I have no idea how to even describe what this album sounds like. If youíre familiar with the rest of American Steelís discography, know in advance that this album sounds nothing like the others. Not even a little bit. If anything, it kind of sounds like Rogueís March, but thatís a stretch. Rogueís March is tame compared to this. To put it simply, this is the most punk album Iíve heard in my life. No hyperbole. The speed is fast as fuck. The vocals are gritty and raw. The lyrics are intelligent and political. This isnít the American Steel you know from Destroy Their Future and Jagged Thoughts. This doesnít sound like Alkaline Trio or any other band like that. This is straight-up, in-your-face punk rock, and American Steel never drops the speed for a second.
