When Kataklysm covers The American Way, I really prefer it, doesn't have to be complicated to be cool, and they (Kataklysm) have a sound I like better because of production value and gear.
I like the guitars, but where is the drum style from the american way? Tight rolls and huge fills are missing, I think the big open guitars and cool simple grinding riffs need a technician behind the drums, just not hearing the same intensity and energy. Like on salvation, That intro is a great spot to show off some chops, these drums almost sound..polite somehow lol. anyway, cool album none the less, thanks for posting about it or I would have missed it ❤️ OP
