This is a good album. I love the leads, solos, the fast riffing, the drums, and don’t mind the vocals. I can see where there is a James Hetfield influence, in the way the vocalist sings words like “mind” (Mi-eend). It seems as though there is a lot of that going on these days, which is cool by me. I love that there are a lot of thrash influenced bands out today. Anyway, this album seems to have a mix of emo vocals (with that Hetfield thing thrown in) and fast thrashy type pop metal somewhat reminiscent of 80’s hair metal played with more dexterity. If this is what rock kids listen to these days as opposed to nu-metal, then it’s a good thing, much better than pop-punk, nu-metal, or god forbid, hip-hop. As for me, I’m a relative geezer (31 years), so when I heard “Scream, Aim, Fire” on the radio, I heard classy musicianship, without wondering if it was popular or not. Anyway – dissertation aside, if you like fast Children of Bodom style playing but in a happier shade of emotions, this might be for you.
