While certainly not unsung in the minds of people in the know, Deathrow sort of seemed to get buried in the German thrash pantheon under more popular bands like Kreator, Destruction, and Sodom; and even if they are recognized, it is usually for their more simplistic and primal works like Satan's Gift and Raging Steel. Their third release, however, is their best, a technical masterpiece of violent thrash precision.

Absolutely true ...

  More like the most overlooked and underrated album in thrash history. I've been getting a little burnt out on thrash lately, but this album still sounds great. File these guys along with Toxik, Aspid, and Coroner in the "Holy tech thrash insanity this shit needs to be more well known!!!!" category.

Rating: 10 Killer album. Have no idea what happened to the band after "Raging Steel", but it sure changed them for the better. The compositions and song structures are totally different here. Songs are longer, but they don't feel like dragging or filler. Even the vocals are better and more varying on this album. And of course, there is the technicality/prog thing going here, keeping it interesting. Like the whole thing went to next level. While the whole album seems like a highlight, to me the latter part of the album with songs such as "Watching The World", "Narcotic" and "Machinery" is a bit more appealing than the anterior part. One question remains: should the album be given 9 or 10 because of the subpar production? I'm feeling like going with a 10 on this, but it could be either way.

Because the band is invisible

  Another mediocre 80s thrash album being hailed as something exceptional nowadays.

That sort of thing seems to happen all the time with thrash and death metal. I'll never understand why people hail bands like Massacre as some kind of death/thrash metal icon when, as far as I can tell, they were sub-par for the time (and still are)
