Rated 3/5 (60%) (3 Votes)

This is a fun disc. Here we have a Canadian band very much in the vein of Anacrusis or Obliveon, with just a dash of Voivod thrown in. This is quick, light, entertainingly complex Thrash with some absolutely killer guitar licks and a constant level of infectious energy. The band is definitely aiming for a technical vibe, but they never lose track of the metal, and certainly never stray into prog-jazz bullshit. It is refreshing that guitarist/vocalist Jacob Montgomery keeps his vocals distinctly thrash in tone and style, and it adds to the old-school vibe of the album. There's nothing blackened or deathy about this, and it retains a hooky, melodic 80s feel, using the songwriting complexity to build opulent songs full of hooks and cool moments, rather than cramming on the intensity. Melodic, inventive, and relentlessly entertaining.
