Dope is any concert-goer’s dream! I’ve seen them twice already (touring with Cold, Mushroomhead, Lifer…) and they are a band built for the metal crowd! On this CD Dope introduces themselves to the world with garbled vocals and extremely energetic guitars. SPEEDMETAL!
Their other three albums that came after this have a cleaner, touched up sound compared to this one, but they all share the same enrgy. The lead singer (Edsel Dope) shows more singing talent on the next albums, but this CD rocks anyway.
If you’re looking for the extra track, this CD doesn’t seem to have one. But you can find them on “TAKE A BITE OUTTA RYHME: A ROCK TRIBUTE TO RAP” where Dope covers “New Jack Hustler” and “WWF: FORCEABLE ENTRY” where Dope provides a track called “No Chance”.
If you like this CDs raw energy and anger, then check out their latest album “American Apathy” and try to get the limited CD/DVD combo–it’s well worth it! “American Apathy” combines “Felons…” energy with the clean sound of their “Life” and “Group Therapy” albums.
SEE THEM LIVE IF YOU CAN! THEY ARE EVEN LOUDER AND MORE ENERGETIC IN CONCERT!!
