EyeHateGod are not for everyone. Their sacrilegious monicker should tell you that much.
Fans of extreme music will feel right at home with 'Dopesick', however. Throughout the duration of the album, the band create a violent brew of ground-shaking bass lines, bluesy riffs and shrieked/snarled vocals. The aural bludgeoning is generally built up through painfully slow sludge, the emphasis being on the incredibly deep bass and groove-laden guitarwork. Elsewhere, there are points where the music speeds up to grindcore velocity, therefore leading to a somewhat more diverse experience.
Overall, 'Dopesick' is a strong album but just lacks any genuinely killer tracks. Those with a trained ear for such music will eventually pick up on the subtleties, making for a rewarding listen.

Eyehategod are one of these interestingly unknown bands that many famous people namecheck from time to time, this alone i think keeps this band going. But there is music behind the name and this album is a heavy, full of vocal screams and distorted guitar affair, if u like the heavier side of pantera or grindcore is your thing, then it is well worth getting, If u like the occassional melody and a bit of subtlety then look elsewhere. I found this album a bit one sided to start with and although I didn't really know what the band should sound like, I definately got a shock, if super-heavy is your thing then the album will grow on you and it will be rewarding, a good introduction to the world of grindcore.

Every track sounds the same, miserable distorted noise, slow(occasionaly fast) abrasive horrible sound. No idea what the lyrics are but makes Rollins sound like a happy pixie. How they expect to sell any records making this kind of noise is unfathomable. It is so depressing it somehow cheers you up. I love it, best thing I have bought in a long time.

Your salvation from nu-metal crap! 12 Aug 2005
By B. Parker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Wow. I bought this CD on a whim after reading a blurb about it in Blender. It has blown my mind! Lost your job? Girlfriend left you? Eyehategod are there for you.
I've gotten bored with overtly costumed Euro metal (Cradle, Dimmu Borgir, Children of Bodom) and growl-laden Death metal (everyone else). That's why Eyehategod is a revelation. No choral breaks or violins. No Cannibal Corpse-type grunting. Just pure aggression. From the opening scream and breaking glass of "My Name Is God (I Hate You)", these guys have you by the throat. No melody, no strict musical form, just the purity of a riff and a scream. Feedback is used to its utmost. Eyehategod is so merciless with their audible limits, they make The Melvins sound like Yes.
They always manage to stay heavy, even when they never move above mid-tempo. I'm not too familiar with the "sludge" metal genre, but these guys are just awesome. Be warned - this isn't the kind of music you're gonna be able to turn people onto. "It sounds like it was recorded in a garage." "This guy just screams all the time." Screw 'em, it's good to have heaviness for its' own sake. Hold this CD tight, and it will take you through the darkness.
If you are curious about Eyehategod, I strongly recommend this CD. Buy it, play it in your car, and by the third track you'll be screaming into your windshield and running over children. Ah, what fun....
Great CD tray photo, too.

Just about as misanthropic as one can get 29 Dec 2008
By TimothyFarrell22 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In 1996, metal, alternative, and nu-metal were all huge. Despite all this, EyeHateGod had no chance of commercial appeal. The New Orleans sludge metal quintet were just about as misanthropic, nihilistic, and flat out depressing as one could get. For a mainstream who thought Korn sounded as if they were going through a lot of pain, EyeHateGod would no doubt send them into an emotional turmoil. The guitar work and riffing were always stretched out to the point of no return, almost like Black Flag played at a tenth the speed. The bass droned ad infinite, making the listener stuck in the group's living hell. The drummer is always in the background, but aware of the right speeds for every song. The vocal work by Michael D. Williams is one of the most easily distinctive in all of metal. Metal is a genre known for often indecipherable vocals, but Williams are possibly the most unintelligible out of them all. Seriously, it sounds as if the man is speaking in his own painful language most of the time.

