If you’re on the search for intoxicatingly energetic metal with a high sense of immediacy then I’d strongly advise you to look no further than American Wrecking Company who are no doubt a group that have managed to build a strong cult following. Their new single, ‘Everything and Nothing’ is crushing to say the least. If ‘amps up to eleven’ was ever on the verge of losing its meaning and credibility then this song most certainly carries the flag for such an apophthegm. Everything about it is just very bold and very direct and you really get a thrill listening to the all-pervasive crunching quality ever so prevalent in the riffs. They’re a group that aren’t the easiest to pinpoint but I’d say they fit into something of a progressive hybrid of punk and metal. It isn’t one-hundred percent visceral to the degree that one may consider it tied to the constrictions of primordial emotion. There is, in fact, a cerebral quality to the song which would be enough in my estimation to prevent certain sectors of the crowd from deeming it too ‘brash’ or ‘loutish’, among other pejoratives one has a tendency to vouchsafe to self-respecting groups. Intricacy rears its head in a stylish and understated sort of manner. It is set in 4/4 throughout and it consistently remains in the key of B. What is most interesting about the song is that it’s based around a singular series of notes but with a tendency to employ different variations of the same said series of notes which works very well and unlike other instances of which this technique is interpolated it most certainly doesn’t become stale. The group practically emanates an all-encompassing display of energy and enthusiasm.
