Drones and clean playing before adding in high pitched black metal screams and a fast and raw musical direction which also brings in blast beats and dark sounding melodies and then the music slows down and adds some sludge influences into their depressive black metal sound while they also keep around the fast parts.
Bass guitars have a very powerful sounding presence on the album along with the slower sections bringing in some very heavy doom/sludge metal and spoken word samples are also brought in briefly on a couple of the tracks and the band also brings in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the band also adds in a good amount of drones and harsh noises with the guitars and amps.
Sound effects can be heard in certain sections of the recording and they make the music sound a lot more experimental as well as giving the album a more underground industrial edge while the faster and raw side of black metal is the most dominant sound to be heard on this recording and they also add in some of the more modern elements of this musical genre into their sound at times, one of the later tracks sees the band stepping away from black metal for awhile to create some dark and evil sounding drone before making a return back to that direction as well as sounding more raw and vicious as well as adding in a few seconds of acoustic guitar playing, the last track sees the band adding in melodic Gregorian chants in the background and the song is very long and epic in length and goes for more of an ambient noise direction.
american creates a very interesting sound with their music with their style being mostly in a raw and depressive direction and they make their sound more diverse by adding in sludge, doom metal, drone and harsh noise elements, the production has a very dark and raw sound while the lyrics cover dark, violent and depressive themes.
In my opinion american are a very great sounding mixture of raw black metal, sludge, punk, industrial and noise and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ritual Suicide" "Lamb To Slaughter" and "Solace in The Silence". 8 out of 10.
