Standard thrash of the 90s; I can hear the demise of it and at the same time it's pretty decent; the songwriting isn't anything remarkable, but I can listen to it once -- maybe I even have heard it once before and it just didn't make an impact? I kind of think the vocals are a highlight because of the little bit different approach than what we usually hear in this genre. The Detriment Of Man and Born To This World are my favorites on this record.

It's kind of sad to listen to records like this -- this is not one of the worst of them, but you know this direction... -- because after a few years from this the classic thrash as we knew it was gone.
My vision is augmented
