All Out War – Assassins in the House of God

Assassins in the House of God starts hard and ends, well, hard. This metalcore outfit really knows what they’re doing with their sound, and it shows in the resulting record. The album is fast, the drums punching and the guitar stabbing with distortion. If you’re looking for a band whose lyrics are easily understood, turn elsewhere: the vocals on this album are fairly obscured by the hardcore punk screaming style that’s become fairly typical. After a few tracks, though, the vocal style starts to elucidate the lyrics with a little more ease. All Out War hasn’t created some revolutionary, groundbreaking album with Assassins in the House of God, but to fans of the genre, the driving, in-your-face attitude is well worth a listen.
