I highly recommend this album to any fan of hardcore/punk/metal.
Andrew Lynch
Some of the other songs are great, some are just alright, but there isn't a single bad song on the album.

If you liked Pantera, Down, or any other hardcore or rock bands, don't waste your time with Superjoint.

So i was reading some of the negative reviews of this album and at first i couldn't believe what i was reading. I mean, how could so many people not like one of my favorite bands. Well, it's simple really. It seems like there are all of these expectations of what superjoint should or shouldn't be.

Some people think that they should sound like pantera because of phil... some think that they should sound like black flag since the flag were an admitted influence... still others think that maybe they should sound like eyehategod just because jimmy bower is in the band.

The fact is, they don't sound like any one band. They are doing their own thing, even if it isn't the most popular thing. Certainly, they aren't the most technically proficient band, and by no means are they the hardest band around. They do however, have attitude, energy, and some great lyrics(no, not profound, either you get it or you don't).

If you like bands like down, eyehategod, crowbar, black flag, acid bath, soilent green, or black sabbath, chances are you will like these guys. Just don't buy the cd expecting a copy of anybody else.

...by the way the production value is excellent on this recording. Dave Fortman produced "lethal dose" with the same clarity as with "confederacy of ruined lives" by eyehategod. (this is a good thing, for those of you not familiar with that album)

If "Use Once & Destroy" was a kick in the teeth, "A Lethal Dose of American Hatred", the new album from Superjoint Ritual, is a punch to the gut. Musically, the band sounds a bit more evolved than on they're debut (even though both albums are only a year apart), but the true old school hardcore/metal with a punk vibe element remains. Phil Anselmo sounds better here than he did on "Use Once & Destroy", and the band as a whole is tighter sounding. Tracks like "Waiting For the Turning Point", the excellent "Dress Like a Target", "The Destruction of a Person", "Death Threat", and "The Knife Rises" are all headbanging cuts, but the album as a whole is too short. It leaves you wanting more, but just about anything featuring Phil behind the wheel, whether it be Pantera, Down, or even Viking Crown, has that effect. All in all, "A Lethal Dose of American Hatred" is one of the better metal releases this year, but hopefully the best from Superjoint is still to come.

Superjoint Ritual's latest album, A Lethal Dose of American Hatred,finally puts out a metal album in 2003 that true metal fans can enjoy. Its not the pseudo-metal junk you usually hear on the radio. Much of Anselmo's angered lyrics focus the current opinion of the world on America and America's attitude on everyone else. Somewhat introspective on religion and politics. Superjoint (aka Phil Anselmo's latest project) doesn't match the skill and power of Pantera or Down. If you expect this to reach the par of those bands, then don't buy it. But its like putting a local Kiss cover band together with only Paul Stanley. Just isn't the same level. Now its still a lot better than most of the garbage out today. I only bought two albums this summer, Metallica's St. Anger and Lethal Dose. And the latter is much better. A true metal fan will listen to this album straight through and headbang in your living room or rock out in the car.
... your best bet would be to buy it on Amazon. All in all a good metal album with plenty of quotable lyrics.

Where to begin... Well if you are a die hard Pantera fan you must buy this album with a degree of understanding, There are no amazing guitars period, just thrash speed and breakdowns. The drumming although heavy could not lick Vinnie's balls on a bad day. Phil himself takes somewhat of a different yet amazing aproach to his vocals.
Now all this may sound somewhat negative but do not [freat]! In an era that is producing little to no quality heavy music Superjoint ethrals you with some bad ...thrash/punk/hardcore styling. Lyrically Phil takes a step back more to the roots of emotion and anger rather than just stating dominance in metal as Reinventing the Steel did. Overall, rock it, blast it get the juices flowing and love it for what it is.. blistering heavy music that is not afraid to spit in your face and kick you in the gut

Many people are quick to judge this record based on Phil Anselmo's acheivements and sounds with other bands, and they shouldn't do that. Superjoint Ritual has its own sound, quite apart from Phil's other musical projects-- what he did in Down and Pantera should be irrelevant when discussing what he's doing here. Unfair judgment notwithstanding, this album is still weak. Pantera's end was inevitable, but I am sad Phil abandoned Down to focus on this muddled, chest-thumping mess. If the notorious Phil Anselmo were not at the helm of this racket, it would be mired in complete obscurity where it belongs.
The music is an unfocused barrage of one simplistic, hammering riff after another. I have no problem with intense, hammering riffs-- Slayer has made a living off them, and deservedly so. But this sounds uninspired and gets tough to listen to after the first couple of songs. The drumming is particularly irritating-- it's nearly the same amateurish banging every song. Great riffs and excellent percussion make up the backbone of legendary heavy music. "Lethal Dose" has neither, and the result is something much less than Phil's public claim that this heralds the rebirth of heavy music. It could be the rebirth of aging, declining musicians making a last desperate grasp at street credibility, but in that case Metallica has beaten Superjoint Ritual to the punch with "St. Anger".
The whole thing sounds suspiciously like a Phil Anselmo midlife crisis album. Let's be real folks: the vocals are terrible. If you didn't know Phil was singing, you wouldn't be listening. The tone of the vocals never changes, it just sort of plods along at a dull general roar, hammering away like every other part of the music. It's sad.
