  1. A bloody good album, I like it a lot. A solid production with some really good tracks. I enjoy this as much as Cross Purposes, Dehumanizer, Headless Cross etc. It has a better sound then the drum-overpowered Tyr and the tinny under-produced Dehumanizer. I didn’t hear this album until this year when I bought a cassette copy, I had let others opinions and crap reviews put me off – big mistake. A great hard rock album.
