I’m a HUGE speed/thrash fan from the 80s, but somehow I completely missed this band the first time around. Well, it was my loss because this is some great stuff. I just got this CD this year, and I can’t seem to get it out of CD player. Every time I take it out to listen to something else, I end up putting it back in almost immediately.If you are into speed/thrash metal, then this album is a must-have. Great riffs, speed changes, lead guitar work, it’s all here. All the songs are good, and many are flat-out great. It’s a real unknown classic. There’s absolutely no filler and the whole CD just rips from beginning to end.It’s too bad that latecomers to the scene, like Vio-lence and Forbidden, never really found the success of some of their predecessors. For my money, this album is better than anything Testament or Flotsam & Jetsam ever put out during the same time period, and I like both those bands. If you are speed/thrash fan, you’ll love this album.
