3 stars American Nervoso is the first album by Botch. Botch is very technical and experimental compared to some of their peers, as they are at the center a metalcore and hardcore punk band, but they're not only good at playing that style of music, they also take it and add their own flavor to it. Really the only other bands that Botch remotely sounds like are Coalesce, Converge, Daughters, and maybe even some post metal bands like Isis, but they still have their own unique style of music. The album itself it pretty short as common with hardcore but the songs have a lot going on even though they have shorter lengths. The playing is very technical and their are some strange song structures and time signatures.

The bands follow up and final album, We are the Romans in my opinion is better but American Nervoso is a very creative album. The sound would evolve on the bands follow up a year later. A nice piece of metalcore and hardcore.
