THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF AMERICAN TRAITORS played a frenzy of screamy/screechy hardcore goodness during the late 1990s. The continuous onslaught of chunky, thick and raging instrumentals smash together with dark, venomous and downright insane vocals as well as the occasional movie clip. I find the band to be pretty steady in their sound over the course of their discography that only consists of two 7"s, two splits and some compilation tracks that were conveniently packaged together in the posthumous cd release. That sound is spazzy Ruhaeda-esque freakouts with some Saetia sounding, voice tearing, insanely high pitched screams and a slight Love Lost But Not Forgotten touch that, overall, probably belonged on Three One G during their heyday. I personally enjoy their earlier stuff more than the super screechy later stuff. Definitely check out "Sinking Atlantis" which is unreal and the pretty sweet "And So It Goes" has a pretty pissed off ending of, "We won't be happy until the body of the last beaurocrat is dissolved in the blood of the last capitalist."
