The 30th anniversary of this masterpiece was in March. I chose this day in particular as a way to remember the two years that have passed since our dear friend and metalstormer Marcel left us.

As Marcel would’ve point out to all of you: Fear Of God’s debut is one of the most overlooked jewels in thrash metal. It is dark. It is brooding. It is soaked in gothic misery. No thrash album has sounded this harrowing before or since. This is mostly due to Dawn Crosby’s unique persona. Her cries are filled with unshakeable anguish yet at times are most beautiful and delicate. Her tragic fate looms over Within The Veil but the music remains so infectious that you will revisit it again and again.

Yesterday is dead and gone
Tomorrow is out of sight

Don't think it's underrated, tbh it's rated pretty high everywhere. It's a good album and people generally seem to perceive it as such.

Its good album, in those days there was not so many female fronted bands, I hear HM, sortha industrial touch, a bit thrash, decent album, old one, but good, and low production, old school recording makes it better
Life is to short for LOVE, there is many great things to do online !!!
