Surprisingly well done. - 87%

From what I’ve gathered, Fantom Warrior is Thrash Metal band from the U.S who had only one album, and a self-distributed demo.

This album is a great Thrash gem, with Punk elements from a mostly unknown act. It has a hand full of above-average riffs from both guitarists. Impressive guitar solos from lead guitarist, Steve Schley. Often very raw with a lot of blast beats and really fast drumming with some creative fills that don’t get boring or repetitive. If you’re not into speedy Thrash with screaming vocals, there are plenty of softer songs that still manage to stay heavy with enjoyable riffs.

There’s not much bad I can say about this, except I wish this band had put out a few more albums. They could have really grown into a memorable Thrash band if had done so.

Overall not a bad album from an obscure band from a Thrash band in the U.S. If you can find this album, I suggest giving it a listen or two, as it’s as it’s pretty interesting.
