If the nu metal realm is a battlefield, then American Head Charge are locked and loaded. The Ozzfest tour gave metal enthusiasts a sneak peak at the songs included on THE WAR OF ART, and the exposure clearly left a few scorched holes in the earth, making this release among the most anticipated of 2001. AHC vocalist Martin Cock can swing on a dime from a Max Cavalera-style scream to a clean singing voice that would have Mike Patton wondering if he was genetically cloned at birth. Keyboardist Justin Fowler flavors the six-string brutality with atmospheric textures, arpeggiated techno flavors, and on occasion, gentle piano; clearly a departure from what might be expected at first impression. Production guru Rick Rubin tracked THE WAR OF ART in a mansion rumored to be haunted, and that vibe casts its specter into the mix, especially in the mosh-inspiring mantra that closes "Never Get Caught."
