this cd is a collection of songs from 7's, splits, and outtakes from the dopesick record. it has great songs that you probably never heard unless you have the 7's, like story of the eye, southern discomfort, and serving time in the middle of nowhere. and the other versions of the material from dopesick is great, like dopesick jam, depress, and peace thru war. eyehategod are one of the most overlooked band ever, this band had originality, in the time when speed was all that was improtant to metal eyehategod made the sludgiest music, since then bands have duplicated thier sound, but none have come close to being as good. i recomend dopesick or in the name of suffering before buying this one

I remember recieving this one in the mail, had seen pics of the band in metal mags and hey... the name is like candy to rebellious teenagers. Surprisingly not surprised by thier sound, more death metal than Crowbar, more punk-fueled than Neurosis, but still grinding that axe hard. Has a raw touch to the recording, fast songs, slooow songs, all raging fits of depression and anger. Truth hurts and it's too bad the band doesn't shine to hard here... A few incredibly good songs, but for the most part takes a backseat to thier others.

First, if you have the Eyehategod re-masters, you don't need this CD, as you have all the tracks from it already. Southern Discomfort is comprised of the six bonus tracks from Take as Needed for Pain and the three bonus tracks from Dopesick. The re-mastered editions came out after Southern Discomfort, so at the time, this collection of rarities had some obscure tracks. Now, if you have EHG's original CD's instead of the re-masters, you'll definitely want to pick this up. Songs that didn't make it onto regular albums are Story of the Eye, Southern Discomfort, and Serving Time in the Middle of Nowhere. Why they weren't chosen for albums I don't know, because all three are great tracks, and classic-sounding EHG. Early/alternate versions of Ruptured Heart Theory, Lack of Almost Everything, Peace Thru War, and Depress sound raw and brutal, more stark and maybe even more mean-sounding than the album versions. That leaves two medleys, Blank/Shoplift and Dopesick Jam. On both, the band combines sections of multiple songs, awesomely raging through highlights of the songs' respective albums. If you have these tracks on the EHG re-masters, pick up their Preaching the Endtime Message, featuring more unreleased rarities; and if you don't, you'll probably think this is worth having. Eyehategod are the epitome of raw music, so these kinds of recordings suit their sound perfectly.

This band is raw and has elements of punk, metal, rock, etc. Mike's vocals are as real as it gets. I love the sloppiness of their sound and this record never gets old.
