"Quite loud and akward, words cannot really describe it.
They have a sound all their own. Like said - "disturbance" is very creepy. Your woofers may not survive the bass in this CD. It is not some "bass" CD per se, but the bass is killer.
The overall sound is very powerful, yet not real fast. All the noise of speed metal without the speed.
It is good, but do not even try to understand the format of the lyrics. They are there, but not in order."

"Sludge metal is one of the most unique and defying forms of music out there, and it was also some of the first music to come out there. Ever since Black Sabbath established the genre with their signature "Sweet Leaf" song, it has gotten respect, especially from the South.
Eyehategod is one of these bands, and mixed the sludge sound with elements of 80's hardcore punk to make something that broke barriers in the underground. True, they may not be as diverse in their music as say, Acid Bath or Soilent Green, but their music played a major role.
Downtuned guitars, slow tempos and riffs make Eyehategod who they are. Music by stoners for stoners. It's brilliant. "Shop Lift" and "White N*gger" are just two examples of the brilliance of this CD. And note, the production isn't good, but why even bother? If you enjoy it slow, sludgy, and full of depth, "Take As Needed For Pain" is your prescription."

"blues and hardcore merge in one of the most furiously nihilistic albums ever, with just enough black humor and swinging NOLA groove to avoid the self-indulgence of newer bands in this style like soilent green. it's funny how doom metal bands who write about real life are always the darkest and most disturbing."
