5.0 out of 5 stars AHC are Feeding us all again. February 15, 2005
Format:Audio CD
After falling in love with "war of art" that came out in 01' i have been waiting for a new album from AHC. Finally the "feeding" is out. After a few listens it is brutal, intense, and has all the rawness of the first cd, but with a more mature sound to it. AHC is a force to be wreckened with in the metal world today, this is one of the first great! metal releases of 2005, and should be enjoyed by all of the headcharge fans and alot of new fans should jump on this diesel that is AHC. (stand out tracks are #1,3,8,11)

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST ALBUM SO FAR IN 2005!!! February 17, 2005
By Snot
Format:Audio CD
"THE FEEDING" is AHC's sophomore album... I gave this album a 5 because it is a very very solid album that's why it has 11 tracks... VERY HEAVY AND AT TIMES IT'S ALSO VERY MELODIC... so far this is the best album that I've heard in 2005... stand out tracks are: LOYALTY, PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE, DIRTY, COWARDS AND ALL OTHER TRACKS... THEY ARE ALL EXCELLENT!!!! This album is a must buy... to all who haven't heard about American Head Charge, you're missing A LOT! AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE RULES... \m/

4.0 out of 5 stars Good album, bad follow-up June 17, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Let's face it, this record is not as good as The War of Art. I was taken a bit aback when I listened to it - my first reaction was that of being painfully unmoved by the whole thing. I listened to it once or twice right when it came out and shelved it. I came back for listens sporadically, but each time I was only slightly more interested in it. It took until now, three or four months later, to really digest it and form an opinion about it.

It's not as bad as I had initially decided, for sure. There's some great songs on this album. "Loyalty" is a really good single that got my hopes up for this album. Most of the things I loved about War of Art are present in this song. Other songs that I've grown to love are "Dirty," "Fiend," "Walk Away," and "Take What I've Taken." My absolute favorite song on this album is "Ridicule": it stood out to me right away as something totally new for A.H.C. It's probably one of the most emotional songs they've written up until this point. There's a new, creepy, almost Mushroomhead-esque vibe to these songs, and I would have loved to hear more like them on the album.

Unfortunately, the other half of the album sees A.H.C. succumbing to many an aggro/nu metal cliche. The riffs are oftentimes mediocre. "Cowards" sounds like the whiney little sidekick of "Americ*nt Evolving Into Useless Psychic Garbage," and while it is novel for its punk energy, it gets old fast. "To Be Me" is decent, but also sounds a bit insincere, as if the band just wrote it to fulfill the lighters-in-the-air requirement. "Eratic" is simply a much less interesting version of "Loyalty." And even the song title "Leave Me Alone" is cringeworthy for it's nu metal cheesiness (the song is equally predictable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Servicable Follow Up To A Masterpiece February 23, 2005
By Joshua
Format:Audio CD
"The Feeding" was never going to live up to "The War Of Art". You have to buy this CD knowing that much. Most noticable is the lack of samples giving it less of a industrial feel. The loss of the keyboard player (Aaron Zilch) really hurt the depth of the music (loved the samples and effects in TWOA). The vocal effort is there on most every song but the beats and riffs are, for lack of a better word, 'blander' or more simplistic than the previous album.

Besides this, the album is still quite good and is a no-brainer for an AHC fan. You most likely have heard the single, "Loyalty". If you take a liking to that song, I would say that "The Feeding" is definatley a CD you want to pick up. I am giving it a 4 out 5 for the lack of depth/overall thickness [>samples] and it simply not being as good as "The War Of Art". Some standouts besides "Loyalty" are "Ridicule" (my fav.), "Cowards", "Pledge Allegiance", "Leave Me Alone", and "Dirty".

Like I said, a very good album and a nice follow up to their juggernaut debut album. BTW, do yourself a favor and dont listen to the idiots that simply review the album as a 'piece of sh*t' and go on to recommend some obscure underground death metal, garage band. Everyone has different tastes, respect that and buy what you want. \m/

I first saw these guys on tour with Mudvayne, and immediately knew they were gonna be big. The concert was on Saturday, so I missed the Headbanger's Ball video. I bought the CD, and I gotta say, I loved it. I made sure to watch HBB the next weekend, and (after wading through all the crap that airs on that show) saw it. I seriously enjoyed the CD and the band. Unfortunately, after Bryan's death, the I was unsure of the band's future.

However, American Head Charge reassured us with promises to continue making music in Bryan's honor. I look forward to the future of AHC, and reccomend that you purchase this CD, or at least the groundbreaking War Of Art.

I was torn here, giving this a rating. I reluctanty went with four, because I have seriously high standards for music. Amazon should really try out a 1-10 scale, it would probably be a lot more accurate in depicting a user's review.

Format:Audio CD
So, after releasing The War of Art in 2001, American Head Charge started making noise for themselves as a dominant, up-and-coming nu-metal act with a bright future ahead of them. They had the support of many of their comrades/touring partners, Rick Rubin as their producer, and a spot on Ozzfest to help them further cement their popularity.

Well, for what ever reason, the band went on hiatus after "The War of Art", which led to a three and a half year span between releases. During that time, the band had changed members, changed labels, lost Rick Rubin as their producer, and dealt with substance abuse issues. By the time this album came out, AHC was well-behind the pack; playing nu-metal for an underground crowd while underground metal tastes were going toward the metalcore/NWOAHM movements. The band went on to tour behind this effort, suffered through the accidental death of their guitarist, and put out a live DVD with a CD containing B-Sides and Rarities. However, the band's been considered inactive for the past two years and it's anyone's guess as to when they'll reconvene or if that will ever happen at all.

Personally, none of the tracks on this album stood out to me as remarkable. In fact, when I heard "Loyalty" for the first time, I thought it took too much influence from Lamb of God's "Ruin" for me to consider it original sounding. While the guitars weren't too bad, the vocals were a tad generic and the drumming was dull and repetitive.

Had this album been released in, say, 2003, I could see the album being considered a "sophomore slump" where they could have recorded something beyond that to regain respectability. But given the time between releases, it's very likely that this band's better days are regrettably behind them.

5.0 out of 5 stars not quite the masterpiece...
That The Art of War was, but still very, very strong. Aggression and brutality, of course, but with an edge of original thought and intelligence rarely heard in this genre. Read more
