Limited edition of the eleventh full-length studio album by legendary American Thrash Metal band.
Following the years of tribulations together, New York Thrash Metal legends have soldiered on despite the constant line-up, shuffling and uncertainty to come back recharged, refocused and more intent on providing the type of Thrashing material from their heyday.
The band’s first album with new guitarist Jonathan Donais (replacing Rob Caggiano), that was originally released February 26, 2016 after a five-year gap between releases.
Being around for as long as they have, this here is pretty similar to what’s been apart of their sound for the majority of their career, which focuses on the tight, melodic twin guitar-based Thrashing, that’s featured here. The riffing is highly melodic and makes for quite a rousing series of high-energy riffing, that’s quite heavy while; also bringing along plenty of melodic harmonies in the vocals as well as the strong leads throughout here, create a strong sense of surging melody that compliments the varied heavier riffing. That comes from a selection of pieces that range from Hard Rock-inspired numbers, mixed with some mid-tempo groove to their traditional stomp-style, Thrashing that raises the energy considerably and even drops the energy level down into a more slower-paced crawl, with the addition of ballad-esque numbers that occur here. Which are also quite evenly mixed into the album as a whole. This is quite a dramatic variety that delivers on a dynamic level quite readily with this one, having such a varied, yet still contained feel and tone that carries throughout the album, as a proper whole, which makes for a highly-appealing time here, that offers up enough sections from each part of their career, that it readily allows for anyone to get into it.
With plenty of variety to get any fan of any point of their career covered, which makes this one of their brightest and most enjoyable releases in their vast catalogue, and ranks as one of the better releases of the year, which makes this an easy choice for fans of the band’s more recent output, or the band in general as well, as the Old School Thrash Metal scene overall!! An elite Metal force!!!
The album peaked at #9 on the Billboard 200.
