It's about time Bay Area got back to its roots! - 86%

PowerMetalGuardian, February 11th, 2003

It's nice to see that a thrash band can come out with an album in 2000, sounding like 80's thrash. Not only does it sound like 80's thrash, its the fucking BAY AREA! Plus it is more heavier than 80's thrash. This album is not a waste in one bit. Guitar Riffs are really jamming, great riffs (like Testament). Best riff on this album would have to be the opening to Darkness Has Come! Vocally this album has its moments. Sometimes they are cool screaming thrash speedy, other times they are inconsistent and too low for this type of music. Lyrics are also cool, murder, death, chaos, the usual! Solo's are really great, like Testament or Exodus style! The drumming is excellent, but I think they could have toned it down a bit on the drums. Sometimes the drum overpower everything else, except the vocals. This is a great album to get if you want to headbang nonstop! Honestly, even the intro is filled with headbanging delite!!! Great sons to check out are: Chaos to Murder, It Burns, Fallen One, Darkness Has Come, and some others. This album is here to prove that thrash has survived its long decade of superior madness!!!!!!
