Expertly melding several different musical genres into a singular, cathartic style, American Head Charge has forged a demonic sound that is a cross between the manic fury of Slipknot, the chaotic diversity of Mudvayne, and the industrial madness of Ministry. Leading the charge is an explosive combination of frenzied riffs, moody harmonies and visceral effects, countered by a massive rhythm section composed of combative drum work and dominating bass rhythms. Produced by Rick Rubin.
Sirens, industrial noise, and ultra-intense vocals from singer-programmer-guitarist Martin Cock kick off The War of Art's aptly titled opening cut, "A Violent Reaction", and from there this 16-cut debut from American Head Charge serves up more heavy nu-metal bolstered with intelligent, disturbing lyrics. Like Slipknot, Mudvayne, Slayer and other doomsayers, this seven-piece line-up's severe musical and lyrical take on modern society is more for moshing than humming, though songs like the surprisingly melodic and dynamic "Just So You Know", the spooky "Fall" and "Effigy 23" break up the grind of songs like "Seamless" and the pounding speed-metal onslaught of "Americunt Evolving into Useless Psychic Garbage".
'All bands want you to believe that what they say comes straight from their guts. With American Head Charge you know it's true because it's all out there on display' Kerrang!
NME (3/2/02, p.15 ) - "...outstanding slab of modern heavy metal..."
CMJ (8/27/01, p.20) - "...Aiming its cannons, grenades and shotguns at point-blank range...its spliced with programming and aggro geetars much [like] Slipknot..."
