American Head Charge
American Head Charge, abbreviated AHC, is a metal band from Minneapolis, Minnesota USA. American Head Charges sound has often been described as an intense hybrid of the US Chicagoan industrial band Ministry and Iowan metallers Slipknot.
After settling on the name American Head Charge, the band came up with their debut album on the underground fringes of the industrial metal scene with their 1999 album Trepanation. Head Charge have earned nominations at the Kerrang! Awards on two occasions.
The personnel on their debut album saw Heacock and Hanks (now called Martin Cock and Banks respectively) joined by guitarist David Rogers, Justin Fowler on keyboards and samples and Chris Emery on drums.
Second guitarist Wayne Kile and keyboard player Aaron Zilch joined them during mid/late 1999. American Head Charges further exposure came through two track offerings to Dwell Records tribute albums, namely in homage to industrial bands Ministry and Marilyn Manson respectively.
While performing at a support showcase featuring System of a Down in Des Moines, Iowa during August 1999, Head Charge gained attention of American Recordings and later signed a deal with them.
After the local success of Trepanation, they moved to Los Angeles to begin work on their second album at the infamous Rubin-owned Houdini Mansion.
Rick Rubin-produced-The War of Art was released on August 28th, 2001, selling over 12,000 copies in the United States in it's first week.
American Head Charge, commenced a live schedule in support of their major label debut. They began their professional touring experience on Ozzy Osbourne's 2001 Ozzfest, playing 3rd on the Second Stage for the entire tour.
The group then snagged a slot upon the Pledge of Allegiance festival tour, headlined by bands like Slipknot, Mudvayne, Rammstein and System of a Down.
In the month of December the following year, American head Charge co-supported Slayer alongside Ohio metalcore band Chimaira for the first two months of the American God Hates Us All tour. Their following shows were headlined by Kittie, hardcore punk band Biohazard, and Texan stoner rockers Speedealer.
Preceding a 4 month Scandinavian/European/UK/Japanese tour headlined by Slipknot, they also toured with additional bands like Coal Chamber, Ministry, Gravity Kills, Hatebreed, Static-X, Mudvayne, and Otep.
Guitarist Wayne Kile departed from the industrial outfit in early April 2002, paving the way for the induction of former Black Flood Diesel guitarist Bryan Ottoson.
Just 24 hours after getting the offer to join the band, Ottoson flew to Los Angeles. He duly marked his inclusion to the band participating in the filming of the music video Just So You Know.
After a two year hiatus, the remains of the band, with a couple new faces, pulled together and started writing and recording for upcoming albums.
During the demo process, The American Recordings label owner Rick Rubin became increasingly elusive, and the band subsequently asked to be let out of their recording contract. Rick Rubin respected their request without any legal squabbles.
American Head Charges producer on The Feeding was The War of Art's engineer Greg Fidelman. The Feeding was released on February 15, 2005, and only spawned one radio and video single: Loyalty.
