A great BT album, and certainly one that showed the band were retaining their gritty edge on the perfectly honed DM sound that would soon follow on latter albums. 'Through the eye of terror' has a nice, gradual build-up into an explosive sound and 'Drowned in Torment' is fast yet keeps a relatively fast pace too.

This is Bolt Thrower's best in my opinion, despite being a little sloppy. 'All That Remains' and 'World Eater' will crush your bones.

By far their best. Even tho I still love it I have to recognize their death metal got softer after Realms Of Chaos. Here they sound like a tank crushing everything in its path.

Interesting you should say, "by far their best" as BT were always remarkably consistent. For uncompromising heaviness though, IVth Crusade is their high water mark for me. They slowed it down a touch in places but for me that doesn't mean it got softer. Far from it. That one really does sound like a tank smashing everyone and everything in it's path.

Love this band.
