The American Plague: God Bless The American Plague


The American Plague is a hard rock band out of Tennessee, their style of music is a blend of southern rock and 70’s metal; I can’t remember the first time I was exposed (get it…exposed…exposed to the plague…never mind) to The American Plague but it was a LONG time ago and I remember I dug what I heard and bought the album God Bless The American Plague.

I wasn’t disappointed, from start to finish it’s true to what I thought it would be, if you’re into metal then chances are you’ll definitely like The American Plague, one of the tracks (number 5) is called Highwayman, it about a hitchhiker who turns out to be a serial killer, but the stand out track for me wasn’t an original tune but a cover of Motorhead’s Ace of Spades, it so good that even Lemmy Kilmister would be proud of it.

There’s a bonus track but it’s just an instrumental and you have to fast forward through twenty minutes (in real time) of dead air to get to it, it’s annoying when bands do that, make you wait for a song that’s not necessarily worth the wait.
