Megaforce is very low profile, I hardly see many of their titles in the market including this one.
Only some Testament's and Overkill's titles are frequently available at music stores. What a shame !
(Another awful thing is all of their titles are analogue, they've never remastered any album in the past 30 years, claiming that's their best effort to maintain the "original sounds". Actually just an excuse of not willing to spend extra money and effort for listeners. What a stingy bag !)

It's old school speed alright. Maybe even a bit too straightforward stuff IMO. Good album in overall, that lacks those really good/killer songs, only the title track being something exceptionally great.

They're coming to my country along with Sacred Reich and Night Demon. I should listen to this. I hope all those bands are great live.
I'm derp.
