Eyehategod - _Dopesick_
(Century Media, 1996)
by: Gino Filicetti (
Louisana's most hate-filled, puss-ridden purveyors of dark, disgusting dirge are back, and they just don't give a fuck (once again). EYEHATEGOD's new album, _Dopesick_, continues the band's trend of rage, raunchiness, and uncontrolled hate. Produced by Billy Anderson (Melvins, Neurosis, Mr. Bungle) and C.O.C. (!) guitarist/vocalist Pepper Keenan, this album is not something for the weak of heart, or the easily intimidated. The music here is the super slow, back home southern "metal" type that could make you fall asleep if it wasn't for the incessant grind of it all. Micheal Williams' vocals are the utmost sickening, puke-ridden audio atrocities that could actually prove deadly if taken in large doses. Songs such as "Dogs Holy Life", "Zero Nowhere", "Methamphetamine", and "Lack of Almost Everything", by their titles alone, show that this band isn't joking around when it comes to their depression. Haters of life, love and God, these New Orleans dirt packers are back and just waiting to be excreted on March 26. So lock up the women and children, and subject yourself to 39 minutes of uncontrolled agony.
