The album's opening title track "American Capitalist" immediately gets the listener's blood pumping mad with an awesome opening riff, and is further highlighted by heavy, pummeling riffing and double bass drumming throughout, along with Ivan's harsh, angry bellows, as well as an fantastic melodic sung chorus, and a flashy, ripping melodic guitar solo are also featured as well. A great opener and a definite highlight this one is for sure. Meanwhile, the album's second cut and first single "Under and Over It" keeps the high energy coming with more heavy, stomping riffs and stomping drums, along with another awesome chorus that features some more great double bass kick action, as well as another sweet solo to boot. Next up, track three "The Pride" is another memorable highlight (and my favorite track on here I might add) that is very groovy musically and features some slightly rap-ish vocals from Ivan, (but yet far from being actual rap so no need to worry), and features some very moving riffs during the verses, along with more awesome double bass drumming, plus another awesome guitar solo, and an amazingly catchy sing-a-long chorus to top it all off. The chorus in the song is probably my favorite chorus on the entire album, it's just amazing. Another added note about "The Pride" is that the song's verses list all kinds of various references from Johnny Cash, Dimebag Darrell, John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Brett Favre, LeBron James, JFK, and Mickey Mouse, to PBR (Pabst Blue Ribbon), Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Jack Daniels, Smith and Wesson, to Disneyland, the White House, NFL (National Football League), NBA (National Basketball Association), Nascar, Playboy, Facebook, and Myspace. According to guitarist Zoltan Bathory, the meaning of the song is that "You can be a zebra or join the lion pride. You have to rebel against your circumstances, laziness, and mediocrity—not the system."
After three straight ball-busting, heavy stomping tracks, the album's fourth cut "Coming Down" which is yet another amazing highlight here, mellows the pace down a little bit, but still packs a serious punch both lyrically and musically. The guitar solo in this song is just absolutely outstanding, as well as Ivan's clean, melodic vocals. The song is also highlighted by a great blend of melodic acoustic guitars and heavier power chords, and more excellent drumming, plus another excellent chorus, and some pleasant acoustic strings to close out the song. Afterwards, track five "Menace" picks the album right back up with a barrage of massive, storming, chugging guitars, and pummeling double bass patterns all lead by Ivan's mean, in your face screams and growls, plus there's another extremely solid guitar solo, and another great chorus to boot. Following that, "Generation Dead" is an awesomely crushing hard rock anthem that features a really cool, catchy bass intro, and is also tatooed with more heavy, wall crushing riffs, and more of Ivan's powerful vocals. The song is also highlighted by yet another fantastic chorus, plus there's also another nice melodic, winding solo thrown in for good measure. Next up, track seven "Back for More" is another favorite which keeps the momentum going with a real crushing heavy metal stadium-like atmosphere throughout with a dominating fury of heavy, energetic riffing, and heavy, stomping drum beats, and also features more outstanding vocals from Ivan, plus another amazingly uplifting chorus which also features some great double bass kicking, as well as another amazing guitar solo (and the album's best guitar solo IMO) to top it off.
Moving forward, track eight "Remember Everything" is an excellent power ballad, and a very moving piece of music. Believe me, this is a song that will definitely make you feel so many different emotions inside of yourself. The guitar work throughout this song is very melodic, and the solo is just fantastic, as well as the song's chorus. However, it is Ivan's amazing clean, melodic singing which really makes this song stand out. I mean, the feelings that Ivan puts into his singing really makes it feel as though it's happening to you, and you even feel like breaking down in tears. Such an absolute beautiful, moving piece of music for sure. Next, track nine "Wicked Ways" is a slower yet very heavy and groovy number that chugs along at a nice pace with massive, heavy, crushing riffage, rumbling bass lines, and killer, slamming double bass patterns throughout, and is also highlighted by more amazing melodic singing from Ivan as well. The following track "If I Fall" is yet another excellent and catchy track which starts off with an acoustic guitar intro and then just takes off with an onslaught of killer double bass drums and furious riffing, and harsh/clean vocals that just dominate this track throughout, and finally, closing out the album is the super heavy and aggressive closer "100 Ways to Hate" which boasts one last assault of harsh and angry screaming rant-like vocals that are accompanied by mean, aggressive riffage and blistering double bass drum work throughout guaranteed to get your blood pumping and have you headbanging like crazy. I also dig the chorus in the song, and there's also another nice guitar solo thrown in the mix as well.
All in all, as I mentioned before, "American Capitalist" is an absolute solid punch to the face from start to finish. This album has the correct mixture of aggression and melody, and shows why Five Finger Death Punch continue to improve and outdo themselves and grow musically with each album they put out, and this album here is certainly proof why Five Finger Death Punch are one of the best bands in metal today. Anyways, if you've been a fan of 5FDP from the beginning as I have (take it from me, I've been a big fan of these guys since day one), then by all means, "American Capitalist" is an absolute must have in your collection. Pick up this CD now, crank it up, and bang that head!!! HORNS UP!!! \m/ \m/
