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.Read more ›
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/
Their second album `The Feeding,' came out in 2005, four years after their debut album `The War Of Art,' and featured the tracks `Loyalty,' and `Cowards,' both of which had music videos at the time.
While The Feeding could not fully live up to its predecessor in terms of power, impact and memorable songwriting; it did surpass it in other areas such as clarity, focus and was much more succinct than The War Of Art, as well as having a better production job.
Standout tracks include the astounding single `Loyalty,' which is one of the band's greatest moments, as well as `Pledge Allegiance,' `Dirty,' and `Take What I've Taken,' all of which are fine examples of the band's industrial tinged mixture of ferocity and melody.
On The Feeding, the band's influences were less audibly on their sleeves, and you can't so much pick out individual bits that sound like Ministry, early Deftones or whoever, the band have more thoroughly developed their own style and refined the formula they started years before.
While `The Feeding,' may have come a little too late at the tale end of a dying scene, it is still a superb album to listen to that on its own merits deserves to be thought of more favourably than just as the final album from a band that missed its window.
If you like American Head Charge, pick up a copy without hesitation, the album is a real grower. Now with the band finally reunited and creating new music, this is an excellent and overlooked record to revisit.

10 years later and it's still one of THE best post-2K albums ever! Can't wait for their new CD Tango Umbrella to be dropped in my mailbox!!!Published 10 months ago by Shadezzz
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 morePublished on May 17, 2014 by Daniel W. Bleier

This is a great record, its not "Trepenation" or "War Of Art" because its not supposed to be and you wouldn't have a true 'AHC collection without it. BUT! Read morePublished on September 23, 2009 by Derek T. James
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. Read morePublished on May 11, 2009 by Mike
While I loved their debut, I was blown away by this one. Better songwriting, better hooks, more vocal range, more diversity in song types. They've grown in just about every way. Read morePublished on April 12, 2007 by Lukas J. Running
