I love this guys so much!
Maybe it's not my favorite release, but still a pretty solid album.

Man, it sure feels good to listen to some thrash for a change. Nothing groundbreaking here, but still pretty great.
I am not nor have I ever been a musician or a member of a one-man band, especially a band that has a name that starts with "D".

After two listens, I am underwhelmed. I have not heard anything unique or interesting about this album. I have done all of that on World Gone Dead and Born of the Bomb better. One exception is Civilization where they played with the organ and roll'n'roll vibes, but I did not really like that either.

At the same time, can't wait to see Lich King live in Prague again.

I can't say that I enjoyed listening to this album. More specifically, it did not evoke any real emotions in me. But it's just me, don't know about you guys.

"more chaos less thrash" is what I call this album. It could be better. I think they could spend more time to evaluate and overthink the riffs.
What goes by is life to be taken

So far, the level of thrash this year has been great. I remember Lich King released back-to-back 3 records in 2010, 2011, 2012 with all having success in its perusal; especially "Born Of The Bomb" which gone onto record as one of their finest releases to this date. Indeed, it must be sort of pressure to lift the bar from where they left and eventually, two things could have happened: either they have surpassed "Born Of The Bomb" or fall flat out with no single memorable riffs.

The new release is nowhere in comparison to earlier work of LK. Two songs stands out here - Our Time To Riot and Civilization.

"Cut The Shit" needs to be played before every Manowar show.
