Dook – Who The Fuck Are They?

Spread the metal:

Reviewed: January 2002

Rating: 2.0/5

This is the second release from Dook that I have reviewed and it’s the second one that has a question for a title. Their first release was WHY ON ME? Which was released in 2000. I am not going to go into the history of the band cause you can check back for my review of their last CD in our CD review archive. The only note that I will make is that they have added a second guitar player by the name of Benjamin. WHO THE FUCK ARE THEY is a 7 song e.p. that clocks in at just over 31 minutes. “Endless Pain” kicks off the Cd with some aggressive track that does its best to sound like a cross between Machinehead and Slipknot. Whats with the Slipknot worship? I honestly don’t understand it. “No Future” is a pretty good tune. Almost a 70s punkish vivbe with actual singing instead of screaming. Of course there is the requisite screaming where the solo should be and strangely it sounds like the Deftones. “Back Off” is the speedster of the bunch and closes out the Cd with lots of aggression and screaming.

When I reviewed this bands first CD I was on the fence. They had a definite mallcore vibe but some of their stuff was pretty good. I was just hoping that they would forsake the mallcore trend and move in a heavier more metal direction. Alas, I guess that is not the case. They have created a more coherent CD with a good production but have moved in a more mallcore less metal direction.
