Blood Money Part 1 is the sixth studio album by American nu metal band Dope. The album was released on October 28, 2016 by eOne Music, seven years after No Regrets, making it the longest gap between studio albums. The album charted at number 27 on the Billboard 200, Dope's highest-charting position in the US, and stayed on the chart for two weeks.[1] The songs "Selfish",[2] "Blood Money"[3] and "Hold On"[4] were given music videos in respective orders. A prequel album entitled Blood Money Part Zer0 is to be released in 2023.[5]


Metal Hammer critic Sophie Maughan gave the record a positive review, writing: "Emotional soliloquies aside, the main allure comes in the form of pounding basslines (Drug Music), twisted beats (X-Hale), and underlying old-school sensibilities with 1999 sure to delight longtime fans and stir up the pits."[6] Grim Lord of New Noise Magazine stated: "After all these years, very little has changed and I'm sure you'll be pleased with the final product."[7]

Dope is an American nu metal band from New York City, formed in 1997.

The band has released six full-length studio albums with their most recent studio album, Blood Money Part 1, being released on October 28, 2016. The lineup currently consists of founding member and lead singer Edsel Dope, guitarist Virus, bassist Acey Slade, and drummer Daniel Fox.


Musical style, influences and lyrics

Dope have been described as alternative metal,[13] speed metal,[14] nu metal,[15][16][17][18][19] and industrial metal.[20] Dope's influences include Ministry, Nine Inch Nails, Kiss, Guns N' Roses, White Zombie, and Mötley Crüe.[21][22] Dope's lyrics are known for being obscene and aggressive.[14][23] In a review of Dope's album Felons and Revolutionaries, NME said "In American Pie, a boy puts his cock in an apple pie, to let us know that there's something rotten at the heart of the American Dream. Ex-con brothers Edsel and Simon Dope, though, would probably put someone else's cock in the apple pie, cut it off, lace the pie with strychnine, and serve it up at the Clinton dinner table."[24]

In terms of composition, the band mostly relies on simplicity. Edsel Dope describes one of his songs "Pig Society" a song that "encompasses the spirit of the band at its core development. Angry, simple, and full of middle fingers".[25]

The band's song "Die MF Die" has become Dope's most popular song, and also being used during military operations. About the song, Edsel Dope explained: "It is a very progressive but very fun 'tongue in cheek' song. The real amazement to me is the power that song took on over the years and how many things it's done beyond way more than I ever thought it would. Apparently that song was used as kind of a battle cry for lots of soldiers as they went into the Iraq war and was used in training. There have been other rumours that they have used it when they have interrogated Iraqi POWs. It is kind of an aggressive song for people to lose their minds. It took on a whole other life that I had never ever imagined".[26]
