Bottom Line Up Front: This band is like some kind of government lab crossbreed between Shinedown, Motorhead, and Avenged Sevenfold, that has escaped quarantine and is wreaking havoc in city streets. There's a lot for a metal head to like here.

General Description: These guys take some of the turn of the century nu-metal sounds established by bands like Shinedown, Sevendust, and Soil, and push it well into metalcore territory, while also harking back to the metal gods of the 1980s and 1990s (like Seether and Motorhead). The updated synthesis of sounds they create does not come across as unfamiliar to a seasoned metal fan, but it is a reliably good sound that is easy to dig your teeth into. This album is well named; the lyrics express a Neo-American, proto-Nietzschean worldview that is simple, yet profound and deeply compelling.

Highlights: This is an updated take on good, old fashioned METAL. You're not going to hear anything unexpected, but I assure you that no matter what kind of metal you like, your expectations will be met with this album. All of the tracks on this album are more than decent, but the two standouts are Bloodstone and The Other Side. Bloodstone is a brutal prayer to a violent God. It opens with a quiet, almost spiritual prelude that builds up quickly to the verse, which is a call to seize the day. The song climaxes with some very nice rhythmic riffs on the words, "It's waiting for you..." The Other Side is a slower, more thoughtful track. Mark Wojtkiewicz shows off his more polished vocals in this track. The song is about having to sow to reap; having to give to the universe to get something in return. It's a nice change from the other more hard-driving tracks on the album.
