To summarize this album in one sentence, think "Pleasure To Kill" meets "Peace Sells." A true hybrid of Bay Area and Teutonic thrash; fast, ripping thrash, and vocalist John Kevill sounds just like Mille Freakin' Petrozza. This album rips along with only a few seconds of slow-ish (as in, sub-200 BPM) scattered througout. The riffs are all textbook headbanging thrash ranging from "Bonded By Blood" to "Peace Sells" to "Scream Bloody Gore," and hitting all points in between. The solos are incredible...both melodic and shreddy...not at all like Slayer's "cat through a fan" whammy wankery (closer to Gary Holt's melodic whammy wankery).
For highlights...pretty much the entire album, but Beneath The Waves, Combat Shock, and the opener, Total War flat-out slay everything in their path. Hell, I'm surprised my stereo didn't explode as soon as I pushed play, or that my neighbors are somehow still alive after 40 minutes of being bludgeoned by sledgehammer riff after sledgehammer riff.
Bow before the new torch-bearers of THRAAAAASH!
