Hot new song from American Terror. Highly controversial and so fuckin great!

American Terror's new album "Influencer" is a scathing attack on the world and some
people's judgemental attitudes. The lead song "Judgement" is a killer!
American Terror was formed in early 2019 with a vision by vocalist Brad Cox to
create a band with an aggressive, unique sound, blending metal, punk, and hard
rock. Brad teamed up with longtime friend and guitarist Pat Valley to get the new
project off the ground. Completing the line-up is drummer Rob Hammersmith (Skid
Row), bassist Murphy Karges (Sugar Ray), and DJ Soulman (Phunk Junkeez).

With the band’s lineup in place, they set out to assemble a team to help with their
launch. Brad reached out to legendary producer Mike Clink (Guns N’ Roses,
Megadeth, Metallica). The two of them have collaborated on numerous projects
and have a publishing & music company, Black Paw Music. Mike’s enthusiam after
hearing the EP led to an introduction to Thom Hazaert at EMP Label Group (co-
founded by Megadeth bassist David Ellefson), and three weeks later, a deal was
signed. A soft release of their first EP in the Summer of 2019 was followed by
singles in the Spring of 2020. Momentum built quickly with features on Spotify’s
editorial and algorithmic playlists in addition to spots on over 230 user playlists,
exposing the band to a larger audience. With 16,000+ monthly listeners, 40,000+
streams, and 28,000+ YouTube views across multiple channels, prominent Rock
media took notice and covered the band’s progress, including Blabbermouth,
BraveWords, Ultimate-Guitar, and KNAC.

With the momentum leading up to their first full-length release and the world on
lockdown due to Covid-19, American Terror decided to focus on tracking new
material and shaping their sound. According to Brad, the band “elevated the
project to a new level and truly found their identity”. The American Terror story is
still being written and the band is excited for the next chapter!
