I have always been a fan of Sadus, back to their debut "Illusions". Those of you not familiar with Sadus need only know one member of the band, Steve DiGiorgio. The man is the backbone of the band and plays the bass like a monster. A monster with more than 5 fingers on each hand it would seem. Sadus plays thrash with a bit of death metal thrown into the mix. This album sticks to that formula while not being incredibly excellent or even very good.

This album suffers from one main thing, or one member. The lyrics and the guitar on this album is not what I want from a legit thrash band that has been around as long as Sadus. The guitar is tuned really low in the mix. Most likely so the Steve DiGiorgio's bass can be heard much better. The bass lines are excellent, but this is thrash, and the riffs are what should be in the forefront of the music. Next we have the lyrics. Where do I begin, how about with the stupidest rhyme scheme in metal; rhyming way with day, away, and finally say. When I hear this rhyme all I can think is "I can lay by the bay and make things out of clay, I just may. What do you say?" from Happy Gilmore. A movie meant to be stupid, not lyrics meant to be serious. The drumming and bass is great on this album, why do the lyrics and guitar have to suck so much.

This is an easily looked over album. It doesn't really shine as an album. There is one track that stands out as undeniably awesome. That track is No More. With its thunderous bass and drum lines and its out of this world synthesizer parts, it feels like it could be part of a new genre called space metal. One awesome track with a bunch of other tracks lacking riffs makes this album not a thrash essential. The laughable lyrics sink this album as a whole much more. I highly recommend listening to No More, but the rest of the album is a joke as a result of the lyrics.
