This is killer piece, awesome masterpiece. Good 80's style killer catch up songs , bombast beats, ass kicking melodies and vocals. Best TM album for long time, even it has melodic touch.
I wish Nik would reviev it
Life is to short for LOVE, there is many great things to do online !!!

Another great album from F&J. It could have been more original, but whatever as long as it's high quality. It's still way more original than the stuff most younger thrash acts tend to put out every now and then.
You've got a lot of guts. Let's see what they look like!

Nothing new here. But straight solid thrash from one of the most underrated bands

I loved End of Chaos, thought it was 2019's most underappreciated album. Looking forward to getting a listen to this

edit - first 2 listens were quite good. Catchy, energetic, great drumming and cool guitar solos. Top notch melodic thrash

Another top release from these guys. Really enjoyable and cringe-free old school metal. They are probably the only thrash metal band I like...

Haven't actually gotten a chance to listen to any Flotsam & Jetsam before this album, and I might have to after this.

Good songwriting and excellent performances as usual, but I can't give this an 8, because the entire thing sounds so overly compressed. I wonder what the producer/sound engineer was thinking when shaping this album's soundscape.
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".

Wow, this is an excellent thrash metal album, better than everything thrash released last year and AOTY contender for me.

I loved their last two. I loved this one also. 3 great albums back to back and so many fresh ideas in a genre that has been done to death. Truely remarkable.

I feel this is bit over hyped. Only plus point is they are still producing some catchy numbers in a done-to-death genre but those are also not new. For me its just a good album worth of few spins and I don't find any aoty material here.
In the beginning I was made of clay. Then I bit the apple and they changed me to metal 🤘

Great album. Perfect blend of US power and Bay Area thrash.

Almost instantly it seems that I am listening to a follow up to Heathen's The Evolution Of Chaos album. Which is good, to clarify, in case somebody thought it was bad. The band really sounds to have gotten back on the right track with their songwriting and there are some superb songs; the first three songs are killer, The Walls is another success and Seven Seconds 'til the End of the World is probably my favorite on the album.

How good of an album it is at the end of the day? Definitely top 5 from the band. Good metal music in the modern times, and while it can be a be little bit overproduced and too long for old timers, it has good song material, great musicians and one of the best singers in this genre. Flotz 'til death!!, I suppose.
