this cd was the first big release from laaz rockit their first video actully 2 videos and I think the first headling tour and another invatation to dynamo and they started to get critics respect and a larger fan base world wide.this release was a total transformation fro their earlier days powermetal with a bit of glam to bay area thrash masters with a something proved they can stand on their own other places other than in california,parts of europe and japan.they used to get guest spots with many bigger bands,support spots due to friends and band/management connections and luck breaks but now they got a good company at the time to puch them and after years of hard work they got some respect and this cd has all great song even the slow one are fabulous.heavy thrash and talent to boot.

To me this is the best I’ve heard from these guys and with the CD costing alot, I settled for the tape. What great service from Alectrics Inc, I would recommend these guys to everyone…Their product came right away and in perfect condition…Even better than described…

this ablum was great in 89 but in it’s improved remastering with new technology this sound alot better yet.the live dvd is great but it lacks the much annihilation priciple only one song but this covers alot of their older matterial and know your enemy has a few songs in the set I wish they didn’t wait 20 years to release this video/dvd set
This album has some of the best thrash metal you’ll ever hear. The power’s there, the speed is there, and the songs are even catchy to boot. My personal favorites include Shadow Company, a cover of the Dead Kennedys’ Holiday in Cambodia, Chain of Fools, and the closer The Omen. This is a MUST for any thrash metal fan, but I’d suggest finding it on LP for about $10 rather than shelling whatever insane price is currently getting asked.
Laaz Rockit rules,this is more of a thrash album rather then speed metal like Know Your Enemy.This album rules,they do Holiday In Cambodia which is a cover song and it just rules by Laaz Rockit.Fire In The Hole starts the album off and the song is awesome and then to end the album is The Omen which is such a perfect ballad song,it’s kind of haunting.I suggest you find Annihilation Principle somewhere else where it’s cheaper,if not it’s worth paying that much for it.This album is different from City’s Gonna Burn and Know Your Enemy,it’s heavier and the singing is different.Please reissue all of Laaz Rockit’s albums.
Song names in order.
1.Fire In The Hole
