Thousand year War/Kingdom Of America/2013 CD Review


  One  Thousand  Year  War  are   a  band  originally  from  Alaska  but  now resides  in  California  which also  has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  with  a  musical  style  that  I  would  describe  as  being  melodic  black/death  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  self  released  2013  album  "Kingdom  Of  America".

  Drums  range  from s low,  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  some  blast  beats  being  utilized  at  times,  while  the  bass  playing  has  a  very  dark  tone  with  riffs  that  follow  the  riffing  that  are  coming  out  of  the  guitars and  at  times  they  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from s low,  mid  paced  to  fast  riffs  that  combine  melodic  black  metal  with  death  metal  as  well  as  throwing  in  some  punk  influences  in  the  riffing,  while  the  lead  guitars  are  very  melodic  sounding  black/death  metal  guitar  solos  and  leads  that  utilize  some  traditional  metal elements.

  Vocals  range  from  deep  death metal  to  high  pitched  black  metal  screams  as  well  as  some  clean  singing  being  utilized  at  times,  while  the  lyrics  cover  a  rallying  cry  against  the  modern  capitalistic  super  powers,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  strong,  powerful,  heavy  and  professional  sound  for  being  a  self  released  recording  where  you  can  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  this  recording.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  One  Thousand  Year  War  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  band,  you  should  enjoy  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Kingdom  Of  America"  and  "Vulture  Eyes".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
