Founded in 2011, American Standards has released a self titled EP, three full length records one right after another year after year, and now in 2017 they have released their most emotionally charged and pointed record. Within this record, American Standards has found a way to incorporate their social commentary with loss and sorrow. This is a solid and cohesive record that is fueled by plenty of anger, depression, sorrow and many more emotions that you get to experience alongside with the band. Everything on this record seems to be left out on the table. No punches are pulled and no emotions are spared with this release and that makes it just makes this release just that much better.

Throughout this release, you can really feel where American Standards is coming from, whether they are talking about social and political issues or personal loss. Each emotion can be felt and each lyric can be felt as they hit you right in the chest. Once you press play, you begin a chaotic, noise filled hardcore ride with these maniacs and it definitely is incredibly enjoyable. There isn’t a track on this release that you could do without or that you would want to take out as each of them are just as solid as the ones that came before it.

The majority of the tracks on this release are chaotic and filled with plenty of neck snapping hardcore noise for you to bruise your brain to. The spastic riffs and the tumultuous drumming has your head spinning in minutes as the sharp and throat shredding vocals poke through-and add to-the sonic madness. Each track is a whirlwind of harsh noises, turn-on-a-dime tempo changes and just pure neck breaking energy. Once you begin listening you have no choice but to head bang until your head does fall off and I’m sure American Standards would have it no other way. This is a heavy, head stomping and unrelenting release that comes at you full tilt all the way through.

Throughout Anti-Melody, each note can be felt hitting you square in the jaw, each lyric can be heard clearly, and each emotion can be felt. Anti-Melody is a well crafted and executed record that not only brings social and political issues to the table, as well as plenty of deep emotion that you might not hear all that often. American Standards does a great job of portraying exactly what they are feeling and they do a great job of getting all of their points across clearly and loudly so that we all can hear them.

Overall, Anti-Melody is a great record. You are treated to so much while listening to this record. There is a lot of content that is packed within this record and all of it is spot on.
