After how long they have been around how can they possibly find it within themselves to put out something this good? If you are a thrash metal fan BUY THIS. Topical, angry (surprise), pointed lyrics along with engaging (not worn out) jackhammer riffs. Just when I think metal is out of new riffs this comes along. The guitar leads are crisp, melodic. I’m not a fan of melodic metal but the leads are an interesting change on the powerful rhythms. And it is just one pounding song after another – and without sounding alike. The songs are not boring (like, oh, I’ve heard this a thousand times); quite the opposite. Each one grabs your attention. An outstanding thrash metal cd. I am SO glad I trusted the other reviewers and bought this one. CHEERS!
