We Come In Peace

Review by Eric Meli

We Come in Peace is D.O.A's 14th studio album in their 35 year history of putting out fine hardcore punk rock. This CD is no exception with Joe Keithley sounding and writing as good as ever.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2012  Volume 5 at

Track by Track Review
He’s Got A Gun

There’s a great beat, with a kind of catchy almost rockabilly sound to this track.

This one is fast and hard, the way hardcore is supposed to be.
Dirty Bastards
Here is one of my favorite songs on the disc. It has a Celtic punk sound to it.
Do You Wanna
This track is about the consequences of excessive partying.
We're Bloodied but Unbowed
Here we get a song that centers on how we should remain strong while our freedom is being taken away.
Bring Out Your Dead
Another fast and hard track, this one is about zombies.
War Hero
This is an interesting version of a Toxic Reasons song.
We Occupy
Jello Biafra does guest vocals on this cut about challenging Wall Street.
Who the Hell Do You Think You Are
This track has a great ferocious anthemic feeling to it.
Lost Souls
Another of my favorite songs on the disc, this has a little slower almost folk song feeling to it.
The Man with No Name
This song starts out sounding like a spaghetti western theme but the moves more into something like a rockabilly feeling.
Personally I think this is the best song on the CD. It is a very well done hardcore cover of the Beatles song.
Walk Through This World
A reggae/dub style track, this is a cool song.
General Strike
This track is a CD only acoustic version of their classic cut.
