Slaves on Dope - _Inches From the Mainline_
(Divine Records, 2000)
by: Adrian Bromley (1 out of 10)
More like inches from falling into my trash can. Ugh!? This is absolutely horrible. This major label debut by Canuck (now L.A.-based) act Slaves on Dope is just like a shot to the head. It is so full of cliche metal sounds and nu-metal styles that I cringe at what they have become. Take the styles of Pantera, Soulfly, Korn, Deftones, Godsmack, Boiler Room, Slipknot, Incubus and any other OzzFest nu-metal band and you've got the music of Slaves on Dope. I don't know what people are raving about, 'cause this band really does nothing for me. This just goes to show that marketing and label influence can piece together a sound and image that'll please thousands, but nauseate those like me. One of the worst discs of 2000.
