Soilent Green is an American extreme metal band formed in 1988 in Chalmette/Metairie on the suburbs of New Orleans, Louisiana. Described as a sludge metal[1] and grindcore band,[2] the group blends elements of death metal, black metal, hardcore, and bluesy, groove-oriented Southern rock.[3]

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.

Deaths[edit]

On 26 April 2004, bassist Scott Williams was killed in a murder/suicide by his roommate.[4][5]

In September 2005, former singer Glenn Rambo was killed in Hurricane Katrina.[6]

In popular culture[edit]

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.[7]