"Dopesick", while not my favorite album from the group (that'd be "Take As Needed For Pain"), is probably their definitive statement. It's certainly the most well recorded, as many of their earlier records are hampered by poor sound quality. As for the songs themselves, they're what one can expect from the group, with occasionally a catchy riff surfacing here and there (particularly the Sabbath-like "Dixie Whiskey"). Again, Williams' vocals are obscure as always, but song titles such as "My Name Is God (I Hate You)" and "Anxiety Hangover" give the listener an idea of what hes talking about. Ultimately, this is the kind of metal record which separates the men from the boys. Mall core poseurs wearing Mudvayne and Disturbed tee-shirts will be left terrified at the recording. However, those with a taste for the more extreme sides of American metal or even old school hardcore really need to own this. Its one of the best metal albums of the 90s.

GOOD OL' LOUISIANA SLUDGE 13 May 2001
By Duderino_1 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I got this CD about 3 years ago and everytime I listen to it it never fails to impress me. This was the first CD I purchased by EHG and it most definately wasn't my last. I also have to say that this CD influenced my bass playing big time. This album is drenched in negativity, not to mention feedback. Mike Williams screams like he's in serious pain, both emotional and physical and judging from the autobiographical lyrics printed in the liner notes he just might be. Both Jimmy Bower and Brian Patton lay down the southern/sludge riffs that have become the trademark for EyeHateGod. Vince LeBlanc, makes the riff all the more solid by adding superfat basslines. Joe LaCaze keeps time with excellent drumming that can stop and start on a dime. If there was a story behind this album it would be that these songs are the last few thoughts that flash through a mans mind before he puts a gun in his mouth and pulls the trigger. If you're looking for something happy and upbeat then go listen to Blink 182; however if you want a trip into parts of the mind you'd rather not venture to then pick this album up, you won't be dissapointed.

Sludge True To The Core... 28 Jun 2002
By Mental Concept - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have to admit, I have not always been an Eyehategod fan. But after listening tho Down's 'Nola' (one of the finest recrodings ever) I had to check them out. So I bought this. Holy Sh-t. This is just perfection in every sense of the word. This has got to be one of the best records of all time. The guitars, the vocals, the bass, the everything about this band is just perfect. Though I have bought 3 more Eyehategod albums since this one, they don't quite mach up with it. I mean songs like "Zero Nowhere" (my personal favorite), "Methanphetamine", "Ruptured Heart Theory" and "Non Conductive Negative Reasoning" are some of the best metal recordings of all time. There is no way in hell that this album should be passed up. I would recomend this to everybody. Rock on...

The most CATHARTIC Metal album ever! 8 Oct 2007
By B. Parker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Bought this CD cold a few years back. It has twisted me beyond all recognition! Lost your job? Girlfriend left you? Eyehategod are there for you.
I've gotten bored with overtly costumed Euro metal (Cradle, Dimmu Borgir, Children of Bodom) and growl-laden Death metal (everyone else). That's why Eyehategod is a revelation to me. No choral breaks or violins. No Cannibal Corpse-type grunting in front of anonymous blastbeats. Just pure aggression, but with such a slow groove that you're awaiting the release of Michael William's screams. From the opening scream and breaking glass of "My Name Is God (I Hate You)", these guys have you by the throat. No melody, no strict musical form, just the purity of a good riff and some shredded vocal cords. Feedback is used to its utmost. Eyehategod is so merciless with their audible limits, they make The Melvins sound like Electric Light Orchestra.
They always manage to stay heavy, even when they never move above mid-tempo. I'm not too familiar with the "sludge" metal genre out of the South, but Eyehategod have become my heroes. Be warned - this isn't the kind of music you're gonna be able to turn people onto. "It sounds like it was recorded in a garage." "This guy just screams all the time." Screw 'em, it's good to have heaviness for its' own sake. Hold this CD tight, and it will take you through the darkness.
Now, I updated to this remaster a little while ago - my old copy was played to death. I haven't had a good stereo to compare the sound quality, but given that it was recorded only 12 years ago and the kind of music it is, this version sounds great. The main thing you see on this is three more tracks - "Depress", "Peace Thru War (alt. version)" and the "Dopesick Jam" (my personal favorite). They are morsels added onto a already satisfying steak. My only complaint with this set is that with the restyling of the album art, the old photo under the CD tray is gone. That was a nice vintage bondage shot.
Anyway, buy this album - it is GLORIOUSLY HEAVY! Play it in your car, and by the third track you'll be screaming into your windshield and running over children. Ah, what fun....
