Hailing from Portland, Oregon, Amerakin Overdose it’s a more metal then industrial, heavy sextette. Strong riffs, subtle electronic layers, furious vocals filled with consistent message and all the shock rock weaponry turn this project into a deadly machinery. Reminded me of Bile (and their killer “I Reject”), but also their style and sound can be associated with the music of Rob Zombie, Slipknot, Static X, Killswitch Engage, Schnitt Acht, Filter, Cop Shoot Cop, 16 Volt, Marilyn Manson, etc, a powerful, groovy mixture of groove metal strength, modern beats and industrial rock intensity.
Amerakin Overdose has been forged from six very unique individuals. Cody Perez (lead singer), “The Brick” (drums) Freeman Manfree (Guitar),“The Human” (Keyboards /Sequencing ), Enygma ( hype and shenanigans) each member embodies and personifies an element of modern Amerakin culture , power, corporate greed, pride, death, war, sex, money etc…. While the whole planet has overdosed on Amerakin culture and been consumed by double speak and cross talk , western society has lost all hope and embraced the living dead mentality. Amerakin Overdose urges you to “free your mind and see what’s inside” scare yourself to death and be reborn a free soul.
They have self-funded several out of state mini tours and one multi state tour. Also, they have self-produced a full length CD which was released on April 20, 2012; a joint effort between Endless Cycle Media and Human Studios.
They have share the stage with bands such as: 16 Volt, 36 Crazy Fist, American Me, Adema, Spineshank, Primer 55, Pig Hammer, Mary Magdalene, One Eye Doll, Straight Line Stitch, The Devastated, Motograter, Kyng, Chevelle, Five Finger Death Punch, Korn, Quensryche, Genocide Syndrome, All That Remains, Cousin Cletus, Black Heart Vacancy, Wicked Wayz, Young London, Hinder, Eye Empire, Interim Divine, Kill Devil Hill, Boondox, Kill Devil Hill.
I would highlighted the extremely sticky, Marilyn Manson fueled, shock rock anthem “Trance Dance Motion”; the hurricane of the Slipknot/Rob Zombie flavoured “Corrupt,Dominate,Destroy”; the gloomy tones of “Falling” and “As The World Burns”; The Rammstein strong “Love Hate Lullaby” and the Nine Inch Nails feel-like “Dead Girl on the Dance Floor”.
But this is a 10 track, compact, solid, groovy, no fills and no bulls*it release, make no mistake, it will grind you into the ground.
