To start off, look at the front cover - it is quite easy to tell that this is a band with a sense of humor. While being a band that knows how to have fun, they still manage to create some very tight metal that seems to be steeped in NWOBHM.

This album obviously has a strong emphasis on vocals, seeing as there are two vocalists for the band, both of which are the core members. The first vocalist being Cam Pipes, who sings in a falsetto traditional metal voice - most comparable to Rob Halford on 'Painkiller.' The second vocalist being Jamie Hooper, doing metalcore type screams. The metalcore screams are almost definitely the reason people are wary of this band on first listen, but after becoming accustomed to them they actually prove to be a key part of the bands unique sound. While these harsh vocals give a nice little punch when used as backing vocals, and do a great job filling in certain gaps, they do seem out of place at times; which is probably the reason many people dislike this band.

Good music, annoying vocals. Can't stand it. Applies to all their albums. First one is the worst of course.

The teenager buried deep within the cellar of my mind still appreciates this during the random times a song or two comes on the old Spotify song shuffle, even though it's so far away from anything I typically listen to. These guys sure knew how to have fun while writing.

I actually revisited this and "Fire Up The Blades" this week. Agreed, a little too corny to take seriously, but very fun and energy filled.

I still regularly spin Deadly Sinners and Destroy the Orcs. I also really like Wykydtron.

I don't think it's their best, though. I've always preferred Long Live Heavy Metal.
