American Steel [Destroy Their Future]

American Steel – Destroy Their Future (c) 2007 Fat Wreck Chords American Steel are back with a new record, their first for Fat, and I say it is a good one.  These veterans of the East Bay punk scene return with 12 tracks of gritty and sonically dark rock and roll.  Stand out tracks include the snarkily spiteful "Mean Steak" and the rockin' yet sad "Old Croy Road".  I may be off the mark here, but I hear a very wide range of influences, including: Leather Face, The Clash, The Lawrence Arms and Dropkick Murphys just to name a few.  I'll admit that I hadn't heard of American Steel before this disc, but I'm totally on the look out for their back catalog.  Speaking of The Lawrence Arms, American Steel are currently out on tour with their label mates, so if they happen to wander to your town, go see 'em and tell 'em I sent ya.–Jerry Actually
