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.
