Pretty good, was wondering if they were going to do more then just the chugging guitars but they added some stuff at about 2:40 that helped.

Sort of a doomy vibe, but may be because the mastering seems a bit flat to me. Has potential, but I'll pass.

Totally digging that musically (although a little too much chugga chugga, like Black Rider said).  Not a huge fan of that vocal style (but certainly don't hate it).  Can't tell if they are influenced by thrash or "true-metal" or what (maybe both).  I would definitely like to hear more.
American band?

Okay, I found a few more songs on tooyube.  

This one is a bit more thrasy, but I think the vocal style works really well with this one.  I think the production/mastering is holding them back a little bit (like Topshot suggested).  I'm guessing with some tweaking this might be really good.



Here is a galloping American Power-Metal sounding track.  Digging the snarl in the vocals on this one.

They aren't bad for a song or two but all those songs are the same chugga chugga with little variance. Now if they downtuned it and did death metal vocals it'd probably work.

yup. American. Alabama I think. Definitely Thrash influenced. I've seen the guitarist play. He's got a weird technique that relies heavily on his thumb, wrapped around the neck. There are limits to that technique. Hence the chugga chugga. These are their first songs. I'm interested to see how they develop.
