Excellent album, and one that cemented the band's legacy as one of the most promising British DM bands.

One of the classic DM elements. Had a great mix of some grind and doom elements in a few songs. Some notes were played throughout the songs the same time, but enough variety for each to be crushingly different. Karls Growls were one of his best too.

Very overlooked death metal masterpiece.
Next to ...for Victory, the band's best.
Back in those days, when we used to listen to Warmaster, man, this was really THE new path of DM for us. It was so fast, and so powerful, blew our minds.
Highlights: I like all the first four songs very, and equally, much. Second half of this album a bit weaker for me.
